While most radiators are conventionally long and wide to fit into a typical room, the changing styles of home construction and design mean that traditional radiators aren’t always the best fit.
As home interior styles change and develop, there’s a wider range of radiators for you to choose from too, with great looking shapes and sizes that fit perfectly into your unique space. Read on to discover why wall radiators might be the ideal answer to your heating questions.
Maximise wall space
When you have a limited area of wall space to work with, trying to squeeze in a conventional, wider radiator isn’t always the most practical, or attractive option. They can often take up a significant part of the wall, leaving the room looking crowded and unsightly.
But vertical radiator models can work just as well, and look a lot better in smaller spaces. Though they’ll often be less chunky, narrower and less imposing, they work just as effectively, providing comfort without impacting the look of your room. With a greater range of choice when it comes to both height and width, you can choose a more tailored and personalised radiator option.
Find new styling choices
Typical wider radiators have a very limited range of styling options, when it comes to finding a place in the room where they can be put in. Because of their height and width, you’ll often need to take into consideration a wide range of factors, such as the height of windows, door position and more, and all of that can leave you feeling like you’re forced to compromise, when it comes to choosing between style and functionality.
But wall radiators can be a lot more versatile, and can in fact be an excellent way of using those awkward, narrow wall spaces in between windows or around doorways, as they come in a range of widths and lengths. By changing how and where you place your heating, you can transform the look and potential of any area in your home.
Choose more practical options
With a greater variety of radiators to choose from, there are also far more practical solutions to take advantage of too. While conventional radiators are often limited in how and where they can be used, the variety of designs in longer, vertical models means that they can add both style and practicality to a space.
For example, towel radiators are a great addition to a bathroom, and far more efficient that a wider model. Otherwise known as heated towel rails, these radiators have a ladder-style design, with narrow, horizontal slats with sufficient space in between each one, allowing room to hang a towel to dry quickly and easily.
While you might imagine that this can detract from heating the space up, the efficient design of these means that they are often more heat and cost effective, helping to keep your bathroom warm and comfortable, whilst also drying soggy towels quickly.
