Plain, white radiators are a distant memory when it comes to modern homes, as stylish, designer radiators become more popular - and it's easy to see why. With a variety of styles, finishes, and colours, you can use your new radiator to add to your interior, instead of simply fading into the background. And that doesn't mean they compromise on heating ability either. Whether you're looking for a modern towel radiator for your bathroom or a centrepiece for your living space, there is something for everyone. Here are a few ideas for using and installing designer radiators in your home.
Light up the room
Many modern homes are choosing radiators as a way of enhancing their interior, and there is one particular designer radiator that has grown in popularity over the last few years - the chrome radiator. These radiators have a polished finish and come in a range of styles - they are most commonly used in modern bathrooms. Stainless steel radiators are also available and can create a stylish look in any home.
Along with effective heating to keep you warm and cosy in the winter months, these radiators come with another great benefit. Choosing a highly polished finish means light can bounce off your radiator to reflect around the room - great for smaller, darker rooms, making them look more spacious as a result. A chrome or stainless-steel radiator can fit perfectly with a range of interiors, working as a centrepiece in a minimal room to add some style.
Choose a bold colour
When you think about a standard radiator that features in every home, big and bold probably isn't the word you'd use to describe them - if you even notice them at all! But now, designer radiators come in a range of colours, which allows us to create the perfect interior in our homes, suited to our aesthetic and personality. No matter the style you choose, whether that's column radiators, vertical, or flat panel radiators, you can choose almost any colour that you love. If you're choosing a colour to fit with a calmer, neutral room, you can choose from stone, or grey colours to suit. If you're looking for something a little bold, why not choose a vibrant contrasting colour depending on your space? With so many choices, it may be difficult to decide!
Create an elegant and chic look
Whilst bright, bold colours are suitable for some, they may not be your thing - we all have different tastes - but thankfully, designer radiators can accommodate for this. Designer radiators provide some of the most elegant designs on the market, perfectly suited to the modern home. Cast iron radiators have a real rustic feel, especially when left with their natural finish. Even if you have a modern home, these traditional-looking radiators can look stylish. Metallic, polished radiators are also the epitome of elegance, allowing you to enhance your interior with a sparkling finish.
Think about function
Of course, radiators are still meant to do their job, but functionality doesn't mean boring. If you're short on space, a towel rail works perfectly. Not only can you choose the specific width, and height that you need for your space, but you can also use it as a place to store and dry your towels, whilst also warming the room. Getting out of a warm shower into a cold, damp towel is not great, but you can eliminate this issue by using a modern towel rail. You can even benefit from designer mirror radiators, that heat the room and act as a mirror, so you're not taking up space installing both in your bathroom. Genius!
