Flat screen televisions and wall-mounted installations have quickly become the entertainment product of choice for many Americans. These options not only free up floor space, but they too eliminate a need for large entertainment centers which can really open up a living room or other area in a home. However, with the ability to install these features and items, comes a need for the power supply to be nearby in order to use these plugged-in products.
Depending on where the power outlets are located, appliances and other items may leave power cord trails exposed between the two points. Not only are these exposed wires a true eye-sore, but they can also be a safety hazard. Depending on their exact locations, the exposed wires could be trip hazards or unwanted focal points within a space. Wall mounted TV brackets are becoming more popular
and with this rise in installations comes the need for hiding exposed wires.
Utilizing furniture placement can help conceal wiring without having to find an alternative option. Stand alone electric fireplaces, bookcases, entertainment centers, dressers, etc. can all be used to hide wiring depending on the placement of an appliance or TV.
Behind the Wall
Another option for homeowners is to hide wiring within the wall. Typically, only two holes would be needed for a seamless installation. The first being where the device is located and another nearest the corresponding power source.
Corral Cords / Clips
Depending on the length of a cord and proximity to the power supply, it may be possible to corral your cords or clip them into smaller sections. By minimizing their existence, the need for hiding a cord in question will be limited.
Tubing sleeves may also be used to move wiring from source to power supply without having to deal with an immediate eyesore. Depending on the needed accessibility, a singe piece of tubing may hold multiple wires.
There are also covers available for wiring needing to traverse a certain area. From flooring to the wall, these alternate covers can help to reduce wire exposure.
Natural sight lines can also be utilized to help diminish a wire's ability to stand out from its background. By purposefully running a wire along either a door frame, baseboard, or other already present construction feature, the ability to blend within its surroundings is entirely possible.
Creative accessories can also help to hide exposed wires. Conveniently placed books, boxes, or other items can help conceal wires without having to put holes in a wall or target exposed sightlines.
