    I'm sure it could be done might be expensive if it is a real large area but you could have a underfloor heating system installed. The underfloor heating system is placed under your flooring and is capable of heating the entire area that it is installed in. When you have this heating system installed, it is highly suggested that you use insulation to keep the radiant heat from going into the subfloor and wasting energy. There are two main kinds of underfloor heating systems that homeowners can use. These are wet and dry systems.
    Basically a wet system utilizes small pipes that pump heated water through them. The pipes are laid out in a grid system for the room they are installed in and the heat is radiated upwards into the room through the flooring. These pipes are completely sealed, and there is very little chance of them ever leaking. The dry system uses electricity. I have radiant heat in my bathroom floors.
    These systems are different from a wet system by the fact that there is a mat that is placed under the flooring instead of a grid of pipes. These mats have wires that run through them and are attached to the home’s electric system. The mats are easily cut to make a perfect fit for the room they are being installed in, and they never get too hot to start a fire.
    While there are plenty of options for heating your home, these underfloor heating systems have become some of the most popular aspects of heating the world has ever seen. Many high profile commercial businesses are starting to have these systems installed and more than one personal home being built today is having them installed as well. Popularity is definitely fueling the progress of these types of heating systems for now. In this case you would have to pour a few coats of thin set to cover the thickness on these coils or wires.

    the epoxy floor can have a underfloor heating system, as long as you have a really good air vapour barrier and/or primer on your topping... the best substrate is actually concrete......as for the installation cost you might be looking between $3-$8 sqft (GTA area) depending on the existing surface, surface preparation and sqft area needed, as for cleaning plain old "water&soap" is the best, durability you are looking at least 8-10 years as epoxy is well known for years for its "durable wear and tear" this is why you see terrazo, epoxy flooring on high volume traffic areas.

    Epoxy flooring is really slippery when wet. However we have used it plenty in bathrooms and showers either in its' antiskid form, or by using shower / floor mats that you regularly use in showers, regardless the type of floor. It Is definitely not toxic, hence it is widely used in hospitals and professional kitchens. It can certainly be applied over raw concrete floor, after checking its' current situation and porosity though, At least 3 coats would grant you a sealed floor. The ease of recoating epoxy floor is one of its biggest benefits and pros.
    Hope this helps.

        Embrace glossy floors. We rarely consider treating our floors to lighten a room, though high-gloss floors are brilliant at bouncing light around. It may be as straightforward as sanding back your floorboards and polishing them with a glossy finish, or you may prefer to employ a more drastic treatment and use high-sheen white floor paint or epoxy, as used in this industrial Montreal penthouse.

        4. Experiment with rugs — and no rugs. Changing your floors, whether you lay new tile, install carpeting or have your wood floors painted or refinished, makes everything else look different. You may find that your old rugs no longer work with the fresh flooring — try rolling them up and go bare for a change. Bare floors can be beautiful, as in the slick loft featured here. If it's the flooring you would prefer to cover, experiment with layered rugs until you reach a look you love.See more of this Montreal penthouse

        Charbonneau kept the structure as true to its original state as possible, including the concrete columns and brick walls. After an unsuccessful attempt to salvage the original wooden floors, she replaced them with a budget-friendly white epoxy. Charbonneau designed this dining table. Its 7-foot diameter comfortably fits up to 10 chairs. The organic lines of the Bocci light fixture complement the room's industrial edge.Light fixture: Triede Design; dining chairs: Avant-Scène
