    I'm having a full house refurb and extensions built and had always been keen to have underfloor heating and no radiators. We don't have any plans for a fire or burner either.

    Does anyone have any experience living solely with UFH?
    Would you recommend it or should I maybe go with UFH for the large kitchen diner and rads in the bedrooms?
    I estimate the house to end up approximately 220m2. How many thousands do think I should put aside for something of this scale.

    Don't put underfloor in bedrooms, no point.

    Underfloor downstairs, rads upstairs.

    Thanks guys. I think I've decided to drop the whole house idea.
    I'll probably go for upstairs in 2 bathrooms, and downstairs everywhere except living room as I'd rather have a nice thick pile carpet.

    Underfloor heating is perfect for a full house
    As long as the calcs work out
    House needs to be thermal efficient
    And a liquid screed is a very good option

    Depends how big the room is but most of the underfloor would be covered by bed/ furniture

    UFH throughout - it is suitable floor all floor types / coverings. Much reduced running cost, no rads on walls (other than bathroom towel rails) - no issue with it in bedrooms. Far more comfortable & far easier to control.
