Radiators don't have to be boring!!!
Welcome to this weeks blog:
For many years the choice of radiators was somewhat limited. Subsequently in most houses we have functional radiators, keeping the house nice and warm but not really being a part of the room design. In fact, they are normally out of the way just doing their job.
With the fantastic range of radiators now available, these essential items don't have to be banished behind the sofa! In fact, they can be an integral part of the design, proud and at the front. Manufacturers such as Aeon and Reina are at the forefront of designing bespoke hand-made radiators.
If you have a traditional design in your room, or live in a rural property, then Column Radiators would be a great addition. There are also horizontal and vertical models available, for example the Reina Colona, with prices starting from £82, would make a good choice.
If you are looking for an ultra modern design in your room, there are plenty of splendid choices available. Stainless Steel is not only a material that will never flake or dis-colour, with fantastic 20 or 25 year guarantees available, it is also very striking and luxurious to look and touch.
The Aeon Clipper below is a big seller, which would look great in any kitchen - it has the added benefit of hooks for tea-towels or clothes, practicality combined with stunning design.
For those of you with generous hallway space, Tower Radiators or Floor Standing Radiators could be very fitting - with their blazing heating outputs they really can provide comforting warmth throughout.
Should you be in search of something really striking, there are some outstanding aluminium designs around that not only heat up quickly, and are lightweight, but look fantastic as well. 3 of the best are below.
If you are designing on a budget, there is no need to compromise on design:
So radiators don't have to be boring, there are choices available for any taste or any budget. Let them become a focal point of your room - a modern version of a fireplace.
