If you want to safely cover up an ugly radiator, then there are many attractive models currently on the market. With a range of colours and styles available, you should be able to find one that will blend in with your room’s décor. However, this is not the only advantage of having a radiator cover as it gives protection from the hot radiator surface. Very handy if you have children!
