I need to tile my cloak room and on removing the carpet there, i realized that it has cork tiles glued to it. Removing the carpet has also caused a huge difference in floor levels between inside the cloak room and outside room adjoining it.
How can I raise the level of the floor - so as to be able to put Porcelin tiles on it? I don't think I can directly apply adhesive to the cork tiles as that might expand/contract at a differnt rate than the adhesive?
Attaching a pic of the floor.

I then tiled directly onto the concrete subfloor, but if you need to raise it a bit before tiling, a self-levelling screed would do the job nicely.
2 decades later, and barring the grout needing a damn good clean, it's stood the test of time (which is a small miracle, considering I didn't have much of a clue what I was doing at the time).
