1/2 or 1/3 offset for bathroom floor tile?


I have a smallish master bath that I am tiling with 12x24 tiles. The tile guy says the hot new thing is 1/2 offset but the place where I purchased the tile says the standard for floor tiles is 1/3 offset due to the possibility of lippage on a floor. The tile guy who is very experienced says he will make my floor completely flat. It has schluter system underneath.

My style of bathroom is between traditional and transitional - have a raised panel cabinet, likely rounded edge countertop but faucets are transitional.

Your help is appreciated and Happy Thanksgiving!
