Room is 56x18 and tile is 12x24. Would you run the 24" side the long way or the short way in the room?

Big room so this task becomes more tedious but I like to lay out the tiles dry first to figure out what layout I like. In a smaller room it helps determining whether you start at the door or along a wall or something to determine where your cuts are.

I'd run the 24" across the room (perpendicular to long walls).
If you run it the other way, it will tend to make the room look longer and narrower than it is.

The "bowling alley effect."
