Modern designer radiators are ‘hot’ in both senses of the word! With cool, funky or classic designs and ultra-efficient heat output, designer radiators have transcended their functionality and become works of art in their own right. And many are available in electric models, which means you can install them anywhere.
Radiators are no longer things that are so ugly you hide them behind a sofa or the curtains. There’d be no point in doing that anyway because it’s such an inefficient way to heat your home. With the heat going directly into the back of the sofa or straight out of the window, your heating system would have to work a lot harder to keep the room warm, and that will mean bigger heating bills! Much better to install Art radiators which have been designed to become one of your room’s main features and position it in the best place to make the most of the heat.
When it comes to looks vs practicality, you don’t need to worry about the valves and pipes ruining the effect – Art radiators are designed to have the valves and pipework hidden behind them. So it’s just like having a great piece of wall art that just happens to also be a radiator.
Just like the best Fine Art, stylish Art radiators will always stand the test of time. Some of our most popular models have become classics in their own right, earning their place in the heart of the home. If you’re looking for a work of art that has a timeless look and continues to be popular with our customers, here are some of our Art radiator classics:
Frame – The Frame radiator is unsurprisingly popular because it is a work of art in itself. From Pop Art to Post-Impressionism, modern abstract to personalised photography, any style of image can be put on the Frame, ensuring it does not look like a radiator at all.
Metacrylic – The acrylic panels that overlay the steel panel of the Metacrylic give it a 3D relief effect. The panel colours can be as bright or subtle as you’d like them and will be enhanced as shadows play across them as the light changes.
Cortina – The metallic tiles of the Cortina radiator give it a high-quality patchwork look. The tiles are in different shades and finishes, but all are curated to work in harmony as a whole.
Heatwave – the original Art radiator, and just like a classic piece of Fine Art, the award-winning Heatwave is, admittedly, beyond most people’s budget. But that’s what makes it so special.
Art radiators are extremely popular and new models are coming onto the market all the time. We often caution people that because the majority of Art radiators, and indeed designer radiators, are developed in Italy, the radiators aren’t necessarily suitable for homes that have to withstand UK winters! However, we will not stock any models that aren’t powerful enough to cope with the UK’s climate, giving you the peace of mind that whatever design you prefer will definitely be up to the job. Here are some of the latest additions to our Art radiator range:
Sfere – If you’re looking for something a little different in style, the Sfere doesn’t even look like a radiator! It actually looks like a large button and comes in one size only. This means that if you want to heat a large space you’ll need multiple radiators, but that’s all part of the fun. Funky, colourful and cheerful, they could turn your home into a contemporary art gallery! They also make handy towel rails for the bathroom.
Cliff – Every Cliff radiator is unique. The patterning and organic tones look worthy of any gallery space but are created by using a real stone veneer. They bring a subtle elegance to any room and look positively stunning.
Perla – If you’re looking for practical beauty in the bathroom, the Perla is not just an Art radiator, it’s also a towel rail. With its very pleasing styled curves, the Perla offers plenty of room for the whole family to keep their towels warm and dry, and it comes in a huge range of colours, so your radiator can be as bright and cheerful or understated and elegant as you want.
Art radiators are an investment in your home
Radiators can last for decades, which means they’re not something you’re going to buy very often. Given that you’ll be living with something for such a long time, wouldn’t it be a good idea to pick something that you’ll actually like looking at, even if the price is a little more? An Art radiator will be a stunning centrepiece in the room and will never lose its value. There are lots of styles to choose from, and it’ll be a great addition to your art collection.
