Boiler MaintenanceAs much as people appreciate the invention of the boiler and the convenience of heating it brings, it's made to be functional rather than pretty and that means it’s big and that hiding it can be necessary. 

If you are one of those people who have the boiler installed in the bedroom and would like to hide its presence in the room, there are certain things you have to consider. 

Fortunately, at we have a handful of nifty ideas one can use to hide an extra boiler in the bedroom and property.

How To Hide A Boiler In Bedroom

Before you begin, there are a couple of important factors you should take into consideration when you are trying to hide the boiler, such as:

  • Which one is more important to you; practicality or style? 
  • Would you like to focus on hiding the boiler in the room while improving the style of your bedroom
  • Or would you like to focus on practicality to ensure that you can still get to it with ease, especially when there are some issues that need to be solved?
  • How much space you have: Do you have enough space for concealing its visibility?
  • How much can you spend on it? After all, it is crucial to avoid leaving yourself out of pocket. 

Creative Ways to Hide a Boiler

1. Create A Cupboard

At first, you may find this process burdensome, but creating the cupboard for the boiler is actually much easier than you think. To do this, create the cupboard door by using solid wood or MDF.

In case you are unsure where to start, look into local handymen or carpenters and do not defer. Creating a plain cupboard can be an affordable option for many, and it will fit into the bedroom easily. Then, you can even try fitting a door to match the bedroom if you choose to do so.

2. Use A Curtain

Do you have a small curtain that fits the room's decor? If so, then this can be an excellent way for concealing the boiler. With the curtain, you'll be able to effortlessly conceal it. Plus, this allows you to get to the boiler as quickly as possible whenever you need to. 

However, if you don't have a suitable curtain yet but still want to go with this option, make sure to take your time to choose the type of material to fit interior and color schemes.

3. Try Boxing Up The Pipes

No matter where your boiler is located, it is inevitable that it will have pipes sticking out of the wall, which can make the room look unfinished or untidy. In order to keep the space tidy and orderly, you may box in pipes, or you can try using pipe casings to safely concealing everything. 

Keep in mind that the boiler's pipes require enough ventilation to prevent overheating and fire risk.

If you have decided to go with this option, ensure that the boiler is still easily accessible in case the engineer requires servicing the boiler or alters the components inside.

4. DIY Chalkboard Cover

This method can be especially useful for artsy people. If you consider yourself the artsy type, chances are, you'd prefer to have a unique and distinct chalkboard instead of a standard wood cupboard around the boiler. You can easily create such a cupboard by using chalkboards rather than wood panels. You can even draw on the cupboard surface to make it look even prettier and eye-catching. Such a unit will be able to both hide the boiler in the room and beautify the entire space.

5. Custom Mirror Cupboard

If you have a small bedroom and the boiler is installed there, chances are, the room seems even smaller now, comment Design Build Partners. The good news is, you can give an impression of more space by using a simple trick; you can build the regular wooden frame around a boiler and then use a mirror for the panels. Not only can this give an impression of a much bigger open space, but it can create even more light in a room as well.

6. Decorate Or Conceal The Boiler Pipes

In most cases, internal pipes aren't the feature that many homeowners prefer to showcase. However, you can still incorporate them into the design of the room by painting them the exact same color as a wall or decorating them with some fairy lights. 

Just beware of the risk in case of using fuel, comments boiler repairmen My Plumber, even if going the extra mile of creating an industrial-style room that can perfectly match the aesthetic of pipes.

7. Deflect With The Surrounding Decor

If you prefer to only partially hide the boiler by distracting all the attention away from it, then consider using bold colors, patterned wallpaper, or some striking artwork. 

Rather than letting pipes and a bulky boiler ruin the interior design of your home, you can try to come up with some creative ideas for hiding or decorating them so that they remain overlooked but can still keep doing their job properly, comments property professional Paul Gibbens. That will also go a long way when you need to sell fast.

8. Consider Investing In The Compact Boiler

If your boiler is too big to conceal, you should consider getting a combi boiler; it is much smaller than a conventional boiler, so hiding it can be quite easy. Such a boiler combines the central heating boiler and water heater into one unit, which means that there is no longer a need for a separate storage cylinder or water tank. 

People with smaller properties are usually the ones who opt for the combi boilers, comment professionals 247 Home Rescue. The reason is that hiding smaller units is almost effortless and requires far less work.

So which one do you like the most?

As you can see, hiding a boiler is not as difficult as some people believe. All you have to do is to keep all these important factors in mind so that you will choose the best option for hiding the boiler that best fits your needs and requirements. 

Once you do this, you'll be able to successfully hide its presence in the room and even boost the overall appearance of your home interior.
