Ideally? Conduit in the walls.

Worst case? Something like this.

u/SuckinLemonz · 24 pointsr/Rabbits

You spay/neuter them. You put their hay feeder above their litterbox. Then you put almost no effort into litter training them but it somehow works.

Then you buy cord protectors for everything for a grand total of idk, like, $20 bucks on Amazon. Realize that buying cord protectors that go against your wall actually make your home look better too. Splurge an extra bit every month to get decent litter and litterpan liners. Throw out the trash every 3 days without having to wash a box and feel like a king.

Pick up stray “territory poops” on occasion. Remember to exclaim to yourself each time: “wow. These aren’t even like poop. It’s just hard brown grass balls. These are so weird. Shouldn’t I be grossed out by this? Why aren’t these gross? Why can’t our poop be this great? If I ate like a rabbit would my poop be like this?”

Bam. You’ve got a house trained rabbit. And a rabbit-trained person. Move on to the task of convincing them to love you.

Do you own or rent?

Your speaker setup could be vastly improved by just spreading them out to their appropriate space thereby creating a better cinematic experience while watching television, as well as decluttering your AV hutch a bit further.

If you own, you route your baseboards to run the wires, if you rent, you can buy self adhesive tracks which will hide the wires. It's not much work and makes a huge difference. Said wires can then be reused for when/if you upgrade.

Also the subwoofer can be totally hidden away since bass/low frequencies tend to be non directional. You can even get slim units that slip under your sofa so the effect is more pronounced at lower volumes.

Although for all I've said, I'm really nitpicking. Your space is great.

Obviously, larger ones for more wires, just not too slim.

u/The_Empir3 · 19 pointsr/AmateurRoomPorn

What a great view! Also, I really love the idea of the frame TV but I feel like that console underneath ruins the illusion because it’s such a “TV” setup. A little cable management molding and you could ditch the console for an even cleaner look.

u/TheCasualJedi · 18 pointsr/malelivingspace

Hole in the wall and drop the cable down. Then put a wall grommet near your outlet.

Or one of the cable hiding plastic pieces, legrand makes a good one but make sure you use vinegar to remove them or else they’ll pull the paper off the drywall which Is a pain to fix.


Wall grommet

Edit: forgot to mention that if you’re putting a power cable in the wall you’ll need a different cable to actually run through the wall to keep it in code as it is a potential fire hazard. Here is a good kit that would fit for this example

u/LaurenLestrange · 18 pointsr/makeuporganization

Love it! One thing to complete the look would be a cable concealer or raceway like this

u/adamantwinds · 17 pointsr/malelivingspace

u/rolfraikou · 14 pointsr/techsupportgore

May I suggest some cable clips, cable sleeves, cables channels, and a cable wire baskety thing to put an end to that?

u/freespace303 · 13 pointsr/hometheater

Good on you for going with a gigantic screen. Plenty of upgrade potential sound system wise as well. What projector are you using? Short throw?

A few recommendations - bring those fronts down to ear level, and rears down to about the recommended height of 3 feet above ear level when you are sitting. You could use a stand for the left rear -

If your worried about stand stability, use a barbell weight on top of the baseplate to weigh the stand down and make it more secure -

Cable channels will help hide your cables really nicely -

u/Sev-is-here · 12 pointsr/battlestations

This is how I deal with all of my cables, even at work, and it works great for me. (IT and I get to do servers and office set ups when I deploy devices for people)

It is much easier to hide cables away from the focus of the eyes. So pull your desk out, and get all the cables individually pulled back to the end device. Get velcro cable ties - Not zip ties (if you pull to tightly then you can tear the shield and allow for cross talk / issues)

I start the furthest away from where my device is, and work my way to that device. Once you pull everything cleanly in the area of focus. Get some under desk cable management strips (link at the end of post to some on amazon for an idea) and tuck those cables at the end of the desk in the holder of your choice.

