Getting heated flooring in my dream kitchen
I am in the midst of redoing my kitchen.
I have taken months to just plan on how I want the kitchen laid out.
I wanted more counter space around my stove. That was my goal. I thought moving the stove to a new wall might be the solution. Then I thought about moving a doorway. Then I thought about switching the stove to just a cooktop and an oven elsewhere. I finally settled on my layout and bought custom wood cabinets. I have quartz countertops coming in as well. I have spared no expense for my dream kitchen. I wanted to have some type of heating in there since it gets cold in the wintertime. For years I relied on a ventless heater that took up floor space. It looked ugly, was invasive and not very good at its job. I ripped it out to get more lower cabinet space. I then ripped up my flooring and had a HVAC company put down heated flooring. I now have the heating system underneath my feet. It creates no noise and doesn’t rise to the ceiling since it isn’t air. It is electric based heat which means no polluted indoor air quality or cold spots. The heated flooring system is energy smart, safe and quite cheap to have in a kitchen. Right now I just have finished floors, walls and lights. I have no cabinets or countertops but I know my kitchen is going to be great. Sometimes I just stand in there to enjoy the heat and visualize what it will turn out to be.
