Baseboard heaters that are plugged in can be painted only if they come with covers, allowing them to match with any existing wall paint or furniture. Custom covers are also available for baseboard heaters to make them stand out from the wall around them.
Baseboard heaters are typically mounted on a wall and can come in either a plug-in type or require a dedicated circuit. This type of heater is also low risk, as it does not use any flames or create carbon monoxide. The cover of a baseboard heater serves the primary function of keeping the hottest part of the heater's surface out of reach from children and pets.
