In the end we decided to keep the existing radiator in our living room as it seemed silly to spend money on something that was going to be hidden behind the sofa. Installing a new radiator in the bay window (where they should ideally be located), was an option we considered, but we decided we’d rather have the floor space (for our Christmas tree for instance), than fill it up. So, to make this fairly unsightly radiator ‘disappear’ we painted it with the oil based ‘Raven Plume’ paint we had bought but not used for the woodwork. Job done.
