Is it possible to recreate the sensation of below-floor heating in an apartment bathroom?

One of my least favorite mundane things (right after not being able to sneeze) is getting out of the shower to step onto a cold floor or bathmat. I have family friends who have a swanky house with a guest bathroom that has lovely scrumptious heating beneath the tiles, and it's heavenly. Sometimes when visiting I will just lie on the floor and do stretches! I live in a rented apartment with linoleum tile in the bathroom and very good ventilation (this is good! I live in a mold-prone zone) so it doesn't even get particularly steamy or retain heat, and this is not going to change any time soon. Is there such a thing as heated bathmats, maybe? (That seems dangerous with water, anyway.) Ideally I could just buy a thing and blammo, warm feet, but I am open to suggestions. It would need to be cleanable and portable. Does anything like this exist?
