I’ve written dozens of posts about home renovations over the years and I’ve covered everything from bedroom makeovers to increasing the value of your home. In fact, last year I have even written a post about ways to spruce up your radiators which is pretty specific if you ask me, but what if you don’t want to spruce up your radiators but make them a central feature of your home?
Of course, you shouldn’t just pick a specific radiator because it’s stylish but you might get lucky, as certain types of radiators are really on-trend and combine style and functionality. So try and do your research and use a tool like Best Heating’s radiator calculator before you make a purchase.
Use a radiator calculator
If you don’t know what a radiator calculator is, quickly let me tell you. They’re a really nifty tool that allows you to calculate the required output that the ideal radiator for your home should have in order to adequately heat a room. It takes lots of different factors such as dimensions, window size, wall or window material and many more into consideration and helps you find the perfect radiator that keeps your home nice and warm.
I’ve used my living room as an example and have found out that my ideal radiator should have an output of around 4453 BTU’s (=British Thermal Unit). Now, I’m completely useless when it comes to numbers and I didn’t really know what any of that meant, but luckily, I didn’t have to because Best Heating instantly gave me a list of radiators that would be suitable for a space like mine.
Column radiators for a timeless look
There were lots of different styles to choose from but I’ve kind of fallen in love with column radiators. I think they’d look absolutely gorgeous in a period property with high ceilings or a modern loft with exposed brick walls. Either way, they add heaps of character and look really classy and timeless.
