There are components of a home that we cannot ignore, such as bulky radiators, and many people have devised solutions to cover this part of your HVAC and to allow it to be more appealing for the homeowners and their guests.

Fabricate a Cabinet Over It

There are plenty of cabinet designs that you can choose to build over your radiator to hide it. Whether it has perforations or louvered cabinet doors, your radiator must breathe when you enclosed it with a stylish cabinet. 

Prepare a Proper Bathroom Layout

Some radiators take up a lot of space, and often the bathroom suffers because of limited space.

You may have your bathtub installed horizontally against it and paint it with moody gray instead of just plain white to cover the radiator.

You may also have a towel rod to have an accent when you hang your towel beside the radiator.

Cover It

Blend With the Design

You may need the help of professional designers to incorporate your radiator with the design.

Place an Artwork Decoration
