Not sure which colour to choose?

Here at Mr Central Heating, we have a fantastic range of customisable radiators and accessories. However, with hundreds of RAL colours to choose from, where do you even start? We have put together a helpful guide so you can find the perfect designer radiator and accessories to suit you style. Have a think about these questions before you get started.

Do your colours to contrast or match?

Which colours go well together?

Which colours are currently on trend?

Step One: Colour Context

First thing to consider is which room you are renovating. Have an idea of what you want to achieve in this room and how it flows. What's the rooms' purpose, and does it have a focal point? Is there a window in the room? Will you include a feature wall? Once you have an idea of these, you can begin to think about a colour choice.

Step Two: Choose a Colour Starting Point

The next thing you want to consider is colour. If you have too many colours in mind, it can be quite overwhelming. Pick one that you love and build on it from there. Now you can begin to think about your accent colours. Consider whether you want complementary colours or contrasting colour. Do you want a monochrome look, or do you want the colours to pop? Do some research and think about how each colour can affect mood and creativity etc.

Step Three: Create a Mood Board or Two

Creating a mood board will enable you to visualise not only your colour or tonal choices, but your fabric and texture choices too. You can create your own scrapbook mood board with paint/fabric samples etc. Or if you use Pinterest, why not check out our interior design inspiration boards on our Pinterest page.

Step Four: Colour Testing

So now you will want to test out your colour combinations. If you have a colour paint in mind or a wallpaper sample, take it shopping with you so that you can place it alongside any accessories you want to purchase such as cushions, rugs, and throws. Does the adjoining room have a contrasting colour, or might it make your colour choice clash? Will it enhance your colour choice?

Keep in mind RAL colours will look a bit different in paint than on screen. Different lighting can also affect how the tones look. For best results use a RAL colour sample in the room and position of choice to help you decide.

Step Five: Choose your Mr Central Heating Coloured Radiator and Accessories

Whatever designs and colours you have chosen, we can provide a custom-coloured radiator to suit your needs. There is no longer a need to hide your old radiator behind a cover.

All you need to do is choose colour from the RAL Code. We use these to customise the colours of our radiators to suit your needs. Don't forget to style your valves, your pipe tails, and your radiator feet to your new design too.

RAD Step Five

Now all you need to do, is get ordering and renovating! RAL colour orders take a while to arrive depending on many factors so be sure to give it plenty of time before booking in a trades engineer. Don't forget to update us on how they look in their new homes. Share your photos of your new radiators on our website or social media sites.
