I’m adapting a room as a music playing / teaching / recording room in a house we moved into earlier this year. I’m planning to leave my harps and an upright piano in it, and the room has a concrete floor. It’s still very much a work in progress and the picture shows the old room still being stripped out before new electrics and plastering.
However, at this stage I’m planning the floor surface as it has to be ordered. I’ve already decided it should be wood rather than vinyl or tile.
But I’m torn between having radiators or underfloor heating. I’ve read a lot of conflicting advice. I get that you need to have engineered wood floors as otherwise the floor will expand and warp, but not a lot on the effects on instruments. Has anyone had any DIRECT experience of having underfloor heating in a room with instruments? Are there problems or not? Should I leave it on all the time?