Now what do you do with the mess at the end near your end point? - Velcro them into a "loop" or have them make a U shape and route back up to your end point from the other side. For you, have it go behind your computer and loop back up behind it, so they all plug in fine, but you wont see them.

Its resulted in virtually no cables on peoples desks (besides mine because fuck doing work for myself on the clock)


u/nguy8931 · 12 pointsr/buildapcsales

I also have this desk. This is my setup at full height:

Monitor Arms: North Bayou Arms

Monitors: Dell U2417H 24" monitors

Keyboard: Ducky One Side Print 100% Keyboard

Mouse: Logitech MX Master (Meteorite)

Mouse Pad:PECHAM Extended Pad

Speakers: Logitech Z313

Chair: Amazon Basic Mid-Back Chair

Lamp: Desk Lamp

Drawers: IKEA Alex

Plants: Random succulents from Trader Joe's

Wallpapers: Studio Ghibli Wallpapers (1920x1080)


Cable Management: involves the cable raceway attached below the desk using Command Strips from Wal-Mart. The cord management sleeves came in 4 pieces and I used that to organize all the wires. I have the speaker remote attached next to the lifting mechanism under the desk which is nice for quick volume control. The sub-woofer is placed on the desktop due my preference of having the fewest number of cables coming down from the desk. The one cord that hangs down is the power strip that runs to the outlet. The power strip is placed within the c-clamp of one of the monitor arms.

Price: I was able to get a lower price in September 2018 at Office Depot using a 20% off coupon that was in general circulation. The final price with taxes and shipping to store was $149.90. But, I would gladly pay the $159.99 listed here.


Overall, I love the desk. In fact, I bought another one for my wife. The ability to switch between standing and sitting with the lifting mechanism is well worth the low price I paid. The setup requires minimal effort to lift - I personally use two hands for stability. I do think that an addition of a computer tower on the desktop will make it difficult, but not impossible, to lift. There is mention of wobbling in one of the review videos on YouTube, but it is barely noticeable on a day to day use. I will say that my only complaint is the desktop is not solid wood and I have experienced a bit of surface lift after a cup with condensation was left on the desktop overnight. I recommend using a coaster if you plan to having drinks on your desk.

u/ElQueso5 · 11 pointsr/DIY

Can you run them behind the wall?
If not, check out these covers, they can be painted to match the wall

u/LeftMySoulAtHome · 11 pointsr/GirlGamers

Hi! I also have chronic pain/am disabled. I play Steam games with an Xbox One controller with the Windows 10 wireless adapter. (I tried the Steam Controller but it was bulky, not intuitive, and I basically hated it. lol. YMMV.)

I have my tower sitting in this cabinet, which I covered with this film to keep everything hidden. My husband cut out the back of the cabinet to install a fan / make room for the cables to come out of the back.

We used these cord covers to keep everything neat.

I use this wall-mounted swing arm from Amazon for my monitor. I push it toward the wall when I am done. (I put my chair/station in the corner for this to work.)

I sit in an IKEA Poang chair with ottoman, using this lower lumbar cushion and this coccyx cushion.

I use this mouse arm on the Poang chair, these cushions for my elbows, and a beanbag rest for my wrist (for when I have to use the mouse).

My keyboard sits on a shelf beside me and I pull it onto a lap desk (stored under my chair) for when I need to use it.

I also have a wall mount for my Xbox One controller.

I hope that helps! It took me a long time to get something together that keeps my living room still looking like a living room. :)

u/TurtleBoiCudge · 10 pointsr/battlestations

This would look 10x better if you fixed those cables. I would use this for the monitor cables and this for the PC cables.

u/pencilvester_C137 · 10 pointsr/InteriorDesign

Good man. Now just lower the mount height of your TV so it's actually at eye-level when seated. Unless of course you're sitting on bar stools while watching TV.

It'll also help conceal that unused pass-through.

