Where to position wood-carpet divider at door


I am puzzled where to position the divider between hardwood and carpet at a bedroom door. Please see the picture. There is existing carpet on the left and on the right is a hallway that will have hardwood flooring. The hallway also used to have carpet but I got rid of it. I thought the best would be if the divider is exactly under the door when it's closed. Are there general guidelines or a rule of thumb how to divide the two floor coverings at a door?

For this simple question you do not even need a picture. Get over yourselves, you're not fixing an airplane.

Transition under the door. That way you see only wood on one side and carpet on the other.
