So here goes, we asked our experts to handpick 8 of the best slim radiators - and here are the results!


1. Best for style 

DQ Heating Dune Stainless Steel Vertical Designer Radiator

Available in two finishes and six sizes, this stainless steel designer radiator has so much to love about it. 

Its vertical design adds style and prominence in your room while still fitting to small spaces. 

The stainless steel construction provides longevity and durability and also meets the demands of those looking to follow the latest interior trends. 

The shiny design, available in either a polished or brushed stainless steel, has a mirror finish which is great not just to check out your reflection, but to open up your room and give an illusion of space! 

2. Best for wow factor 

Aeon Bamboo Stainless Steel Wall Mounted Vertical Designer Radiator

If you’re looking to make a statement with your heating then there’s little that will beat this stunning range of slim radiators from Aeon. 

Designed to look like bamboo but constructed from sustainable stainless steel, there are five size options and two finishes to choose from. 

This neat yet statement radiator has dual fuel compatibility so can run either on your central heating or electricity, and it comes with a whopping 20 year guarantee. 

The two finish options include polished or brushed stainless steel depending on your preference and the bamboo replica design creates an undeniable wow factor within your room.

3. Best for luxury 

Aeon Stanza Stainless Steel Free Standing Vertical Designer Radiator

If the price tag isn’t the first thing on your mind then this absolutely amazing radiator also from the Aeon range ticks plenty of boxes. 

Freestanding in design, it almost passes for a sculpture or piece of art in your room, as well as providing that all important heat source. The box-like construction makes it a little more space-consuming than flatter, mounted options, but it also gives it more flexibility on where it can be placed within your room. 

There are three size options and two finishes, brushed or polished stainless steel, to choose from. Stainless steel is really hot (pardon the pun) right now and gives you a little more style from a radiator - not to mention the efficiency and longevity of the material itself. 

For those where style and luxury far surpasses price, then this one’s for you!

4. Customer’s choice 

Hudson Reed Revive Compact Vertical Designer Radiator

What’s a better recommendation than customer’s living with their chosen radiator and loving every second! Our customer favourite from our range of slim radiators is this stunning muted anthracite grey design from Hudson Reed. 

A vertical orientation with four panels creating the design, it’s a subtle yet very stylish addition to any space whether that’s a bathroom, bedroom, living room or hallway nook.

Also available in white for those who favour a more traditional look, this radiator is manufactured from top quality mild steel for durability and also makes it much more affordable. 

This radiator runs solely off central heating so is an option for most areas of the home and is tall but not too overwhelming so any size house will benefit from it. Read more of the customer views via the product page.

5. Best on a budget

Slim radiators come in a range of price points so nobody has to miss out on these funky, stylish accessories. If you’re looking to upgrade your heating on a budget, we have just the choice.

6. Best for a traditional space

EliteHeat Vertical Designer 3 Column White Radiator 

Working with a traditional space? No problem. We have this gorgeous slim radiator that wows with its period vibe, but still looks chic and contemporary - and it's not a bad price either. Often traditional pieces for the home can be super expensive but this is a great stylish product for a very affordable price. 

EliteHeat offers a range of heating options with stunning finishes and exquisite designer touches and this three column option is a neat choice for smaller nooks that need a boost. There are five size options, though, so for larger period rooms with high ceilings, you have more choices to fill that space. 

Its pristine white finish and sturdy mild steel construction give it longevity for your home and it comes with a 10-year manufacturer guarantee, too. 

7. Best for a modern twist

Aeon Twister Stainless Steel Vertical Designer Radiator

This is probably one of my favourites on the list! The curved design, polished stainless steel finish and the quirky twist options make it a really fancy addition to any home. 

Let’s face it, this radiator gives off so much more than heat! It screams designer and has buckets of wow factor for a real statement piece for the home.

Add to that you have nine variations to choose from, including three heights and three width options and the choice of either a half (180), full (360) or double (720) twist options - the degree that each single panel twists - all adding much more dimension to the design. 

For a heat source that doubles as a piece of art, this is the one. But have you wondered about whether you should invest in vertical or horizontal radiators

8. Our favourite 

DQ Heating Cassius Column Style Mild Steel Vertical Designer Radiator

And finally, a best seller here at Only Radiators is this Cassius Column designer radiator. Available in anthracite and traditional white with three width options, it stands tall at 1800mm to provide a really efficient heat source for your room.

Customer’s love that it has a traditional radiator look but taken up a level with its size options and vertical structure. Not forgetting that the wall mounted design makes it save space for smaller and more awkward spaces.
