And a /56 gives you 256 subnets. When you remove unnecessary
heirachical delegation / routing that still supports a reasonable
sized home network.
A /48 would be better but getting the allocation working is the
first step. It's easy enough to make a /48 not work if you insist
on heirachical delegation.
