Basement floor

Gents, I am looking into putting some flooring in on the other side of my basement that is almost finished. I finished up the bathroom, and instead of using ceramic tile, I went with the stick down/groutable 12 x 12 laminate tiles in a diamond pattern.

Poured floor leveler into the bathroom to help get things right after having to concrete over plumbing rough in, then used an adhesive enhancer for concrete floors, stuck them, rolled them, then grouted them. Turned out great.

I am wondering, first of all.........does anyone think that I may run into issues in the future with a flooring setup like this? I am considering doing the same thing in the rec room/bar area of my basement and want to make sure that its don't right prior to making that investment.

First thing is to moisture test.
