Re(al)vew: Wiremold Surface Raceways

We've always been a little bit skeptical of wire raceways or "molding management," as some like to call it. Why bother, when you can just shove the wires behind the floorboards and call it a day? Well, after our grand ol' experience installing a few surface raceways provided courtesy of Cableorganizer.com, we're feeling quite good about ourselves and surprised we didn't take on the simple project earlier...

Again, we previously had most of our wires nailed to the wall in a very ugly manner (our sincerest apologies for not having the before pictures, but believe us - it was pretty hideous having all those mismatched wires all over the place).

The wire management raceway was pretty flexible and had an adhesive on the back of the product to allow for easy mounting. The enclosure is also made of paintable latex made to easily paint over to match walls, but we preferred to leave it white to perfectly match our floorboards.

Installing the wires into the system was also a breeze as drilling holes felt as easy as cutting into butter. It's strong enough to hold about 5 wires going through at the heaviest points, but light enough to not rip paint off your walls. We didn't get any corner pieces sent to us, but luckily we had a power outlet on the corner, which simplified the process greatly.

You can grab the wire management raceway system over at Cableorganizer.com for $8-15, depending on the size you're looking for.
