Hang panels vertical or horizontal?

panel placement & reflections

In this first video of the year I want to focus on a simple question, but one that can easily drag you down into a complicated rabbit hole:

Should you hang your panels vertically or horizontally on the wall?

Is there a significant difference between these two options? Which orientation makes more sense for your room?

As so often, we need to look at the bigger picture to get a proper answer.
