A Pleasant Inviting Way to Start Your Day
Tile is a quality product and as such represents a welcomed upgrade over any linoleum floor. The only disadvantage that tile has over linoleum is the cold impersonal feel of stone. Nobody likes to tip toe on a cold floor in the morning.
On the other hand walking onto a warm bath floor first thing in the morning is a pleasant and calming way to start your day. The warmth underfoot really makes a difference and adds a distinctive charm and sense of luxury to your bathroom sanctuary.
One way to ensure you are not jarred into reality in the morning is by installing a WarmlyYours electric floor warming system.
The process itself is not complicated and can be installed under your tile floors by yourself or a local contractor. This marvelous piece of technology is made up of a thin membrane of fiberglass mesh and inside is a grid like, warming unit that is sewn right into the mesh in a serpentine pattern.
Your bathroom tile goes on top and all you need to do is get an electrician to come in and hook up the programmable thermostat.
Warming up Potential Home Buyers
WarmlyYours is one of many manufacturers in the industry that fabricate these products. On average, a system can be installed in a standard sized bathroom for about four to seven hundred dollars.
Their product was even featured in a spot on the Home and Garden Network (HGTV) when Amy Matthews demonstrated how easy it was to install a WarmlyYours radiant floor. And as an added bonus, heated floors can be used as an attractive way to entice a prospective home buyer if you choose to sell your home.
As an after thought, one way of complementing your heated floors is to use warm-colored tiles. The radiant effect of warm-colored floors can be used to offset the ordinarily cool features of your bathroom fixtures.
And don’t forget to paint your walls in off white warm toned colors. Add highlights of brushed gold and warm auburn’s to counteract the sometimes cold plain feel of tile and porcelain fixtures and to enhance the warm comfy feeling of your bathroom enclave.
