When you need to get away from it all - particularly in the frigid wintertime - the bathroom might be the first place you go to escape the cold and relax. For this reason, it is becoming increasingly common for people to give their bathrooms a makeover to ensure a more luxurious experience. In fact, there are certain updates that can essentially turn your bathroom into a full-fledged spa. That means you don't even have to leave your own home for some much-needed pampering.After a warm bath, though, the last thing you want to step on is freezing cold tile. That's why radiant heating is an ideal way to upgrade your bathroom. Whether you're remodeling the entire room or just looking for one simple way to make a big difference, a floor heating system is an excellent option that will maximize your comfort. Imagine setting foot on warm floors right out of the shower? Radiant heated floors keep your feet - and your entire body - toasty year-round. Not only that, but these systems are also cost-effective and energy-efficient. So you can feel good about indulging in a spa day inside your own bathroom.Unlike conventional forced air heaters, which simply blow hot air around the room, a radiant system emits heat from the floor. That means from floor to ceiling, your entire bathroom will consistently remain the perfect temperature. It doesn't matter what kind of tile or other material you have in your bathroom - radiant heating can be work with any flooring. The first step is to talk with a radiant heating professional to determine which type of floor heating is best suited to your home in terms of installation and flooring. The size of your bathroom and other aspects will factor into designing the best heating system for you.
