What colour do boilers come in?
A boiler is white. It is a commonly known thing and whether you are living in your first flat or are just unpacking the boxes on yet another house move, the chances are incredibly high that the boiler in your home is white.
But why are boilers white? Why can you not get them in a range of colours?
Well the simple answer is that there is not enough demand for it. Boilers generally stay hidden in a cupboard or in the utility room, loft or basement of a home. Rarely to be seen.
The metal casing needs a protective coating so it needs to be a colour and white is a) cheaper and b) cleaner. If your boiler is on show in the kitchen then a white boiler is far more likely to go with the rest of the kitchen (white has always been of course a popular choice for kitchens) than beige or pink.
There is however a slight change to this. Some brands such as Worcester Bosch are turning up the design level to eleven and incorporating more technology into their boilers than ever before.
Their latest ‘Greenstar 8000’ boiler (for example) is a stunning design-led boiler that is proud to be on display. Available in a choice of high gloss black or white, the Worcester Bosch Boiler is a modern design packed with innovative technology.
Of course, while this is a boiler that deviates from the white of tradition, it has only ventured as far as black as an alternative.
Standard fridges are white. Bath tubs are white. Sinks are white and unless you go for higher spec options to customise the design of your kitchen of bathroom, white is the default. When it comes to the colour of a boiler. There simply isn’t the demand yet to have boilers available in a range of colours beyond white.
