    I just find them a bit challenging to the aesthetic and would box them in (but I would have them closer to the corner too). I don't think they are aggressive enough for an 'industrial chic' look and with the plastic pipe clips it just seems as though it was done after the decorating and is waiting to be boxed in...

    Any heat energy those pipes radiate has to be replaced by the boiler so certainly not 'free' as such. The heat they radiate is no less or no more effective than if it had come from the radiator. IOW the choice is simply one of aesthetics. Assuming the pipes had to be routed from the floor above then I'd have asked the plumber to drop them down behind where the curtain is.

    Non lagged pipes do not achieve this.

    Aesthetically I agree, but you do not know if there are any other reasons for the pipework not to be in the corner, ie structural, or a lazy leaky joe.

    with 30% of the heat from the radiator going into side of the sofa maybe the pipes serve a functional purpose.

    The heating system was fitted way before we moved in so had no choice on pipe placement
    but I like the fact you can see the working as such
    We have a cottage on the side of the house which is over 300 years old
    god knows what we are going to do with that

    +1. Shame really because the decor and system look great to me. I have never liked central heating pipes but a necessary evil.

    Others may be jealous, usually those who still have dado rails, sculptured carpets and Artex.

    Honesty it really doesn't bother me , there are so many different types of set up's and room
    designs on this thread some look great some not so great IMHO.

    I've tried to do the best I could out of a very normal box size room by closing one door way opening another and also cutting the 3 boxes out the wall fitting the panels and LEDs.

    I have thermalite concrete floors and didn't really want to start cutting holes in the stuff to have the pipes rerouted and I deal say would of cost silly money as I have 4 levels if you count the basement.

    When we started the build we said we wanted to leave them on show and cleaned them up
    to look better

    We spent about 8 months working on the house before we moved in and still doing bite and bobs plus next year we want to start the decking and so on :)

    Well, I think yours looks great; you've done a brilliant job IMO.

    FWIW I think you've done a great job on the room. The 3 holes you opened up are a nice touch (and work well with the window in the distance - intended or not). If you get tired of the pipes you could always wrap them ;)

    In a country obsessed with Victoriana, I think Bazza's house looks ace. The wall panelling looks unusual and really adds a depth to the room.

    System looks pretty good too....

    Why is there no 'like' button on this forum? I reckon it would explode at that pic. Definitely my kind of bar!!

    Because that would be utterly, utterly shit.

    One can be one of the people who string together mellifluous monologues of prose. Delightfully dainty drops of dignified description. Cornucopia of correspondence capable of delivering nuance, subtlety and finesse.

    Or one can be an icon pushing person. One whose every thought has been pre-packaged into a series of responses you can teach chickens to simulate with positive reinforcement.

    Tokyo is indeed heaven if you like hi-fi, jazz records and booze.

    This guys photography project features a bunch of bars (though obviously not enough photos of hi-fi!)
