{1} Buy Your Way Out

If you are not very into DIY projects and you would rather buy something to save you the trouble – you’re in luck. Some of the great things brought to you by department stores and other shops are cord management straps (best for computer wires), cable drops, cable boxes (convenient for a large number of wires), etc. After you get one or all of these, it will be easy to use them to “tuck in” and organize TV and audio system wires, as well as the computer cables. Pain-table cord covers are another great investment when you have to hiding wires in plain sight.

{2} Think Inside of the Box

Sure, you can buy an ordinary-looking white cable box, or you can play with fancy storage boxes and create unique decorative elements on the same place where the unappealing wired “birds’ nest” used to be. Just cut out a hole on both sides of a storage box, and neatly pull the wires through the holes.

{3} Turn Wires into Wall Art

After all, isn’t that what art is truly about – turning something ugly into something beautiful? Get a few ordinary wire clips and create a shape you want to have on your wall – it can be everything from a building to a flower. You can also make your job much easier by getting some creative clips which will give the wires an instant appeal.

{4} Get the Most of the Furniture

Whenever electrical outlets are near a larger piece of furniture, you can easily hide the cords behind it. This especially goes for the furniture with back panels. You can also use things as area rugs and heavy drapes to conceal the unsightly wires. Before you do so, however, you should check if all the wires are properly installed and safe to avoid fire hazards, advise the people behind Sydney Electrician.

{7} Make a Charging Station

Did you notice how everyone seems to be charging their phones and laptops at the same time? There are cables hanging out of every outlet in the house and that is simply intolerable. Make it simpler, cleaner and more stylish by creating your very own charging station. Just get an ordinary shoe-box, power strip and some colorful wrapping for the ‘wow’ effect.
