There is nothing quite like the sensation of stepping out of a luxurious, steamy hot bath or shower and onto an icy cold floor – it is just like getting out of a comfy warm bed first thing in the morning and walking in the bathroom barefooted, quickly becoming fully awake at the shock of the electrifying chill felt under your feet. Heated flooring helps make the bathroom the relaxing place it should be and those who are into the at-home spa experience might find this feature especially attractive.
Having a heated bathroom tile floor installed means no more hopping from rug to rug and no longer finding a need to wear socks while washing up at the sink. Plus, it is an energy-efficient way to keep the room warm on those frosty winter days. For this reason, you might want to consider adding a heated floor to your bathroom remodel plans.
Those who are concerned about the style limitations of heated flooring, will find that there is an unlimited number of design options for radiant floors. Choices include various patterns and colors in marble, wood, terra cotta, and several other materials – it is not the flooring, but the wiring laid underneath it that produces the heat. The heating element is often a made-to-measure mat that is put in place then covered with mud before the tile is installed on top. This mat comes temperature controlled and can be set to run on a timer. As for energy efficiency, not only does the timer help reduce power usage, but the heated flooring keeps those upon it warmer than traditional heating units can – even when set at a lower temperature.
