Designer Radiators and Your Home Interiors
If you are thinking about updating your home heating elements to reflect more of your own personal lifestyle and that of your home, you need to think about every single design element in your home including your radiators.
It’s not just about the obvious things like floor plans, wall and interior décor items, fixturing, lighting and how you set up your furniture to make the room feel open, spacious, and comfortable.
You should also consider the heating elements in your living space.
Are they truly reflecting your own luxurious lifestyle? Here are a few tips to get your heating game on par with the style and design elements in your home today.
Choose Striking Colors
If your living space is primarily monochromatic and minimal in tone choosing a designer radiator unit that is bold in colour could be just what you need to add that element of surprise and drama to any room.
You can choose pops of colour like bold reds, yellows, and oranges to bring warmth and depth into an otherwise all white room. If you aren’t a fan of bright pop colours, you can select softer hues that will invoke a feeling of calm and that will allow the radiators to not be such a focus.
Size and Shape Matter
You will also want to pay attention to the size and the shape of the units that you choose for your rooms. A tall radiator may look amazing on narrow or slender wall surface, while a long horizontal waved unit will look better on a wider wall.
Tall radiators, otherwise known as upright radiator units give you the ability to place them anywhere on a wall surface unlike their horizontal counterparts that are often places running along the floor of the room.
A tall radiator can be placed as a focal design element, in the middle of a prominent or facing wall in the living space of your choice.
Pay Attention to Finish
Finish is just important as color and makes a huge difference in the overall look and feel of any room. Radiators come in a variety of finishes including chrome, brushed stainless steel, polished stainless steel and more depending on where you are sourcing them from.
If you have cast iron radiators in your home, you can choose to have them refinished to make them look as if they are brand new or as restored antiques. This can add further interest to any room and is a great option for older homes that have cast iron radiators that are still fully functional radiators that you want to keep intact but need a bit of a facelift.
Choosing the right radiator units for your home that truly reflect your own sense of personal style, the style of your home and your budget doesn’t’ have to be a difficult, boring or challenging task. Approach it with the same joy de vivre that you would any other home interior project and you will be glad that you did
