Would this be ok as a substrate?

Was planning to put this over grouted tile. Is it safe?

The textured side of that would be hard to clean IMO.
Textured tile is easy to keep clean and, sanitize. I you shouldn't use grout or thinset or, glues. Just put them in by laying them on the floor tightly. Plus, tile will cost a lot less.

A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!

I agree and it looks slippery -- I would leave the tile as is --- did you get a slated ceramic tile? Something w/ texture ?
