Out of sight : how to hide away domestic boilers

You often have to install water heaters, gas and water meters or other unesthetic appliances at home that don’t fit in your stylish kitchen. However, it is quite possible to cover them with some decorations or hide into the furniture.

A gas boiler can be easily hidden in a kitchen cabinet, and pipes — in a decorative case. The only rule that you have to follow — keep the gaps between the boiler and the furniture. This device gets very hot and there must be enough of circulating air to cool the boiler and ensure fire safety. Gaps should be at least 10 cm. It is better to make mesh cabinet doors, no bottom and a big gap on the top.

Meters are much easier to hide. There is no need to leave some free space, they can fit in any decorations. The main thing is to keep a convenient access to their indicators.

It happens that there is no possibility to hide or cover the boiler, then designers often use drawings on it as decorations. You can use heat-resistant film with a pattern or to call a painter who will apply the desirable drawing.
