5 of the best horizontal radiators for your home

Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 2 weeks ago 6 min read

What’s comfort without a touch of style? For interiors that feel both warm and welcoming, we showcase 5 of the best horizontal radiators for your home.

When it comes to keeping your home warm and cosy, radiators are often the unsung heroes of household heating systems. Not only do they provide essential warmth during chilly months, but they also contribute to the overall look and feel of your living space.

While vertical radiators may be great where space is tight, horizontal radiators stand out for their sleek design and efficient heat distribution. Whether you're looking to upgrade your current heating system or add a touch of style to your home, choosing the right horizontal radiator is crucial.

In this blog post, we'll explore 5 of the best horizontal radiators on the market, each offering a perfect blend of functionality, style and warmth for your bathroom, kitchen, living room… well, just about any room in your home! So, let's dive in and discover the ideal heating solution to take your living space to new levels of comfort and elegance.

1. The Heating Co. Corso column radiator

Whether you’re updating a traditional or contemporary style setting, Victorian or Edwardian style radiators never go out of fashion, presenting a timeless, sophisticated appearance.

The Corso column radiator from The Heating Co. is a highly popular choice for bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms, featuring a high quality powder coated finish and durable steel construction.

It comes in 2, 3 and 4 column models, depending on the BTU output you require for your room, and is available in 3 different colours: white, anthracite grey (pictured above) and matt black.

Also available in wide choice of sizes, ranging from an ultra-compact 500mm x 654mm, to a substantial 600mm x 1490mm, this vintage-inspired radiator looks clean and classic, especially when complemented with a set of traditional radiator valves. Or, pair with a matching set of radiator feet (see below) for a seamless look.

2. The Heating Co. Bonaire horizontal flat panel radiator

Famously, Henry Ford once said his customers could have a car painted any colour they wanted, “so long as it is black”. Substitute “white” for “black”, and Ford could just as well have been talking about radiators! White has long been the standard colour for household radiators, with very little scope for creativity. That is, until now.

For a more contemporary look, we’ve picked out the Bonaire flat panel radiator from The Heating Co. Complete with an on-trend anthracite grey finish, it’s sleek, stylish and built with modern home interiors in mind.

Suitable for wall hung installation, this mild steel radiator is tested in accordance with British Standard EN 442 (the relevant standard for heating products), so you can be assured it is of the highest quality.

Of course, if white is exactly the colour you need, you can choose this option too (see below)!

If you believe you’re stuck with just a handful of basic colours and finishes for your horizontal radiators, here’s something to make you think again!

With the Vibrance range from The Tap Factory, you can choose from a rainbow of colours, like pink (see below), indigo, English mustard and blue (see further below), to name but a few. In fact, at Victoria Plum, you’ll find a selection of 14 bold and beautiful shades, to match your décor.

These highly contemporary radiators feature a high quality powder-coated finish, plus a mild steel construction for exceptional durability.

Pleats, curves, shells and frilly shapes are a big bathroom trend for 2024 and beyond, and this type of radiator is a great way to add trend-led design to your space.
