Make a Statement with Column Rads Designer Radiators

2020 is set to be the year of the jewel tone colour palette, as rich wall colours create some added opulence to any space. Column Rads has some great options to either compliment a living space or be a statement piece with our designer radiators. No need for an interior designer, instead we’re going to show you how to make the most of these darker hues and incorporate some colour, even if you don’t want to go all out.

1. Add a statement piece

If you don’t want to commit to something too daunting, adding a statement chair or sofa can really make a difference to a room. That pop of colour also allows you to alter the décor at a much cheaper price than a total redecoration. Although not widely considered, radiators can also be considered a statement piece. You can keep the colours relatively neutral or add a splash of colour.  These look especially lovely in smaller rooms where maybe huge amounts of a darker tone might be too much.

2. Paint a feature wall to match your designer radiator

If you love the idea of a cosy, warm space with deeper colours and plush furniture but you’re a bit worried about it feeling like a cave… this is a great option. By painting one feature wall a darker colour such as a navy or a forest green, you get the opulence of a jewel tone without the risk of a dark and dingy room. Also, it’s much easier to cover up if you decide that it’s not for you – simple! A great tip if you still want the room to look large is adding other feature items to the painted wall, such as one of our lovely radiators with a gallery wall or large mirror, as it makes it the focal point but doesn’t close off the space. A mirror can reflect light giving the impression that the room is bigger.

3. Think outside the box

These tones might be a little bit overwhelming for those of us that like a nice shade of beige, but they really can lift an entire room and make a big difference to the feel of your home. You don’t have to go wild with the more controversial colour schemes such as mustard or plum – even a dark grey, black or silver can be a great addition. If you’re not sure what might work for your home decor, remember Column Rads has a sample ordering service where you can order as many as you like and claim the money back when you purchase. It’s a good idea to take a look at different colours in the room you’re planning on placing the radiators as lighting and upholstery can all have an impact on the tone of the shade.

Why not take a look at our entire range to get a feel of what might be right for your own home, whether dark and opulent or neutral and clean – we’ve got them all.
Don't forget to share photos of your new radiators on our website or social media sites.
