There’s no doubt about it – radiators are a means to an end. We love keeping warm and cosy but, even with our very stylish designer electric heaters, radiators probably aren’t your first choice for wall decoration. We want to fill our walls with photographs, pictures, book shelves, or electrical entertainment gadgets – with the little mementos that put our personal stamp on our homes, or the fun-filled entertainment equipment that keeps us busy in the evenings and weekends. We also want to maximise space within the room to allow our kids to run around, to fit in all the furniture we need and move around comfortably without tripping over our possessions. To be able to fully maximise the space potential of our homes, whilst keeping warm and comfortable through the year, we need slim wall mounted radiators that are as compact as possible. At Electric Radiators Direct you’ll find a wide range of slim line electric radiators, heaters and towel rails that offer space-saving heating solutions to the most awkward of narrow, cramped spaces. Check out some of tricky locations we’ve been able to heat with slimline electric heaters…
If you’re looking to heat a child’s bedroom, nursery or playroom, slim line heaters are a must if you want to maximise their space to play. You’ll also need heaters which are durable, tamper proof and free of sharp edges – to minimise the damage from those inevitable little accidents! The Haverland Designer RC Wave Electric Radiator range makes a great choice for children’s rooms. With a depth of only 7.4cms, the ultra slim radiator body leaves plenty of space for active antics and playful pastimes – whilst the smooth contemporary design with no sharp edges minimises the potential for injury.
2 – Bathrooms, Wash Rooms & Shower Rooms
Bathrooms are often some of the smallest rooms in the house, with a small corridor of space to navigate between the bath, sink and toilet. Slimline electric towel rails can be an excellent energy efficient solution. The Fina-E by Ecostrad has a slender depth of just 30mm and comes with thermostatic control so you can adjust the temperature of your bathroom with ease!
An unobstructed walkway is an essential requirement of any corridor – especially when it takes a high volume of traffic in locations such as offices, schools and flats. Slim line electric radiators are appropriate choices for small corridors in homes, and may also be suitable in corridors with convenient alcoves for protected fitting. However the best space-saving choice for commercial corridors is infrared panels – energy efficient heaters which provide directed heat from an ultra slimline panel only 2.5cms deep. Slim line infrared panels can also be mounted on the ceiling – a great way to maximise space in your corridors.
4 – Caravans, Boats & Mobile Homes
Nowhere is space-saving more essential than in a mobile home – whether your ambulatory abode travels the country roads or the quiet canals! River cruisers, barges and canal boats are very similar to caravans, campervans and motorhomes in that living space is always at a premium – so slim line heaters are a must. Mobile homes are another location where ceiling mounted infrared panels are an ideal choice. The energy efficiency of infrared panels is an added boon in caravans and boats because they make the best use of often limited power supplies.
5 – Awkward Alcoves in Period Properties
It’s not only small rooms which require slim line heaters – traditionally styled properties with difficult alcoves, original wall mouldings and period details may have few large wall spaces in which to mount a radiator. Owners of period properties commonly prefer tall, narrow radiators to fit between alcoves. The Ecostrad Ecowärme fits the bill perfectly, with efficient ceramic heating plates that provide energy efficient warmth even in high-ceilinged period properties.
