Antonius radiator

Bedroom radiator cover

Materials: Three Antonius shoe racks/plates (item 600.943.50 in The Netherlands, now discontinued), magnetic attachments, screws, wood, ventilation grill.

Description: With our bedroom dress boys in place, I also wanted to cover the radiator: it didn’t look nice, giving the room an unfinished look. I found the metal plates with rectangular holes in them from the Antonius system, intended to be shoe racks (these are now discontinued). I used three.

The sides have little “hooks” that fit perfect over small screws that have the head still sticking out a little. The wooden slats in between are fixed with magnets, so the whole thing can be quite easily dismantled for cleaning, repair, taking a picture for Ikea hacker, etc. It took some exact measuring, but gives a nice clean finish.

    If your room is large enough by not made another one further down that same wall and storage DVD’s, paperback books and/or CDs. Between the two made an open shelves for more storage of small things.
    This will look more complete and really hide your
    radiator for people will think it’s storage instead of a cover.
