We have a large and ugly cold air return in a very visible place in our house. It's on a wall in the front hallway and is covered with a metal grate. Someone suggested covering the grate with loudspeaker grill cloth. That would certainly improve the looks, and grill cloth is porous. I am wondering if it will decrease the efficiency of our furnaces. Thanks.

Don't recommend covering. However pull it out of the wall, take the inside measurements or take the whole thing to an HVAC supply and they can hook you up with a new one. Colors are available.
