Painted radiator cover: Yahoo! Homes Flickr photo of the week

Angela Kim

Radiators are often that big large metal thing you pretend not to notice on the side of the room. Yes, its function is to warm the home during the cold months but during the rest of the year, it just sits there – doing nothing. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

In this photo from the Yahoo! Homes Flickr group, Miss Luick shows us how a radiator can blend into your home’s décor. Having a cover over the radiator and painting it to match your room actually gives it a fresh new look – and adds extra shelf space.
