Designer Radiators UK - FAQs
Are Designer Radiators Any Good?
Designer heaters are a step up from traditional radiators, boasting exceptional quality, innovative designs, and stunning aesthetics. While some people may be content with their tried-and-true standard radiators, we believe that these radiators offer not only superior performance but also elevate the look and feel of your space.
When choosing decorative or funky radiators, it’s essential to appreciate them as functional works of art, rather than just functional items. Our luxury radiators come in a wide range of designs, colours, and styles, allowing you to choose a radiator that truly complements your decor and makes a statement in your home.
Ultimately, whether designer heaters are right for you comes down to personal preference. However, by selecting a Stelrad radiator, you can rest assured that you’re investing in both quality and heat performance, regardless of your chosen design.
Do Designer Funky Radiators Give Good Heat?
While designer radiators can provide good heat, there are several factors to consider when choosing the right one for your space. For instance, it’s important to keep in mind that vertical radiators may not provide the same level of heat output as horizontal models, due to their physical properties. This is because vertical radiators have less length to draw cold air up for convection, which can affect their heat distribution.
Another important consideration is the colour of your designer radiator. With so many colours and styles available in luxury radiators, it’s easy to find one that complements your decor. However, it’s worth noting that there is a relationship between colour and heat dispersion.
For example, chrome or black radiators may not emit heat as effectively as white radiators. To ensure optimal heat output, you may want to opt for a horizontal designer radiator or consider installing multiple tall and slim vertical radiators. Additionally, our heat loss calculator can help you determine which type of radiator is best suited for your specific needs.
Are Designer Radiators Efficient?

Crafted from high-conductivity steel compounds, our UK-based radiators ensure optimal heat output that can potentially save you money on energy bills.

How Do You Fit A Designer Radiators?
Installing a designer radiator doesn’t have to be difficult, even if you’re not a plumber. The process for fitting a vertical or horizontal designer radiator is similar, but inexperienced homeowners may wish to have a plumber install their radiator anyway to avoid any issues.
