How to Choose Your Kitchen Underfloor Heating

Of all the rooms in your home, the design of your kitchen is perhaps the most crucial to get right. In addition to choosing fixtures and fittings that reflect your taste and suit how you will use the room, it is also important to install an efficient heating system to create a warm and cosy space.

Underfloor heating in your kitchen offers you complete design freedom without the restrictions of radiators. It offers the comfort of warm floors underfoot and is an ideal, efficient heating system for areas where wall space is at a premium. If your kitchen opens out onto outside area, perhaps through bifold doors, even designer radiators can prove difficult to accommodate and may struggle to keep the room warm.

Whether you are extending, renovating or building from scratch, underfloor heating works best when the interior design is reflected in the underfloor heating design.

How to Choose Your Kitchen Underfloor Heating

Top tips to get the most from underfloor heating in your kitchen:

Consider your kitchen units when designing underfloor heating.

Good underfloor heating design will take into account the position of your fixed and portable kitchen units.

Anything that is directly above the heated floor – including your kitchen units – will be warmed by the underfloor heating. This doesn’t cause a problem if you are not storing food in your kitchen units, and good system design will ensure that the temperature of designated food storage areas is not affected.

One option to get around this is to design a tube layout that runs around any fixed units rather than under them. This will ensure that storage areas are not being warmed by the underfloor heating, and the heat is emitted directly into your room.

However, if you have portable units and islands, or are considering changing the layout of your kitchen in the future, it is best to run the underfloor heating across the whole floor. This avoids the risk of creating cold spots where your units used to be. The base of your kitchen units can easily be insulated to ensure that their contents are not warmed.

Choose underfloor heating compatible floor coverings for your kitchen.

Hard floor coverings such as tiles and engineered timber are a stylish and practical choice in kitchen areas, but they can feel cold underfoot if they are not paired with a suitable heating system. Underfloor heating delivers an efficient, even heat across the entire floor.

Underfloor heating is compatible with a wide range of popular kitchen floor coverings, including engineered timber, tiles, vinyl, laminate and polished concrete. A floor temperature sensor can limit the heat output from the floor to protect sensitive floor coverings.

Retrofit Kitchen Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating can be fitted directly on top of an existing kitchen floor to minimise disruption when installing into an existing house. If you are planning to retrofit underfloor heating into your existing kitchen there is no need to remove the existing kitchen floor.

There may be a slight increase in the height of the floor when retrofitting kitchen underfloor heating. Make sure you consider this when measuring for kitchen units and before fitting floor coverings. A range of options are available to minimise this effect.
