Carpet and Underfloor Heating

November 17, 2013

Our house has wall to wall carpeting - even in the kitchen. And while I'd like to find the original hardwood underneath it all on the main floor, having carpet in the bedrooms upstairs is actually pretty nice. Even though we're not even into winter yet, it's nice stepping out of bed onto something cozy instead of cold hardwood floors.

But (there's always a but), the carpet that's upstairs right now isn't quite what I'm interested in long-term. It's a little stiff, definitely not something you can sink your toes into. I'd love soft, plushy carpet in a neutral colour.

To make things extra luxurious, I'd love to add underfloor heating. Which, by the way, I completely thought was only possible under tiles. Turns out you can use it under basically any flooring type. With our cold Ontario winters, I think it's a great idea...although admittedly a little extravagant for an entire second floor. Perhaps just the master bedroom, then?

We aren't doing anything substantial to this house for a looooong time (we're a bit reno'd out right now), but it's something to consider for the future.
