Radiator Cover FAQs

Our radiator covers are specially-designed to ensure that the heat output from your heaters remains efficient. Because of the materials chosen to create our cabinets and the designs themselves, there is plenty of airflow to allow heat to efficiently warm your space.

At Radiator Cabinets UK, the best radiator covers are well-made, well-designed and custom to your space. This is exactly how we work. Every home has its own aesthetic and style. Your radiator covers shouldn’t be any different. This is exactly why we offer a bespoke service so that you are able to cover your heaters with something that adds value to your space.

When you’re looking for the best radiator covers for your home, consider the overall style of your space. Do you want your cover to stand out as a piece of statement furniture or subtly blend into the rest of your interior design? Whichever direction you choose, we can help.

Our customers tend to add radiator covers to their homes for two key reasons:

• They look great. Radiator covers are a fantastic way to quickly and stylishly cover unattractive radiators that need to stay put for central heating. Radiators can look cold and sharp and at worst, they can get rusty and tired. A radiator cover solves this problem while adding a beautiful piece of use furniture to your space.

• Safety. Many households with children don’t want the danger of metal, sharp and hot radiators that are easily accessible to little ones. Radiator covers allow you to keep your home warm, while making the area child-friendly and covers sharp edges and hot pipes and surfaces.

One misconception about radiator covers is that they are potentially dangerous. It can be assumed that by covering a heat source there is the risk of over-heating the furniture. However, our radiator covers are designed specifically to be placed over a heat source. The design and materials are selected to ensure absolute safety and, in-fact, an exposed very hot radiator can be much more dangerous than a safely covered one.
