Yes, a nice radiator…
The humble radiator… so functional, so essential… but not always particularly attractive. But that doesn’t have to be that way. Radiators can be beautiful objects too! As a plumber’s daughter, to me a nice cast iron radiator with a good-old copper pipe connection is a thing of beauty that can be a focal point if done right.
Cast iron radiators now fetch a pretty penny on auction sites and the reclaim companies have cottoned on to our new found love for them. A nice radiator can change the feel of the room. Stripping out the boring conventional 1990’s radiator and installing a cast iron one, or even a nice modern bar radiator, can make an instant impact to your room.
Some people have made focal points from nice radiators, making them jump out of the wall at your with bright or contrasting colours or just getting something that little bit different. The effect can be fantastic!
