Updated Classics: Painted Radiators

Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics.

Radiator

Classic Pick: Quiet texture. Ensure a radiator blends into its surroundings by painting it the same color as the walls. The overall shape disappears against the background, but the depth and dimension of its vertical structure add architectural interest.

Radiator

Fresh Spin: Bold showpiece. Highlight a cast-iron radiator’s graphic lines by painting it a gutsy, high-contrast color. Against a white wall, an eye-popping shade like fluorescent red takes the rad’s vintage charm in an edgy direction.
