    Hi I am having a new addition put on with a bathroom with a roll-in shower and a small bedroom. I am wondering what kind of flooring to put in. Is radiant heat a good idea? Is tile floor in the bathroom and laminate in the bedroom a good idea? Thanks

    I think tile in the bathroom is the best choice, but I would skip the heated floor. That's a nice feature when you're able to stand on it, and it does add significant cost to the project. Anything but carpet is best for the bedroom.

    I completely agree. We had our floor tiled and then used a fiberglass wheeled shower. It woked well just had to make sure that the shower was on the same level as the floor.

    Used a hydronic radiant floor using poly tubing embedded in 1 in cement mud cuz I live in NY, best decision I ever made.
    Designed bathroom to be 6 x 15 ft: Great for double washer/dryer, small sink top, and commode.
    The showering area using 3 x 3 in tile, graded to a center floor drain with 12 x 12 in tile outside the shower also slightly graded to drain. Sandwiched between the two mud beds is Laticrete waterproofing product membrane.
    Rock solid , quick dry floor was the result. Warm always, no rusting radiators, with no lip between shower and floor surfaces.

    Radiant heat is a great and cost effective way to warm your bathroom...most of us have bad circulation and we get cold easy so a nice way to stay warm on cold winter days and or nights.

    Do a google search on images and you can get some great ideas.

    We designed ours after a year of traveling to different hotels and took bits and pieces of each one.
