How to decorate around radiators

I love old homes and all their charms and quirks. One of these charms is usually an old radiator or other appliance that may pose a decorating "challenge." Personally, I think these quirks are worth the unique feel of an old home, and these days you can even find super sleek, well-designed radiators if that is your home or building's method of providing heat.

 I was actually surprised to find out how stylish some of these electric radiators are - see below:




These radiators look more like modern art!  These I found on Electric Radiators Direct.   They also don't stain or blacken walls. In my book the best thing about these radiators is that they are also very energy efficient.

Even though there are ways to decorate around old clunky radiators, like building boxes and covers, there's always the concern of decreasing efficiency or damaging materials.


Above and below show radiators with custom covers built around them.  If you are renting and aren't able to choose your own radiators, they can be good solutions.

Great post, radiators can be a pain, but like you have said, there are things you can do about them. Those modern radiators do look a lot less intrusive on the room unlike more traditional one, but like you have said it is possible to cover up radiators with radiator cabinets and they can also create an extra element to the room, and they can also be decorated to fit in with the room.
