Porcelain floor in Maryland home?
I have been agonizing over what kind of hard floor to put in my living room and kitchen. I have a split level home. The level that is over an unheated basement, is the 650' that are my kitchen and living room. I can't say that I've ever seen tile in a Maryland living room, but I have dogs and I feel like Porcelain is the way to go for the whole level.
As I read through this forum, I keep seeing references to how cold a tile floor will be, or to how people who live in cold climates might not want to use tile.
Is porcelain going to make the rooms colder? Will it actually increase my heating costs? Or will is just feel colder to walk on in the winter? I do plan to put a large area rug in the living room and probably the dining area of the kitchen too. So what is with the big concern about using tile in a cold area of the country?
Thanks for ANY info at all!
