With so many stylish designer radiators on the market these days, home heating options really don't need to be bulky or boring. In this day and age, designer radiators for living rooms are about so much more than just heat and warmth.
Your living room is where you relax, spend time with your family and entertain guests, so you'll want it to look good. That’s why the perfect designer radiator should complement your stylish interior design scheme and act as the focal point of your room, too.
When it comes to choosing a living room radiator, there are a lot of different things to consider. Of course, there's the fun part of looking at different colours and styles, but you should also take some time to ensure that your living room radiator provides the best heat output too. It's all well and good having a modern designer radiator, but if it doesn't do its job properly, it's nothing but a pile of metal hanging from your wall.
So, with that in mind, here are some things you should consider when choosing designer radiators for living rooms, swiftly followed by some of our favourite living radiators on the market today.
Living Room Heat Outputs
First things first, how much heat do you 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 will suck the life out of your bank account: we’re sure that no one wants to deal with that.
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.
Most of our designer living room radiators come with various panel options meaning you never need to sacrifice style for functionality. 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.
