I have a very uneven wooden floor in my old tired house and I would like to put a carpet down, but first level it.

Can anyone suggest the best way to do this? I was thinking somehow with plywood, or would I use a self leveling compound (which is very permanent)

Any advise or tips or videos would be so gratefully received!

Depends what you mean by "level it". If the boards are simply uneven then 3.2mm hardboard stapled/nailed is the cheapest and easiest option. If you want to correct levels in the floor to make it level overall then that is a little more complicated.

If boards are cupped then best way is to plywood it then use a fibre smoothing screed. But depends how much you want to spend.
