Selecting your Edwardian-style radiator

Edwardian radiators are a popular choice for many homes as they come in a variety of styles and can be adapted to complement the interiors of most rooms. They are usually made from cast iron and for this reason they are considered to be very durable. There are several design features that can be considered in order to make each radiator unique.

Number of columns

People purchasing Edwardian radiators will usually have the choice of 2, 4 or 6 columns. Radiators with a larger amount of columns will take up more space, but the heat output will be greater. It’s therefore important to take into account the size of the room and what the purpose of the radiator will be. If the radiator is going to be the centrepiece of the room then a larger radiator may work in a smaller room, but otherwise it may look slightly overbearing.

Height of the radiator

Edwardian radiators often come in a choice of heights and the person purchasing the radiator will be able to choose the height that will best suit the rest of the features in the room where the radiator will be located. For example, if the radiator is going to be placed under a shelf, it should be measured to ensure it will fit here before it is purchased.

Colour of the radiator

There are a number of choices that can be made with regards to the colour of your retro radiator and the paint effects that will be used. This means that Edwardian radiators can be used in any room as it is possible to find a colour that matches almost any décor. If at any point the room that contains the radiator is redecorated then it would also be possible for the radiator to be repainted so it fits in with the new colour scheme.
