Managing This Out of Control Cable Conundrum?

Managing This Out of Control Cable Conundrum?

Q: I need major design/tech help! I just moved into a new place with one of my friends, and in the minimalist mode I was in, I took the second bedroom. So after a little over 2 months of living in the new space, I'm finally happy with the design aspect of my bedroom/office/chill zone. But this wire situation is OUT OF CONTROL. Help!

I tried using painters tape and just taping wires to the back of my table in-between the table and the wall, but it just wasn't cutting it. I'm not sure what to do to hide all the wires. Keep in mind I'm a clumsy girl in my 20's, so drilling holes into my wall is something I'm not really comfortable with.

Editor - We've actually got a very simple and affordable answer: IKEA. Get yourself over to their home office section and you'll find the SIGNUM Cable Organiser.

If you want something with a bit more colour and at a smaller size, there's also the Cablebox Mini, available in an assortment of colours.

We've used these extensively for our home office and home entertainment center, and they can either be used on the floor or mounted on the wall (you might be able to use the removable 3M mounting system strips); another idea is to mount the SIGNUM to the underside of your desk, with the top cover facing forward to avoid the need to attach to the wall.
