If you are in the process of refurbishing your bathroom there are several considerations that you have to take. One of those is the type of radiator that fits best with the aesthetic of the room, but that also fits with how the room will be heated, and the rest of the heating and energy systems in the house. There are many different types and styles of radiator that are available, from ultra-modern, sleek radiators to fit within a contemporary design, to older, traditional Victorian-era radiators that provide greater warmth and aesthetic appeal.
Let’s first get to the reason why we all need radiators in a home at all, the temperature. We all want to feel relaxed and comfortable at home, and choosing the right radiator will help you to choose the right and comfortable temperature level for your property. To get to your optimum temperature level and maintain it for as long as you need to (especially important during the depths of winter), it is important to have the correct radiator in place. There is a large variety of radiators on the market, with many coming down purely to your personal choice and design ideas for your home.
To make it a little easier to wrap your heads around, let’s take a look at what you should be searching for when installing a bathroom radiator. If you have a bathroom that has a contemporary, sleek and modern design it could be that you require a radiator that fits in to the practicality and warmth of a modern bathroom. In these cases, heated towel rails are a popular choice, acting as a fantastic towel dryer, and offering comfort for those times when you leave the shower or the bath and want your towel to be warm and welcoming. Alternatively you can choose a bulkier cast iron radiator, or other larger, traditional Victorian radiator if you have designed a bathroom that is traditional in style.
Whatever you decide to do style wise, remember that your bathroom is naturally a cooler place for much of the time, but it can also suffer from condensation due to the steam from baths and showers at least once a day. The size and length of the radiator that you install will depend on the size of the bathroom itself, and the amount of space that it is required to heat up. The larger the surface area of the radiator, the more heat it can deliver to a room. You also need to know how long it will take to heat up your bathroom, so speak with the expert at your chosen suppliers to gain a feel for what you can expect.
Always be prepared to do your research when searching for the right radiators for your home. There will be many different aspects that you must consider before coming to a conclusion, including the aesthetic of the house and how the radiators fit in with the ideal décor, to the cost, energy efficiency levels and ease of installation. Always consult experts in the field, so if you decide you want to purchase and install a traditional radiator, speak with Victorian-era bathroom specialists, to gain insight into the radiators that will best complement this aesthetic.
