Flooring seams...


Putting down 5/8" t&g plywood subfloor in upstairs bedroom. 11' x 14' room. Was wondering if I should stagger seams( I know I am suppose to) or just have one seam in the middle. Staggering the seams would give me six total seams instead of the one! And I need at least one more sheet of ply! Hardwood floor is going on top.
