While radiators serve a practical purpose, they can detract from a room’s aesthetic appeal. If you are looking for a way to cover up an ugly radiator, then consider a custom radiator cover. Custom radiator covers have been manufactured with design in mind, so that you can cover up your radiator in style.
Not only are radiators less than attractive, some radiators can also be extremely hot. When it comes to keeping children and pets safe, it’s best to cover a radiator in order to reduce the amount of heat that a radiator emits -- and to limit who can access that heat.
There is a wide variety of custom radiator covers available to match almost any decor. For a personalized cover, you may want to contact a local cabinetmaker, since many of these artisans can craft special radiator covers.
How to Buy Custom Radiator Covers
When shopping for custom radiator covers, keep the size and height of your radiator in mind. You’ll discover that some local companies make house calls in order to measure your radiator, but ordering custom radiator covers from afar means measuring your radiator on your own.
For accurate dimensions, use a tape measure to find:
- the height of your radiator from floor to top
- the width from side to side
- the depth from front to back.
Make sure to speak with a manufacturer about the specific size of your radiator prior to purchasing any radiator cover.
Since custom radiator covers are quickly becoming popular, designer radiator covers are now available around the globe. Of course, these custom radiator covers tend to be more expensive than others, but the price may be worth it if you are trying to match your radiator to a uniquely designed room.
Also, look for custom radiator covers that include a flat top surface – it never hurts to have some extra shelf space! While custom radiator covers may seem expensive at first, they are a great investment. After all, who wants to look at old, chipped and stained radiators?
