Finishing basement what to cover electrical panel with?

We are finishing our basement into a den and am looking for a good idea on covering up the panel box (bust still accessible) which is in the middle of our back wall???

Thanks in advance

Many just paint them to match the wall color - be sure to use enamel. Some will take/make a cabinet door [and frame] to hide the panel.

Don't remove the original door to make it pretty. Like Marksr, says, you can build a nicely framed door and attach it with hinges. You also can't occlude any part of the door facing, since it may have to be removed for maintenance.

You can cover it with anything removable.
Picture, mirror, cabinet door, paint it, wall paper it
