Welcome back to the Only Radiators blog, where this week we are proudly celebrating the increasingly popular anthracite radiator.
Stick around as we explain just why our anthracite designer radiators are so sought after, as well as share some of our favourites, which are all available right here on our online store.
What is Anthracite All About?
If you’re wondering what anthracite is, it is the colour of dark coal. And that lovely smoky dark grey colour has become a staple of designer interiors over the past few years. As you will see by the time this article ends, anthracite brings a seriously classy tone to any interior and anthracite modern radiators play a big part in this!
Anthracite makes for radiators that look incredibly contemporary and do well in finishing both industrial and organic interior effects. Anthracite radiators are often made of steel or aluminium and then coloured with that delicious anthracite tone.
It is no surprise that the anthracite radiator colour has become synonymous with luxury. Yet this shadowy luxury has never been more affordable. And what’s not to love about affordable luxury?
So, let’s now go into a selection of the best anthracite designer radiators that Only Radiators has on offer.
Flat Panel Anthracite Radiators
A fantastic first place to start is to check out our range of single panel anthracite radiators. Single panel radiators bring affordable heat to any room in the home and are perfect for smaller or busier rooms, though new technology and design increases the spaces they can heat more than ever.
Let's take a look at some of our favourites below.

BTU and You
When it comes to filling much larger rooms with heat, you will want to work out the BTU you’re your rooms requires before you commit and get a radiator that is not powerful enough or, indeed, is far too powerful.
You can achieve all of this on our site using our rather funky Only Radiators BTU calculator. Just put in the dimensions of the room to discover the BTU needed by your every room, then check the BTU figures in the information section of each of our radiators. The results can sometimes surprise you…
If you need any advice on BTUs, remember that you can reach out to our support team here.
