Default Can i ceramic tile my basement walls

Hello. New to this forum. i have many many pieces of ceramic tile left over from all our bathrooms over the years. The house we have now has an unfinished basement. No leaks. I would like to apply tile directly to wall with some type of adhesive. Prefer something easly like from caulk gun. Will this work. Will grout also stick to these concrete walls. ??

You dont say what kind of walls you have.

If you have concrete walls you could put the tile up with thinset. You will need to mix it up and apply it with a notched trowel.

if you have block walls the surface might be too irregular to support the tiles nicely. If you have block and the surface is flat you can use the same tecnique as with a concrete wall.

have fun
