Unfortunately for us, radiator shopping isn’t something people get particularly excited over. While shopping for a new sofa, TV or bed can bring about that level of happiness that can only come from having shiny new things, radiators have an unfair reputation for being, well, a bit boring.
But we’re on a mission to take that view and, well, bin it. Radiators are far from boring and, while we may be a little biased, radiator shopping is absolutely something to get excited about. Why? Because we’ve got a whole range of radiators that are weird, wonderful and wacky. Forget the standard white models that have decked homes across the country for the past 25 years. In fact, forget everything you know about radiators at all. We’re here for the weird, and we’re here for the wacky - and we think you should be too.
Let’s check out our top 5 weird and wonderful radiators that’ll help bring something a little (or a lot) more eye catching to the room, while impressing your visitors and heating your home at the same time.
First up, we’ve got the DQ Heating Oakham, which is here to prove to you that even towel rails can be funky. This heated towel rail is very versatile, perfect for bathrooms but can also be used as a feature radiator in any room in the house. It has an incredible contemporary design that’ll bring a touch of class to any room, and it comes with customisable shelves making it practical as well as good looking.
This stunning towel rail has a modern matt black finish which makes it perfect for contemporary homes. With its slim design, it’s perfect for smaller rooms as well as larger, but it certainly doesn’t shy away in the corner! It can be connected to your central heating, is available in 5 different sizes and comes with a 5 year warranty.
Fancy getting your hands on this weird and wonderful towel rail? This model costs just £213.95 for the 640 x 200mm size.
Bring a little touch of the ocean to your home with this ultra-modern Brenton Onda Wave Radiator. This stunning radiator makes a real statement thanks to its subtle hint of contemporary style with the beautiful curved design - a fun twist on the classic horizontal radiator look.
This radiator is wall hung and looks at home in any room in the house, although we love it paired with minimalist decor in a family living room. It has a great heat output making it perfect for heating large rooms, and it’s made from robust mild-steel. This radiator can be powered by your central heating and comes with a 3 year manufacturer’s guarantee. It costs just £169.99 - a total bargain for the size and look.
If you’re into the weird and wacky, but you also place a high value on luxury, look no further than the Aeon Ottoman Freestanding designer radiator. This stunning model is so modern it’s practically futuristic, and it looks more like a work of art than a room heating device!
Place this radiator in your bedroom for the ultimate luxurious look. It’s bold, expressive and will make any space feel cosy despite it’s minimalist feel. It’s made from the highest grade stainless steel and comes with two finishes - brushed matt for an even more contemporary feel, or polished for something a little more traditional.
This model comes in various sizes so you’re bound to find one to suit you, and it comes with a whopping 20 year manufacturer’s guarantee. Choose from the range of sizes and finishes, and you won’t look back!
We won’t pretend this model isn’t costly. If you have a higher budget or fancy treating yourself to something a little (a lot) more fancy, this Aeon model should be top of your list. Prices start from £1,482.95.
Next up we’ve got the Bauhaus Wedge heated towel rail radiator, which offers a modern twist on the traditional ladder towel rail design, thanks to its unique off-angled bars. However, this is still a practical towel rail, with some straight bars for warming your towels easily.
This towel rail has a fun, statement look that is simply stunning in a modern or minimalist bathroom. It comes in 3 different finishes, metallic black matt, soft white matt and chrome. We love the chrome finish for its sleek and sophisticated look that suits any colour scheme,
This statement towel rail has a great heat output and can be powered by central heating or dual fuel. This means even when your central heating is turned off in the summer, you will still have a soft, warm and cosy towel to greet you as you step out the shower. This model comes with a 5 year manufacturers guarantee, and costs a very reasonable £529.99.
Last on our list of statement radiators is the Reina Fiore designer steel radiator which (and we know we say this a lot) really is less of a radiator and more of a work of art! This has a stunning eye-catching design and is perfect if you’re bored of traditional radiators and fancy something a little more wacky!
This stunning model is elegant and individual. It’s bound to be the envy of all your friends, and is perfect for any room in the house including the bathroom. But while it may not look like a radiator, it certainly behaves like one. This has a fantastic heat output and is made from top class steel. It connects to your central heating and comes with a 5 year manufacturer’s guarantee.
This model comes in 2 stunning finishes, anthracite or white, and costs just £379.99. That’s a luxurious, designer radiator for the price of a standard model!
