Hi all, yes still on this bathroom lol. I will be tiling the floor on sunday its a concrete floor. Should i use BAL adhesive or will a normal cement based adhesive from local builders be fine? same with grout? tiles are a darkish colour so we wont be having white grout. Will there be any need to prime or seal the floor before laying the tiles?

thanks in advance peeps appreciate all the help icon_smile.gif
