Good Questions: Question About Width of Hall Runner

Los Angeles

We recently acquired "A Little of This" Flor tiles to create a runner at the end of our long hallway.  We love the tiles (as does the cat, as you can see) but I keep having this urge to cut one column of tiles in half, so that the total width of the carpet is 26" instead of 39"...

Currently, the edges of the carpet are about an inch-and-a-half from the baseboard, which seems a little tight, especially given how nice our floors our.  When I described this to my husband and mother, however, they were both puzzled.  Is my instinct right, or should I just leave it as is?Thanks! -Anna

What do you think AT community? We'd personally trim between 3/4"-1" from each side instead of cutting only one FLOR tile in half but would love to hear your opinion on the matter to help Anna's runner dilemma.
