Because of the very restricted space in my kitchen I am installing a
radiator under one of the kitchen cupboards. To let the heat out I
need to install a grill of some sort into the plinth under the
cupboard. Does anyone have any suggestions for a suitable grill? The
dimensions for the grill would be no wider than about 13 cm and no
longer than about 100 cm.
Don't you think the heat might be "a bit" reluctant to fall to the floor
to get out of your grille?
You can get plinth radiators, with fan assistance ...

Andy Burns is right. Heat rises so all that would happen is that the bottom
of your cupboard would be lovely and warm but not much else. Have a look at
That also limits what you can store in that cupboard.
If you install any heating appliance under it, I would consider
trying to put a piece if 25mm cellotex on the underside of the
cupboard bottom, to try and reduce heat input to the cupboard.

Talking of crazy kitchen layouts, did anyone notice on the "challenge"
episode of "The Restaurant" this week ... Raymond Blanc sent the teams to
three posh houses to entertain important guests.
One of the kitchens had a tall unit with a double oven of some kind in it,
but then in the next unit along, under the worktop, there was a bizarre
"microwave at the top, half a cupboard under it" unit. Not sure I'd fancy
