Many of our everyday objects, such as water pipes, radiators and wiring, do not match the interior and even make a repulsive impression on both the landlord and the guest.

Do not despair, there are many options for hiding the central heating battery. People often try to transform existing flaws themselves, and as a result, a new, unique style is obtained. It is only important to know a few rules for working with a box and some fashion trends, and then a positive effect is guaranteed!
Box with decorative screen
You can often find old batteries in the corridors or hallways of old-style houses. This "problem" can be hidden with the help of a decorative perforated box and even adapt the battery for a stand for something, make it a decoration of everyday life (guests often need to look at themselves in the mirror before going out or leave any little things in plain sight).
Idea: you can install a mirror on a pseudo-console and a sconce on the wall on different sides of it. This creates an interesting piece of decor that will impress even the most skeptical critics.
Screen embedded in the surrounding furniture
The radiator can become an obstacle in the arrangement of cabinet furniture along the windows, but this does not mean that the screen cannot be made as if it were a "continuation" of the furniture. You just need to choose a universal type of perforation, and more on that later in the article.
Attention! The holes in the upper part of the screen must be mandatory, as the hot air flow rises upwards, which can create a fire hazard if the duct is not installed correctly.
Applying your design skills will not harm: the battery can be made an extension of the windowsill if it is long enough. In addition, there is an option for making a decorative stable bench.
Fashion trend: decorative perforation
The panel must be perforated to release heated air. Uncomplicated through holes can be lined up into a fancy pattern, ornament. Stars, triangles and other shapes are popular. The screen is made in a color akin to the tone of the walls, and the holes on it are located horizontally or vertically.
The screen is a component of the interior
It is worth recalling that the screen is an integral part of a single style and must match it. Some styles imply a certain color, relief and perforation in the form of something. There are a lot of ideas. For example, if the room is made in an environmentally friendly style, then you can add blotches of wood.
It is important to remember that in addition to the design of the screen, you should also pay attention to the material from which it will be made.
