The success of the old style radiators
The old saying is true – There’s nothing new under the sun. The nearly 150-year-old cast iron radiator is popular again, of course its coloured and modernized versions.
When the available wall space is limited
It is not easy to equip a bathroom where the available space is limited in a way that all necessary equipment can fit while you have enough space to move. In this case you need a practical narrow bathroom radiator since you must resolve both heating and towel drying.
'Two in one' solutions
Furnishing a fairly small flat requires a lot of thought, for example, how you can maximize the use of the wall areas, especially in the bathroom, in the hallway and in the corridor. These days several types of radiators offer different solutions to these problems as they can be used not only for heating but also for other functions.
Giant strides forward in the radiator industry
Although many people still consider not only unique models designed by a well-known designer, but also ordinary coloured radiators too as a novelty, the fact is, that the radiator industry has made giant strides forward in the last couple of decades.
These days it is obvious that the most common radiators can be ordered in 1-2 hundred different colours to perfectly fit to colour scheme of the furnishings of the living room, tiles of bathrooms and even the blankets of beds.
The most common heating radiators in UK
Central heating radiators (also known as hot water radiators) are the most common heating devices in the UK, because people mostly use water radiator systems in their homes (whereby the water gets heated to 75°C by the boiler or to 55°C by the condensation boiler).
Contemporary radiators bring you the finest in style and comfort
Modern radiators are becoming an increasingly important part of a stylish home décor. In light of this development, these days there is a wide array of contemporary radiators sold, and these come in a variety of shapes, materials and sizes as well.
Create a pleasant warmth all year round
Electric towel rails are slightly handier than plumbed-in towel radiators as they operate independently from the heating system, therefore they are excellent at maintaining the desired temperature and drying your damp towels regardless of the heating season.
What color should we choose?
Interior designers and decorators advise us not only to rely on our taste but to also take into account the dimensions and the function of our rooms when we choose the colours used in our home. It is also worth heeding this advice when we buy designer radiators.
Visual impact and utility
The eye catching appearance of the Serpentes and the Snail radiators is created by using the unusual of shapes. They can complement perfectly any modern bathrooms. Moreover, these towel radiators are even able to give an up-to-date character to an ordinary bathroom as well.
You do not have to spend time on search
There are quite a few people who would like to buy a horizontal bathroom radiator as there are many bathrooms where only a wide and low towel radiator can be installed. Obviously, the manufacturers try to satisfy the customers' demands widely.
The Tornado designer radiator can create an authentic atmosphere
In recent years industrial interior design is becoming increasingly popular. The use of rough textures, raw materials, basic components and exposed electrical and plumbing systems are the main characteristics of this decorating trend, for which the Tornado designer radiator is a perfect match.
Towel radiators for all seasons
Why can be a dual fuel towel rail be very handy in a bathroom? It might not be widely known to everyone that there are heated towel rails which are not only connected to the central heating system but also can be powered by an electric element. Therefore we can switch this radiator on and off independently, even if it's connected to the central heating system.
Black radiators are the most popular
Coloured radiators are gaining popularity in among customers. The most preferred goods are black radiators despite the fact that designer radiators are nowadays available in all colours of the rainbow. (Of course, the previous statement is only true if we do not consider traditional white radiators as coloured ones.)
In countless styles, hundreds of colours and several heating types
Designer radiators offer exceptional adaptability and versatility due to the variety of sizes, colours, materials, heating types and styles available these days. They come in a wide range of materials, hundreds of colours, countless styles and – naturally – different heating types, therefore these modern radiators are really capable of meeting all customer expectations.
Attractive, efficient, environmentally friendly
The use of the aluminium radiators so much preferred in Continental Europe has begun to gain ground in UK due to the fact that they are already available not only as a slightly ugly panel radiator but also in a fashionable modern appearance created by famous designers.
If you are accustomed to the old style and insist on it
Despite the fact that there is a huge supply of tubular and panel radiators with modern shapes, there remains substantial demand for column radiators. This might be due to the fact that many people are accustomed to conventional radiators (as there are still a lot of homes in the UK where old style radiators are installed) and they prefer to buy similar radiators when it becomes necessary to replace the old ones.
Buy a towel radiator instead of a clothes airer
It is good news that designers nowadays not only focus on making towel radiators more decorative, but also on making them more practical. Bathroom radiators have always been capable of drying towels and a few small clothing items, however these days a growing number of towel radiators are coming on the market which are able to perfectly function as conventional clothes airers.
Two popular models
We are going to take a close look at two popular design radiators in the current blog post. It is worth dealing with them because these central heating radiators are suitable for anywhere in a flat or a house from bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms to kitchens and hallways. So they are offered for those who do not want to search for radiators for a long time, who prefer the simplest solutions, namely: the same model everywhere.
Similarly the other unusual heated towel rails
Towel radiators have become a standard element of bathrooms in the last two decades. We have now reached a point where many people are looking for heated towel rails with non-conventional shapes that differ from the standard rectangular and ladder-like ones. This is the main reason behind the rapidly increasing popularity of asymmetric towel dryer radiators.
Considerations when buying new designer radiators
Horizontal radiators are the most popular – and for good reasons. First and foremost, traditional radiators were usually produced in horizontal versions, therefore when the replacement of old radiators is necessary, the installation of modern horizontal design radiators is the easiest.
Perfect combinations of classic style and modern technology
In our posts we usually try to draw your attention to latest design idea of the radiator market, however this time we recommend some traditional heated towel rails to you.
After all, many people still keep to the old style towel radiator and, let's face it, these towel warmers match better with period bathrooms than other new ones.
Successful combinations of form and function
Today some modern radiators – apart from heating, their fundamental function – can be used for a variety of purposes. Especially in those areas where space is limited, a designer radiator can come very handy by serving in multiple functions. These innovative heating solutions can be bought with mirrors, shelves and hooks, therefore they can serve as a coat rack or a shelf.
Either a thin and tall vertical radiator or a squat and short column radiator
Despite the fact that there are a few important factors that need to be considered when choosing a new heating device for the entrance hall, there are several opportunities for us to solve the heating problem with an appropriate design radiator.
Heat output matter
When we buy a new central heating radiator, we usually think about a tubular radiator in a single row tubes version. However, if space is an issue, an alternative model with double rows (or with more columns) could be a good solution.
Look at our thin flat panel radiators and tubular radiators with flat tubes
In rooms where space is at a premium standard tubular or column radiators can take up more space than is necessary. For these smaller living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and halls, slim radiators can be optimal heating solutions.
The Toscana at the top
This is a truly amazing bathroom radiator with an exceptional design. This, coupled with its great functionality, makes the Toscana radiator a uniquely refined product. The Toscana, designed and manufactured in Italy, is a practical heated towel rail, a handy shelf, and a striking addition to modern bathrooms at the same time.

