It is on the left side of my washer & dryer on a platform.

    louvered doors or an open lattice frame? Do you have a picture? Is it a gas furnace? Is there enough room and fire clearance to put a sliding panel or curtain? My furnace cannot be enclosed and must have air circulation, so I would have to use one of the 2 things I mentioned...unfortunately I don't have the room...

    If there is an open flame, be careful. Maybe a metal screen so there is circulation.

    You will probably want to do something that doesn't make it difficult to access the furnace and doesn't block air circulation. A few years back I did quick (cheap) window covers (attaching a picture) but you could do the same from the ceiling. I used drop cloth to make the curtains but a nice shower curtain could give you some decor options. Just use hooks, wire rope, wire rope clamps and curtain rings. One trip to Lady Lake Lowe's. :)

    What about a screen? If you are handy you can make the frame, and cover the inside with fabric! Or pictures mounted on monofilament.

    Susie that's a great idea. Something that would help the furnace blend in, is potentially laminate board. You could build a small room for the furnace, or at least a wall for it to hide behind. This would help the furnace from standing out, but still give you full access for repairs or maintenance.
