Everything You Need To Know About Designer Bathroom Radiators
Are you the type of person who enjoys a good life? Then, creating a comfortable and functional bathroom is the perfect way to getting one step closer to that life of luxury.
How comfortable is your bathroom? If it isn't the most relaxing, there's perhaps a good reason to think about creating a stylish and memorable bathroom space.
Firstly, why should you consider buying a designer radiator for your bathroom? The average person would be happy with a generic standard bathroom radiator. That’s a no-brainer. The top 3 places where people do their deepest thinking and have their most productive thoughts are:
- In the Shower
- Driving in the Car
- While Walking Outdoors
Did not the most famous "Aha!" moment in history – the discovery of Archimedes’ principles of density and buoyancy – occur in a bathtub?
So, adding a designer radiator to your bathroom adds more of a creative push, than using a generic standard radiator. Sure, you can add a steering wheel grip to your car or a top of the line stereo system. But why not spare a thought to energise your bathroom space?
You enter the bathroom a number of times during any given day. Hence, it makes a lot of sense to use the space to create an uber-stylish theme that gives you a positive atmosphere to live in. It’s been recorded that a personalised bathroom can help improve the overall mood of the occupant. The connection to choosing bathroom appliances that pique the interest of the owner gives a subliminal connection each time the owner enters the room. The smallest thing can trigger a subconscious reaction in your mind. You don’t even need to directly notice the appliance.
Why Purchase a Designer Radiator?
You should say, Why not? The cost is not absurd, and the features and functionality are much more than what a generic radiator offers. You can choose from a selection of designs that meet your inspirational needs.
Value for money is the number one reason you should purchase a designer radiator. We see customers in the store do the maths and work out the amount they save overall. They see the benefits and decide to go one up and purchase one of our stunning designer radiators with the money they will be saving.
Is a Designer Bathroom Radiator an Affordable Luxury?
Pamper yourself and your family. Taking into account that we live in a very cold part of the world, using a heating system to warm the bathroom is a smart investment. You will find that the bathroom is not a friendly place when you shower in the early hours or on chilly nights. Imagine putting your bare feet on the cold tiles. Then, running the cold shower water for those agonising seconds until it is bearable to the naked flesh isn’t any fun. This all doesn’t sound very glamorous, does it? Obviously, this is not the best way to enjoy showering.
A designer bathroom radiator is, without a doubt, an affordable luxury as the cost of production has dropped and that allows for a reduction in sale prices. What once was reserved for the five-star hotels is now accessible to every homeowner and business owner. Looking at the bigger picture, the money you save from installing a radiator heat system outweighs the initial investment.
The savings grow over the year, and the return on investment is there. Why continue being cold and miserable in the chilly mornings just to save on a heating bill?
Adding our stylish designer radiators to your bathroom gives much more than just a warm showering experience. Some radiators will even warm your towels. Making the purchase decision will be so much easier when you consider the money you save over the years while the radiator will still remain a joy in your bathroom.
How Can You Enjoy Showering?
To truly enjoy every aspect of using a bathroom and shower, you can add a radiator heat system. Step it up a notch and buy a designer radiator system to spice up the ambiance of your bathroom.
Taking the above scenario involving the cold tiles into account, let’s play it back but now using a bathroom radiator system. For this instance, we have set a timer to schedule the warming of the bathroom area. Imagine waking up in the morning and heading to the shower to begin your day. You enter the bathroom and place your bare feet on the already warmed bathroom tiles. Then, you begin to run the water in the shower but do not need to wait out those agonizing seconds for the water to become bearable, as you can enjoy warmth much sooner. Getting out of the shower back onto the warm tiles is certainly more pleasant compared to stepping on cold tiles. Standing in the bathroom without a towel on during the coldest parts of the day is very unpleasant. And the number one reason you should buy a radiator heating system is to avoid this situation.
To pamper your household with some toasty warmth in the coldest parts of the day is money well spent. Escape the misery and welcome the trips to the warmth. The beginning of blissful days is indeed creating a luxurious bathroom that functions as a bathroom.

Steps for Selecting the Right Designer Bathroom Radiator
The key to selecting a designer radiator that complements your bathroom space is knowing your bathroom. You should intimately know your bathroom space and whether you prefer a theme that is modern or retro.
Once you know the design and theme, you can progress to the selection stage for your designer radiator purchase. Arm yourself with this key knowledge before you start enquiring about purchasing a designer radiator.
Next, identify your budget. The price tag on a designer radiator differs from a generic radiator but not as much as you might think. Your designer radiator should fit into your budget and fall within the theme of your bathroom space.
There are some universal designs that work with most bathroom themes. These universal designs will fit the theme but might require you to purchase some additional appliances. Mainly these additional bathroom appliances will be pattern and design relevant to the new designer radiator. Theme reoccurrence is not vital but breaking up your bathroom design is not what your radiator design should do. The new radiator design should work with your existing theme.
Finding a magnificent design is a tough process. When you see it, you will know it. One funny occurrence we notice is that all the planning in the world can be thrown out once you find a design that you like. Seeing couples and renovators come in with plans of their desired design and then changing designs after browsing the store is a common occurrence.
Pro Tip: Create a list of 3 to 6 radiator designs that you like. Having backups makes the process easier.
Set on a style of the designer radiator but not a design of the radiator. One of the main forks in the road is the design of the actual radiator. They all look so nice and do nearly the same things, so choosing a radiator based on design holds up the buying process for many people. This is completely normal and often takes two looks at a design style before the choice is made. With such an extensive range of designer radiators, we know you can be overwhelmed by choice. When it comes time to select a designer radiator, ask for help from our customer service superstars and they can recommend a third party suggestion.
Judging the Performance of Designer Radiators
The performance of designer radiators as a whole cannot be judged. To judge a designer radiator, you have to drill into the make and model to get the specifics. The questions are like asking how long a piece of string is. For the answer, drill down into what style and design you like and compare designer over generic.
The designer radiator ranges not only work like charms; they also look amazing. Each designer radiator will come with its own features. In most cases, they offer slightly more features than the generic radiators. The highlight of buying a stylishly designed radiator is the look and display features of the radiator.
There are some features that create more energy-efficient use, and several have a power-saving function. The answer is it varies. Some of the designer products do outperform, and some are very similar to the generic range but are much nicer looking. These efficient designs provide effective heat output that warms your bathroom as intended and does it in style.
Electric Radiators: A Popular Choice
Look at your existing heating system, and this will give you an indication if you should go electric or not. If you have an existing central home heating system built-in, then going for electric radiator systems is a simple process.
When you do not have a pre-existing central heating system, there is some installation required and it can be quite technical. Speak to the in-store customer service assistants to get more information and our recommendations on what to do.
The general consensus from us is that Electric Radiators are the easiest way to go.
