What are the best vertical radiators for living rooms?

Your living room is probably the most important room in your house to heat, so choosing the best vertical radiator for your living room is crucial.


After all, it’s probably the room in your house where you spend the most time together with your family, so you want it to feel nice, comfortable, welcoming… and warm.  Fortunately, thanks to rapid advances in both design and technology, the days of simply installing a standard radiator in your living room are long gone. These days, there is a wide variety of designer radiators available to suit your décor, your taste and your heating requirements.

But the best thing is, you are no longer confined to just choosing a horizontal radiator, because there are plenty of high-quality vertical radiators that are perfect for your living room.


Here is our handy guide…

What are vertical radiators?

As the name suggests, a vertical radiator – or tall radiator – has its tubes, columns or panels running vertically (from floor to ceiling) instead of horizontally (from wall to wall).

In general, vertical radiators won’t give out the same heat output as horizontal ones, because they don’t have the same length to draw cold air up for convection that horizontal radiators do. But, depending on the size and shape of the room you are trying to heat, a strategically placed vertical radiator or two may be a better bet than a standard horizontal heater.

This is particularly true in long, narrow spaces where a single, high-output vertical radiator may be the best option, and in larger spaces where horizontal radiators may be blocked by furniture or curtains, which can affect their heating performance. The main advantage that vertical radiators have is that from a design point of view, they are more convenient, flexible and easy to install, helping you to make the most of your available living space. This means that whether you are aiming for contemporary, minimalist or somewhere in between, a vertical radiator can help you create the perfect living room.
