How to Find the Perfect Radiator Cover

Radiator covers come in many different styles and sizes, so choosing the right one for your home can be difficult and confusing. By thinking through your decision you can find the best possible radiator cover, adding to your home rather than detracting from its decor. With this guide you’ll be able to find the ideal one.

Measure Your Radiators

The first step to choosing the right cover for your radiators is to measure them. If you don’t measure them, then you risk getting one that will be too small to go over your radiator. You’ll want to make sure to allow for a gap of at least 3cm all around to prevent the cover getting too close in contact with the radiator. This means measuring the width, depth, and height of your radiator, then adding 3cm to each of these measurements, and the resulting dimensions are what you will use to find the right cover size to suit. Remember, you need check these against the inner dimensions of the radiator cover to make sure it will fit.

Find One That Fits Your Decor

Taking into account your current decor is the second step to matching up the cabinet with the rest of your décor. If your room has a lot of lines then the vertical or horizontal grill radiator cover may fit it best, whereas if it has diamond patterns then the lattice cover would be a complementary style. Alternatively, you may want to choose a panel style that’s opposite to the dominant pattern in your space, in order to create a fun and eye-catching decorative contrast. You should always envision the cover in whichever room you have allocated for it, making sure that it’s the style you want to see there.

Select the Right Colour

Going for the wrong colour could detract from your home, making it stand out like a sore thumb rather than complimenting what’s already there. If your decor is very colourful then a white radiator cover may not fit in. Luckily, our unfinished covers allow you to customise the finished colour which enables you to match it perfectly to any existing hues in your home. On the other hand, a bright but fairly monotone style would be completed nicely with either a grey or white cover, depending on the chosen monotone colour of your home.
