How to Make a Heated Table for Comfortable Warmth

As granite, quartz and marble continue to be the most popular surface in new homes and businesses, people are discovering just how cold these types of stones feel to the touch. The coldness can make it uncomfortable to lean on, especially when sitting at a kitchen island, desk, or peninsula.

To address this problem, FeelsWarm created a product that warms the stone 20-25 degrees, just enough to take away the initial cold shock of cold countertops. These ultra-thin heating mats adhere under the stone and plug into a standard outlet inside the cabinetry.

The product works great for countertops and desks, but what about for tables that have no electrical power?

A homeowner in San Francisco, CA chose a massive, sleek stone table to go in their new kitchen and wanted the added luxury of a warm surface to sit at every day. Utilizing a custom FeelsWarm heating mat, Transworld Construction was confident that they could deliver exactly what the client wanted.

The heating mat is designed to warm the perimeter of the table, where people most commonly rest their arms and wrists. With the base of the table being a solid wood surface, the slim mat could be fully compressed in between the stone and substrate.

Transworld took the extra step of concaving a small cavity in the wood to accommodate for the heater’s wiring. This also allowed them to direct the cords to the center of the table where the power would be run from underneath.

FeelsWarm mats are designed with an adhesive backing, making it easy for the installer to secure the heater exactly in place before laying down the stone.

These homeowners can now enjoy the comfort of a warm and inviting surface without compromising the look of their beautiful new kitchen table. Plus, the heating mat utilizes very minimal electrical power, allowing them to leave it on at all times without the extra added expense.
