When my husband and I bought our home we decided the carpets had to go.
The rugs were a hideous brown, all stretched out and dirty.
I just hated them. I decided I wanted all tile floors so I could easily sweep or mop them. I found myself a nice gray porcelain tile that looks very classy. While we were doing the flooring installation I asked my husband about heated flooring. We were ripping the flooring up anyway. That was the only time this heating system could be installed. Tile flooring might feel colder than carpet too. My husband’s point was we already owned a heating system. We live down south. How cold could it get? He also didn’t want to add more time to the project and money. In the end we agreed on no heated flooring. Now that I have lived in my house for a year, I regret not doing the heated flooring. I would have loved to have warm tile in the wintertime. Now the tile feels icy cold and 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 give the flooring a warmer, softer feel. I had to cover up all that brand new tile! I am not pleased with this choice at all. Someday I am going to rip up the tile and do heated flooring. My current heating system is going to die any day now too. It would have been perfect if we owned another heating device to take its place.
