How to Hide a Ductless Mini Split
Please research the appropriate unit size for your area before purchasing. Above's suggestion of square footage is based on ideal situations where minimal heat is transferred. If the area contains many electrical appliances, windows, or non-insulated areas, your sizing may need to increase above the recommended square footage. Please ask an expert technician for ideal size before purchasing.
Ductless mini splits can boost your energy efficiency and provide improved heating and cooling for certain zones or rooms in your home. However many customers would like to find ways to not make them so obvious in a home's interior. Sometimes, you'd prefer if you didn’t have to look at your ductless mini split directly when you have other indoor decor that you'd rather be staring at. That’s not to say you don’t appreciate it, but you wished there was a way to hide it.
It turns out, there is. In fact, you have several means of hiding your ductless mini split or making it less apparent, which we’re going to present to you now.
Get a Large Framed Piece of Art
If it's an obvious wall ductless mini split that's getting you down, then feel free to find an awesome photo or artwork, frame it, and hang it up. Although the art won't directly cover the mini split system, your framed picture can at least guide the eye away from the split, which is almost as good. The idea being that a large framed piece of art will be where your attention will focus when you enter a room, turning the mini split wall unit from a focal point to a utility that can be ignored in the background.
Hide It Behind a Cabinet
If you have a ductless mini split on the wall of your bedroom, it can really detract from the aesthetics of your bedroom. You try not to look at the mini split, yet there it is, day after day. By getting a cabinet built around it, you can forget it exists in the first place. Many homeowners with ductless mini splits in a bedroom favor radiator covers made of wood and painted an appealing color. You could even build one yourself.
Get the Mini Split Installed Near the Fridge
You would have to have thought about this during the installation phase, but keeping your ductless mini split above or behind your refrigerator will attract less attention than getting one on the wall or the floor. The higher up on the wall, the better.
Buy a Bookcase
If you’re a book lover, then you probably already own some bookcases anyway, right? You might as well put one to good use to obscure the ductless mini split in your home. Depending on the room in which the split is located, you might need a bookcase that sits a bit higher up to hide the mini split. That requires you shopping around or even building your very own bookcase. This is a fun, rewarding DIY project, and it improves the appeal of your home.
