Space-saving radiators are a must for small rooms. Here is a look at some of the most inviting ones on the market.
Compact radiators are just as capable of heating a room effectively and efficiently, so don’t be put off by their diminutive dimensions. They are also surprisingly stylish.
Heated towel rails
Heated towel rails are an excellent space-saving solution, especially for smaller bathrooms. They act as multipurpose tools as not only do they heat the room, but their design can complement your bathroom theme. On top of that, a heated towel rail can free up much-needed space by acting as a home for your towels, allowing your cupboard space to be used for other bathroom essentials.
Underfloor heating is the ultimate space-saving heating system as it is hidden beneath the floor. Covering a large surface area, underfloor heating is exceptionally cosy. As the warm air rises, the heat is evenly distributed throughout the room. It also means that a room can look bigger as the walls aren’t cluttered with radiators and heating units.
Column radiators come in a range of vertical or horizontal shapes and a variety of sizes to suit the size of your room, no matter how unique it is. There are many to choose from – check out apolloradiators.co.uk/designer-radiators/roma-horizontal-steel-column-radiator – and they suit both traditional and contemporary spaces.
Do your research
Choosing space-saving radiators or heating systems can be a minefield, so make sure you do your research and are armed with all the relevant information, including the width and height of the room you wish to heat and an idea of design. To accurately heat your space, our advice is to calculate the correct BTU – or British Thermal Unit – that your room requires. A BTU, in essence, is used to measure thermal energy and equates to energy required to raise a pound of water by 1 degree F at sea level. Once you have made your calculation – BTU calculators are available online – you can cross reference it with BTU readings attached to a radiator you wish to buy.
Once you have done your research, you can then enjoy choosing the right radiator for your room and relax in a warm, cosy space that is uncluttered and beautifully designed.
