The box air-conditioning unit is a necessary evil for many apartment dwellers. (Those of you about to head off to college, take note!) These things come with a few big cons: they are noisy, they are unsightly, they block the view out of your window
, and they are a pain in the neck to install and uninstall.
At least the unsightliness factor is something you can fix! Here are a few suggestions for hiding your air conditioning unit
from New York Magazine
- Decorate it with something pretty like wallpaper scraps.
- Build a decorative cabinet around it, but be careful not to block air flow.
- Disguise it from view with a sheer curtain.
- Hide it with a screen.
- Cover it with artwork and frame it.
