How do I Fit a Bespoke Radiator Cabinet?

Radiator cabinet with drawers

It’s a bit of a given that radiators are a necessity for keeping the house warm. If you have ever had to deal with a broken boiler in the middle of winter, or experienced student life, you will be very aware of this. The only catch is that despite radiators playing an important role in our home, they don’t look that good. Luckily, you can easily keep them covered with a bespoke radiator cabinet.

Bespoke Radiator Cabinets for your Home

Radiator cabinets are fantastic. Not only do they come with the assurance that your pets and children are safe from the hot metal, but they can transform your standard, eyesore of a radiator into a piece of furniture that completes the room.

Having a group of design experts to fit bespoke radiator cabinets into your home is ideal if you want an accurate fit that is suitable for you. However, it is never a bad idea to do a bit of measuring to see what kind of size you could be looking at! Here, we explain how to measure the space around your radiators.

Measuring the Radiator Space

Radiators come in a wonderful range of shapes and sizes. With so many varieties out there, it can seem difficult to know where to start. Ideally, you should begin by measuring the size of your radiator. Many modern radiators come in set sizes, but it may be different if your radiator is older. So, grab your tape measure, a pen and some paper, and let’s get started!

Be sure to make a note of:

  • The height from the floor to the top of the radiator
  • The width (including valves or nozzles)
  • The Depth from the front of the radiator to the wall

We then add on the appropriate clearance to all of the dimensions. This will allow for positive air flow back into the room, allowing the radiator to work to it's full potential.
