Baseboard heaters are great for heating your home, but most people agree that they’re not the sightliest things. Luckily, there are a few easy ways to make your baseboard heaters look better. These baseboard heater cover renovation ideas will get you started on improving the appearance of your baseboard heaters.
Give Them a Good Cleaning
Sometimes, all your heaters need to look good again is a thorough cleaning. Because they’re on the floor of your home, baseboard heaters tend to experience scuffs and bangs easily, which isn’t ideal for their appearances. They also accumulate dust quickly, which not only makes them look bad but also hinders their operation. To keep your heaters looking neat, vacuum them and their heating elements regularly. Also, wipe off any unsightly scuffs on them every so often.
If the surface of your baseboard heater looks scuffed, chipped, rusty, or generally worse for wear, painting it may be a good option. To start, you’ll need general paint supplies, including a paintbrush, drop cloth, painter’s tape, metal primer, and the paint you’ll be using. Sand the surface of the heater. Then, cover the heating element with the tape and apply the metal primer. After this, your heater will be ready for a new coat of paint! You can choose whatever color you like. But, if you’re going for a subtle look, it’s best to choose a color that blends in with whatever is behind the heater.
Add a Stylish Baseboard Heater Cover
Adding a new, stylish baseboard heater cover into the mix is even better than painting your baseboard heater.
