Now that the nights are drawing in and the weather has left summer well and truly behind, it's time to turn our thoughts to heating our houses as beautifully as possible.
Yes, we need warmth. Yes, we need radiators. But please don't feel that you need to put up with this: the ugly radiator.
At Relics of Witney, we supply beautiful, well-made radiator covers, manufactured from sturdy MDF that doesn't warp or crack from heat or sudden temperature changes, and which are extremely good value for money.
Radiator cabinets create the perfect solution to a necessary eyesore: for example, by providing a stylish console table effect in a narrow hallway. Ours can be made to suit any tricky situation from small alcoves to large bay windows.
Thanks to their specially designed vents and plinths, they actually IMPROVE heat circulation from the radiator. The front grille panel is attached using strong magnetic catches that allow easy access to the radiator and valves.
The design process is extremely easy. You will be able to choose from a range of styles and grille pattern, from Classic, Ethnic or Contemporary, as well as determining the exact height and width, to produce a radiator cabinet that perfectly complements your home. We are, of course, more than happy to help if you would like any guidance through the process.
Your radiator cover will arrive flat-packed but we ensure that all difficult carpentry has been completed by this stage. All that is left to do is a very simple assembly job, using the bolts and screw fittings supplied, and then to paint in situ using the colour and finish of your choice. See our website for more information on the best way to paint your cabinet.
And, of course, to thoroughly enjoy the look of your new purchase.
Next week.....creating the perfect hearth.
