So Hot It’s Cool

You’re all for heating things up. Too bad you’re stuck doing it with an old banged-up radiator that’s as fugly as the couch your roommate left behind.

Since it’s the only eyesore that can’t be tossed, cover it tastefully with Sandcastle’s custom-built radiator covers.

The Allston furniture business crafts wooden frames out of birch, mahogany, or maple and then paints and covers them with interchangeable front panels. Built-to-last silk or cotton sheer finishes are on offer, with optional woven strings and motifs. E-mail measurements and snapshots of the area to be revamped and sit down to discuss the finer details.

The covers are sturdy enough to accommodate your collection of model trains or Olympic gold medals and will even act as a cushioned perch for your heat-seeking cat.

Because more than some like it hot.
