is really the cherry on top for a bathroom remodel." After the floor leveler cured, Matchen installed the eight- inch patterned porcelain tile and completed the shower. A plumber arrived to install fixtures, and Holton completed the vanity, trim and other finishes.
Warm floors in any space, but especially a bathroom, takes the project to a whole different level," Holton says. "About half of our bathroom renovations have warm floors. Five years ago, not nearly as many. People are investing in premium comfort, and not just within super high-end residences. We've also installed floor warming in kitchens and sunrooms." The owner of the log home has been thrilled with the result, from both aesthetic and comfort standpoints. Holton admits installing warm floors and coordinating with a very busy, professional tile setter are just more steps in the process, but steps that are well worth it. After all, bathrooms and kitchen sell homes, or keep occupants happy in them. According to Holton, there are few other steps in the renovation process that, with relative ease and modest expense, add as much "wow" factor, and contribute to lasting comfort as a radiantly-heated floor that's easy to control. The experience of bare feet on a warm tile or stone floor is hard to match when it comes to homeowner satisfaction," Holton adds.
