For those who have limited experience of DIY or plumbing tasks around the house, it can be very easy to look at a small room or narrow piece of wall space and decide that it's impossible to fit in a radiator.
For that tiny percentage of people who don't live and breathe central heating related matters like we do, it can be easy to think of a radiator as something that is white, horizontal and needing a large amount of wall space.
And that's a perfectly understandable thing to think. However, we are delighted to let you know that this is not always the case.
(Those of you with tiny under-stairs toilets that you thought would always have to be cold, should start to get excited now.)
Improvements in radiator technology
In actual fact, radiator technology has come a long way over the last 20 years with smaller sizes with high heat outputs an absolute reality.
For example, come convector radiators can be small in dimension, yet have double panels and double rows putting out a high amount of heat. Likewise, column radiators now come with a choice of 2, 3 or even 4 rows of columns, allowing you greater flexibility in the size of radiator you choose, no matter what size the room.
There has also been an increase in popularity of vertical radiators, making a lack of horizontal space a problem that is easily overcome. If you've previously written off many spaces in your home as too small to squeeze in a radiator, the list below might convince you to reconsider adding a heat emitter to that area.
