My husband sees a bathroom as nothing more than that: a bathroom. That’s why he was reluctant when I decided I wanted to turn our bathroom into something more: a therapeutic place of refuge for myself. I wanted that to include a fancier and more expansive walk-in shower. I also wanted a jacuzzi tub and a general bathroom redesign into something more natural and zen looking. However, most of all, I wanted to try radiant heated flooring. The temperatures around here way up North can generally be described as either cold or freezing almost entirely through out the year. Our heating system is adequate, I suppose, but it is still a forced-air heating system with all of the drawbacks that entails. The warmth tends to hang around the ceiling and rooms are not as efficiently warmed as they could be with something like radiant heated floors. We both decided that we were not yet ready to rip up the floorboards throughout the entire home to install radiant heated floors. However, seeing as how I was already dead set on renovating our master bathroom, my husband conceded to trying out radiant heated flooring there first. When the radiant heated floors were finally set up, I found them to be simply delightful. It was late Autumn and already plenty cold outside. Once my husband experienced them for himself, he could not hide the fact that he was quite pleased. Now we both enjoy our bathroom a whole lot more than we used to. It is the warmest and coolest part of our house now!
