    Latest Product! K-Rad Compact Radiators


    Benjamin Clarke

    We've just added someabsolute classic radiators to our collection in the form of our quality Kartell K-Rad Compact Convector Radiators.

    Whilst we often champion the option of making your radiators the centre-piece of the room, there is also the other side of the coin, whereby radiators can quietly and subtly do their job in the background with the minimum of fuss. The K-Rad definitely falls into the latter category.

    For many people, due to budgetary or style constraints, they simply want a good quality radiator that will comfortably heat their living environment when called upon and you cannot do much better than the K-Rad for this purpose.

    Manufactured from high grade steel and using the latest technology to ensure maximum heat efficiency, the K-Rad comes in over 200 different sizes, as well as having the options of single or double panels and convector fins. These very versatile rads are suitable for any room in your home and can fit in virtually any space you can think of. 

    The K-Rads are the perfect choice if you want a simple and affordable option for replacing the radiators in your home, office or any other living space requiring heat. 

    Their high quality build is evidenced in the comprehensive 10 year guarantee that comes with each of these radiators and we will deliver them free to any mainland UK address!

    Case study - Italian Centre Apartment, Glasgow


    Benjamin Clarke

    We've been absolutely delighted to be closely involved in this fanastic apartment renovation in The Italian Centre in the heart of Glasgow. 

    Just a stones throw away from George Square, the award-winning Italian Centre was opened in 1991 and was really responsible for kicking off the urban regeneration project in the Merchant City area of Glasgow.

    This particular flat was purchased by entrepreneur Roger Herbert as couple of years ago in quite a state of disrepair. Roger could see the potential in the building because of it's quality construction and amazing location.

    "Though I felt the apartment itsellf need completely gutting and starting from scratch, I loved the amount of light that flooded in through the huge sash windows and I knew I could turn it into something special," Roger explains.

    There was a lot of work involved to get the apartment to the stage that you see in the photos below, with all walls removed and the entire flat being completely remodelled.

    Roger says: "I've really got to give credit to my builder wee Willy. At one stage he was working 16 hour days, 6 days a week to get the project done, which really helped move things forward, especially as I was away with some of my other business ventures."

    The results as we're sure you'll agree are pretty spectacular with some lovely touches throughout the two bedroom flat, including a spacious luxury spa bath in the master bedroom, a dropdown wall projector in the living room and a remote controlled power shower in the bathroom.

    Trade Radiators was called upon fairly early on in the project to provide heating advice, especially important during those long Glasgow winters. As there is no boiler system in the flat, we discussed the options with Roger and opted for a delightful combination of designer electric radiators and infrared panels to ensure the apartment remains comfortable and efficient!

     ABOVE: The open-plan living room and kitchen providing great views of the courtyard below. A lovely brown leather corner sofa for relaxing, accompanied by at stylish black leather chaise-long. Heat provided by the awesome Anthracite Electric Vela Designer Radiators.

    ABOVE: View of the open-plan living room, dining room, kitchen area. The wooden flooring has been the most recent addition, just to complete the stylish makeover. Featuring the Anthracite Electric Vela Designer Radiators.

    ABOVE: Roger's unique kitchen features wood stripped out from the original decor, reconstituted and used as part of the design.

     ABOVE: The kitchen cabinets can be hidden by roll-across shutters, perfect for creating a smooth, minimalist look when the kicthen isn't in use.

    ABOVE: The beautiful light that originally attracted Roger to the apartment floods in as the dropdown projector displays soothing landscapes on the huge cinematic flat screen. 

     ABOVE: The master suite featuring a slightly elevated sleeping area, along with the luxurious deep oval bath. Pride of place above the bed is a Electric Frame Glass Infrared Designer Radiator - stylish and energy efficient with 100% of energy converted into heat!

    ABOVE: Just off George Square, the view out of the master bedroom of the spectacular Glasgow City Chambers, a building worthy of a visit in itself. 

     ABOVE: A slick and minimalist main bathroom, featuring a remote-controlled power shower, a hidden cistern toilet and, most importantly, a Pisa Black Designer Heated Towel Rail.

     ABOVE: The most recently-finished part of the apartment is the geneously proportioned second bedroom, again with the huge sash windows, great view and heat provided by the Anthracite Electric Vela Designer Radiators.

    ABOVE: The Italian Centre was designed by architects Page & Park and was based on an Italian-style palazzo. This is the view from the living room, down onto the many restaurants and shops that are contained within the complex.
