Are Radiators Covers a good idea?
Radiator covers are not recommended, even a purpose built piece of furniture. Radiators produce both radiant and convective heat. It is the radiant effect that you feel when standing in front of the radiator and convected heat which circulates warm air around the room. Covering the radiator will mean neither can occur efficiently. With the increasing choice of radiator styles and finishes, they can now become not only integrated in the ambience of the room but become a design feature in their own right.
