I was planning on replacing the carpet on my middle (entrance) level with wood look tile. The maximums of the dimensions are ~ 25' x 18'. The area is semi-contiguous. The sub-floor is plywood.
However, reading up, lippage can be a major issue with the long wood look tiles if your surface is not quite flat. While I have not measured yet, I suspect my floor is fairly uneven.
Applying self-leveling compound to the area would be unreasonably burdensome in my particular circumstances, and is something I need to avoid.
To help avoid lippage, I am considering using smaller wood look tile (6" x 24") and doing a 8" overlap instead of a 12".
Will using a "smaller" tile be sufficient? Are there other measures that can help?
Or should I just give up and use 12" x 12" or smaller tiles?
Also: With my home, over-building is a real concern; so I aim to avoid overly time or money intensive solutions.
