Before choosing a decor, investigate the condition of the heating system. If this is central, then disguise will be difficult and can lead to damage to the apartment and the heating system of the whole house. And if individual, then the decoration will be painless, both for you and for the neighbors.
It is necessary to consider:
Pipes from the towel can be hidden with gypsum board and false wall.
There are two ways of masking. The first is the deepening of the pipes in the wall. The second is the creation of a false wall. Both options are often used, but only determined immediately at the repair stage, in order to think through the design, mount with minimal losses and minimal harm to surrounding apartments and houses.
The thickness of walls in the house plays an important role, since in order to place in the excavation system, it will be necessary to carry the reinforced concrete wall with the help of heavy tools.
Before disguising, make up a detailed scheme of communications in the room, in order to place them on a normal scale and without mutilation. T-pieces, corners, fittings, all connecting elements are taken into account. And that all radiators have a conclusion and connection it is necessary to distribute them according to the scheme.
When the shtroba is made, heat insulation is laid in it to preserve heat energy. The owner of the apartment independently determines the building mix, which is used, but often it is plaster putty, because it "tolerates" moisture.
All these actions will lead to the appearance of a large amount of debris in the house, and moreover, to approach these communications in case of an emergency situation can not be without prompt intervention by plumbers.
Mask piping systems in the best way with gypsum cardboard and other decorative walls. Whenever possible, the radiators and batteries are removed.
For example, apply on a sheet of drywall any pattern you like and carve it with an electric jigsaw. Then, using putty and paint, draw a box of aesthetics. This screen does not interfere in any way with heating, but it is necessary to provide access to potential risk places( fittings, couplings, etc.).It is possible to divide the structure into doors and put one of them on two self-tapping screws, which will quickly dismantle it and cope with the problem of leakage.
There are many ways of decorating pipes, but only one is able to completely change the design of the room.
