You cannot lay tile on the floor that you described. If the floor has any flex when you walk on in, the grout and/or the tiles themselves will crack after you install them. Do not depend upon the tiles to create the stiff floor. There is a product known as cement board, (or also called hardi-backer) that professional's use as an additional layer to stiffen up the floor. You need to consult with someone who knows tile installation before trying this by yourself without any background.

: I plan to have a new bathroom suite fitted in my home in the upstais bathroom, and then have the floor tiled. My problem is that when I pulled the carpet away that is on the floor in the bathroom it revealed a floor that is made up of pieces of chip board. I thought planks of wood would be better as a flooring before I start with the new suite. Coud you please advise. Thanks.
