When you think about renovating your bathroom, what do you consider including in the renovation? The toilet? The bathroom sink? The shower or bath?
These are all of the most common parts of the bathroom numerous homeowners wish to upgrade whenever bathroom remodeling comes into mind. But actually, if you are thinking about renovating your bathroom soon, you might want to include the windows and flooring of your bathroom in the revamp.
And, you can make the most out of your bathroom floor renovation by turning it into heated floors.
Heated bathroom floors can be advantageous for you:
- These floors that radiate heat can provide immediate comfort whenever you walk on it.
- During the cold, wintry months, you can go to the bathroom without any discomfort.
- The level of heat can be easily adjusted so you can still save energy if you only turn in up whenever you need it.
- Having heated bathroom floors can instantly make your home more appealing to potential buyers, and can increase home value.
But, just like most things, there are still some downsides to installing heated bathroom floors, like:
- Heated bathroom floors are expensive to install.
- The floor heaters aren’t suitable to be used with all types of flooring material. For instance, vinyl, wood, carpets, and other wood-based floors will not work well with floor heaters. But, flooring materials such as wood and carpets don’t really go well with bathrooms in the first place because they are not ideal for a wet or moist environment. So, if you really think about it, flooring material wouldn’t really be much of a problem.
At the end of the day, you will be the judge whether or not the benefits of having a heated bathroom floor outweigh its disadvantages. But if you ever choose to have a floor heater installed in your bathroom, or if you are just installing new windows, its always best to call in professionals and don’t try to install it yourself for safety purposes.
