Never Get Cold Feet In Your Bathroom Again
Convenience always comes at a cost. For some people, a nice-to-have feature is a necessity for others, depending on how much they’re willing to spend. One of these convenience features for bathrooms is having a nice, warm floor to walk in the morning when it’s time to get ready to face the day, and this is something Crofton remodeling contractor services can help with.
That Cold Tile Feeling
Bathrooms are, by necessity, covered with tile flooring. This is because between the toilet, the
faucet, and the bathtub and/or shower, a lot of water is splashed around in these rooms. Tile is the ideal surface for damp areas, providing both traction to prevent slipping and water resistance to avoid moisture erosion and damage.
However, tile, being a more rigid surface, is also prone to losing heat rapidly. This means that tile can be cool to the touch first thing in the morning and uncomfortable for bare feet.
One solution to this is known as an electric radiant system. This is a series of wires that are run under a bathroom floor that emit heat. The tile floor absorbs this heat, and when you step on the floor in the morning, you’re greeted with a warm, pleasant sensation rather than shocking cool.
Radiant systems can be installed under floor tile and can be controlled. So, for example, if you’re out for most of the day, the floor can be scheduled to warm up just before you wake up, then shut down when you’ve left home, and warm up again upon your return.
