adding radiant floor loop to existing zone?

i have a bathroom i'm redoing. it currently has a baseboard heater on the same zone with my entire downstairs.
i would like to chop out the baseboard and install radiant floor heating.

this probably needs to be on its own zone with some kind of regulator that tempers in cold water?

my house has 3 zones, one per floor, with each zone having its own zone valve. old boiler with one circulator pump running the whole show. one main Ys off into the 3 zones, and each zone has monoflow Ts to each radiator, or several radiators.

how should i proceed?

Ayuh,... That's correct,...

Radiant heating uses in the 140/ 150 range, after it's mixed with returning water...

The piping lay-out would determine where, 'n how you could branch off, 'n mix it...
