When we think of designer radiators it’s easy for our imaginations to stray into over the top pseudo arty and loud colours that pull the eye whether they want to be pulled or not. But what if there was more to the designer radiator? The mirrored radiator is an example of how you can bring more to the home with your designer radiator, and with no hindrance to your property’s energy efficiency.
There are plenty of radiators out there to choose from for your home, especially if you decide to go designer, and so homing in your options and needs will make your purchase that little bit easier. This blog gives a lowdown on what a mirrored radiator can offer you, so that you can make sure you’re making the right purchase for your home.
What is a mirrored radiator?
Ba mirrored radiator differs from a mirror finish radiator in that it is not a normal radiator with a reflective coat placed upon it. Whilst this is technically a mirrored radiator, it is “mirrored” after all, a mirror radiator incorporates a mirror into the body of the radiator itself, meaning that it is both a heating unit and a mirror at the same time. Due to the sizes of our everyday mirror, most are vertical radiators in design and create a full body reflective surface, usually reserved for bedrooms and bathrooms.
Benefits of a mirrored radiator
So, what makes mirrored radiators so popular? With so many designs of radiator out there, what is it about a mirrored one that has made it so popular with radiator connoisseurs.
One aspect of the mirror radiator which makes it so enticing, is that it is multifunctional as well as stylish. With great heating incorporated into a crucial accessory in the home, the mirrored radiator is a great value product with which you are basically getting a two for one deal. In the same price bracket as other none reflective designer radiators, the great value nature of this versatile gem means that you’ll get use out of it even when you’re not using it for heating.
One of the main problems with heating the bathroom is that there are often a wide range of other utilities set within it. In the bathroom you are working with a space which is generally smaller than other rooms and has twice the amount of functions. That’s why the two in one deal you get with the mirrored radiator makes it the perfect addition to the smaller bathroom. Pair this with the vertical and often towel rail incorporating functions of the mirrored radiator and you have yourself a practical solution to your bathrooms needs.
More light in your rooms
On the subject of smaller spaces in your home it is a fact that the lighter the room, the more spacious it’ll feel. Mirrored vertical radiators paired with either natural or artificial light will bring more shine into the room due to the reflective surfaces. The more spacious a room feels, the more relaxed and comfortable it’ll be.
Flexible heat outputs
One of the other benefits of a mirrored vertical radiator is that these units are often flexible in their heat output. Due to the sporadic temperature changes in the bathroom, you will find that many, including mirror radiators, can be bought in dual fuel and electric heat options. This will help you save even more on your energy bills, as with a mirrored wall mounted electric radiator could change the aesthetic and efficiency of your home in just one easy installation.