Not all the same
For a cursory glance, it might seem that most heated towel rails look the same, but if we take a closer look at them, we realize, that this is absolutely not true. Almost all of them differ from the rest, even if the differences are only small details such as thickness of tubes. No matter how small these differences may seem, they determine the overall image of a towel radiator.
Amazing stone towel radiators

Today chrome radiators are the second most popular ones after the traditional white radiators. It is not surprising, that the chrome is preferred by customers because it is a modern, durable and scratch-resistant material. Additionally, a chrome towel radiator, for example, is a stylish and timeless piece of a bathroom, with which you cannot get bored.

The clean lines and the wide selection of colours (it can be ordered in 208 RAL colours) mean that the Max radiator can be a perfect solution for any home interior.
Let's have a look at Italian designer radiators
The world-famous Italian design, like in so many other areas, has dominant position in radiator production. The majority of modern, multifunctional and artistic radiators come from Italy. This is not surprising as nowadays the appearance of radiators is just as important as their output. Admittedly, Italian radiators are equally characterized by capturing creativity and perfect functionality. They are not simple heating devices but also imaginative, attractive and, not incidentally, useful ones. Among both room and bathroom radiators you can find luxury ones just like more simple and practical, yet fashionable and quality designer radiators as well.
Designer radiators with LED backlit
Since the appearance of heating devices is becoming more and more important, radiator manufacturers have their new models created by designers. As a result, more and more special and imaginative designer radiators come on the market. One of the innovations is that radiators are fitted with hidden LED lights, which give them a magnificent decorative effect. With this new additional "function", designer radiators can become really an amazing focal point of any room.
If you need a powerful designer radiator
It is obvious that heat output is the one of the most important factors when purchasing a new radiator. If we want to heat not only an average size room, but also a relatively bigger one or a whole studio flat, we need a powerful radiator. Today it is not a problem at all, because there are several designer radiators – both tubular and flat panel radiators – which are capable of meeting any heating requirements.
Let the bedroom radiator be a good combination of appearance and functionality
Which factors do we need to take into consideration when we buy a new bedroom radiator? Naturally, it is important to know determinative 'technical' features, such as the required heat output, connections and dimensions. However, it is at least as important that our new designer radiator is visually pleasing and is able to turn the bedroom into a comfortable area of our home. So we should find a perfect bedroom radiator which is a successful combination of appearance and functionality.
A designer column radiator from quality steel is the answer
These days there is still a sizeable percentage of older homes in the UK where traditional cast iron column radiators are installed. When it becomes necessary to replace these, we have to decide what kind of new radiator would be the best choice.
It is true that a cast iron radiator keeps the heat longer than others. However, a modern steel column radiator (in the same size) can provide higher output than a cast iron one.
The result of a new technology
Low-temperature radiators with natural stone front panels offer comfort, high-end design and top energy efficiency due to the unique concept of heating and cooling fan coil technology.
Why are these low temperature heaters so special?

One of my reasons is that we can kill two birds with one stone: get through the hassle of renovation and install new and beautiful pieces of furniture, that is, coloured radiators. Today a number of designer radiators – room radiators and bathroom radiators as well - are available, which really appeal to me as opposed to characterless old ones which are only installed for their functionality.
From moderate priced bathroom radiators to expensive models
Many people choose flat bathroom radiators instead of heated towel rails because they provide higher heat outputs.

So the flat panel towel radiators are more suitable for very cold bathrooms which most of the old houses have.
