Cold floors?

I clean houses for a living.  Not a glorious job, but it works with my husband’s and my daughter’s schedule.  I have 3 main clients that I clean for.  I don’t want to take on anymore until my daughter goes to school.  The one house I clean is 4,000 square feet.  It has 5 bedrooms and a huge open downstairs.  It takes 3-4 hours a week to clean all the rooms.  One room that usually never needs much cleaning is the master bathroom.   Odd really you would think that room was used frequently.  The small bathroom off the spare bedroom is always used.  It didn’t really make sense to me until she explained why.  The floor in the master is a beautiful tile floor. It really does shine and is so easy to clean.  But, the floor is not only cold, but it is also above the garage.  So there isn’t any heat coming up to heat the tile floor.  They have a small space heater in there but that doesn’t really help keep your feet warm.  The furnace doesn’t help either, because, they only have one vent in there and it doesn’t help the floor heat.  So they have a luxurious bathroom and no one uses it.  I guess it goes to show you that you need to plan every room out when building.  If they were to fix the floor now they would have to tear it all up and put radiant heat in the flooring.  The furnace wouldn’t help and neither would extra heaters.
