How can I hide ugly pipes?
March 25, 2013
We have just had a new boiler fitted and have rather hideous pipes now on show. Our kitchen is tiny and so boxing it off would take up too much work surface space. Can I make a feature of them? Maybe a wine rack? I'd love some outside-the-box ideas please!

How about making some thing looks like a room divider this is gonna be much easier and better looking than playing with them or how about having two big picture frames that are joins together and put calendars art in them hope I helped

OK, so I know space is tight in Europe...but really? They make absolutely no attempt to hide this stuff? Heck there are wiring connections out in the open and that is 220 and a wet area!

Solution? Maybe build a plywood "ell" shaped box with an open back up to the point where they ripped out the tile. Put a cap on it to match the detail at the bottom of the cabinet to the right of the boiler and then put a false door over the boiler to match the cabinets in the rest of the kitchen. The height staggers from the original cabinet line...but any port in a storm!
