Trends: spice up your interior with a dark radiator cover

Sentimo’s most popular colour is RAL 9016, a neutral white that promotes calmness in the home and creates a sense of spaciousness. When placed against a white wall, rooms can look much bigger and brighter. However, a lot can also be done with dark-coloured covers – are you ready to switch it up?!


One way to deepen and intensify your interior is to re-paint the walls a darker shade, but let’s face it – that can be a lot of effort! A Sentimo cover for your radiator could be the perfect alternative. The contrast of a dark cover in a room with light or colourful decorations can have a striking effect.

Depth & atmosphere

Dark colours that provide depth and contrast can add a cosy and welcoming atmosphere to your home, in comparison to ubiquitous light shades, which can sometimes be cold or uninviting. Combining a graphite black metal Sentimo cover (colour RAL 9011) with a soft and woolly white carpet does wonders for the atmosphere of the room.


Before choosing the colour for your radiator cover, make sure you assess how and when light enters your home. If you have large windows facing East, West or South, there will probably be a lot of natural light coming in at all times of day, so a dark Sentimo could look incredible. If the cover is being placed in a room with less space or less natural light, then it may be better to choose a lighter shade for your Sentimo.

Natural colours

Are you still afraid your interior will look too dark? Try a colour variation of brown or grey, such as RAL 7006 or RAL 9007. These colours also create an organic look that goes especially well with colourful flowers and plants.

Dare to combine!

Don’t forget, you can access RAL colour swatches online or at your local DIY store if you’re still unsure about your colour choice.
