Underfloor heating does just that. Because it’s not trying (and failing) to heat the entire airspace of a room like a conventional heating system, cycling through a hot-air/no-air/hot-air cycle to maintain a tiny temperature range, underfloor heating is a much more efficient way to heat the house…and a great way to decrease energy bills.

This form of underfloor heating involves circulating water from a boiler through flexible tubing that has been installed in the floor (e.g., on top of the subfloor in grooved panels, clipped to the underside of the floor, or embedded into poured concrete).

Underfloor heating (and cooling, although this article focuses on the heating aspects solely) is, in a nutshell, a form of central heating that achieves indoor climate (temperature) control using conduction, radiation, and convection. Underfloor heating is also commonly known as radiant heating, simply because radiation is responsible for much of the heat felt. (Although this is technically not always the case.)

You can also highlight the beauty of your marble bathroom floor by opting for furniture in a contrasting color and material such as this rich wood tone used here. It can be complemented by a marble counter that matches the floor for cohesion.

In a modern radiant heating system, heat is supplied by electric wires or hot water tubes that are buried under the floor. As the thermal radiation rises up and out of the floor, they warm up everything they touch, which items then radiate heat as well. While the air temperature in an underfloor heating system tends to remain pretty constant, you will feel and stay comfortably warm because the surfaces you touch are warm, which means they won’t steal warmth from you.

The reasons why we, in general, love marble so much, are numerous and include details such as the fact that marble is very easy to work with and can be milled, machined and tumbled which allows it to have multiple uses. Marble floors are quite common although less popular than marble counters or table tops. Of course, marble floors don’t suit every type of space.

Without a bunch of interior walls blocking the natural light from the windows, the natural light in an open floor plan’s great room far exceeds that of a closed floor plan. Not only the light, but the views through the windows themselves are increased and enhanced. This permeation of light plays an important role in maintaining a spacious, airy feel, regardless of the actual size of the open floor layout.

If you want to get that stylish look associated with marble without the disadvantages of the material or the high price, you can opt for porcelain tiles as an alternative. This might actually turn out to be the best solution for the entryway which is a high traffic area.
