    Afternoon!

    Ive recently moved into a house that has a gas pipe sticking out of the wall inside one of the cupboards. Its the cupboard next to the oven.

    Any ideas on how i can hide this? Pics below

    Thanks,

    If that were mine, I'd remove the back of the cupboard (or cut out a larger area around the pipe), cut the pipe back and cap it off. A relatively simple job for a gas safe plumber.

    Is the pipe accessible before it comes through to the cupboard, whats on the other side?

    dont think it can be hidden but it can be removed by a gas safe registered person :)

    That is a symphony kitchen in a relatively new build house. Customer would have chosen an induction/electric hob. Gas pipe would have been put in as standard.

    Remove backboard, get it cut back and capped off, replace backboard with 3mm board or put a sticker etc over existing hole
