Scott's Painting
Answer: In most cases
Explanation: Baseboard heaters can be painted along with the rest of a room, or with an accent color to give some character to the border where your walls and floor meet. The challenge is that the heater covers, unlike other paintable surfaces in your room, are made of metal. They are also subjected to great fluctuations in temperature as they operate. To achieve a strong, long-lasting, good-looking paint job, you have to do some special prep and use the proper paint.
