Where can I find them? It's for a loft conversion. Thank you!

Try Geyser designer radiators. I've had a few from them. Very nice and warm. They have a BTU calculator on their website so you can see what size of radiator you need for your room.

Lovely thanks villager.

I've just been looking at Bisque.

Any other recommendations?

I've used acova from B&Q, give out a good amount of heat and look fine with a smaller price tag than some of the 'designer' brands.

For example:

I quite like the ones with a mirror fitted in them. I have one made with tubes, the Circolo range. They have one of those with a mirror.
I also have one of the old school type ones. Very warm. Think it's called a Tesi.

I like some of the B&Q ones, but am always looking for recommended designer ones too. in other words, shamelessly marking place

My dad swears by Plumb Nation for price. He's been looking at those coated aluminium radiators that you don't paint for me.

Sorry shortlass. Just had a nosey at plumbnation. Not impressed really too be honest.

We have the acova ones (a mixture of the small rectangular ones in some if the bedrooms and the tall narrow column ones in our bedroom and downstairs).

I think they look very modern / contemporary without being too "trendy". They're understated so don't become the focal point of the room. And they really knock out some heat - really pleased with ours.

I got this a couple of months ago for our sitting room.

It may be that you and my dad have a different idea of "style", villager grin

I was just looking to replace those old style iron radiators that look horrible after someone's tried painting them for the third time. Those coated aluminium ones look much better, although there are others which are more stylish, I agree. Although, with a price tag to match.

If I didn't have the rest of the house to refurbish at the time time, I might be looking to spend a bit more on really nice radiators myself.

I bought all ours from soak in a variety of colours (anthracite, black, white) depending on location. They were all bought on a day where there was an extra sale and I got this one for about £115 in the end. Prices keep changing and can get discount codes. They're working well and first heating bill was low so must be efficient!

Don't forget if you buy nice radiators you need to budget for nice valves too.

Stelrad Vita Deco. Very sleek looking and come in a range of sizes, horizontal and veritical. We have them in a 1930s house and they are not out of keeping but would look equally good in a modern property. I would choose them over any of the traditional looking column radiators any day - we have just one in our bathroom and it is a total dust trap. The Vita Deco are much better and also look good painted.

Argh! Painted radiators Shortlass?
The worse thing that people can do to a radiator is paint it.
Viewed a house last year and every radiator had been painted. Put me right off buying the house.

Thank you!

Ha ha, villager grin. Yeah, that's why I want to replace 'em!

Going for undefloor heating down stairs. Until I get the quote back. Then I might have to switch to radiators, but will want nice ones. So this thread might be really useful for me smile.

We bought column rads from Mr Central Heating. They were the cheapest when we were looking.

Hudevad link especially the P5 which is a totally plain flat panel, doesn't even have a grille at the top. Comes in all sorts of sizes incl vertical.

Oh Hudevads are great heaters. Love the P5. Sometimes less is more smile
