The Top 5 Horizontal Designer Radiators of the Year (2018)

The BestHeating.com Horizontal Radiators Of The Year!

2018 was undoubtedly the year of the tall, dark and handsome vertical radiators. But, we simply cannot forget about their shorter, slightly wider, counterparts, horizontal radiators.

Traditional horizontal radiators have come a long way from the bulky uninspiring designs of the 1800s. They now have the ability to transform the look and feel of any living space, regardless of the size of the room or the ceiling height you are working with.

From contemporary minimalist to rustic country, you will find a horizontal radiator to tie together the look you want to create in your home. So, to give these guys the attention they deserve, we’ve put together a round-up of our most loved, best-selling horizontal radiators from last year – inspired by BestHeating’s brilliant customers and Instagram experts.

1 – Milano Windsor – Traditional Horizontal White 3 Column Radiator (300mm x 1013mm)

This stylish radiator is about as old-school as it gets but looks right at home in pretty much any style of interior design. From farmhouse and shabby chic to urban modern décor.

Featuring 22 horizontal triple columns made from tubular mild steel with a clean white finish, this radiator is a real beauty. Full of character with a comforting classic design and outstanding heat output, the Milano Windsor radiates joy and relaxation. Designed to warm your heart, body and soul!

What Do People Say About The Windsor?

 

I’m delighted we ordered this, it was good value, looks so much nicer than bog standard radiator and will hopefully give out a nice amount of heat. Husband is just fitting as we speak but it fits nicely in with our high wooden skirting which is also white. I’ve put it under a console table so it’s not obtrusive but because it has character it would look great anywhere in the room. – Imac – 5 Stars

 

This magnificent device is a veritable capsule of summers long passed. – Thermal Sharkey – 5 Stars

AD | We bought our house 2 years ago and during the first year, amongst the million and one things we wanted to do, we would often consider changing the radiators downstairs but we were always left feeling pretty uninspired every time we looked at designs online. We wanted something modern and we were prepared to choose a bold colour if we found the right ones so when we came across the @bestheatinguk Milano Alpha design our view on rads changed quite a bit! You might have seen on stories how excited we've been to get these up and we are so happy to show you the result! We are really impressed with the quality, look and sleek design. Everyone who has seen them has been so amazed by the fact that radiators can really change the feel and look of a room. Swipe right on the image to see more!
