onodl old 300x225For those in the know, Ondol is the traditional form of heating employed by our industrious friends the Koreans. Whilst its traditional form saw actual stoves beneath Korean palaces, it is now common practice to have electrically heated floors in the modern Korean home.

However this is not one of those space age Japanese toilets (also heated) where integration into the west is unforeseeable. The modest Ondol has found its way into bathroom renovations. Far from reducing the aesthetic of a bathroom it is barely detectable (besides the obvious warmth) and can be installed in conjunction with practically all the regular surfaces you would choose for your newly renovated bathroom. So consider these Ondol options and consider stepping out of the warm shower and no longer contending with the frigid bathroom floor that winter bears.

Electric:

Much like your electric stove top, there are coils residing beneath the surface that will provide resistance and thus heat when fed an electric current.

Hot Water:

Here we see hot water piped in coils transferring the heat to its surroundings. This may be sourced from your regular hot water supply though size is a consideration.  This is normally used in Europe and America where homes have extensive water boilers but not so much in Australia where the climate is warmer.

Other options for heating a room (to be discussed in further posts) are using wall heaters, heated towel rails, IXLs or equivalent.

    Howard - Davison

  • "We were worried about the mess that would be caused by the demolition of the old bathroom. However, Darren handled this problem with great efficiency and strength and so the rubble problem was kept to a minimum."
    Ian - Darling Point

  • "Thank you to Ray and Andre for your patience and your professionalism. A special thank you to the office staff. It doesn't matter how many times I called her, she was always pleasant and helpful, would always return my calls ASAP and most of all have the answers for me."
    Vicki - Mascot

  • "The finished job is excellent. We cannot fault the professional finish. The advice from Ray all the way through the job was friendly, always available and professional. It was his manner that impressed us most."
    Bob - Wollstonecraft

  • "My wife is especially grateful, with the prospect of a fantastic new kitchen early in the New Year. She is in a wheel chair and we plan to take most of the height out of the kickboard so that there is a double bonus for her replacement of the tired old kitchen with the beautiful new one, as well as it being much lower and therefore much easier for her to use."
    Rob and Judy - Merewether
