Measuring for a radiator cabinet can be confusing with internal and external dimensions to consider, as well as randomly positioned radiators.

There aren’t many scenarios we haven’t faced, and it’s very rare we that we can’t find an acceptable solution. Send us a photo of the radiator you are looking to cover to We can advise how the cabinet should be positioned, and the measurements we require.

Our team will mark on the photo the exact measurements we need and return the photo via email.

Assisted Measuring Square

With our assisted measuring square, you can measure up for a radiator cabinet or cover without the need for a measuring tape. If you’re not totally confident with measuring, or you simply don’t have a measuring tape to hand, we have a simple solution. Request one of our assisted measuring reference squares and follow the simple instructions.



Let us take the blame. In the unlikely event that the cabinet we supply doesn’t fit, we will take the responsibility and resolve accordingly. You can order your cabinet via the assisted measuring service with the knowledge you won’t be left with an expensive mistake.


We just require two photos, (four if you need skirting board cut-outs). One photo of the front of the radiator, with the square mounted in the centre, and one from the side. From the front shot our engineers can obtain the required width and height, from the side shot they can obtain the required depth.


If the full radiator is not in shot we won’t be able to confirm the measurements. This is also true for radiators very close to obstructions, such as window sills or in alcoves.


Please make sure the area is clear when you take the picture. Move any items, which may obscure the radiator or the surrounding space. Clear, high-resolution images are essential to be as accurate as possible. This may not be a suitable solution for particularly long cabinets.

Photo 1 Width and Height

Please take a photo of the radiator face on, so we can obtain the width and height required.

Be sure to keep the square flat and central. Your camera should be at the same height as the square.

Assisted radiator cabinet measuring
  1. Make sure any potential obstructions are shown in the photo
  2. The reference square should be in the centre of the photo
  3. The reference square should be in the middle of the shot, you may need to sit low down to take the picture.

Photo 2 Depth

Simply hold the square at the side of the radiator and take a photo for us to obtain the depth required.


Photo 3 Skirting Board Height

Take a photo with the square in front of the skirting board. Be sure to have the camera level with the top of the skirting board.


Photo 4 Skirting Board Depth

Place the spine of a large book against the skirting board. We need a photo showing the size of the gap between the wall and the book.


If you’d rather not order our measuring square, follow the same process with a 30cm (12in) ruler.

"I couldn’t be happier with my mirrored radiator cabinet. The workmanship is fantastic, and it makes my room look bigger. It’s definitely worth the money. The company was great to deal with, and I will definitely be purchasing another one shortly. The cabinet comes carefully packaged to avoid damage in transit. Absolutely first class. Furthermore, the delivery guy called me up and asked me when a convenient time would be for him to deliver the cabinet. As I work all day I asked for as late as possible and he turned up as agreed, on time. Very helpful. Extremely happy all round."

Suzanne Saward

"We've just had 3 radiator covers from John having trawled the internet for months before plucking up the courage to order.

Customer service was professional and speedy, with any questions answered within hours rather than days.

We had 1 really tricky cover but having some advice from John it has turned out beautifully.

Quality of the covers is great, as is the simple installation, and I have to give a shout out to the driver. Really friendly and helpful.

We would definitely recommend John and would like to thank him for helping us finish our home."