Otherwise this is also an option that lays on the wall and runs the cables inside of it:

You can then paint it to match the color of your wall. I have it in my apartment and while there's an obvious wide 'bump' on the wall it works wonders to keep things looking sleek.

u/HongRiki · 9 pointsr/battlestations

what i do is buy a raceway.
stick that thing on the bottom of your desk and just tuck everything in. can also double side tape the power brick to the bottom of your desk will also help.

u/chancethebanker · 9 pointsr/battlestations

I have a similar standing desk and got something like this and a standard cable management tray and mounted both underneath my desk at the back. You can use any normal powerstrip but I wanted the wider one because of some larger power blocks and and because I wanted to more evenly distribute the weight. That way I really only have 1 cord that comes off my desk similar to the one you see here on the right.


Edit: I am actually really interested in how you wired the lights. It looks like you punched through the carpet. Did you do that when installing or am I missing something? Did you do the same for ethernet?

u/fatshamers · 8 pointsr/malelivingspace

Yo bro.

Try cleaning up your cables. Amazon has some cool plastic hiders.

Also, try spacing the stuff on your walls a bit more. It's a bit congested. Other than that, not a bad college pad.

u/Petit_Hibou · 8 pointsr/AmateurRoomPorn

You're off to a really great start! I have a few suggestions if you're looking for improvements. There are a lot of suggestions below, but that certainly doesn't indicate that what you've done isn't good. Rather, there are a lot of directions you can take the space and it's up to you to decide how to prioritize.

  • I would NOT get a second cabinet in that same style for the other side, but you do need to finish that side with the speaker. I suggest a basket and plants (see below).
  • I think you'd do great to change the curtains from a solid to a print to liven the space up slightly. The green color is fine, or you could go all-blue or yellow.
  • Get a large basket to store the blankets in so they're not draped over the couch (unless you need them to protect the couch from pets or kids).
  • I don't think the colors of your throw pillows on the couch really work. I'd stick with the blues and tans you already have in the room, but get a large bold pattern.
  • Get at least 2 plants-- one small one to go on the little cabinet, and one large floor one to go on the speaker side of the TV.
  • I'm not sure what the items on top of the cabinet are, but they're the wrong scale. Dress the cabinet up with stuff like a decorative vase, books, a large framed picture etc. Group items together in little clusters rather than spacing them out evenly, and try to vary the heights and textures.
  • It doesn't look like a conventional coffee table would work, but you want somewhere to set a beverage down near the couch. I suggest getting one or maybe two narrow end tables to go by the arms of the couch.
  • Lastly, I'd recommend getting a cable management sleeve to run along the floor on the speaker side to hid that power cord.
u/lilmidjumper · 8 pointsr/HomeDecorating

Your TV is up WAY too high, i would adjust your hanging system to be at least a foot and a half lower than it currently is. You could always get make a TV/bookshelf wall unit to go around it. It covers wires, acts as storage, and fills the space without being in the way. I'd recommend a lighter toned wood color, like a grey or an oaky color. For concealing wires, a big help would already come from lowering your TV, but there are different options such as these

But some people prefer to do the more hole-poking meeting of cutting a hole where the wire starts, and another hole near the outlet. I personally don't recommend that method especially since you're likely going to have studs in the way. But a thin, long tv console could easily cover a majority of the wires that bother you.

A good method for figuring out the size of furniture you want to buy is to outline the area of space you want the piece to take up using blue painters tape. You can easily adjust the dimensions, and you can run it up a wall to figure out height. Step backwards and sit where you normally would to see if you'd be okay with something that long/tall/wide and adjust until happy. Once you've found the basic dimensions you'd be happy with you can go online and start looking.

