Does your home suffer from a case of ugly radiator-itis?
If so, you’re not alone. Nowadays, lots of people are looking at their worn out, white paint flaking radiators and asking “isn’t there a more attractive way to heat my home?”
Radiator covers are the solution to giving your radiator an instant makeover. Basically consisting of a MDF box with a grill that you place around your radiator, the radiator cover craze has swept the nation. To help you see why, here are 4 benefits of using one.
First and foremost, radiator covers are inexpensive and easy to install. No need to hire a specialist – all you need to do is assemble it, plop it over your existing radiator and enjoy. Contrast this with the hassle of getting rid of or replacing your radiator, and you can see why covers are such a popular option.
2. Improved Safety
A downside of radiators is that they can be scolding hot if accidently touched. By installing a radiator cover, you are adding a layer of MDF between you and the hot surface, meaning the radiator will be safer for both you and your family.
Bulky and prone to rust, radiators traditionally have more value in their function than their aesthetics. One of the great things about radiator covers is that they can instantly make your radiator more attractive, and with a huge variety of colours and design available, you are sure to find one that fits your colour scheme.
4. More Space
There’s no denying that radiators take up a fair old bit of living room real estate – room that could otherwise be used to add decoration and personalisation to your living room. The great thing about radiator covers is that they give you another surface to play with, offering more space for ornaments, decorations and other knickknacks.
