Whether you’re turning your radiator into an eye-catching feature, blending it seamlessly with your wall colour, or simply providing a much-needed refresh, read on to discover the colour best suited to your interior style.

Bold statements  

The latest radiator colour trends range from making a statement to seamless camouflage. Painting your radiator a bold, vibrant colour that contrasts a light or neutral backdrop is great for transforming an otherwise faceless feature into a striking accent. Moreover, choosing two colours that complement each other like blue and orange, purple and yellow or red and green creates a bold and dynamic contrast that’s pleasing to the eye.


For a layering effect, match your radiator with décor of the same colour in varying shades to add texture and depth to a room.


Blend seamlessly 

Another popular choice is painting your radiators to match the walls -and with our Wall and Ceiling Paint this has never been easier! Available in the same 100+ stylish shades as our Radiator Paint, preserve a room’s harmony and flow by painting the radiator and wall the same colour. 


This technique works exceptionally well with darker colours like Blueprint or Black Sand, as the harsh outline of a fixture becomes harder to spot. Pairning with a similar toned wallpaper, curtains and accessories can also create this seamless effect. 

Repainting radiators  

Sometimes a radiator touch up is all that’s required, and with Rust-Oleum Radiator Paint you can apply directly over previously primed and painted surfaces.


Go for a classic like Chalk White to instantly refresh radiators that are yellowed or worn, or for efficiency choose a dark grey like Graphite to absorb the most heat.
