I have to say that my two favorite rooms in my entire house are the kitchen and the bathroom. I absolutely love to cook, and I am the undisputed chef in our family. My husband has often told me that he feels so spoiled because of my cooking skills, and our relatives and friends know that our household is the one to visit for Thanksgiving, and I am only too happy to oblige them with a great feast. It’s what I do! As for the bathroom, well, we’ve managed to convert it into a sort of retreat. The way that we did that is the same reason that I have come to love the kitchen even more than I did before. We installed radiant heated flooring under the tiles of our kitchen and bathroom. We have carpets throughout the rest of the house and really don’t have that much of a problem when it comes to cold feet, but the stone tile floors in our kitchen and bathrooms can be quite chilly. We decided to install radiant heated flooring while we were on vacation for a couple weeks down south during the winter. Now the kitchen and the master bathroom are the coziest rooms in the entire house. The kitchen is so delightfully warm even on the coldest winter day as I cook, because the ground below my bare feet is so toasty and warm. Similarly, in the bathroom, the combination of a hot shower and warm stone tile floors when I step out of it makes me want to stay in there forever!
