somewhat flooring related- heated granite countertop?
I posted this in kitchens and someone suggested a more appropriate forum for technical help, , I think this is the one.
My co-worker told me today to consider heating my island countertop. He has a large granite slab and it is very cold in the winter. His family gathers primarily around the island and it is too cold to rest their elbows on in the winter. He suggested a system that could be turned off and on with a switch. It looks like you could use the electric mats that are made for under floor heating. I wouldn't want a warm countertop, perhaps just one that is not cold. Has anyone seen or done this?
What would the layers be?
