Show of hands — who absolutely adores their clunky, obstructing radiator? …That’s what we thought. While a necessity for any home heating system with a boiler, they can also be quite an eyesore. Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to make your radiator blend in a bit better with a fresh coat of paint.
Be Matchy! The easiest way to hide your radiator is by camouflaging it right into the existing wall. We bet you probably have some leftover paint from the last time you spruced up the living room with a fresh coat. Make good use of it and slap it on your radiator for a seamless look.
Go Natural! Perhaps your walls are bright pink or deep green — we wouldn’t blame you for not jumping at the chance to paint your radiator to follow suit. In that case, get back to basics with a neutral paint color. Toning down that metallic gray with a soft, matte gray can make all the difference.
Stand Out! Okay, we know we said we would be camouflaging, but not everyone prefers to live in the shadows. To those of you who’d like to celebrate the presence of your radiator rather than regarding it as an eyesore, we salute you! Paint your radiator with a bright pop of color, or if you’ve really got your creative juices flowing, paint a fun pattern or design.
No matter how you choose to display your radiator, one thing is for certain — it can look as sleek and stylish as possible and will still serve no purpose if it’s not producing heat! That’s why it’s so important to give your HVAC system a seasonal check-up before the brunt of the cold weather hits.
