Tiling a basement shower

I have just purchased a 40 yr old home with full unfinished basement. There is an existing shower drain(concrete floor) with shower plumbing. My question is, I want to enclose the shower with glass block or frame walls and ceramic tile, can I tile directly to the concrete floor? If not...what are your suggestions?


Re: Tiling a basement shower

Yes, as long as the concrete floor is clean (i.e. no paint or other materials), you can tile directly onto the concrete using Thin Set.
