How to Find the Perfect Radiator for Your Kitchen

Finding the perfect heat source for your kitchen can be overwhelming to say the least.


From cool and contemporary vertical radiators to vintage-inspired column radiators, the amount of choice available can sometimes add to the problem rather than make your decision easy – that’s why we’ve created this simple guide to help you find the perfect kitchen radiator for your home.


Read on to discover a few key points you’ll need to consider when seeking a new kitchen radiator so that you can make an informed decision and pick a design with complete confidence.


How Much Space Do You Have Available?

Kitchen radiators are a must-have in any home, but you don’t want one that’s too big or too small for your space as they can look a little out of place. Before you start your search for the perfect designer radiators for your kitchen, take a look around the room and consider the wall space you have available.


Our kitchens are usually crammed full of cupboards and appliances, so space for a radiator is generally an afterthought. This means you might need to get a bit creative in your quest for the perfect kitchen radiators, especially if you don’t have much space to play with.


A vertical radiator in a kitchen


Vertical heating units offer an ideal solution for kitchens as they are tall and slender enough to be attached to areas where wall space is at a premium. Not only do they look great and come in a wide range of sizes, styles and colours, but they offer amazing levels of heat which is ideal if you only have enough space in the heart of your home for the one kitchen radiator.


Which Décor Style Works Best?

Kitchens come in a wide range of styles, so you’ll need a designer radiator to complement the look that your fitted kitchen offers.


Luckily, leading radiator manufacturers have been hard at work for years creating a wide range of high quality and stylish designer radiators that are ideal for kitchens of any age, style and colour scheme, so you really will be spoilt for choice!


If you’re a fan of the vintage look, then the Reina Coneva offers sleek and simple vertical tubes that scream vintage chic as well as offer an impressive heat output. Available in white, anthracite and RAL colours, this kitchen radiator is made from hard-wearing steel and comes with a five-year guarantee meaning that you’ll enjoy a warm and cosy kitchen space for many years to come.


For lovers of ultra-modern kitchens, the Reina Flat radiator offers sleek panels that are easy to clean and an eye-catching contemporary style to boot! Available in a wide range of sizes and various colours to suit any current kitchen colour scheme, be bold with colour and opt for a vibrant red or yellow radiator or keep things classy and cool with a pale grey or bright white.

How About a Towel Rail?

Not only do kitchen radiators need to look the part, but they also need to be practical too, especially if space is at a premium. With plenty of soggy tea towels that need keeping dry and on hand, you might want to consider a kitchen radiator that comes complete with a built-in towel rail, so you have somewhere to display your favourite towels when visitors arrive.


One of the most popular radiators with a towel rail also looks great in kitchens is the Reina Slimline Vertical, a classic flat panel radiator with the option to add an additional towel rail should you wish.


Available in white, anthracite and a wide range of specialist colours, this is a versatile solution that offers stunning looks and a practical heating source all rolled into one kitchen radiator.


Electric or Mains?

Just because you haven’t got mains gas nearby shouldn’t put you off owning a beautiful designer radiator. Our electric radiators offer an amazing heat source, fantastic looks and only need a nearby power source to keep your kitchen warm, so there’s no need to think that you won’t be able to achieve the kitchen of your dreams because you can’t gain access to the gas mains.


One of our favourite electric heating units to be found gracing the walls of kitchens around the country is the Reina Colona 3 Column, a simplistic design that oozes class and elegance.


Available in eleven different sizes and thermostatic versions, this contemporary classic radiator works well in both traditional and modern kitchens and offers all the convenience of electric with the looks of a mains gas radiator.
