Designer radiators are “art”, says interior expert

Designer Radiators have come a long way in the past 15 years.  Gone are the bland white radiators – they’re now a must have and affordable accessory for many people renovating their homes or office space.

Interior Design Architect Alex Simpson said they are like pieces of art and work well in any environment.

“Rather than have just the big, ugly rad under the window where it’s function with very little form [it’s moved on]. It’s something radiator manufacturers have looked into and said ‘Well look these are things that people need but what can we do to make them a little bit more interesting’.

A radiator as we know is something that heats your house but in a lot of cases….it’s a big white block against the wall or under the window and it’s a necessary evil. They don’t look very nice.”

However, Dublin based Mr Simpson credits London- based The Radiator Gallery for rejuvenating this product.

“Companies like The Radiator Gallery have taken the next step and said let’s try and work with the design community and give them something that’s pleasing to the eye.

If you want to put something in a museum, an office, a reception area where you want a wow factor, this could’ve been ruined by a big bland radiator sitting in the corner but those things have changed, you could maybe make a feature out of it. I see it as a good step,” he said.

Alex Simpson has used designer radiators in his projects and has said he would again.

“On a reception area we had a long vertical space on a wall and we needed to heat the area so the ideal was to put a radiator which was nearly two metres long. It was done in a silver finish and it just worked very well as a piece of sculpture.”
