The Best Column Radiators | Part 2

The Best Column Radiators | Part 2

Colours

Let's be clear. White is the most popular colour when it comes to choosing radiators and if you ask someone to imagine a radiator, it will almost always be a white one. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that as white is the traditional colour associated with radiators and you can guarantee it will never go out of style.

In fact, many people who want something different from a standard convector radiator want it to be the style that is different, rather than the colour. So for that reason, white column radiators are the perfect choice for those who want a traditional colour but not a traditional design.

However, recent years have seen more people branch out from white and choose a colour that is not a shade typically associated with radiators. For those considering a change then it's important we point out that our column radiators are available in a range of other colours than white.

Anthracite grey

Anthracite grey radiators

Thanks to their featuring in many TV design and makeover shows (as well as regularly appearing in interior design magazines), radiators finished in anthracite grey have become the 'go-to' colour alternative to white. Essentially charcoal with a silver undertone, anthracite looks great as a radiator colour and is capable of creating a modern and contemporary feel to any room a radiator this colour is installed in.

Not so imposing as black and far less common as white, anthracite column radiators have steadily grown increasingly popular for those who consider radiators to be an important part of their overall design plan, rather than a functional afterthought.

Raw and lacquered metal

There are a lot of people who like the look of cast iron radiators, but don't like the fact they are very heavy or simply feel that they wouldn't look right in their type of property. The design of column radiators provides a suggestion of the cast iron style but with a more contemporary twist. They are also much lighter than cast iron rads and are usually very heat efficient, making them a perfect alterantive.

For those fans of cast iron radiators, we offer some excellent column radiators that are finished in raw or lacquered metal, enabling people to choose a modern radiator that hints at the past. Colours include brass, copper, nickel or bare metal which really help to provide an industrial-chic look to any room.

If you do have a hankering for a stylish radiator with a metallic finish, then these column radiators may well be the best option for you.

At Trade Radiators, we are able to provide column radiators in a whole range of colours, so you are not restricted to the ones highlighted above. Some of our column radiators are able to be custom-coloured with an RAL colour of your choice, so please feel free to get in touch if this service is required.
