Face it; we’ve all been there. The early morning alarm buzzes, you pad into the bathroom to take a shower and eek! you’re greeted with cold floors. What? I’m not the only one?

I suppose there’s more to radiant floor heating than the luxurious benefit of having warm-to-the-touch tile (like energy savings due to convection and increased return on investment) but to be honest, Husband and I installed it for the sheer purpose of pampering our tootsies. A small price to pay and a simple installation process that will skyrocket the average bathroom into serious spa-like territory; the other stuff is just a nice bonus.

We chose Laticrete’s radiant floor heat kit after hearing reviews of an affordable and simple installation. And honestly? The process was simple indeed (with the exception of leveling the tile, but that’s a post for another week!), thanks to this handy radiant heating floor installation tutorial. The entire installation took half-a-day and we can’t wait to test the results on our chilly toes.

Of course, we’ll be watching our electric bill to see if the new floor really does save us money (the programmable thermostat should help). When we move in, I’ll let you know how we fared! We’ll also be posting pictures of the finished bathroom down the road, so you can judge us on how well we leveled those tiles!

Until then, if you’re in the market for radiant floor heating, I’ve rounded up some great resources that will help you decide whether it’s right for you.

  2. Needed to post you a tiny observation to be able to thank you very much the moment again with the nice secrets you have contributed here. It was seriously open-handed of you to convey unreservedly what most people might have distributed for an e-book to help make some bucks for their own end, precisely since you might well have tried it if you ever desired. These good ideas as well worked to become a great way to be aware that some people have a similar zeal really like my very own to realize a great deal more when considering this condition. Certainly there are many more pleasurable times up front for individuals who go through your site.
