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 expansive 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.
