In this DIY project, Klaartje shows how she worked with custom-sawn MDF to create her own radiator conversion. She made a design, had everything cut to size delivered to her home and got to work straight away. Read more about her approach and experience below.

Description of Klaartje

Because ready-made conversion kits do not fit my radiator, I designed one myself that is open on the side. /p>

How I made this project

Drawing made. Have MDF 16mm cut to size:

  • 3 uprights of 65.0 x 20.0 cm
  • 4 beams of 85.0 x 10.0 cm
  • li>window sill 230.0 x 25.0 cm
  • 3 long beams of 230.0 x 5.0 cm
  • 2 old hardboard grids used.

Planks painted. Framework of uprights and beams and old grille mounted with short screws. The framework and grille are reinforced with a beam behind it, so that the framework maintains a distance of 2.0 cm from the radiator. A beam is attached under the windowsill board that hooks behind the radiator. Windowsill shelf on the frame. Sides remain open due to pipes running there and radiator knob.
