A good friend of mine is in the habit of buying old homes and fixing them up for rentals. His wife wants “covers” or more specifically “shelves” built over the top of old radiators.
I have done the google search on this (plus the LJ search) and have found lots of ideas for covers (front, sides and top) but not as many ideas for just a shelf.
The woodwork in the house is all Oak, some finished and some painted, and there are 11 radiators, all of various sizes.
Just looking for ideas on design:
1. Should the shelf be lattice or solid?
Here’s a couple of photos of the offending radiators (and fireplace)- and thanks for your comments….......
