Central heating is a vital component to any household, especially in the colder, darker months where the weather is less than kind. While they do a very important job, the aesthetics of radiators leave a lot to be desired. Designed with functionality prioritised over looks, radiators can be clunky and take up a lot of space in any room. However, there are a few simple tips you can follow to greatly improve how your radiator looks and how it fits in with your living space.
If you feel like your radiator may be beyond help, all is not lost. Radiator covers are available in a vast range of styles and sizes, ensuring that your radiator will fit into the décor of your room. Radiator covers also double up as a shelf or mantelpiece, for pictures or accessories to add to the look and feel of your room. Radiator covers needn’t be a bulky inconvenience; they can be styled and accessorised as well as anything else in your home.
Perfect for homes built or designed to resemble a certain era, vintage style radiators can add extra beauty and authenticity to your living space. Vintage radiators are made from either copper or cast iron, and are available with beautiful unique designs to add extra character to any room without compromising on functionality. You don’t have to break the bank to afford such styles either, as there are plenty of fantastic replica versions available for those on a tighter budget.
For those who want to revamp their radiator rather than replace it completely, radiator stencils are a great choice. Stencils allow you to enhance your radiator and design it exactly how you want to, and it’s something that the whole family can get involved in. Ready-made stencils are available, or if you’re feeling particularly creative, you can make your own. They can be removed as and when you want to, so updating your radiator to match your room is incredibly easy.
Above are just a few simple tips to help you add a bit of life and creativity to what is perhaps an otherwise bland and sometimes unattractive feature of your home. Whether you want to add a little bit to your existing ones or completely new radiators for installation, there are different options available to you. While your radiator may not be the most attractive element in a room, it doesn’t have to stay that way!
