It’s a new year and that means you might be looking to make some changes in your home. One change you might think of is updating your kitchen. One part that is often forgotten about is the heating. If you were to buy a radiator, most people would be thinking of their bedroom or living room. But upgrading your kitchen heating can instantly uplift the room, so here are the best kitchen heating options in 2022.
Kitchen Heating Systems
Plinth heaters can be perfect for those with less wall space in the kitchen. They’re placed underneath cupboards and can be fitted to your central heating and work alongside it or be electric only. If you’re going for a certain style in your kitchen and don’t want to distract from the existing appliances, plinth heaters can fit snugly into the space without drawing attention. This way you can keep your kitchen nice and warm without compromising on space.
You may want your kitchen heating system to be a focal point of your kitchen and there are plenty of stylish traditional radiators to choose from. If you’re wanting to preserve your kitchen flooring, or want to add a touch of style, this might be the heating solution for you. Radiators can heat an area quickly, so they’re ideal for smaller kitchens as the heat will have less distance to travel. That’s not to say you shouldn’t use a radiator if your kitchen is fairly large. With more space, you can go for a bigger, statement piece and create a kitchen space that’s unique to you.
This type of heating might be previously thought of as a luxury, but it’s now more accessible than ever. Similar to plinth heaters, they can work with your central heating or run purely off electricity and again, don’t take up any space at all. Underfloor heating is hidden from view but provides cozy warmth throughout the room. It might also work best for you if you have a large open-plan kitchen. If you have a radiator at one end of the room, it will take longer for the heat to cover the area. Kitchens with high ceilings may benefit from underfloor heating too because heat gradually rises, giving the room an even temperature.
When choosing a heating system for your kitchen, you’ll want to look at the space you’ve got to work with so you can ensure your selection will bring the warmth you need. These three options allow you to control the temperature too which is important when placing them in rooms like a kitchen. There are already many different appliances at work that give off a fraction of heat, and you’ll want to bring the warmth up and down when needed to make sure you maintain a constant room temperature. With the above options, you also won’t need to worry about ventilation as you would with log burning stoves and such, making them a hassle-free option.
