Rustic kitchen

 

The modern person today agrees that without a boiler, life would be very convenient. We need hot water – and most of the time, the boiler is out go to. This is because the boiler installation cost is much lower than your average full-house heating system.

The problem is that boilers were made to be functional, not pretty – so we’re left staring at this unsightly box-shaped thing sticking to out walls. So what can we do in order to hide it?

Well, it’s simpler than you thought. You just have to be creative. Here are some tips for you:

 

Hide It Behind a Curtain

 When you need to save some money, there is a very simple method that will help you out – and it won’t cost you a small fortune either. All you have to do it attach a shower pole in front of the boiler – or, why not, built it around the unit.

The advantage is that there are countless pretty curtain models out there – and you can easily pick out a pattern that goes well with the room design. Plus, if you have room to spare behind the curtain, you can easily use it to store other items.

Build a Cupboard Around It

Regardless if you buy the cupboard or build it yourself, this is the standard option that many people seem to go for. After all, it is more aesthetically pleasant to look at a cupboard than a boiler.

Little will your guests know what is hidden inside that cupboard. Cups? The entrance to Narnia? No, it’s just a boiler – but no one will know.

DIY Chalkboard Cover

If you are the artsy type, you might not like having the standard wood cupboard around your boiler. For you, it will look just boring – and always the same. A good way to fix that is to build a cupboard – but using chalkboard instead of wood panels. This way, you can draw whatever you want on the surface and make it look pretty.

Box the Pipes Up

Sometimes, you may not need to hide the whole boiler. Its typically square shape can easily be blended into the background – particularly if you plaster some nice stickers on it.

It’s the pipes underneath that are generally most troublesome. To get a cleaner look, you can look for (or build) a case that will wrap just around the pipe work. However, for safety reasons, make sure you leave enough space for ventilation.

Custom Mirror Cupboard

Boilers take a lot of space – so chances are, your room looks pretty small now. To give the impression of ore space, you can build a regular wooden frame around the boiler – and then use mirror for panels. Not only will this create more light in the room, but it will also give the impression of a bigger open space.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, it shouldn’t take fortunes to hide a boiler. All you need is to know the ventilation requirements – and then you can let your creativity loose.
