Tile as a bathroom floor is easy to maintain, attractive and available in so many options. But it can get awfully cold. Radiant heating uses a hydronic or electric system to warm the floor from underneath. Hydronic systems involve rubber tubing that is installed under the floor and a hot water heater is used to heat up water, which circulates through the tubes and radiates warmth up and through the floor. Electric radiant heating is more economical and simpler to install—plus, it’s ideal for heating a single room if you’re not investing in a whole-house system. A thin electric panel containing heat-resistant wire is installed under the floor. Using a thermostat and timer, you can rev up the floor temperature when you use the space.
Porcelain is one of the pricier tile floor options, but it’s worth the extra investment. Porcelain can be used for multiple decorating purposes (think walls and counters), however, it works best in the flooring department. It’s good in high traffic areas because it’s durable and made to last. In reality, this tile is harder than granite. HomeAdvisor says that the color of porcelain tile is not just on the surface, but runs down through the tile. This means that the color will stay the same as it wears down (which, in itself, will take a long time). Want to know the best part? Porcelain tile is so easy to clean!
