Best Living Room Radiators: Horizontal Vs Vertical

Whether you’re looking to install a compact radiator or something bigger to emit as much heat as possible in your living room, we have both horizontal and vertical radiator options on offer at Stelrad. For those looking for something minimal and to take up as little floor space as possible, a vertical radiator could be the right option for you. Vertical radiators will neatly fit on your wall and provide any living room with a stylish touch, especially if you go for a vertical column radiator that will introduce some vintage 1970s vibe and make the room feel retro. Vertical radiators are a modern way to heat living room spaces, make sure you go for a vertical radiator in a colour and material that matches your current decoration. A vertical radiator is a perfect solution for anyone who doesn’t want to mess up their current furniture layout. Horizontal radiators will need more floor space but are ideal to tuck under windows or behind living room sofas. Some customers go for a combination of both in large living rooms.

Best Living Room Radiators: Materials to Go For

Choosing the right material for the best living room radiator can be difficult and you will need to think about exactly what you’d like to go for. Chrome radiators are ideal in bathrooms and kitchens as are towel rail radiators, but they can also make a living room feature. Bear in mind that you will need to keep chrome radiators especially clean and polished as any marks on them show up almost immediately.

Things to Consider Before Investing in Your Living Room Radiator

When you have decided on a size, the main thing you will need to consider when it comes to a living room radiator is the decor you already have in your home. Our white radiators will be the best option if you want to go for something standard, affordable and plain, and if you are someone that often changes up your living room decor and colour scheme. However, many like to invest in radiators that bring character, so make sure you find a radiator that fits the mood of your home. For example, you may want to avoid vintage, old-fashion style radiators if your home has more of a modern aesthetic with all white, clean looking furniture.

It’s important to consider the future and who you are living with and if you already have children, or you are planning to have children, consider them when finding an appropriate radiator. You might want to go for radiators that are covered with a panel if your children are small and often play on the floor. If you have older children and you aren’t planning to have any more, you can go for column radiators with pipes revealed as they won’t be so much of a dangerous hazard in your living room. Once you have considered these factors, you will be ready to purchase your Stelrad living room radiator.
