Nail the trend: Vertical radiators

If you’re looking for bathroom heating then an ongoing trend in the world of radiators is the vertical variety, which features a range of designer options that will elevate your bathroom style as well as providing effective heating, of course.

If you want to incorporate a bit of contemporary style into your interior, then vertical radiators are therefore an inspired choice. Available in a range of sizes, designs and finishes, you can match them to your existing décor and even make them into a focal point within your room.

Here’s how you can nail the trend when it comes to vertical radiators and why, if you’re undecided on this particular style, you should maybe consider giving them a go ...

Vertical radiators are an increasingly popular heating choice and are both practical and stylish.

Benefits of vertical radiators

First up, if you want to get in on the vertical radiator trend, then it’s good to know the ins and outs of why they’re so popular. They do, of course, have an eye-catching appearance, but there’s more to these radiators than meets the eye, although this is definitely all part of the appeal.

If you have a smaller bathroom, then vertical radiators are great for saving on space, as they can fit into narrow gaps and won’t take up much room. You can therefore enjoy a cosy interior without feeling crowded. They also work well in hallways and other more compact spaces.

Vertical radiators also have a high heat output and warm up quickly, so are an energy-efficient option for your home, as well as having good durability, so they’re a good investment.

Meanwhile, if you want to achieve a stylish, contemporary look, then you can choose from a range of finishes and colours and easily find one that suits your personal taste and complements your décor. Designed to be stylish as well as functional, vertical radiators can be used to create a focal point within the room and enhance your overall aesthetics. You can also customise them according to your specific needs, for example, by adding towel rails and hooks.

Easy to install, vertical radiators are supplied with wall brackets for straightforward fitting and you can plumb them into your existing central heating system.

Choosing your vertical radiator

When it comes to picking the right radiator for your home, there are a few things to consider, including budget, size and style.

If you have a larger room then it goes without saying that a taller vertical radiator will benefit your room more, while a shorter one will work best in smaller spaces, although you can, of course, go taller if you like. As well as the overall room size, you also need to factor in the size of the wall space that you have for your radiator, so make sure you know the exact measurements before buying.

The heat output of the radiator will also influence which one you ultimately choose, depending on what you’re looking for and what exactly you need to heat the space you have. Choosing a radiator with the correct BTU/wattage for your room will subsequently aid efficiency and ensure that you have a cosy space.

You can add towel rails/hangers to your vertical radiator for further practicality.

The material of your radiator will also impact upon heat output, with steel, cast-iron and aluminium all possessing different conduction properties. Material type will further influence the weight of the radiator, along with cost and longevity, so it’s worth considering all of these factors before you buy.

Meanwhile, the radiator you choose will also depend upon your preferred style, whether this is more traditional or modern.
