Brick Slips

Electric Underfloor Heating Mats are the perfect way to add cost-effective underfloor heating to your kitchen or bathroom. Underfloor heating may sound like an absolute luxury to some, but in reality, the use of heating mats under quality floor tiles might not be as expensive as you think. Moreover, electric underfloor heating mats are straightforward to install and provide easy temperature management through the use of a thermostat.

Our electric underfloor heating mats are suitable for any size or shape of room or floor. The malleable mats sit close to the surface and allow plenty of space for our tiles to be placed on top. In easy terms, the electric mats simply line the ground and are wired into the mains, then, tiles are placed on top to provide a complete and cost-effective underfloor heating system, far cheaper than more traditional water based underfloor heating methods.


The heating mats are then controlled by a digital thermostat which can be placed in an accessible part of your home. Our electric underfloor heating mats are easy to fit, easy to use and could save you some money too!

Fitting is super cheap

What makes our electric underfloor heating mats so cost effective is that you can fit these yourself, you just need to hire a qualified electrician to connect the mats up to the mains, otherwise these mats can become a fun part of your DIY floor project, perfect for bathrooms, kitchens and any room of the house.
