paint electical panel
Can you paint the cover of the electrical panel to match the walls?

You could always call your'e local building dept. and ask the electrical inspector.

Have seen it done in many jurisdictions (and quite well too, some looking like paneling, some looking like paintings), but you should call and ask JIC.

I did it once in my own home. My last home had it in the middle of a hallway, I hung a picture over it. You may want to check the legalities as plumguy suggested.

DTM paint
We have painted electrical panels for commercial use. We used direct to metal paint. Sherwin Williams, Duron paints, Porter paints, Home Depot are a few places to search for the DTM paint.
