Treat yourself to a spa-like experience within the comfort of your home by installing bathroom floor heating. Discover the benefits of warm bathroom flooring while avoiding the shock of cold tile in the morning.
When it comes to finding a relaxing oasis in your home, the bathroom should be a place where you can shut out the chaos of the day with a warm bath or steam shower. For an active home and a demanding life, your bathroom should be more than just another utility room—it should be a retreat. Bathroom floor heating from WarmlyYours will provide the luxurious escape you’re looking for.
Our electric underfloor heating systems are available for a variety of floor surfaces, including tile, stone, and marble. And while any room in the home can utilize our heating systems, there's just something incredibly energizing about starting your day off with warm bathroom flooring.
The answer to this question depends on a number of variables (such as the floor covering type and the shape of your room) but we can give you a general overview of how to install a heated bathroom floor.
The most common floor covering material for bathroom floor heating is tile, however waterproof vinyl materials are growing in popularity as are natural stone and marble floors. Tile is so popular in bathrooms because of the natural water resistance of the material and its ability to easily transfer heat from the heating system to the room. One very popular radiant floor heating system for warm bathroom flooring under tile is the combination of our TempZone Floor Heating Cable and the Prodeso Uncoupling Membrane. This combination helps protect your floor from cracking or popping tiles while greatly reducing installation times.
The cost for heated bathroom floors can vary depending on the heating system being installed and the size of the project. The price can range from $5-$12 per square foot for electric heated mats, rolls or cables with fixing strips to to $15-$20 per square foot for heating cables with an uncoupling membrane instead of fixing strips. However, the larger the project, typically the cheaper the price is per square foot for warm bathroom flooring.
For a 50 square foot bathroom (about average), with about 35 square feet that can be heated (you shouldn't install heating right up against the wall or under permanent fixtures like vanities, showers, tubs or toilets), the price for bathroom floor heating would be between $175 and $420. However, it does increase to between $525 and $700 if you use an uncoupling membrane.

Bathrooms designed with shower and floor heating will include only one thermostat by default. But it is possible to design with a thermostat for each zone if desired. Installing a separate thermostat for the shower area can help reduce cost and energy usage. This also allows you to heat the bathroom floor alone for everyday use and only heat the shower area when needed.
