Myself I like tile, and to split up the floors do something creative, like put on 45 angle or put borders in it. If you don't use the flexible additive your tiles will end up popping the thin set doesn't rally stick to the plywood and that is why cement board goes down but isn't necessary as long as you use the additive, what it really is is glue that gets mixed in part water 50% water 50% additive.
