When our fiance in addition to I bought our beach house the two of us decided the carpets had to go.
The rugs were a hideous brown, all stretched out in addition to dirty. I just hated them. I decided I wanted all cement floors so I could actually sweep or mop them. I found myself a nice gray porcelain cement that looks undoubtedly classy. While the two of us were doing the flooring upgrade I asked our fiance about heated flooring. All of us were ripping the flooring up anyway. That was the only time this heating method could be installed. Tile flooring might think colder than carpet too. My fiance’s point was the two of us already owned a gas furnace. All of us live down south. How cold could it get? He also didn’t want to add more time to the project in addition to money. In the end the two of us agreed on no heated flooring. Now that I have lived in our home for a year, I regret not doing the heated flooring. I would have enjoyed to have hot cement in the wintertime. Now the cement feels icy cold in addition to is unpleasant to walk in. In the Summer it is nice but that is only 65% of the time. I ended up buying quite a few throw rugs to supply the flooring a warmer, softer feel. I had to cover up all that brand current tile! I am not pleased with this choice at all. Someday I am going to rip up the cement in addition to do heated flooring. My current heating method is going to die any day now too. It would have been perfect if the two of us owned another heating unit to take its place.
