Question about radiant heat mat install

I am going to be putting heat mats in an L shape in our bathroom.. I've narrowed down to either SunTouch or Nuheat- leaning toward SunTouch because I can find it locally.

The shape of the "L" I need to cover is 3x8 (long part of L) and 2x2 (short part), so 8' max dimension (see pic)

EDIT: to clarify- this is the area of actual heat pad I want which keeps all edges 4-6" from walls/toilet and not going under vanity...

It seems like I should get a 3'x9' or 3'x10' mat and strip the wire off the mesh past 8' and lay it manually to cover the 2'x2' part. Is that generally the way to go (I saw this suggestion in a SunTouch install video so not sure if it's product specific).

Any recommendations on the best/easiest method and/or product to go with to fit this relatively basic shape?

Thanks!

The SunTouch is a good product. Not sure if it comes 3x9. 3x10 would be ok.
This is a fairly easy DIY installation. You can also order a custom mat already cut to size for your application from them.
