Thank you so much for this article! I live in a cold area so we are always trying to keep our houses warm but our house (unlike many other houses in this area) also gets unbearably hot and It never ever occurred to me that keeping the house cool is a priority too. I think we will do tiles with under floor heating. Heated floors with rugs for winter and cool feet for summer! Lovely.

Good article but I wanted to see examples of tiles in the bedroom. No bedrooms here.
