Here at Column Rads we like to keep you in the loop on the hottest home décor trends for the upcoming seasons. Metallics are expected to be one of the biggest favourites by interior designers over the next year. That’s why we thought we’d show you a few of our best-selling metallic finish radiators. These show stopper metallic finished column radiators are perfect for a variety of rooms and decors. Metallics are the hottest trend for 2022, so let's check them out.

Raw Metal Radiators

Our raw metal finish is the best-selling from our designer radiator range and it’s easy to see why. The simple finish reflects the light and colours of the room perfectly. Due to its adaptable nature, it can be seen as modern, sleek, and contemporary or a more classic piece depending on its setting and how it’s situated. It works particularly well with industrial styled rooms. Working perfectly in both modern homes with smaller rooms, like hallways or bathrooms and larger more period properties where it would be more of a feature. Our raw metal finish isn't painted on and the natural weld marks and banding help to make it stand out. This finish complements most of our radiator valve and accessories range too.

Gunmetal Radiators

Our gunmetal colour is a darker toned radiator with a grey metallic finish. This is more subtle than some of our other finishes, which is a fantastic way of introducing a hit of metals into your décor without committing fully. The cool toned colour is very versatile in lighter and darker décor and can be a notable feature on a neutral wall. Keep in mind your floors when picking radiators too, as they can really affect the overall look. This colour, for example, would look better with darker woods and cooler tones in the living room.

Rose Gold Designer Radiators

One of the newer additions, our rose gold radiator is a beautiful tone for a bedroom or bathroom. It is similar to a copper finish, making it extremely trendy and easy to match with a large palette. Dark colours and rose gold go perfectly together as it really highlights the pink, warm tones in the powder coating. If you’re looking for a radiator for a child's room, rose gold also pairs perfectly with more of a bright clashing colour like yellow or green, for a fun but modern look. As always, you can match the colour to a feature wallpaper or accessories and really tie a room together too.
