Radiant floor heat can add a level of comfort to your bathroom you can’t really appreciate until you experience it for yourself.
Remodeling a bathroom can be one of the most enjoyable improvements in your home. From custom showers to heated towel racks, the choices are wide and varied. However, the most common regret that I hear from clients and people in general – “we should have installed radiant heat”.
The choices available today make radiant heat more cost effective than ever. You can choose the traditional fluid-filled tubes, or electric heat tape style. They both offer the amazing comfort of stepping out of the shower, or tub, onto a warm floor. In the dead of winter it feels absolutely amazing.
Electric heat tape styles also make it fairly simple to heat the shower floor. No more cold feet when you step into the shower. Other choices exist and are coming onto the market, but the best flooring choice for radiant heat in a bathroom is still, and probably always will be, tile.
So, if you are considering a bathroom remodel, or a new house, don’t skip the radiant heat floor. You will regret it when winter arrives! And your pets will thank you!
