It’s hard to think about heating if you’re looking forward to summer but if you’re fitting a new kitchen, considering how you heat it is vital.
Underfloor heating is a fantastic option but pipes usually need to be fitted as part of a whole floor renovation, while electric mats can be pricey to run. The solution most of us choose is a radiator.
As I discovered when I revamped my home, the choice is huge, ranging from blocky white basic models to sleek designer ones. And that was before I even got into how much heat they produce, which is displayed in btu (British thermal unit).
If only Bisque‘s free iPad app had been around to help me!
Use Bisque’s new app to see products in different colours and finishes
Not only does it show all its radiators in a variety of colours, there’s also a service to send you colour or finish samples at home.
It even has a heat loss calculator, so you can work out how many watts you need, plus suggestions for which radiators work best for that room. Just fill in the size of your room, wall type, windows and any variations.
