The Play home radiator by Jaga is a must. Available in a range of vibrant, playful color combinations for children's room and with durable colorful finishes, these radiators can handle anything your kids will put upon them and will look great for years to come. You can choose from a range of hot hues and these home radiators are eco friendly, featuring Jaga’s low mass, low water content technology, which means they have just one-tenth the weight and water content of standard radiators.

Radiapaneel from Zehnder is a modern wall radiator. This steel radiator is composed of flat pipes that form a continuous heated panel. This method of heating – using flat pipes rather than rounded – is more efficient and produces better heat convection. In addition to being energy-saving and producing large amounts of radiant heat, this flat panel radiator takes up less space in the room than a traditional wall-mounted unit. Further, the aesthetic of this radiator is unobtrusive as it appears more like an artistic element when mounted to the wall.

This towel warmer from Monte Carlo at Designer Radiators is a shiny chrome thing with a very modern look. Towel warmers are becoming more and more popular with home owners and Monte Carlo Heated Towel Rails do just what it says. You turn it on when you enter the bath and by the time you’re done you have a refreshing warm towel waiting for you. Most towel warmers can be kept on 24 hours a day. This contemporary warmer offers shelf space for additional towels and takes up minimal wall space.

A perfect partnership of lines and curves makes the Medusa and Curval contemporary radiators for the house by Irsap something really out of the ordinary. The Medusa radiator is characterized by a circle on an impressive size, filled with gently waving, intersecting lines. Designed by architect Luigi Molinis, this slim steel radiator is made to live sinuously in space. Another modern radiator for a contemporary house, the Curval, uses geometric design in quite a different way.
