Why would you choose a radiator cabinet? It’s a question which reveals a great deal about you, and how you view your home. There is no disguising the fact that stunning bespoke cabinets can add a great deal of visual appeal and elegance to a room, whether that is an old-fashioned traditional country cottage, or a brand-new city centre apartment.
Few people would agree with the idea that plain central heating radiators are attractive or positive feature in a room. But when it comes to actually selecting a bespoke wooden radiator cover there are so many different factors to bear in mind that often it reveals a good deal about an individual as to which is the main reason for choosing a bespoke cabinet in the first place.
For example, for some people the overriding priority is to add to the style and visual appeal of their room, adding perhaps a central feature which will draw the eye, but without being overly dominant. In order to achieve this it is important to choose a bespoke radiator cabinet of the right style.
Dark wood cabinets are ideal for larger rooms, or rooms decorated in a darker style. For modern apartments and houses which may be decorated in a contemporary style then wooden covers in white or cream are often the ideal choice. It is always important of course to consider the style and design as well as the colour, and this ought to include the pattern used in the grill at the front.
But some people are less interested in adding to the room and more interested in taking away. Specifically, the radiator. Clearly it is not appropriate or recommended to simply remove all the radiators from a property, unless of course you’re intending on adding in underfloor heating or an open fireplace in every room.
But since you are often stuck with radiators, and changing them for more stylish ones can be fearfully expensive, a much quicker, simpler and more affordable solution is to look at the range of stunning bespoke cabinets available. By covering up a radiator you are effectively removing something which does not look elegant or appealing at all.
Still others are looking at a more practical advantage, in terms of heating efficiency. There is a great deal of evidence which demonstrates that purchasing bespoke radiator cabinets can significantly lower your heating bill. This is because instead of allowing most of the heat to escape upwards towards the ceiling, it is trapped close to the radiator and then forced out through the grill at the front of the cabinet and into the room.
But here again people differ in their motivation, either thinking predominantly of the fact that they will be saving a significant sum of money, and ultimately recouping the cost of their bespoke cabinet, or of the fact that they will be able to lower the amount of fuel they use, helping in some way to be a little greener and more environmentally friendly.
So if you’re looking at purchasing an elegance bespoke radiator cabinet, ask yourself what your main motivation is, and what that might say about you and about your home.

When selecting a new conservatory there are a variety of different types and styles to choose from. uPVC conservatories are the most common, due to uPVCs relatively easy manufacturing process and flexible form. This offers a great deal of shapes, of which the Victorian and Edwardian styles are two of the most popular in today’s market.
A Victorian uPVC conservatory is one of the most flexible structures and normally has either 3 or 5 sides forming the front of the conservatory, creating a bay window-like appearance. It also has a pitched roof and more ornate ridge detailing. Its look is classic and elegant and its shape is suitable for all types of houses and gardens. Given that the front face is rounded, its shape can work well in both large and smaller gardens or patio areas, where space might be a problem. It also works well in corners and its softer angles make it a great looking accessory to any garden, its classic lines enhancing the exterior of any home. Its classic Victorian era origins can be found in the intricate detailing of the panels, which give a regal feel to the structure, with the ornamental ridges at its peak resembling a crown. From the inside, the round windows give a fantastic panoramic view of the garden.
Alternatively, Edwardian uPVC conservatories are square and flat in their design. Rather than the Victorian style 3/5 pane bay window face, Edwardian style structures generally have 4 flat walls and what they may lack in visual appeal they compensate for in practicality. Without multiple corners and angles the floor space is maximized, letting you place furniture right in the corners to create a more open central space. Because of this excellent use of floor space, Edwardian conservatories are a much more suitable option for smaller structures, or for homes with smaller gardens in which every inch of free space is advantageous. A Victorian bay window may look a bit more pleasing from the outside but can eat in to a patio leaving some dead space due to its angles. Another advantage of its simple floor plan is its adaptability, its straight edges ideal for a dining room or office. Of the 2 options, Edwardian conservatories are most like the existing rooms of your home.
A variant of the Edwardian design is what is known as a double-hipped conservatory. These structures are identical to the traditional Edwardian style, with the only difference being in the roof. Whereas a classic conservatory roof will incline toward the existing property face, meeting at its highest point, the double-hipped variant peaks in the centre, then slopes down again toward the rear and the existing wall. (Creating a pyramid shape) This is particularly useful in properties with upper level windows that might otherwise be compromised by the building of a conservatory, or buildings with height restrictions.
Both designs have their merit and both are very popular choices. Quite often the choice between them comes down solely to the space available to the occupant.
I too have struggled when it comes to purchasing a uPVC conservatory, selecting the type is the last of your worries! I found a lot of the information concerning the Victorian and Edwardian conservatories to be particularly useful in making my decision.

The big obstacle facing anyone looking to enlarge an existing room by adding a new building is the loss of light in the original part. How much of an issue this is will depend on the situation; if the original room is at the corner of the house and has two outside walls with windows, then there will still be a source of natural light if the extension only covers one of the external walls.
However in many situations the remaining window may not allow much light in, particularly if it’s at the side of the building and overshadowed by a neighbouring structure, or it may not exist at all. In this scenario the designer should mitigate this loss of natural light by incorporating a high proportion of glazing into the extension. Read the rest of this entry »
