If you are installing beautifuls in your bathroom or kitchen , you may want to think about how it will actually feel beneath your feet. If you prefer your feet to be nice and toasty, consider adding a heated floor system. The 2 most common floor heating systems use toe kick heaters or in-the-floor heating.


Price Points


Both systems price out about the same. The toe kick heaters cost about $50 each. The heated floor systems consist of several heating mats, a thermostat and built-in wire leads. It too, cost about $100 for a starter kit. The heated floor system can cost more, depending on the square tile footage it actually covers.


Draw out a plan of your floorspace onto graph paper, noting where each fixture is already placed. Figure out how many toe kick heaters or heating mats you will need. Decide how and where you will place the thermostat.


Toe-Kick Heaters


This type of floor heating system usually involves a lot less work because it is not installed underneath the marble floor tiles. So, this kind of system can be installed anytime after your marble tile is already in place. Toe-kick heaters are good for small shower rooms that have a vanity. The actual unit is installed in the very base of your existing vanity sink cabinet.


The hardest part of this type of floor heating system is the electrical work that may be required. These heaters are usually 120 volt, so that you may tap into an existing circuit.


You will need to tap into an existing GFCI plug that is located somewhere in your bathroom. If you are not sure how to do that, then you may want to hire an electrician.
