What are the latest radiator trends?

Having a reliable and efficient heating system is a must, especially at this time of year.

Traditionally, homeowners opt for one style of radiator throughout the home. But with new designs and styles being introduced all the time, buyers are now looking at radiators not only to warm a room, but also to make a statement and enhance a room’s decor.

Colour choices
Previously, radiators were almost always white in colour, but the market has recognised the demand for more choice and radiators are now available in a range of colours.

Towel rails
Almost all newly installed bathrooms and wet rooms will have towel rails instead of traditional radiators and these are often in a chrome finish. However, if buyers are looking for something a bit different and are prepared to search the market, they will find several suppliers offering towel rails in a choice of colours and finishes. One thing buyers needs to aware of is that a towel warmer is not the same as a towel rail. A towel warmer will give you a warm cosy towel when you step out of the shower or bath, but not necessarily a warm cosy room. Towel rails do offer sufficient heat, but only if they are large enough for the room, which can mean investing in a vertical design which is fixed from floor to ceiling.

When changing your radiator, or heating system, it is important to get advice from a qualified installer like Cheltenham boilers specialist, HPR Services. If you are looking for Cheltenham boilers advice, HPR Services are experienced in repair and installation.
If you like to keep your heating on overnight, be careful not to overheat as this can cause you a restless night and leave you feeling tired in the morning.

Period properties
Modern radiators are also available in traditional styles, so buyers living in a period property can still keep the look and feel of their property, but the main difference will be that modern day heaters are more efficient and have the ability to warm the home much more quickly.

Whatever type of heating design you opt for, always get it installed by a qualified professional and be sure to get your boiler serviced regularly. Remember to ensure your bathroom has adequate ventilation to prevent dampness.
