It's common to discover during the winter months, when your central heating is in full swing, that some of your radiators are scruffy, noisy and generally not fit for purpose anymore.

Equally, if you are renovating or building a property, then one of the most important factors will be to ensure the central heating is up and running, with adequately-sized radiators in every room.

It's likely that your first thought will be to install simple white radiators on your wall to upgrade your property.

However, this article is here to show you that you can be much more creative with your radiator choices and opt for a stylish and contemporary anthracite radiator.
