Clean and beautiful design
We believe in clean and beautiful design and help our customers accomplish that
Our customers live in many different types of houses – new, old ones, big and little ones, none are the same.
There are two things that our customers have in common; their desire to make their home look beautiful and the fact that they are considering or may have chosen cast iron radiators to help them achieve the aesthetic ambience desired.
There used to be a myth that cast iron radiators are strictly for period style living.
More recently people are starting to understand the Joy of cast iron radiators. Of course, if you’re undertaking a barn conversion or church renovation, then you’re more likely to turn to period radiators for a more original and complimentary feel. That said, this is certainly not the case with the majority of our customers.
Designed To Fit Any Lifestyle
It’s a well-known fact that our customers live busy modern lifestyles and are surrounded by the paraphernalia of modern living. For the most part, our customers’ home and choice of interior design reflect the sophistication of lifestyles they and their friends lead – tasteful, clean, contemporary, convenient – yet unique to them.
We have worked on important national heritage sites such as Leicester cathedral where the emphasis was on radiator conservation. We love doing restoration work but, we are never more excited than when we are helping customers go through the many radiator options. It’s fair to say we often present them with a huge selection of radiator options when they come to us, we love it!!. We help furnish their semi-detached family home, terraced house or professional apartment and yes, we can offer all those different styles and sizes.
Cast iron radiators work on exactly the same principle as modern steel radiators, that is to say, ‘water in and water out’ – with the exception, of course, that our radiators do become part of your most cherished pieces of furniture!.
The other differences between steel and cast iron radiators is that cast iron radiators usually have a larger internal volume. They take a few more minutes to warm up, but this also means that they stay warm well after the boiler has been turned off. They continue to hold heat and keep your room warm even after they have been switched off they are an environmentally friendly way of retaining heat.
All our radiators are finished to fit into modern central heating systems and work with all types of gas central heating boilers.
Of course, we all know that there is a huge aesthetic consideration too.
We can’t tell you what to choose, but we can help you, and whether you choose our salvaged radiators or our new cast iron radiator from our selection, we believe that whatever you choose it will soon become part of your furniture and in time will become an essential part of the decor and feel of your home. We are certain you will admire them for many years, as will your guests.
Although you aren’t likely to pick them up and take them with you when you move. Or maybe you are! they will most definitely add desirability to your home, help it sell and may even add value.
Whilst we cannot advise you on what to choose, we can say that our traditional radiators continue to be enjoyed in all settings. Our customers can attest to that.
