Converting Bedroom to Kitchen - Baseboard water Advice


Hello there!

We are just in the basic planning stages of making a kitchen out of what was once a bedroom. House didn't really have a kitchen, just stove, fridge and sink against a wall in another part of the house.

Where we have planned for the cabinets to go (see photo) is the same place the baseboard water heat runs along the floor.

What I have read up on so far is that it would be best to use toe kick heaters in the bottom of the cabinet. We are trying to understand the process as much as possible in order to be able to put a price on it or do it ourselves. Any ideas of costs??

So please educate me. What happens to the existing hot water pipes that are running through the radiators. Do they all run under the cabinet or go back down into the basement. How do I figure out if those are at the end of the loop or if the pipes go into the wall and upstairs?

Any advice of a better way?

Throw me your knowledge please! Thanks in advance for everything!!

Re: Converting Bedroom to Kitchen - Baseboard water Advice


How close is the room to your main stack and H2O supply? As far as base goes, you need to consider how much base you need to heat the space, It is probably similar to what you have so do you have that length of wall opposite your cabinets? Anyway about it, it sounds expensive because it is unlikely there is much plumbing or mechanical running near the bedroom so it could be invasive into other areas of the home too.
