While you immediately feel the hot air blowing from a conventional forced-air heating system, an underfloor heating system takes a bit longer to warm up. (Once running, of course, the underfloor heat is more consistent and effective.)

Compared to bathrooms where the humidity is high, hallways don’t really present damaging conditions and are a suitable environment for marble.

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.

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.

You can have a practical design that also looks exquisite by combining wood with marble tiles in a manner that gives them both an artistic look.

When guests are at your home, it’s much more pleasant to be with them and be involved in the conversation than it is to be shut away in a tiny steamy kitchen by yourself. The open floor plan excels in providing prime entertaining capacity – you can accomplish everything you need to, with regard to the food and preparations and serving, while still being part of the group (which may or may not be lounging on the nearby sofa while you slave away).

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.)

One way to achieve an opened up look in any room in the house (even the kitchen!) is to make larger pieces of furniture or even the architecture itself incorporate legginess. This allows our eyes to travel above, around, and under even the largest of elements, thus maximizing the sense of openness.