I personally wouldn't recommend a free hanging console if cords bother you, it won't conceal much. However if you're worried about a large tv console, you could try a few free hanging shelves below for storage, and some nice simple prints on the wall as well.

u/Brochunter · 7 pointsr/ValveIndex

I put my PC in my VR room and ran a 75ft hdmi (fiber) and usb extenders for the mouse/keyboard to the tv I use for pancake gaming, in the other room, using the wall ports and cable concealers. Works like a charm!

u/Crgx22r7 · 7 pointsr/CableManagement

If you don't have the option of hiding them in the wall and coming out under your desk, you could go with some of the concealer/strip items and try to match it to your wall color. Something like this

u/AcrobaticButterfly · 7 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/peejaysayshi · 6 pointsr/beyondthebump

You could use cord tracks if you can't just put them behind furniture. We used that for our ceiling lamp cord since we don't actually have an electrical box in the ceiling to put a light up. If they're super determined they could probably pull it off the wall, but honestly if they're super determined there's probably not a whole lot you can do. :P

u/tricheboars · 6 pointsr/oculus

Okay. So wall mounted sensors are definitely the way to go. I got these:
Uxcell 1/4" Black CCTV Security Camera Metal Wall Mount Bracket

But the wires right? Well for those I got these:
Wiremold C110 1-channel CordMate Kit, White

Then I have 10ft USB 3.0 extension cables on two sensors and a 16ft active USB 2.0 cable on my third sensor.

I ran the cables along the baseboard with the cord mate runners. They are white which matches my baseboards and then I run the cord mates with the sensor cables inside up the walls in the corners.

Shit works. Tracking is flawless. It's barely noticeable and I never have to mess with them now that they are setup.

When it comes to vr don't be surprised if you need to rearrange the layout of your furniture in the computer room. Think long and hard and then commit.

It helps if you draw this shit out first and think about how to lay out it before doing anything. This project will take a day but once your done your done.

u/dramboxf · 6 pointsr/homelab

A company I used to work for used Panduit plastic conduits for their industrial cabinets. There were always chunks left over since they cut them to size; I grabbed a few and screwed them into the legs of my desk and ran everything through that. The wife was insanely happy.

That's also when I learned to not use ZIP ties.

u/VRegg · 6 pointsr/Vive

I'd recommend searching for a "cord channel" or "cord raceway" as an alternative. This is an easy way to hide a cable.


One thing you need to be careful of is if you are using one that comes with adhesive backing and need to remove it the paint will likely come off with it. I am considering getting a kit without it and using 3m velcro strips.

u/DeltaVelocity · 6 pointsr/battlestations

I cut holes for these plates. Then just used a cable snake to pull the cords through.

Cut this cable raceway to size and tucked it up under the desk to run the power, display port, and keyboard cords.

u/Cyrax89721 · 6 pointsr/CableManagement

Easy enough!

Beyond that, I use velcro straps, clear tape, double sided tape, cable sleeves, and zip ties depending on the circumstance. Doing an Amazon search for Cable Management will also help get you some ideas.

u/Lee_Ars · 6 pointsr/homelab

It's a super-cheap 1U cable management tray from Amazon :D The front panel is a little flimsy, but it works perfectly fine for shoving cables into.

u/Cik22 · 6 pointsr/malelivingspace

Easy solution. They should be white to match the base boards. They have double sided tape on one side that keeps them on the wall. I’ll warn you though it is super sticky. You can also pain the tubes to match the wall color if needed.

u/CynosureEPR · 6 pointsr/Battletops

Can do you one worse; there's like 5 of these under the desk: and a bunch of little circular wire grips/etc. along with my network switches/hubs/surge protectors all fixed to the bottom side of the desk.

..but as upgrades happened over the year(s) I've been popping out cables here and cables in there. It's hard to plan where each cable needs to go, which hub needs to be used, which power supply to connect to, etc. with a desk this long. I end up moving them around a lot until I find the perfect length cable/hub for practical use. I think it's all about where I want it now though. On top of that, my laptop and a lot of the gear need to be readily mobilized.

