Idea to finish around water supply linr and water meter


Any ideas what I should do to finish around a water supply line and meter? I've attached a couple pictures. It's almost half way down the wall. So far my only idea is to create a build end end table around the meter with a top that is removable for top for future water meter servicing. I looked on google images and Pinterest but I didn't see much.

Bear in mind you want that shut-off valve to be EASILY and QUICKLY accessible. If/when there are water problems you do not want to have to waste time trying to get at that valve.

What're you going to be doing to the rest of the room? Would this be a good area for a bookcase? Something like that would let you also cover the pipe going up the wall.

And are you not insulating the walls?

I am insulating the walls, but it will still probably stick out six inches or so. I was going to put an access panel on the side for a quick shutoff. It will just take moving a couch to access.

looks like a good place to frame a small closet that would hide the meter and the cleanout in the floor.

Closet in the middle of the room seemed like it would look weird to me I guess.

What about a bench with a removable top? Could also double as storage.
