IMO it depends upon whether you plan to try to move everything out of the way so you use the space in other ways (such as a garage) when not in use. If that is not a factor, then as long as it has a mobile base on it you can always move it around or turn it a different direction way if needed so I would definitely go with a larger one. Smaller saws tend to be portable contractor saws designed to take to a jobsite and would not be my choice for a dedicated shop. Perhaps a better question is to compare the saws you a considering so we can help you decide between them?

BTW, My shop is a 2-car garage but I have so much wood and other stuff stacked in there it is effectively a 1-car. My saw is 62” wide and it never feels cramped to me.
