Nothing we love more than an Apartment Therapy Roundup packed with tips! Sarah over at AT Boston helps us all hide that unsightly climate-control tech.
Thermostats, radiators and air conditioning units can be the toughest tech to hide, mainly because you have to keep them out in the open to work effectively. Thermostats need to read an accurate temperature and radiators and A/C units need to blast air your way.
Thankfully, AT Boston rounded up some helpful tips for "hiding" them:
- Paint it the same color as the wall to keep it from standing out, like in the first image, from Maxime Masters a Rental.
- Decorate it with framing features (like shelves) and stencils like in the second image, from Chris and Hannah's loft.
- Hide it in plain sight by surrounding it with distracting photo frames, like in the photo wall from image 3.
- Box it up in a custom-made cover, but remember to let the air flow! Check out the Ikea Hacked landing strip from image 4 or another Ikea Hacked hinged mirror in image 5.
