    You can paint it to hide it. Box it in-- but you need to have access to it. Can you put a curtain/tapestry over it? My neighbor hid hers under a laundry sign with funny/cute truisms about laundry such as "pairs of socks come here for a separation."

    Hi Kathymutter, hope this helps you out.

    Use easy solutions like curtains, shelves, faux wood beams, and hanging wooden panels you can safely and creatively hide your dryer vent hose, you could even use something like a lattice cage around it that can be easily moved for cleaning.

    Paint it the same color as the wall so it blends in.

    Since this is inside, paint to match would be the simplest solution. Or, maybe paint a theme on flowers, lighthouse,and so on.

    Box it in by using a framing of timber toped of with Hardboard or Plywood or MDF. Decorate to taste.
