With the cold winter approaching it’s important that we stay well equipped with appropriate radiators. Whether you’re currently looking for a new radiator or planning to get one for the future, it’s important you are informed with all the various designs, practicalities and other information so that you can make an informed decision on a best suited radiator for your home.
Generally radiators tend to be split into a category of either Vertical or Horizontal. Both of which provide their own pros and cons and in the end it comes down to personal preference.
Vertical radiators are tall and space saving which stand out more than horizontal radiators. If you are going for a decorative, modern look to your room then it’s definitely worth considering a vertical radiator over horizontal.
Horizontal radiators are usually the standard found in most buildings and can be specifically useful for fitting under window sills and other height limited spaces. They are often considered the safe option and in most cases, the more affordable option as they tend to be less expensive.
No matter what option you choose, a huge amount of design options are still available for you to decide from.