The plan is to create an under-desk diagram, unplug every cable and rewire the entire office neatly sometime soon; I may have time this Thanksgiving weekend.

u/crenstro · 6 pointsr/battlestations

I use some cable raceways for my TV the bedroom. Pretty cheap option. You can pick them up at your local home improvement store. They come in a bunch of sizes and lengths, and are easy to paint if you want.

Edit: I used the 3M Velcro command strips to hang them instead of drilling into the wall. They do sell self adhesive ones, but it will take the paint off the wall if you ever decide to move it.

u/Bohan_of_Rohan · 6 pointsr/betterbattlestations

Here ya go. I've done a few similar projects and I've used these everytime. They make cable management super easy and super fast.

u/Jrbjordan · 5 pointsr/AverageBattlestations

Probably get a chair, and some of these. Other than that it's looking good!

u/TexasForever_ · 5 pointsr/battlestations

You should buy some cable concealers then get them painted to match your wall. Not better than hiding them in the walls obviously, but it's the best you can do for renting a place.

u/enna12 · 5 pointsr/HomeDecorating

They make cord covers like this that you can put down by the trim & either leave white to match the trim or paint beige to match the wall.

u/White_Phoenix · 5 pointsr/Kappa

The excuse some of these people make is that they're in living arrangements where you may not be able to do such a thing. All I can think of is just run a goddamn wire against the wall. You can make a cable run look clean if you put it as close to thew all as possible and if you have to cross floors fuckin use cable raceways with that adhesive on the back to cover it up:

Problem fucking solved. That way you don't make holes in your wall to do it and it looks clean.

u/AlmightyGnasher · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Bought everything. The desk itself is from Etsy. I stuck cable raceways around the outside of the desk, they're awesome I recommend them. Other than that double sided sticky pads and cable clips come in handy for sticking power packs and extension leads under the desk.

u/Jenjenmi · 5 pointsr/HomeDecorating

Consider using a paintable cable keeper that adheres to the walls. Whatever cables can't be neatly wrapped and tucked out of site, running them in this way down to outlets makes them almost disappear.

Wiremold C110 1-channel CordMate Kit, White

Or maybe find a wall mount shelf that would hold your turn table and put it to the right of your existing shelf? Then you could tuck as many of the cables as possible to the bottom of the shelf and that would help a lot.

Is this one from Ikea big enough for the turntable?

u/ryzzie · 5 pointsr/konmari

So for wall mounted TVs I recommend a cable raceway (similar to this) to disguise the cable on the wall. You can adhere to the wall with command strips or other double-stick.

You can also use this for the lamp cord. I recommend moving the lamp closer to the wall. If there is excess cord, you can often feed it back into the lamp base. If your lamp base doesn't have a bottom, you can neatly (and gently) coil (DO NOT CREASE) the excess cord and secure with cable ties (I like this stuff because it only takes a little, and it's repositionable, unlike zip-ties).

As far as the power brick and excess cord to the wall...I would recommend placing an entertainment center (games????) OR some kind of decorative something that sparks JOY! Maybe something that can function as storage for something you need in the room, but don't want laying about (remote controls, etc).

Pro-tip: it may be tempting to pull cords SUPER tight, but keep a little slack to ensure the cable isn't being bent at the connectors.

Good luck, and please share your end solution with us!

u/Kami_Idol · 5 pointsr/AnimeFigures

Generally, LEDs for indoor use shouldn't do any harm to figures because they don't output UV or enough heat, so those lights should be fine assuming you don't mind switching out batteries every once in a while.
It's not wireless, but if you're willing to do some extra work, they sell wire hiding tubes that you can stick along walls and corners with adhesive.
It might be kind of a pain, but it'll give you more varied lighting options than just battery powered lights.

u/cubanita · 5 pointsr/AmateurRoomPorn

Agreed. We used these in our living room and they are great. You can paint over them too, to match the wall color. Legrand - Wiremold CMK50 Cord Mate II Kit- Raceways Cord Management Kit to Hide Cables, White

u/Sarinatu · 5 pointsr/malelivingspace

Do some simple cable management. Something like this and you'll barely notice the wires...

