Heating a tile floor

I am considering putting some type of heating system under my master bath tile. Never done this before. Anyone have any dos and don'ts or warnings to heed about this as I ponder whether it's worth the trouble/price?

Every client that has requested this has changed their minds once the price of this perk was presented. If money is not an option then you will probably enjoy it. To me, a couple of bath mats/rugs on the floor are fine to insulated my feet against cold tile.

Electric mats are expensive to run and water is formidable if you don't have it somewhere else in the house as well. They are also not instant heat, the heat needs time to disperse through all of the mass and generally give the best results when left heated/on all the time.

I have no problem believing czizzi's comment that each request to install this has been retracted once all the details were revealed.
