I have a wall mounted vacuum, broom and mop
I have given my HVAC closet a facelift. First I attacked how the closet looked on the outside. It was an old bifold door and when you opened it up it showed a water heaters and HVAC unit. The door I really took my time with. I ripped out the bifold and sanded the door down. My hallway has half wood walls. The top half is drywall that is painted grey and the bottom is painted white wood. My HVAC closet door now is smooth painted grey on top and white mesh at the bottom. I need some opening to allow the air the heating and cooling machine produces to leave. The white mesh blends right in with the wood walls too. I also sprung and got all the hallway doors and new handles. The HVAC closet I bought giant silver knobs that look very classy. The door is now super cute and begging to be opened. Inside. I then scrapped the popcorn ceiling and painted. I retiled under the water heater and HVAC. I then painted the walls white to clean it up. I can’t really do anything with the water heater and HVAC component. I just have to deal with it. To make it multi-purpose though, I added some storage elements. I have a wall mounted vacuum, broom and mop. I also wedged a bucket between my water heater and HVAC device. I even added some shelves to hold cleaning products. It makes the HVAC and water heater less noticeable with the other stuff in there.
