I have a lounge with a solid floor. The pipes that connet the radiators
run along the skirting and are very ugly. Does anyone know where I
might get fluted or recessed skirting board, so I may have a plumber
re-configure the pipes and have them hidden by the skirting. Either
wood or plastic? Failing that any other ideas welcomed.
I guess you mean degrees F. Could you have the pipes split into a series of
smaller pipes, then hide them in the base of the wall? I imagine most people
just consider heating pipes are a fact of life and learn to live with them.
I am with you - it would shit me to have to see them running along the
floor. I designed a system a while back that covered internal wiring by
having hollow skirting boards with trays/rails inside them for running all
manner of cables through them - this was to be integrated with a wall
panelling system so any additional depth was disguised. I was thinking
mainly of apartment dwellers who don't have the luxury of going under floors
or inside walls. You could make up a deeper box section at the bottom, then
step a further piece in a bit, THEN sit your skirting board on top of that -
in this way you start deeper and finish against the wall - bloody hard to
describe - let me know if the idea appeals and I will do a quick drawing
sweltering in 44 degree Centigrade heat today.
Just a suggestion, remove skirting, move pipes back against wall (still at
floor level), and then box them in using skirting board as 'front' of box.
This box should only protude an inch or so from the wall...
Just thinking out loud there, I have seen it done in a bathroom and it
looked good, however was partially blocked from view by sink etc..
