Radiator trends – Old meets new

In radiator-land, the latest trend is to combine contemporary radiators with traditional homes.

Mixing the old with the new, ask any interiors professional: It's one of the trickiest balancing acts in the business, but opting for a contemporary radiator in a traditional setting can be a simple way of achieving this look.

The XL radiator in chrome pictured in a hallway is a perfect example of the delicate old/new balance. While the floor is Yorkshire stone flags and the plaster is the original in plain white, the radiator is in highly polished chrome to completely contrast with its surroundings. The rough floor adds an organic contrast to the metallic shine and the rustic solidity of the floor works well with the chunky style and sharp edges of the radiator.

An ultra-modern radiator could immediately be assumed to out of place in a French chateau for instance, but by considering the finish of the radiator alongside the tones of any art or furniture in a room, you can create a highly sophisticated look.

By providing old nuances in rooms that are modern and new references in rooms biased towards the past, you can achieve a balance, rather than a divide, between the old and the new.