u/DGPantherX · 5 pointsr/cableporn

Not OP either, however if you're not running that thick of cabling and would rather not drill a bunch of holes on the underside of your desk, I'd recommend J Channel Cable Raceway. It doesn't come with screws, however you can get 3x 1/4" inch (length) screws and secure it to the bottom of the desk. Also, if the raceway's too long, just grab a mitre box and a hacksaw and cut to the proper length. For reference, I bought 2 of them, and cut the ends just enough to where they could give the center desk leg some breathing room to fit comfortably, then I mounted the two with some 1/4" screws.

u/Murdopolis · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Haha thanks! I took a lot of time to make sure they were hidden. I used the monitor mounts (that have cable clips) to run the cables to the monitors and everything is tucked into a cable "raceway" attached to the back of the desk.

Here is a link to it.

u/Zoid13erg · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Cable covers stuck under the desk. I'm debating drilling a hole in the desk for my keyboard and mouse wires.

u/maxrip · 5 pointsr/DeskCableManagement

Easy fix.

Use cable trays on the bottom of the desk:

Then screw in a large strip cord to the bottom:

Some cable clips to top it off (use your favorite style, there are plenty):

Then run them down the legs from the bottom of the desk, just use Velcro straps or something :)


Here are both of my main setups using only those products:

u/HudsonSir · 4 pointsr/InteriorDesign

This sort of stuff ("cord hider"?) works pretty well for hiding cords and making it blend in with your baseboard somewhat if you end up going that route.

u/YOLO_HASHTAG_SWAG · 4 pointsr/oculus

List of components:

u/AtlasGallivant · 4 pointsr/hometheater

Not really a permanent fix, and you mentioned being open to professional solutions so you're likely in a position to cut into the wall... But if for some reason you're looking for a quick fix, look into cable runners if you haven't already. You can find them at Home Depot/Lowe's and can paint them to match the color of your wall.

Again, not the best solution, but I've used it when I didn't want to run wires through the wall/ceiling.

u/AlphaMoose67 · 4 pointsr/smarthome

My suggestion would be to use wiremold amazon

What it looks like with Rift sensor in my house

u/vonkillbot · 4 pointsr/malelivingspace

Pro tip: don't worry one bit about people saying you need to get into your own place. The rental market is rough here in CA, student loans might be an issue and a higher value couldn't possibly be placed on savings. This isn't the midwest or the 70's, you're playing the cards as you see them. Good job.

Also hide those damn cables from the TV.

u/EmpireCityRay · 4 pointsr/malelivingspace

OP if you use this suggestion make sure that the extension chord is UL certified as you seem to use a lot of outlets. (I would go with a thick extension chord found at your Home Depot/Lowe's.) Finishing it off with this:

My suggestion would be get a [UL listed] surge protector and purchase and place it in this
My method would allow you to lessen the visibility of wires and with a desk and great chord management (snaking the wires behind the leg) you can make it look like you have no wires or outlet box. The scented air freshener should be moved IMO as it wouldn't work in the linked box, if you opt to keep it you can leave the biege tap box and it on it with another outlet in the tap box for the surge protector.

u/Lianad311 · 4 pointsr/hometheater

Yeah didn't mean any offense by any means. I just had a 55" and upgraded to a 65", but that just looked way smaller than I remember my 55 looking.

I've bought about 5 of these kits for throughout my place, but you only need a tiny piece so that may be overkill. They work great though and are paintable to match your wall if that's an issue.

u/radddchaddd · 4 pointsr/vinyl

I got these from Amazon. They work well although opening them up to add or remove cables can be a bit stiff.

Also, the planters are from Target. They come with fake plants, but I replaced them with actual succulents.

