Radiators can be an eyesore. In my first apartment, the radiator was the first thing you saw. In addition to making a clanging sound every time it was on and to emitting so much heat the windows had to be opened even if it was snowing, it was really ugly. If you’re living in a home or an apartment with a radiator and are tired of looking at it, here are some ideas to cover it up.
