HOW TO HIDE A KITCHEN GAS BOILER (part 2)
If you plan to install the boiler without changing the situation in the kitchen, then do not forget that in the first place you need to take care to comply with the above standards. Also, the boiler should not be located close to the meter – a distance of at least 1.5 m and the location of the chimney channel must be taken into account. Most often, the boiler is installed between the cabinets or in the corner, in the same row with them.
Such restrictions, without a doubt, make their own adjustments, so there is little space left for a fantasy flight.
HOW TO BUILD INTO HEADSETS
Immediately make a reservation that it is far from always possible to integrate the boiler into cabinets already fixed to the wall. This is primarily due to the fact that in most cases the dimensions of the boiler will not allow it to be inserted into existing niches. In addition, even if you manage to do this, you will need to remove the back wall of the furniture.
If the width of one cabinet is not enough, then you can combine it with a neighboring one. Often it’s not possible to fit the boiler into old furniture because of its height or due to the lack of cabinet depth. In this case, it is better to dismantle this part of the cabinet and install a new one made in your size in its place.
BOILER AS A PART OF INTERIOR
It’s far from always possible to hide a hinged boiler in the kitchen due to the features of this room. In this case, after installing the boiler, you can try to work on it so that it does not catch the eye.
Modern gas equipment has an attractive design, often with a digital display. Such equipment not only does not spoil the appearance of the room, but can also become a successful complement to the design.
If the boiler does not fit into the interior, then it can be camouflaged with branches of artificial plants.
You can also draw something or just repaint it, picking up the paint of the desired color.
There are many options to help hide or decorate a wall-mounted boiler. You can see the possible options in the “Photos” section.
HOW TO HIDE THE FLOOR BOILER

The floor gas boiler has a less attractive appearance and therefore it would be preferable to completely hide it from the eyes. But if you can still do this procedure with a heating device, then how to hide the gas boiler pipe? There are several options here.
It is not always possible to make a niche out of brick and put a pipe on it, as this will significantly increase the load on the floor. In addition, such actions must be coordinated with many services, so this method will not even be considered.
Purchase a box specially designed for these purposes and close the pipe to them.
Discharge the pipe immediately into the chimney channel.
Purchase a parapet boiler.

When using a parapet boiler, it is easiest to hide it in a closet. The fact is that air intake and removal of combustion products occurs through a pipe located behind the boiler. No need to worry about providing air access to the device. You can just order a cabinet of the appropriate size or make it your own. First, the boiler is installed and all communications are supplied to it, and then the cabinet is mounted.
As you can see, there are many methods that help preserve the interior of the kitchen by hiding a gas boiler in it.
