Best Living Room Radiators

With so many stylish designer radiators on the market these days, home heating options really don't need to be bulky or boring. Designer radiators for living rooms are about so much more than just heat and warmth.

When it comes to choosing a living room radiator, there are a lot of different things to consider. There's the fun part of looking at different style options, but it's also important that your living room radiator has the best heat output. 

Living Room Heat Outputs

It's important to consider how much heat you actually need. Having a radiator that doesn't produce enough heat is completely pointless. But, at the same time, having a radiator that produces too much heat is not cost effective.

To work out exactly how much heat you need, simply enter some details about your living room into our handy BTU calculator, and you'll be ready to start shopping designer living room radiators.

Size and Space

You should also consider how much space you have and whether you'll be better choosing between horizontal or vertical radiators, and single or multi-panelled.

A multi-panelled radiator creates a high heat output in a smaller wall space but also requires a little more depth. In a narrow room, it's smarter to choose a single panel radiator since you'll be looking to save on depth. In a larger room with limited wall space, a double panel radiator might be the better choice.
