Laminate floor layout

I'm laying a 8mm, with underlayment laminate floor. The problem I'm having is the hallway. the hallway is L shaped. The first leg is 47 inches by 268 1/4 inches and the second leg is 47 inches by 157 1/4 inches long. The laminate is 7 5/8 inches wide by 48 inches long. If I use full planks I have 1 1/2inches left over at the edge. This is a very thin plank and I believe this will be problem in the future. Do you have any suggestions as to how to lay this floor? I have divided the plank by the 47 inches to allow 4 inches at the end of each run. My real problem is the turn of the L shaped hallway, due to the 4 inch plank. Other than a " tee moulding" does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for your input...

split the difference....rather than use 6 full planks and a little of a seventh....start with a half plank rather than a full plank. Basically centering the pattern on the space rather than working off of one side with a full plank
