Cold air return grate in middle of living room floor
This is a 1940's home with a 1'x2' cold air return grill for the forced air furnace is smack in the middle of the living room floor. Yes, that's right - in the middle of the room. (Room is 12'x15'). It is currently covered by a coffee table to prevent things from falling into it and not block airflow.. it is UGLY UGLY UGLY.. Not to mention inconvenient and a spare change/keys/earring trap wanna-be.. To make a long story shorter, it cannot be moved or eliminated. any ideas ?
