When it comes to home decor, the devil is often in the little details.
According to an article in Home Advisor, soft furnishings can be a great way to fill a room on a budget. They also add character and design to any living space. But how can your radiators – often synonymous with functionality rather than style – do the same?
We live in an age where even the most practical of household appliances can be modified into something beautiful that will complement the existing style of your home, and radiators are no exception. Gone are the days when a radiator was largely ignored unless it stopped working or needed painting. These days, a radiator can become an aesthetic feature in itself, providing an exciting point of interest, as well as comfort and warmth.
Considering that we only use our radiators at certain times of the year, it really does make sense to install ones that add a little aesthetic value to the home. Why have something mounted on your wall that you’re only going to use for its functional properties for a few months of the year, without at least trying to make it look nice too? Here are just a few popular radiator choices.
Urban style radiators go well in kitchens or bathrooms, particularly those with lots of stainless steel. It complements the industrial look of a modern living space. Often crafted from singular panels, these radiators can be electric too.
Glass radiators are popular as they are generally manufactured in large panels with a variety of different themes and pictures on them. From abstract art to landscapes and even child friendly designs for the kids’ bedroom, glass radiators don’t even look like radiators – more like artwork.
A column radiator (http://apolloradiators.co.uk/Products/View/3/54/7/category/roma/Apollo-roma-bespoke-steel-column-radiator) can fit into any home, but its aesthetic appeal would fit in particularly well in vintage or retro inspired living spaces. Available in a range of colours, these traditional, tubular radiators have evolved.
Statement or designer radiators are stylish pieces in themselves. Often crafted from chrome or stainless steel, they provide a striking focal point almost like abstract wall art. Available in vertical, horizontal and varied design, there is something for all tastes and budgets.
