Ceramic tiles and Delta FL?

How do I do my bathroom with ceramic If I am using delta fl in my basement. I am thinking I would omit the delta in the bathroom area, and use cement board in thinset directly on the concrete slab.. this would make the bathroom about 1/8 lower that the carpeted area.. would this be ok? any suggestions?

should i just skip all this and put down some elcheapo vinyl flooring??

I've set alot of tile in basements, my preference is to use a product called ditra as an underlayment, it's made by Schluter Systems. I would not recommend setting tile directly on the slab, although alot of hacks will do it that way. I don't install or recommend vinyl flooring, el cheapo is right, & I intend that any floor I lay to be permanent. I'd also recommend against using cbu over a slab, any cracks in the slab will rather quickly transfer thru the tile job. Ditra will handle this problem, as well as, a variety of other concerns. To check out info on ditra, go to www.schluter.com.
