Heated Floors for Your Kitchen, Bathroom and Sunroom in Maryland, DC and VA

Aaaahhhh… that about sums it up when it comes to heated floors. There are few comforts that come close to walking on a warm, cozy floor and watching the snow fall outside. Every time it snows I walk into my sunroom barefoot on purpose, just to enjoy the view and the awesomeness!

1 – With radiant floor heat, you can turn your thermostat down.

2 – Electric floor heat is easier to install and far less costly than hydronic (hot water) systems.

3 – You don’t need an electrician to do the job if you have basic skills.

4 – There are plug-and-play heat systems for use under carpet and floating floors that anybody can install.

5 – Radiant floor heat is WONDERFUL!!!

If you live in the DC metro area and want to know more, send me an email and I’ll be happy to talk about it. I’ve got heated floors in my 300 square-foot sun room, master bathroom and even in the kitchen in one of my rentals.

All the best,

Chris

Wool Carpet + Big Dog? Absolutely

brutus on the karastan rug

The rug Brutus the Bull Mastiff is standing on is a Karastan woven wool custom piece that retails for well over $23 per square foot. Why am I allowing him on such a pricey piece of textile art?
Because wool is incredibly durable, abrasion-resistant, and beautiful.

Now, it must be understood that this is a cut-pile piece with no loops. Had there been loops in the pattern, Brutus the Magnificent would have made a bit of a mess as he plays. But as it is, he can have all the fun he wants on it (including the occasional accident… he is a puppy after all) and I don’t worry about it.

If you have questions regarding pets and designer carpet/rugs, don’t hesitate to send an email and I’ll get right back with you.

All the best,

Chris

Dog Days of Summer… Literally!

I had a FANTASTIC day today measuring a home. Not one, but two dogs… and one of them was the fluffiest chow puppy. Yes, some days are better than others.

Chow puppy
“I don’t know what the big deal is. They all smell the same!”

The lab was a sweet treat. I’ve been in thousands of homes over the years and he was the best-behaved dog I’ve encountered. 5 years old and just amazingly gentle and friendly. He used to be a guide dog for the blind, but he apparently liked to pee a bit too much.

Chow puppy wants love

Pup chooses his favorite carpet
“Hey mom, I like this one!”

Be warned, if I come to measure your house and you have a dog… I’m gonna ask to pet it and I may get sidetracked!

And… if you bring your pet to my showroom, I’m going to snap a picture.
Thank you in advance for bringing some furry sunshine into the work day!!!
