Our Favourite 7 Column Radiators

Choosing the right radiator for your home can be a bit of a challenge. But it's a decision made infinitely easier by our comprehensive knowledge list of the best designer column radiators.

Why is Column the One?

Column radiators are enjoying a revival as one of the most popular types of radiator purchased by home heating renovators, and for good reason.

Whilst traditionally radiators exhibit one or two continual horizontal panels through which they could disperse heat, column radiators are comprised of multiple heating columns that each distribute heat. The result is less wasted framework and a far more utilised heat dispersal. The columns are also what give this variant of radiators their name, if you weren’t paying attention!

Column radiators are known for providing a superior BTU output per area. They are also rather stylish, harking back to traditional radiator designs yet with modern technology to perfectly suit and efficiently heat all manner of interior styles.

This model is also available in a wonderfully dynamic shade of anthracite, making it the perfect addition to modern interiors seeking that space age accent.
