Did you know that, although it sounds terribly modern and technical, underfloor heating actually dates back hundreds, by some counts thousands, of years? The Romans, for example, warmed rooms in their homes by running the flues for their “basement” fires, tended religiously by slaves, under elevated floors of marble.

For those instances where a widely open floor plan just doesn’t make sense or look well, it’s certainly not a bad idea to incorporate some sort of design elements that will resemble walls for you. Just be sure that they lean more toward Swiss cheese (plenty of visual “holes” and gaps) than toward a thick slice of cheddar. Leaving the top third of the vertical plane empty also helps to maintain a feeling of openness while still defining the smaller spaces.

An alternative to trying to omit substantial visual barriers is to turn this around and use those barriers to your advantage. For the bed that happens to be part of the open floor plan, for example, a raised headboard provides an immediate sense of privacy…even if that privacy isn’t exactly reality.

On the other hand, marble floors with soft and delicate veins and patterns can also look highly sophisticated and elegant, even more so if the rest of the décor is just as stylish and simplistic. High-end marble is usually defined by a soft and even color palette and less pronounced veins.

Let’s face it – no one wants to have to work around the architectural constraints of conventional forced-air heating systems, whether they be boiler baseboards, radiators, or even heating vents. One of the best parts about underfloor heating is that it’s truly invisible – no evidence that it’s there, except for the nice, even blanket of warmth exuding from the floor when you need it.

Because homeowners don’t need to worry about stereotypically cold flooring surfaces (think tile, slate, or concrete) with and underfloor heating system, they can choose those materials with very low VOC emissions. Additionally, underfloor heating helps with moisture control and inhibits mold and bacteria growth. Studies have shown underfloor heating to be a benefit to combatting many common household allergens.

Imagine waking up, climbing out of bed, and stepping not onto ice blocks that are your morning floorboards but instead onto a comfortably warm floor. Sounds nice, doesn’t it, especially at the approach of cooler fall, and then downright icy winter, weather. The way to achieve this toasty method of home heating is through underfloor heating. If it sounds complicated and intimidating, read on – you might be surprised to learn that it’s not that far out of reach for even the most traditional minds.

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).

Before we jump in to talking about the pros and cons of open floor plans, it might be a good idea to talk about what this means, or in other words to define open. Open, in this instance, describes the layout of a larger space that functions as multiple rooms or functionalities within that single (larger) living space. The most common form of open floor plan in today’s homes includes a combination of kitchen, dining room, and living room all open to each other within a single “great room”.
