Sometimes we’re stuck in the room with the pipes showing – not common in England, but it happens quite a lot in European homes. So what can you do if you want to decorate your home the style you want, but these pipes spoil the look? You can paint them to match the wall colour, or make a feature out of them by painting in a contrasting shade. Why not try something really extra-ordinary like a lime green or red? It’s such a smart and unusual look, and can add edgy finish to your home! Just be careful when choosing the paint, and make sure it’s heat resistant, as these pipes can often hold a running hot water. It is a really smart way of making the most of what you’ve got, and we applause it!
