Even when we were cooking it wasn't making too much of a difference try moving it next to the radiator if you can and put some cardboard or polystyrene under it to reduce the cold transfer that and what the other guys said it could be finished but I think it's more likely a bit too cold for it.
Where abouts in the uk are u ? I'm Nottingham.
