The Warehouse Home interior design studio creates original vintage and industrial style schemes for residential and commercial spaces. When working with new clients on their home renovation projects, our design team usually starts by exploring key themes integral to the success of the project. Lighting is often one of those themes, but the scale of the space is important too, especially when it comes to the question of heating. A universal challenge for any homeowner, but when it comes to an industrial conversion where the space often involves open plan areas, high ceilings, mezzanine levels, and original windows, the question of heating the space efficiently can be infinitely more challenging. Here, in partnership with our friends at Bisque, our design team shares insight into selecting the right radiator for the right space.
Oozing with old school charm, the Classic radiator has an enduring appeal. And with optimal heat output, it is the perfect companion for a wide range of interiors. The Classic radiator is precision laser welded to give a high-quality finish. But we think the unpainted surface looks pretty stylish too. Featured here (above) with lacquered bare metal finish, the Classic radiator is available in over 200 colours and sizes making it an ideal solution to the irregular shapes common among warehouse homes.
Flow form (left) is an ideal choice for achieving that industrial look. Inspired by an industrial heating element, Flow Form’s spiral fin was designed for technical efficiency - it increases the surface area of the radiator and allows hot air to rise through the gills, thereby maximising the heat output. It is designed to be floor mounted to it requires no wall space and can even be used in front of floor to ceiling windows. The matt black finish is particularly striking and works well in a variety of interior styles.
And finally, if you're searching for a radiator that really delivers on that wow-factor moment we can't look past the Arteplano model in acid-etched copper or brass (below). Because of the process used, each model is totally unique and allows you to have a completely exclusive design. This isn’t a purely functional and practical radiator. This is a style statement.
