Central heating is so important when living in a cold climate, and this includes the traditional British winters. Coming in from the cold into a house that is cosy and warm makes a family home a nice place to be. Nobody wants to come home and sit shivering in their coat waiting for the house to heat up. Central heating isn’t only about warmth however, designer radiators are a tasteful and smart way to heat up your home and change it from something ordinary into a place of splendor.
At one time central heating radiators were bland, unimaginative and boring, for functional purposes only, necessary to keep the house warm and that was about it. It wasn’t until people started to demand new styles and interesting colours that designers realized there was a market for designer radiators. Now, the traditional white rectangle radiator is seldom seen, due to an unrestrained choice of alluring colours and sophisticated shapes including spirals, whorls, or swirls of metal. Some radiators resemble abstract art, whilst others are formed to look like statues. Today there is a great deal more choice of radiator styles when it comes to redecorating your home.
Your radiators don’t have to be the same in every room any longer, there is so much choice that why not have a different style in each part of the house? For the children’s playroom or bedroom, it’s possible to find designer radiators in animal shapes, imagine their delight when they see such a thing! In the living room add some sophistication by choosing flat burnished panels to provide the heat, and in the kitchen, mass tubular radiators offer a no-nonsense solution to this practical room. In effect, you can totally customize your home and make it a truly unique and personal haven.
There are all sorts of advantages to modern designer radiators apart from looking great, the main one is their flexibility. You can buy them in a huge range of sizes, shapes and colours, which means that they can practically be hung in any sized nook and cranny in the house. For example, if you want some heat in the hallway but space is minimal and a horizontal radiator just won’t fit in there, then instead choose a tall, narrow unit that takes up minimal floor space.
Traditional cast iron radiators take some time to heat up and warm the room, also when switched off they tend to take their time cooling down again. These days, designer radiators offer a much more efficient alternative as they are made of materials such as stainless steel and aluminium that are efficient heat conductors and extremely responsive. This permits you to fine tune your heating system with the outcome being greater efficiency and economy.
