6 Winning Designer Radiators
With winter right around the corner, it’s a good idea to start thinking about a heating solution. Radiators work well but they’ve always been industrial-grade and made from aluminum or cast iron. They’re clunky-looking and hard to conceal. Luckily, the future is now and the days of ugly radiators are hereby deceased.
Radiators have come a long way, as evidenced by the sleek and meticulously designed units from Antrax. There’s a product for all design categories from the whimsical Sole above to the low-key Dune radiator below.
It’s refreshing to see such headway in the radiator market. Designers are solving heating problems with creative solutions that fashionably serve as art rather than bulky, obsolete eyesores. Today’s radiators are becoming pieces of furniture, combining function and heat.
Take, for instance, the beauty pictured above. Called Treo, it heats the bathroom while providing a towel warmer in the winter and towel rack in the summer.
Scudi actually looks like an art piece hung on the gallery wall. Who would have guessed that this is a radiator? Scudi would look incredible in a large bathroom, spa or living room. And it makes me crave hot chocolate.
Your radiator can even masquerade as a decorative wall panel. I love its simple modern approach to home heating. The tactile possibilities are endless and although I never thought I would say these words about a radiator, I can hardly wait to see next year’s models.
This contemporary radiator is called Moon and brings a calm, Zen feel to the bathroom. Talk about a win-win – it brightens up the walls with a cool design while literally warming the whole space.
Heating a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, or living room doesn’t have to be a gloomy chore. You’ll be showing off your radiator instead of hiding it behind the curtains. You’re now equipped with just a few design ideas that can change the way you enjoy cozy warmth on a cold winter day.
