Looking to heat your home in style? Instead of having heating that is hidden away and pragmatic only, what if you could have a stunning, fashionable heating element that also works to warm your home both efficiently and effectively?
You can accomplish both by incorporating traditional Victorian-style radiators into your house or apartment. Whilst following older patterns, there is a wide range of brand new retro cast iron radiators available which are manufactured to modern standards, leading more and more people to use radiators as centrepieces for their rooms.
Out of all of the different types of vintage radiators available, the Victorian styles are considered the classiest. These radiators, almost always formed and moulded from cast iron, are distinguished and handsome.
You can find them in simple designs of block or rounded columns, or the more ornate designs favoured by the upper classes in the late 1800s. Both of these styles come in many different finishes, shapes, and sizes depending on your preferences.
If you are looking for something ornate and detailed, consider a scrolling or floral pattern for the exterior of your radiator.
In general, these radiators tend to be slightly slimmer and simpler than their counterparts. Purchasing a unit in cast iron means that you are often purchasing what was once considered a work of art.
Cast iron is not simple to work with and requires great skill and the ability to be precise. Once you decide on a model, you can easily calculate your BTU heat output to determine which radiator would be right for you.
Remember, any house can look great with a Victorian radiator. Even if you like the modern look, a little cast iron vintage flare will only add to your décor. Explore our range of Victorian style radiators, and see what they can do for your home.
