Question on bathroom flooring

Hello everyone

I am in the process of redoing my bathroom next to my main bedroom. The floor space is very minimal. The whole bathroom is only 6 feet by 8 feet. and most of the floor is taken up by shower, vanity, and stool. I was wondering what kind of flooring except tile could I put down that I could put a heating element under to warm the floor?

I think you've found the flooring. Use nothing that is glued down, like vinyl, as the heat will probably be too much for the glue. (that, of course, depends on how warm you want the floor, and how much insulation is under it, etc). Just ensure that the subfloor is skookum enough for tile.
