Starting to plan an install for a client's perfect bathroom or how about dreaming up your own home bathroom renovation? One thing is almost always bound to come up in conversation: Heated Bathroom Floors and are they worth it?
While there is no doubt that a heated bathroom floor was previously a luxury and not a necessity, the cost for heated bathroom flooring has become significantly more affordable in the last few years.
When investing in transforming your bathroom into a spa-like experience, this is one upgrade that can make a world of a difference... especially on a cold winter morning.
So, how do heated bathroom floors work?
Heated bathroom floors are created by a source of radiant heat installed below your tiles. This can be created by using either electric or hydronic heating. Our preference? The Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT electric floor cables. These cables integrate customizable, comfortable electric floor warming with the functions associated with DITRA: uncoupling, waterproofing, vapor management, and support to ensure a long-lasting installation - which are all must-haves for our tile installs.
So how do you control your heated floors? To adjust your settings, heated bathroom floors come with adjustable thermostats allowing you to set the temperature to your liking, oftentimes from your mobile device.
The Best Part? Easy Install.
If you're looking to install heated tile floors yourself, the Schluter electric floor cables paired with the Perfect Level Master system are your sure-fire way to get it done perfect.
The new Perfect Level Master Grout Float was designed with this project in mind, it is the perfect tool for skimming heated cables for next day installs.
