Old Style Radiators

A period property deserves the best period features. At Stelrad, we manufacture premium column radiators which are ideal for Victorian, Georgian, and Edwardian homes. We may be biased but we think we have the best Victorian radiators in the UK. These vintage style radiators add to the authenticity of a property as well as work hard to keep your home warm. Of course, if your modern home has period décor or a traditional twist, these old school radiators are perfect for you too.

It was during the Victorian period that radiators came into their own – starting to feature in more homes and begin designed for visual appeal. These old fashioned radiators were cast iron column radiators. Heavy and not so easy to control, Victorian cast iron radiators had the advantage that they held a lot of heat.

Homeowners still love vintage radiators but, nowadays, these retro radiators have had a modern makeover. Made of steel and far easier to control, Victorian radiators have entered a new era and continue to be popular.

So, there’s no need to opt for an antique radiator that’s hard to use; Stelrad have combined the most up-to-date radiator construction with traditional radiator design to give you the best old style radiators for today’s modern living.

Choosing the Best Vintage Radiators

The Victorian column radiator sustained its popularity, seeing it become the go-to Edwardian style radiator and then the must-have Georgian radiator. So, whatever period property you own, our range of column radiators is sure to fit the bill.

Our Victorian radiators come in a wide choice of sizes to suit your room requirements. In fact, Stelrad has the largest range of radiator sizes in the UK. To choose the best radiator for your room, we have two useful tools. The Radiator Size Calculator will show you radiators suitable for the wall space you have.

The Heat Loss Calculator is an essential measuring tool as it calculates how much heat you need for your room. Radiators of the same size may produce different amounts of heat; so, when deciding which size Victorian style radiator is for you, make sure you use this tool.

Retro Radiators with Contemporary Colour

Old style radiators don’t have to be old fashioned radiators. Bring them into the 21st century by adding contemporary colour. Our Classic Column Horizontal Coloured Radiators range gives you a choice of 35 colours.

So, if a gold radiator for luxe design, a dark green radiator for grandmillennial decorating or a pink radiator for your cottage core bathroom are on your mood board, we’ve got the perfect Victorian radiator for you.

Level Up Your Vintage Style Radiator

Another way to add a modern twist to a Victorian radiator is to combine it with the hot trend for vertical radiators. Using the traditional radiator column construction but extending it up the wall give you a Victorian style vertical radiator that will make an on-trend design statement in your traditionally styled home.

Take a look at our Vita Column Vertical Radiators to find your perfect old fashioned vertical radiator today. You can also explore our full range of vertical radiators.

DESIGNER VICTORIAN RADIATORS FAQs

What is a Victorian Column Radiator?

Victorian column radiators are identified by their upright sections which can each consist of 2, 3, or 4 columns. The sections are lined up, side on, and joined at the top and bottom.

They are weighty, old style radiators in terms of presence and their bold metal ridges stand out proud. It is not a minimalist radiator. Instead, it is a strong, statement radiator that will be a much-admired piece in your interior design.

Are Old Style Radiators Efficient?

Just because these are antique style radiators does not mean they use old fashioned radiator technology. Stelrad, as one of the leading manufacturers of Victorian style radiators in the UK, use the latest advances in radiator construction to ensure our radiators are as efficient as possible.

Due to the increased surface area of Victorian column radiators, they are one of the most efficient radiators you can buy. The column construction of these traditional radiators also allows for effective air circulation, helping the convection process and providing better warmth for your room.

How to Bleed Victorian Radiators?

If you find that the top of your Victorian Radiator is cool even when the central heating is on and the bottom of the radiator is warm, this is a sign that your radiator needs bleeding.

Like standard household radiators, a Victorian style radiator will have a bleed valve at the top which can be opened by a standard radiator key.

Turn off the central heating and, using a rag to catch any water which may escape, insert the radiator key into the valve and turn. You will hear a hiss as the air escapes. Once this hiss stops and only water emerges, promptly close the valve.

Turn your central heating back on and allow some time for the circulation to complete. You should have a toasty warm Victorian radiator once again.
