The best solutions for bathroom concepts

Undertile heating in bathrooms

This is another economical way of heating a whole bathroom, and is one of the best heating options for tiled floors in the bathroom and can be installed in both new and existing bathrooms. 

Paul says undertile heating is the best type of heating for tile and stone as they both have high thermal conductivity, meaning heat from an underfloor heating wire transfers to the floor surface quickly, warming the floor surface where you require it.

“Combining correct control with the correct installation gives you a cost-effective heating system, with no more cold spots or chilly drafts,” he says.

“Maximum effectiveness can be achieved when using insulation boards as they reduce footfall noise and echoes in your larger tiled areas.”

Undertile heating is part of the Wetroom System, and can also be done as a separate service. Warmup undertile heating, including installation, is available across New Zealand.

Installation is usually done just before tiling, causing minimum disruption to your building or renovating schedule.

Misconceptions about cost

You might think this kind of luxury is expensive, but the costs for undertile heating are in fact very reasonable. Paul says on average a standard bathroom would cost about $750, and this includes full installation with a lifetime warranty, and a seven day fully programmable digital thermostat fit off.

Sustainable and eco-friendly small bathrooms

Smaller spaces are becoming more popular in Kiwi homes. Warmup NZ has worked on all sorts of projects – big and small apartments, private houses – new builds and renovations, hotels and retirement villages, and now they can add tiny houses to their extensive list.

A tiny bathroom can also be made to look comfortable, functional and beautiful. Walk-in showers are often the preferred option in small bathrooms. Installing a corner-fitting shower enclosure with a shower screen can take less than a square metre, which is particularly important when you have limited space.

“Modern floor-to-ceiling frameless shower screens create an uninterrupted view through the bathroom and make it look bigger and more spacious,” Paul says

Adding value to your home

Modern looking and professionally installed tiled walk-in showers will add value to your home – every dollar you invest in your property can double when you decide to sell your house.

There’s nothing quite like walking into a brand new bathroom which looks and feels luxurious and is structurally sound as well.

Warmup has added a new dimension in affordable, luxurious and effective heating, which is simple to operate and maintenance free.

Warmup NZ has a network of national distributors who provide quality underfloor heating solutions to homes and businesses across the country.

New York restaurant group launches second of five new ghost kitchen concepts in Dallas

Kitchen to Kitchen, a New York-based digital restaurant group, launched its second delivery-focused restaurant last month on Aug. 6. The company’s first concept, Meatball Kitchen, which started in March, and the new Sweetbasil Thai Kitchen are headquartered in a central commissary kitchen in Garland, in one of Revolving Kitchen’s 25 commercial cloud kitchens available for rent.

The restaurants are the beginning of five total ghost kitchen concepts the company plans to open in Dallas, the city they chose to establish national operations.

Ghost kitchens, sometimes called dark kitchens or virtual kitchens, refer to a growing business model whereby restaurants exclusively sell food for delivery or carryout. While ghost kitchens have existed for some time, new ghost kitchens have started popping up in Dallas in response to the pandemic, like TLC Vegan Kitchen, ZaLat Pizza, and three new Detroit-style pizzerias.

Kitchen to Kitchen, on the other hand, set their wheels in motion in January, before the pandemic, because as marketing director Ben Green explains, “delivery sucks,” historically. Oftentimes, restaurant food sold to-go isn’t built to withstand a long car ride. It’s also expensive, and not to mention bad for the planet.

Kitchen to Kitchen’s mission is to revamp delivery by selling food designed to be as delicious when opened at dining room tables as it was when it left the kitchen, Green says.

“We imagine an experience that doesn’t make you feel bad for the amount of money spent or the amount of packaging used,” he says.

Deliveries are packed in paper bags with recyclable, reusable to-go containers. Each order includes a personalized, handwritten thank you note. The company’s motto is: hospitality, delivered. “The whole interaction is designed to make customers feel taken care of — because food is an expression of care,” Green says.

In addition to deliveries within 5 miles of Revolving Kitchen in Garland, Kitchen to Kitchen seeks restaurant partners to reach new customers and increase their delivery radius without having to open new locations. The bulk of food preparation is completed by Kitchen to Kitchen’s chefs at Revolving Kitchen and then delivered to restaurants who “put the last mile together,” Green explains. Partnering with Kitchen to Kitchen is a way for restaurants to increase revenue while still selling their own food in whatever way they’re accustomed to doing.

Green says Kitchen to Kitchen’s leadership chose Dallas to test their concepts because “Dallas is America’s greatest food city” with “a lot of talent and discerning palates.”

The company is co-founded by Dean Furbush, formerly the CEO of Fresh Direct. His vision is to prioritize a work culture of respect and sustainability for everyone connected to the company — from contractors to the planet.

“We’re excited to be in Dallas and launching these concepts here first with its core ethos being care, hospitality and unconditional respect across the board,
