Screeding wear and tear!

Hi, I’m currently renovating my house, however I have run out of funds and am unable to complete the kitchen. Currently the space is unusable as there is no flooring in place. I was wondering if I can install underfloor heating and then just screed it. However I’m worried about it wearing out with us walking over it all day. What would you advise?

Place sheets of ply board over the top of the screed. Completely safe to walk on but make sure the screed has fully dried out.

If your screeding over underfloor heating you need to use a fibre screed , but once it cured it would be fine for foot traffic
