I would definitely be putting it in the "walk in closet" if its big enough even for just the matress to fit, curtain it off with something from ikea. Easy to hide and so cozy!

If you wont use them inside then you may as well get use of them outside!

Take the pads off, cover with oil cloth and staple tight, put them back on - youre done!

I would also suggest sealing the metal parts with a coat of clear varnish to prevent them from rusting in the rain etc.

What about some nice wrapping paper stuck on with repositionable spray mount? Then just peel it off and give the doors a clean when you leave.

Not exactly the same, but when we moved into our flat in UK, there was an awful 70s wood effect gas fire mounted on the wall, which we thought we could rip out, but turned out to be our water heater too! Nightmare. Anyway, we took the front cover off to get it to the smallest depth from the wall we could, which is about ten inches. We then made an MDF `3 sided box`cover if you know what i mean, that could sit in front of it, painted it the same colour as the walls and put a slick shelf above it, it looks so much better.

Why not build a cover, cut openings for vents and cover these with a nice wooden fretwork or metal mesh from a diy store?

Obviously, take into consideration how hot this thing gets, and design around it accordingly for safety reasons. Dont let it stop you buying a house, I know it looks horrific but im sure you can work something out!

Hmm, I can only find ugly stainless steel ones made for police stations, but how about a sink in a drawer!?
