Tile Over Concrete Shower Basin


I'm in the process of planning and budgeting a basement bathroom remodel in my house.

There is a shower in the bathroom which has title walls and an existing appropriately slopped concrete basin. Which works fine for me but my wife doesn't like the look. Can I just tile on top of the concrete? Or are there any additional steps I must take?

Thanks.

You should be able to tile over it, but a pic might help decide what is needed. If it is bare concrete/cement, a thorough might be all that is needed as prep.

Thanks. I'll take a picture when I get home tonight. Also, what is a "thorough"?
