Custom Cabinetry for Your Radiators
The area around your radiator may not look the part now, but with the right custom cabinet, that space can feature versatile and eye-catching furniture. Quality custom built cabinet makers can create built-ins and surrounds that take full advantage of radiators’ typical locations and sizes without interfering with their normal operation. If radiators heat your home, take a look at some of the ways CustomMade artisans have transformed pedestrian radiators into stunning showpieces.
Radiators are often placed beneath large windows, which are ideal places for benches to enjoy the view or display cases to benefit from natural lighting. You can reclaim those prime window spots and still keep your radiators functional. Bob Kissane Woodworking built a radiator bench that matches the look and style of the room, conceals the radiator, and provides heated window seating, too. (Just imagine sipping cocoa while sitting on this warm bench on a snowy winter’s night and watching the tow trucks haul away the cars of people who parked on the wrong side of the street below). Large windows command attention in any room. The custom radiator cover for this cherry living room set by Hudson River Woodworks, LLC, harmonizes with the other pieces in the room and makes a wonderful place to display precious photographs or artworks by the window.
Since radiators generally have shallow profiles, radiator cabinetry can do double duty as hall or side tables, consoles, bookcases, or a combination of these. Hammer Time Studios created this radiator cover with an attached bookcase that also serves as a side table. The star-like pattern and color of the radiator grille complement the room’s floor as well.
Your custom radiator cabinetry can blend in stylistically and functionally with any room. Michael A. Griffin Woodworking made custom radiator covers for various rooms in a historic 19th century home. This fanlight radiator cover converted a hallway radiator into a beautiful hall table with an arch motif design typical of the period’s architecture. Other pieces created for this home included a dark mahogany radiator cover with a marble top for the dining room. All the radiator covers were built to optimize airflow and include heavy-duty grilles and interior reflective insulation.
