Have a 2 part question for anyone who is an expert tiler. I am in the process of finishing off our basement. I have an entry way from the garage to the basement that will also provide a hallway to the basement room. This hallway/entry way will be where I want to tile. Should I adhere the tile to the concrete floor directly (have heard yes and no from variosu people) and what type of tile would you recommend??? Please keep in mind that this is where my kids will be taking off there shoes and boots before heading upstairs.

Thank you for all your help in advance,
