Glass Radiator Covers – Advantages and Disadvantages

When talking about glass radiator covers, it can be said that they have almost the same advantages as any other radiator covers. They are designed to be aesthetically pleasing and stylish, maybe even more than wooden radiator covers, for instance. Also, they act as a protective shield between the radiator and the surroundings, meaning that they ensure the safety of children and pets. They also make sure that no dust reaches the radiator itself, because radiators are very hard to clean, unlike the smooth surfaces of glass radiator covers.

However, there is one clear disadvantage of glass radiator covers. This is the fact that these radiator covers do not act as storage places because they cannot be fitted with drawers. Glass radiator covers are rather used for adding style to the room, rather than some extra room to store books or other objects.
