    Hi, this is possibly a silly question but here goes... we've had vintage radiators fitted (Rivassa Anthracite) and new copper piping laid under the floorboards. We're about to have antique effect brushed nikel Thermostatic valves fitted to complete the look. However, the valves will fit to the copper piping sticking out the floor and we assume that a section of the copper pipe will be showing? So we're concerned that will ruin the whole vintage antique look of the radiator. What do people do? Should we be asking the heating guys to fit something additional to connect with the copper piping at floor level to maintain the look. If so, what? Or do people simply paint the copper pipe? Or are we missing something? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.....

    You'd need to install the third option at the time of doing the pipework to the radiator.
