I would do it like this:
[_____15 GB ext4 for /_____] [_______________the rest of space, ext4 for /home_______________]
Then, after the installation, I'd add "discard", "noatime" and "nodiratime" options for / and /home:
UUID=[some-long-number] / ext4 defaults,noatime,nodiratime 1 2
UUID=[some-long-number] /home ext4 defaults,noatime,nodiratime 1 1
Noatime and nodiratime tell the system not to update last access time for files and folders correspondingly.
