Decorating Home Around your Radiators

April 23, 2016

Decorating our homes is something that a lot of people do not like doing. One of the reasons for this is that when you have done one room, you feel compelled to do them all that’s why it seems like a never-ending task. No matter what room you are decorating, with a bit of planning, the job can be made much easier, and you can leave your room looking like it has been decorated professionally. One of the important things that many owners tend to neglect is radiators, however ugly and old fashioned they are able to spoil the most perfect decorative scheme.

Decorating Around your Radiator

Having a Plan

The first thing that you will need to do is to decide on a plan for decorating your room. It is also important to decide exactly what it is that you are going to change.

  • Furniture
  • Radiators
  • Painting
  • Wallpaper
  • Flooring

You will need to work out your budget and decide what you can and cannot afford to do, and then work out a plan of what you are going to do. You will also need to decide whether you will do the decorating yourself, or use the services of a professional company.

Give your Room an Overhaul

One thing that many people overlook when redesigning a room is the radiators. Swapping your radiators not only changes the aesthetic appeal of your room, but it can also improve the efficiency of your heating system. The Radiator Factory have a wide selection of different radiators available, to suit all tastes and budget.

You may also wish to consider changing the flooring in your room, whether you have carpet or wood. If you already have a wooden floor, you could always consider introducing a rug, which can change the overall feel of the room.

New furniture is also something that can breathe new life into a room, and can have a dramatic effect on the feel of a place. However, if you do not have the budget to stretch to new furniture, as well as decorating, you can always rearrange the furniture, and maybe even change the colour of your cushions.

Painting and Papering

Painting and wallpapering a room are also excellent ways to transform your room, and it is a task that you can complete yourself if you have the time and patience. To get that truly professional looking finish there are some things that you will need to do, such as papering or painting behind the radiator, making sure you get no paint on the windows, and that no paint is on the floor from painting the skirting boards.

You could replace your radiators as mentioned above, which would allow you to have your room decorated before you install them. Doing this is by far the easiest way to get behind your radiators, other than paying for a professional to do the job for you. For some inspiration on styles of radiators, The Radiator Factory has hundreds of products available in-store and online.

However you decide to decorate your room, with a bit of planning and selective buying, you can completely transform any room in your home for probably a lot less than you think. Pay attention to detail and you can have a room that looks like it has been decorated by a professional.
