One of the biggest obstacles for any tech loving dweller is cable management. It doesn't matter how fresh your home media set-up is, if you have a tangle of wires running down furniture and across floors you may as well be living in a Best Buy aisle. Lets take a look at five different solutions that will help put your wires in its place -- out of sight, out of mind.
For Speaker Wires
Conceal speaker wires with wood. This crafty solution uses wooden strips found at art supply stores, but you can also look for carpet trim if you're hiding relatively thin wires.
For Pendant Lamps
CableCup organizes and hides wires from hanging lights. Tuck all the electrical hardware of your pendant lamp in this cup, then flip it inside out and onto the overhead housing or crown molding.
Wiremold Raceways can hold up to five wires and are installed on your wall or floorboards using its self adhesive back. The cover can be painted to match the rest of your décor.
For the Home Office
Wrangle wires under your desk with rain gutters. Tuck power strips, wireless router, cable modem, USB cables and computer power cords into a rain gutter, then attach it to the underside of your desk.
For Overburdened Power Strips
Bluelounge Cable Box hides a surge protector and all that length of cable you always end up with when you plug things in.
