The TV room? That's a cinch. The office? Easy as pie. You want to know where we're really struggling to wrangle our wires? It's the bathroom. There's no TV stand to hide them behind. No under-desk clips to install. Your hair dryer, curling iron or beard razor—and their wires—either have to be out in full cord-spaghetti display or banished to the depths of your drawer to meet their tangled fate. Right? Wrong. Here's a bunch of other ways to keep bathroom cords tidy.
Bathroom appliances are a necessary evil for most of us. But it's impossible to keep your bathroom looking tidy when your electric razor storage solution is "leave it draped across the counter."
Instead, go for one of these storage and cord control solutions. Ranging in price from $40 all-in-one units to DIY projects that are nearly free, you'll find something to suit your bathroom tech style.
