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.
Hydronic heating systems are also installed underneath the tile flooring, but instead of electric coils, there are actual tubes that run underneath the flooring. This type of system is ideal for homeowners with boiler systems already in the home as the boiler system is essential for conducting and heating the water in the tubes.
