I have decided that I am getting rid of all our carpet & replacing it with tile.
I am tired of cleaning our rugs & hating the colors of them, however tile is genuinely the best solution for everything, then you can drop or spill on them with no immense deal.
The cement looks way cleaner & can clean up nicer. I am also thinking about heated flooring, however with rugs the heat gets trapped underneath. Tile absorbs the radiant heat the best. It is said a homeowner can lower the temperature control temperature because of how effective the cement is; Also, the heat stays at the lowest level of the lake house rather than rises! So there is no wasted air. Another benefit is radiant heat is absorbed into objects adore the couch, loveseat & recliners. With tile, this is an self-explanatory task to have. I already have the tile, grout & cement cutter obtained. All I need to do is rip up the carpet & old flooring. I then need to purchase the heated flooring device. You can get an Heating, Ventilation & A/C company to do the heating installation. I feel I am doing it on our own though. I am not doing hydronic heating with a boiler system. I am just going to put down electric heated mats underneath the tile. It should be simple. I will take our time & do it right. I also save a bunch of money on the installation costs & I already have most of the materials that I need. I just will need to set up the furnace in every room of the house.
