There are two options when it comes to heating systems for bathroom tiling. Electric radiant heating systems are the most common choice. Electric radiant heating systems are typically more expensive than the other option of hydronic heating. The installation process is complicated, which results in higher labor costs. Still, many homeowners prefer this type over hydronic heating.
Plastic laminate tiles (more commonly available as planks) are also a good choice, especially if you’re remodeling. Similar to the laminate material that covered kitchen countertops for a generation or two, the tiles don’t significantly raise the height of the existing floor, which makes it easier to plan transitions from room to room. While durable and easy to keep clean, laminate falls short when it comes to moisture. Standing water can infiltrate the fiberboard core, causing the material to expand and buckle. With laminates, it’s critical to caulk gaps along the walls, around the tub, and surrounding other fixtures to prevent water infiltration.
