Satin radiators (sometimes also referred to as brushed radiators) are very popular right now with Trade Radiators customers. The unique finish that can be achieved from satin radiators is sleek, easy to look after and brings something extra to any room.
When you’re looking for a radiator that would be seen as a modern upgrade to an old convector you have in a room, or you want a radiator that can perform to a high standard while looking great, satin radiators might be the right type for you. Check out the range we currently have available at Trade Radiators and see if a satin radiator is a right fit for your space.
What Makes Satin Radiators Different?
Satin is seen as a mid-sheen finish for those who are looking for something between a dull slate finish and the sheen of a highly polished radiator. Customers will choose satin when they want a smooth finish on a radiator that gives off a slight sheen so as not to completely dull down the wall it is installed against.
Are Satin and Matte Radiators the Same?
No. With satin having a brushed finish, you’re going to get a nice look when light reflects off it. If you didn’t want that, you would be looking for a radiator with a completely matte finish.
For anyone interested in matte radiators, we’d suggest having a look at our bespoke coloured radiators, where you’ll be able to get anything from a pink bathroom radiator to orange column radiator done in a matte style.
Satin Horizontal Radiators
We find that satin horizontal radiators look best when installed against neutral walls. When you have a larger space like an office boardroom or waiting room, satin finishes help add a little character to the room, especially as some of the horizontal radiators within the range can come as tall as 400mm-500mm.
If you’re aiming to get one of these radiators for a space at home, make sure to measure out the wall space you have. The Apollo Ferrara 300mm x 1000mm Satin Radiator is a great option as well if you’re worried about wall space in a room like your kitchen but still need a good level of heat output from a great looking radiator.
Satin Column Radiators
This specific style of radiator, especially the Apollo Ferrara models, is one of the most sought after satin products we have on site. They are ideal for kitchens, bathrooms and hallways and come with a 25-year guarantee on any purchase.
In houses with an open hallway, we would recommend going for a radiator like the Apollo Ferrara Satin 1800mm x 400mm. It has a tremendous BTU of 5,183, which can help a lot if your hallway has a high ceiling and sometimes feel a little chilly.
How Quickly can I get a Satin Radiator?
With many of the satin radiators on site being designer radiators from top brands, we don’t need to carry out any extra finishing work on your radiator. This means that we’ll be able to get the radiator ready for next working day delivery anywhere on mainland UK.
