Designer vertical radiators are becoming more popular for homeowners up and down the nation due to their exceptional heating capacity, refined efficiency, durable designs, and unique features that ensure they are a welcome addition to any home.
Not only do they boast magnificent BTU ratings, but they also offer an aesthetic appeal that’s hard to say no to – all for cost-effective, affordable prices.
There are a variety of designer vertical radiators for all sorts of spaces, and today we’ll be covering some of the most popular vertical designer radiators to hit the market in 2023.
What Is a Vertical Radiator?
A vertical radiator is, in simple terms, a radiator with a vertical height larger than its horizontal length. A radiator’s height and length can vary from slight to huge, but all radiators with a greater height than length are classified as vertical radiators.
What Is a Mirrored Radiator?
A mirrored radiator, otherwise known as a radiator with a mirror, is a specialised type of radiator unit with a mirror built into its design. This allows for the radiator to not only heat a room but provide a mirror for use also.
Are Mirrored Radiators Safe to Use?
Yes. All mirrored radiators that make it to the market have been stress tested very vigorously to ensure that they are safe for use in a domestic environment for extended periods, and they are just as safe as traditional plumbed radiators.
What Are Some Good Vertical Mirror Radiators to Consider?
There are many brands to choose from and companies to shop with. Some great radiators to consider are:

This kind of mirror fits anywhere from the bathroom to the bedroom; both prime spots (if you have the vertical ceiling height) for this type of radiator. Gone are the days of shivering in front of the mirror when you’re getting ready in the morning or after you’ve just stepped free of the bath.
