Maximise your wall space
Room layout is a key factor when choosing whether to install either horizontal or tall radiators. If your wall space is limited, for whatever reason, vertical radiators are an excellent choice. Being tall and slim, they are ideal if you want to make use of a narrow, ‘dead’ space. They are also a smart option if your room is square, but small.
The easiest way to create more central space is to place your furniture against the walls. However, if much of that wall space is already hosting a traditional horizontal radiator, there’s an obvious problem. Your furniture will absorb a lot of the heat it emits, meaning your room will still feel chilly. Another issue to consider? The heat might even damage your furniture!
Tall radiators are the perfect way to maximise your living space – and potentially reduce your heating bills. So think up, not across, to take full advantage of all possible radiator locations!
If your room is lucky enough to have large floor-to-ceiling windows, make the most of the space in between with a tall radiator such as our Vela flat-panel model. This brand new electric version emits heat consistently and efficiently, reaches optimum temperature fast, and is free from cold spots. It also comes with a stylish, built-in controller that’s easy to use.
