Style and placement of radiators that fit your home perfectly

December 18, 2019

New radiators can be a great way to improve your home's heating efficiency and update and refresh the look of any room in your home. Also, you do not have to be limited by the size and style of the radiator you are installing today, there are many options to choose from that will fit with your style and taste and produce the right amount of heat for your room.


Where should my radiator be installed?

To determine the size and style of the radiator, you first need to determine the type of wall you want to place it on, as it will give you the best indication.

If the wall is made of solid masonry, brickwork or blockwork, you will have the largest selection of radiators. With careful attachment, larger radiators can be installed anywhere you want.

If the wall is a little thin, made of plasterboard with hollow space behind, you will need to determine where the studs should be placed. The studs are the strongest part of your wall, and your radiator will need to be hung from them.

Of course, avoid placing the radiator behind large pieces of furniture as this will stop the heat from going around the room. Remember to insulate them if you hang it on the outside wall!


Plumbed or electric radiators?

If you want to replace or add more radiators, you will probably want to use an existing system, although there may be times where you might need to change it.

The hot water plumbing system works by boiling the hot water circulating the house through pipes. It will be necessary for you, separately from the radiator, to purchase a pair of valves for each plumbing radiator in your home as these are used to control the heat output.

Electric radiators are not centrally controlled but are controlled in each room. Modern radiators are slim, easy to install and require only mains power in your home. Some models can be plugged into a regular outlet, while others will require an electrician.


Dual Fuel

It is possible to add a thermostatic heating element that will convert your radiator into a dual fuel set. This is a device that is installed inside the radiator and allows you to heat your plumbing radiator using electricity. This will allow you to heat one unit on your own without using a lot of energy to heat the whole house.

Dual fuel radiators offer you much more flexibility and control than standard radiators because they can be used when your main central heating system is off.


The style of the radiators

Today you have many ways to make your radiator a decorative element in your home. We'll give you just a few ideas, and there are many options:

Although it doesn't seem like it at first glance, this is a radiator, not a work of modern art or a shelf for decorations.


If you want to go one step further and let each of your guests experience the 'wow' effect, choose one of these unique decorative and artistic radiators and make your home fabulous.


Radiator with LED lighting? Nothing is impossible!



With its hexagon modules, this kind of radiator breaks all the stereotypes of the towel radiator and it is in line with recent design trends. This radiator will make your bathroom look urban and give it a completely different room feel.


We are going back to the classic, for you, traditional types, though. If your annoyance is a plain white radiator, paint it in any other colour - this is proof that the radiator can look elegant even when it is of very ordinary design.


... And here's another piece of evidence for a previous claim. It only matters how the radiator is 'dressed', and your room will give a completely different impression.


Many modern radiators contain glossy and smooth surfaces and this is the key if you want to be enthralled every time you enter your room.


This is one example of how your radiator can be useful for many purposes, and it also looks great.
