Remember that your bedroom radiator needs to breathe. If it’s hampered by heavy, floor-length curtains, for example, it won’t be able to heat your room properly. And if you have a convector radiator, even mid-length curtains will restrict the heat output. So think hard about curtains and upholstery before you decide on your radiator location.
Many people think that their existing pipework automatically dictates the position of their bedroom radiator. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. If what you have really doesn’t work for you, change it! Don’t be afraid to explore all possible pipework options. Modifying this could free up valuable floor and wall space, and make your bedroom easier and more economical to heat.
Another option worth investigating is electric. Electric bedroom radiators have many advantages. Firstly, they are fast and easy to install, and involve minimal maintenance/servicing. Secondly, each electric radiator can work independently. So they offer a lot of flexibility and control over individual room temperatures and energy usage. Electric radiators are also extremely efficient, as 100% of the electricity you use is converted directly into heat.
