Hi, first post so be gentle. Also, sorry if this isn't the right board.

We're having an extension done with a new kitchen/living/dining room that will have underfloor heating. We were all set to have porcelain tiles but a few people have sung the praises of LVT to us.

We went to a friends house today who have had similar work done and found their tiled floor to be a bit cold underfoot (heating wasn't on). Has anyone got experience of both? I've read underfloor heating works best with tiles, is that true and how much of a difference is there? Is LVT a bit warmer underfoot (when heating is off) as I imagine it to be?

All thoughts gratefully received.

Who is installing the underfloor heating?
You are supposed to put insulation underneath it and then the flooring on top. The less the insulation quality on top the better the heat will come through.
You will need to weigh up weather you want tiles which are naturally cold to touch but let heat through better then LET or LET which are more comfortable.
