Tile on concrete

Hello!
Going to put tile in a new bathroom in basement. Any suggestions for best way? Should I put anything between the tile and concrete or apply directly?

Thanks!
Joe

Should be fine. Just make sure that concrete is completely free of dirt or oils.

Apply mastic to the concrete surface, then apply tiles.

Try to break tile joints over sharp changes in concrete surface level if possible.

I discovered a problem...I hadn't really thought it would be a problem, but I sealed the floor a few months ago. From what I've been reading, this will cause problems.
