Once in place, hot water radiant heating tubing can be covered up with most types of flooring, although carpet isn’t ideal due to its insulative qualities, which end up counteracting the whole heating idea. Although the upfront installation costs are more, hot water radiant heating is the most popular and cost-effective way to heat a whole house – this system can be up to 30% more efficient than forced-air heating.

Where other traditional house-heating methods can leave patches of draftiness or downright chilliness (think hallways, or corners of large rooms), underfloor heating is evenly dispersed and consistent. Kind of like an electric blanket, just under the floor.

When the barriers between people are physically removed, it’s much easier, more convenient, and more common for interactions to increase. Facilitate this opportunity by providing comfortable, unique, and/or interesting seating arrangements or furniture items…such as a hanging swing-chair.

As mentioned before, marble is a material that stains and etches very easily and this makes it a poor choice for spaces such as the kids’ bathroom or the kitchen. The living room is a problematic case as well. In here, a marble floor can be easily damaged by a lot of things so make sure you take everything into consideration before making a final decision.

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.
