In the box with it
You may be familiar with it: cable boxes. They are therefore certainly not the most original solution for getting rid of all those cords, but they are certainly handy! Nowadays there are cable boxes in all kinds of styles and colors. So something for everyone.
Behind the skirting boards
A good solution for cables that you leave along the wall and across the floor are hollow skirting boards (or skirting boards). The side you are facing is just flat and looks like a normal baseboard. The back, on the other hand, is hollow, so you can hide your cables well in it.
Clips for more than documents
You have those handy clips or clamps for stacks of paper: document clamps. But these are not only useful for your documents. No, they are also very useful for organizing your cables. Do you have a large jungle of cables hanging under your desk? Then attach a large binder clip to the bottom of your desk with a small screw and guide the cables through it. Then tie them together with a rubber band or zip ties, also known as tie wraps.
Speaking of tie wraps
Tie wraps are of course not called cable ties for nothing. If you’re dealing with a lot of cables together, it can help just to tie them together in groups. This gives you a better overview of which cables are hanging where.
Hoses and toilet rolls
There are tubes and hoses especially for hiding cables. These have an extra opening on the long side so that you can easily press the cables and cords in and do not have to remove them from the socket first.
Do you want to approach this a little more creatively and cheaper? Then you can also save some empty toilet rolls, cut them lengthwise on one side and paint in your favorite color. Then, of course, wrap them around your cables. What a solution! This is also fun to do with the kids.
An extra wall
This is mainly intended for TV cables. Those cables are especially noticeable if you have a TV on the wall. What you can do against that is create a false wall behind it. Because of the small space between the real and the fake wall, you can hide the cables between them well.
Another well-known solution, but we’ll just call it a wire basket. You can easily attach this basket to the back under your desk and put all wires and sockets in it. Do you have so many cables that it won’t fit? Then you can of course buy a larger one or attach two or even three wire baskets to your desk.
For the creative Beas!
Maybe you love to give your home a creative look. You can also do this with your cables! Do you have cables that come out of a visible socket and just look dull? Then attach your cords to the wall in a pattern or even replace them with a nice colored cord and make it into something fun! For example, paint leaves on it, so that it resembles a branch.
Completely off the wires
Of course, getting rid of your excess wires and cords completely out of the house is also an option. You can go wireless for that! Unfortunately, this has not been done 1, 2, 3, but if you pay attention to the fact that the device is wireless with every new purchase, you will slowly work them all out of the house.
