How to Choose a Traditional Radiator for your home

Though they’re perhaps not the first design features that you think of when redecorating your home, your radiators can have a huge impact on the overall success of your finished design, and can make or break your home’s new look.

Occasionally, you’ll spot a radiator that you love so much you build your entire interior design scheme around it, however, more often than not, choosing your radiators will be an natural part of completing your design and a great finishing touch in your home.





So if you’re struggling to choose just one of our fantastic radiator designs, here are some things to think about to help you narrow it down.

Size
The very first thing to do before choosing a radiator is to work out exactly how much space you’ve got to install it in.


If it’s going on a long, straight wall this won’t be too much of an issue, however if you want your radiator installed under a window, in an alcove or within a pre-existing radiator cover, you need to know that it’s going to fit.

When calculating the size of the radiator that you require, remember to take its width as well as its height into consideration or you may be left disappointed.

 

Location
The destination of the radiator in your home will also have a big impact on the style that you choose.

For example, if the radiator will be mostly out of a sight, a simpler design would probably do, however if the radiator is going to be in a prominent position then its design is going to be a lot more important.

Period design
Our radiators are specially designed to cover a range of periods, so no matter what style you’ve chosen for your home, there should be a radiator to suit it.

From the elaborately decorated to the all of our radiators have a huge amount of decorative appeal and can contribute a lot to any interior.

All of our more intricate radiator designs would look fantastic installed in a home with existing period features, complimenting things like wooden floors, fireplaces and cornicing perfectly.

Contemporary design

Anything from the strong, clean lines to the modern rounded edges would look great in any home, giving a great designer touch to your central heating.
