Tile flooring is an excellent product to
install over your radiant heating system, but it's generally a fantastic floor
covering overall. Not only does it provide a superb lifespan that can give you
more than 50 years of service, but it offers a beautiful array of colors,
formats, and installation options that help create the look and feel you want
for any room. It's a perfect décor match for all décor schemes, so take some time
to consider your options.
When you install porcelain or ceramic tiles
over radiant heating, you'll find the heat distribution to be outstanding. Even
in usually drafty and cold areas, you'll find this underfoot comfort to be a
welcomed addition. It’s particularly beneficial in children’s rooms, especially
on little feet and knees, to provide a safer, more comfortable atmosphere.
While warmth is one thing, you might find
the addition of a few aptly placed area rugs to be a great advantage in
addition to radiant heating. The softness of the area rug pairs wonderfully
with the warmth, giving you unrivaled comfort, especially in bedrooms and
living areas. They also add an extra layer to your décor, so you get multiple
benefits from a single product.
The installation process for tile is longer
than for floorings like laminate or luxury vinyl flooring. That's because these
materials require exact measurements and cutting to get the perfect look and
feel. They also need time to dry the adhesive and grouting, so you never have
to worry about tiles shifting while you walk on them. If you have questions
