Replacing radiators

I want to replace my old radiators for new style, size is similar but the design will be different.

I have new floors and they are not easily removed without damaging, will this be an issue with existing pipework and access or is there a way of installing and using what is already in place above floor level?

I have an image of the existing pipe work but unable to attach

You can adjust the existing pipes a little to accommodate the new radiators

Depending on the age of the existing radiators they may be measured imperially where new ones are metric, if you don't want to disturb flooring site radiators centrally to existing pipes and repipe horizontally above floor level then vertically into valves this should also allow radiators to stand closer or further away from wall.
