How Can I Hide Unsightly Cords Coming From One Room Into Another?

Good Tech Questions

Q: I've moved into a new apartment where I've divided my living room for double duty as a home office where I work from. One of the problems I've run into is the cable internet connection running from the hallway into the living room; the cable is not only an eyesore, but also easy to trip over. I currently have it hung over and around the doorway, but it's really ugly. Any suggestions?

Editor: I've done a lot of cord and cable covering in my time, so I understand your pain in regards to unsightly connections spanning from one room to another. Sometimes you need to run an extension cord or cable connection from one room to another, especially if you live in an older home or apartment. 

For doorway cord and cable highways from one room to another, consider using one of these Chordsavers; they're made of PVC, hide away cords and cables when you need them to transition from one room to another, and most importantly reduce the chance of tripping.
