How to Style Your Living Room Around Your Designer Radiators

Wednesday 30 August 2023

If you’re looking to create a cohesive and visually appealing living room, every element of the room plays an important role. You would be surprised at the significance of interior design. 

You can’t just stick a bunch of ‘pretty things’ into a room and hope it’ll look alright, that’s not interior design, that’s an interior disaster. A radiator is often completely overlooked, seen for only its functional purpose rather than as a prospective design feature. 

Here at Lincolnshire Radiators Direct, we’re passionate about helping you explore the possibilities fabulous heating solutions can bring to your home. Let’s dive in and discover how we can help you style your living room around your designer radiator. 


Start by browsing our range of designer radiators and working out which style best suits your home’s aesthetic. Whether you’re looking for something minimalistic, traditional, or contemporary we have something to suit all needs and will be having a look at some of our favorites shortly.   

Fun finishes

Whilst we love a fresh white radiator if you’re looking for something bold and eye-catching our stainless steel, polished chrome, and anthracite radiators really give something a little extra special. 

These colour options demand attention and turn your radiator into a focal point. Opt for a colour that goes well with your current colour scheme unless you’re wanting to completely re-style your living room. 

Keep in fitting with your current design

Wanting to create a harmonious space to kick back and relax, coordinate your radiator with your current furniture. Unless you’re looking to completely revamp your room, in which case ignore this section. 

If you have a modern room with sleek and minimalist furnishings you may want to opt for a contemporary radiator with clean lines. 

However, if you’ve opted for a traditional design with vintage vibes, classic column radiators are going to look much better. 

Radiators are art

Art is subjective and who’s to say radiators can’t be seen as works of art in themselves? Instead of trying to hide away old and drab-looking radiators, invest in stunning designer radiators that will bring any living room to a higher level. 

Arrange furniture to allow your radiator to take center stage. Put artwork or an ornate mirror above your radiator to create a gallery-like effect. This will help to draw attention to the radiator and also make the room more visually appealing. 

Some of our must-have radiators are:

The Anthracite Flat Panel Horizontal Designer Radiator is perfect for contemporary rooms. If your living room boasts neutral tones, pampas grass, and plush cream sofas this radiator offers the perfect contrast. A bold statement piece that looks expensive but won’t break the bank. 

If you don’t want the radiator to stand out too much you could incorporate darker colours into your room with a black coffee table or bold rug.

This Chrome Flat Panel Horizontal Radiator is fun and futuristic. Chrome is a great option for smaller living rooms as the reflective finish gives the illusion of more space. This radiator would look great in any room in the house but especially under a living room window that’s adorned with black/dark curtains. 

The White Oval Panel Horizontal Radiator is still super modern but is slightly softer looking than the flat panel options. Lending it to rooms that are modern but with a traditional edge. 

If you want all the radiators in your home to look uniform but don’t have the budget to change them all at once, opting for a white finish keeps them in fitting. 

If you’ve got a larger room with high ceilings the Black Oval Panel Vertical Radiator is the ideal option. Due to the radiator’s height, it looks best in rooms with plenty of ceiling height. The large surface area is a great way of heating larger rooms. 

Opting for black is a bold choice and really ensures your radiator is the focal point of the room. Striking, sophisticated, and ultra-modern, the perfect addition to a contemporary living room. 

If you love the idea of a black radiator but your home is a little more on the traditional side and you want something to complement your panelling and vintage rugs, this Black Column Radiator is a NEW addition to our column radiator collection and would be perfect for your home.

Embrace the potential of your radiators and transform them from just a functional element to a stylish design feature with these useful tips.
