Okay, having wires and cables all laid out on the floor isn’t really a nice addition to your home’s chaotic creativity. Not to mention, it’s dangerous too. Can’t have you tripping around your house and cursing the blasted appliances, right? But it can’t be helped that your living a techy person’s life. You either deal with them or fix it.
So here’s the plan. In order to tame those cords, you can simply turn to these resourceful methods to keep them out of your way and make your home as clean and spacious as ever.
Round them up and tie them real good. You can you some Millipede Cable ties while you’re at it. Just don’t leave them all tangled up on the floor. By doing this you will be able to clear a path and organize those cords. While you’re at it you can also improvise by using a leftover paper towel tube for tangle-free extension cords. Do-It-Yourself Wire/Cord Wrappers are handy in keeping those lines intact and looking less messy. Roll them with a self-made cablebone (it’s up to you on what material to use, as long as you have a core to wrap those cords with). This is a good way if you want to shorten lengthy measures of cords such as your earphone.
2. Hide and Clean
It can be totally embarrassing to have guests see how shambolic your crib is. So to steer away from that sight of shame, you can make use of a basket case or a box to keep all the cords. You can just provide holes on the container so as to give a leeway for the hubs and forks.That way, it will hide the unbearable flaw of having them all sprawled out on the floor. A charging station can also be made out of an old shoebox or an office box, you can connect an extension inside with all the chargers hidden and only their connectors are in view to make it look very smart and neat. Plus, you don’t have to fidget where you put this charger of one particularly gadget and another.
3. Pegboard clears the day!
If you’d rather hide it from behind your desk or table, then a pegboard is a suitable idea. It’s one of the niftiest ways to clear your desk or make others believe of the power of a cordless workspace. Wire gratings and clamps are better used in this project than simple adhesives.
4. Labeling This and That
And to achieve an organized feat over a jungle of cables, create a map. Mark those cords and plugs using stickers or clip-on markers to identify each. This will cut down your confusion and waste of time finding what this and that are for. Thankfully, you want have to trace the root to figure out. You can simply label them and you will know right away for sure.
