Curved radiators have become the latest trend among interior decorators and home owners alike –and with good reason. They come equipped with a number of benefits that will work with any interior design style you’re looking for, and they also have the potential to save money.
What is a Curved Radiator?
A curved radiator is typically intended as a standalone radiator that comes with all the benefits of the old cast-iron radiators –but with a modern twist. Many modern curved radiators are built with modern radiator technologies that make them more efficient, space-saving, and environmentally friendly.
Simply put; a curved radiator is a high output radiator that is designed with a physical curve. A curved radiator possesses all of the traditional features and benefits of a typical radiator; it can heat or cool your home, is made with your choice of materials from cast iron to aluminum, and is curved to fit in obscure places such as under a bay window or the corner of a room.
So whether you are looking to fill a tight space or ways to lower electric bills in the winter, there might be a curved radiator in your future.
The Benefits of Curved Radiators
Now it’s time to take a brief look at the benefits that come with owning a curved radiator. Most of these will apply in a number of different configurations;
- Curved Radiators fit in Awkward Places
Curved radiators for bay windows are often shaped according to custom dimension specifications –and it’s quite easy to do so. Most curved radiator companies will simply ask for a floor template, which is just a matter of laying out a large piece of paper in the floor area where you wish to install a curved radiator –cut to size and proportion of the floor space. That’s all a curved radiator vendor needs to start curving your radiator to your custom specification.
- Curved Radiators Warm or Cool Problem Draft Areas
Typically the most drafty places in your home are under household bay windows, and this is where curved radiators shine. A strategically placed curved radiator will be able to keep drafty areas in sync with the rest of the temperature in your home. This can help prevent draft hot or cool air from outside from spreading to the rest of your home.
- Curved Radiators are High Fashion Luxury Items (without the cost)
Curved radiators may be affordable, but they certainly don’t look like it. Choose from a wide selection of colours, shapes, and styles –all built with materials that look great and serve a functional purpose.
If you’re apt to looking at luxury homes on Pinterest or Houzz, you’ve already seen a curved radiator and you may not have even noticed –or maybe you have– because a curved radiator can appear as subtle or as loud as you want them to be.
From celebrity homes to the neighbour next door, curved radiators come in every shape, colour, physical construction material and form factor that your tastes and home heating or cooling requirements demand.
But don’t take our word on it, take a look at curved radiators on Pinterest and seek them out on celebrity home shows –they are everywhere!
