Installing Heated Floors in Your Bathroom


There is nothing worse than a cold tile floor under your feet, especially in the winter. Many homeowners today are fighting back by installing radiant heating under the floors of their bathrooms. Have you considered this option for your home? Here are a few things to consider if you want a heated floor:

Choose your product

There are several types of radiant floor heaters available, so be sure to talk to your local hardware store or a supplier to learn more. Most are simple metal grids that will be placed below the flooring you choose.

Electrical help

You may be able to hook up your radiant floor heater yourself, but it is always best to consult an expert when doing work with electricity. Your electrician can get everything installed safely and make the heater easy to turn on and off.

Cement board subfloor

When you're ready to start, you'll need to lay a cement board subfloor. This is the protection layer that will allow your heater to work efficiently and operate safely. Cement board is available at any big box home improvement store.


After you lay the cement board subfloor, you'll install the heating elements. They'll cover the area of your floor. Most heaters cannot be placed against the wall, but the minimum distance between the walls and heating elements will depend on the product you're using. Be sure to read all materials carefully.


Once the heating element is laid, you can install your tiles using regular mortar and grout. Take care not to damage the heater with the flooring tools. Once the tile is in, you can have a heated floor with the flip of a switch.
