As the winter months approach, you may be considering updating the heating system in your home, perhaps with some designer radiators.
One of the most energy-efficient ways to heat a home is with radiators. Practical they may be, but you can also make a real style statement in any room with the right choice of the radiator.
The secret is to ensure that you choose the right size of the radiator, both in terms of the dimension of the room and the level of heat output that you require. There are a number of factors to consider when selecting the most energy-efficient radiator to suit your property.Once you have decided on the size, you can have free rein when selecting the design. If you want a classic panel radiator, you will be spoilt for choice. These come in a huge range of sizes and designs suitable to blend in with any décor and period of the property.
If your style leans more to the contemporary, there is a wealth of designs to choose from. Modern radiators come in many different styles, and to add real impact to space you could opt for a striking vertical design in a bold colorway. As well as being extremely chic, a radiator of this type will also open up more wall space. You could also consider investing in one of the mirrored styles available. As well as making a bold style statement, a radiator of this type will both increase the feeling of space in a room and also provide an unbeatable output of heat.
If you live in a period property, you may want to choose your radiators to reflect the history of your home. There are some wonderful Victorian column styles that perfectly set off a room in a house of this age. These can be customized to suit your existing décor, and you could opt for a style with an integral wooden bench – perfect for extending the seating options in a traditional sitting room.
