Summer days are a distant memory and there’s a definite chill in the air developing as the mornings get darker and autumn draws in.

So, to combat those frosty mornings you need to make sure you’ve got the right radiator for your bathroom, to make your Monday mornings that bit more bearable!

So, what are you looking for in a radiator for your bathroom? You need to take into consideration the space available to you, the design and décor – the right combination of functional and stylish. There’s a huge variety of options available these days, so shop around to find one that suits your space.

Radiators come in a range of materials, including cast iron, steel and aluminium. Cast iron is a very traditional choice and would suit a classic bathroom design. It does take a while to warm up but the material retains heat very effectively. Aluminium is the more modern choice, as it is easily shaped and so is often used in the creation of funky designer radiators in more elaborate designs and it is lightweight so can be wall-mounted, making it well suited to a more modern, eclectic style of bathroom.

Choosing a wall-mounted radiator is ideal if you are working with a smaller bathroom space, as you are maximizing the area available to you without taking up valuable floor space and creating a cluttered feeling. You could also go for a wall-mounted towel rail, serving the dual purpose of heating the room and warming up your towels for a toasty treat in the morning. Shiny chrome will fit in seamlessly with most bathroom décor and is always a stylish choice.

If you are working with a larger bathroom spacer, a cast iron radiator can make a really stylish centrepiece for an on-trend bathroom. You could also choose to fit a radiator in a bold colour as an accent piece for a monochrome or white bathroom suite. Just keep in mind that cast iron radiators are heavy so you need to be sure your wall or floors are strong enough to support it.

As you can see, there’s a huge amount of choice available to you when it comes to selecting a radiator for your bathroom, but hopefully we have given you a few ideas to help you make your decision.
