Coating with black paint is probably the quickest and easiest way to “dress” the exposed pipes that run across walls.

Alternatively, Sherlynn Low, founder of Millimeters Studio, suggests roping the plumber in during the renovation process. This way, you can ensure the pipes are running in the most aesthetically pleasing manner – along the corners and less obvious areas.

If you have no way to conceal them, accentuate them!

Gary Ong, co-founder of Charlton Design, suggests using preserved reindeer moss to add some greenery and lend an organic look.

Alternatively, coat the pipes with copper-effect or even marble-effect paint, in order to get the rustic or luxe appeal.
