Tile on exposed edge (floor)

I am tiling the entrance in our basement, its an area about 9ft deep and 20ft long, the 20ft long side that is not against an exterior wall will transition to carpet and continue on

Is it better to put whole uncut tiles against that edge and tile against that as a reference point, or still go for the exact center of the room? as the starting point and cut these tiles to be equal size to the other side that is against a wall?


House Information: Build 1996, 1500 sq ft basement, 1500 sq ft 1st floor, 800 sq ft 2nd floor, 560 sq ft unfinished attic space on 2nd floor. Insulation: Attic blown fiberglass, walls R-19, Basement R-19. HVAC: Trane xc95m fully modulating furnace, single zone, Trane XL20i commiunicating AC unit, TCONT900 Communicating thermostat.

Those tile are going to show the most, I'd use whole tiles there and use the cut tiles on the outside edges.