Also, a mouse bungee would do you wonders. That, or loosely Velcroing your mouse wire to your keyboard wire so they stay uniform. Oh, and you'd probably benefit from a headphone stand. Last things that comes to mind are a vesa mount for your monitors, an extended mouse pad, some LED's behind your desk and monitor, and perhaps finding another place to put your PC. You can always extend cables.

u/giggly_kisses · 4 pointsr/battlestations

Here are the parts I used:

  • cable raceway
  • cable clips
  • indoor mounting squares
  • velcro cable ties

    The cable raceway and the cable clips made the biggest difference. In the past I would just use the velcro strips, which would help with making the cables look more clean, but not with hiding them altogether.

    The process I used was:

  • unplug everything from your computer and lay them over your desk in straight lines so you can see all the cables you'll need to route.
  • find a good spot for the raceway leaving enough room for a power strip to sit behind it. I had to cut the raceway to fit my desk. Once it's sized correctly, stick it to the bottom of your desk.
  • Route a single wire at a time. I started with the wires coming from my monitor first since they were the furthest away from my tower. I also did the power cables last since they were the biggest and weren't being routed to the tower.
  • Once everything is routed in the raceway then start using the cable clips to make sure the cables follow the path cleanly.
  • Use the velcro strips to keep hanging wires together.

That's the 48" version but they make shorter ones. The stick-on tape on the back is surprisingly good, but if you're really going to weigh it down with heavier cables you may want to put some extra adhesive on the back. So far I love it.

u/SlightlyDan · 4 pointsr/battlestations

I recommend a cable management tray like this (one that fits your desk)
Desk Cable Organizer Tray 36" by WireRun

u/IzzuThug · 4 pointsr/battlestations

Don't let this hooligans fool ya. LED's are awesome, more screens the better. I'm not sure if you use that box as a foot stool but if not you should move it so you have room for your feet.

  1. As someone else said move the LED strip to the back of your desk.

  2. Again as someone else said move that one speaker to the correct side. However, you don't need to discard a monitor for that. Just put it behind where the monitors meet. So long as the speaker isn't covered too much it shouldn't hinder sound coming out of it. Heck, if you wanted you could lay the speaker on its side. I'm not much of an audiophile and don't have those speakers so your mileage may vary. Are those speakers hooked up to a stereo, computer, or maybe a DAC? If it's a DAC then you could easily mount that to the underside of the desk with some double sided tape or Velcro tape. I prefer Velcro tape myself.

  3. Once more, as someone said mount those headphone somewhere when you're not using them. Seems you have space to the left of your desk for that. If you like using that space yourself then you could just mount a holder on the underside of your desk. They're super cheap on Amazon, and anything like this will work fine.

  4. It's hard to see how much cable clutter you have. Best thing you can do is bundle as many cables together as possible. A good way to do this is with veclro ties. The more peripherals you get the more cables you have. Some will have their own power bricks and some will have cable length as if you were supposed to use the thing in another room. To deter this I would recommend cable trays to mount to the bottom of the desk. One other thing that can help for cable management is a cable sleeve which is helpful for tiding up those cables as they go to your PC.

  5. Basically mount anything and everything you can to the bottom of your desk to hide as much as possible from view.
u/ToxYixs · 4 pointsr/gamerooms

buy these .. 23 dolllars and will make room a ton better. Would also get one of these and put them on the top of ceiling. 40 bucks for a quick little makeover! Also would order more of those red and black "acoustic panels" and get like a 48 pack and fill in the holes on the wall you have! Hope this helps

u/privatexradio · 4 pointsr/minimalism

I use this cable raceway. Buy this raceway paired with the “frequently bought together” items at the bottom.

Buy a power strip if you don’t have one already and Velcro the power strip to the bottom of your desk. Docking stations help too.

u/korpo53 · 4 pointsr/homelab

They have that cable raceway stuff that sticks to the wall and you can run cables through. It certainly looks better than a bunch of blue cables everywhere.

Do be careful though, some of these have glue on the back that's strong enough to pull your paint off the walls when you try to remove it... use a heat gun or some goo gone or something to soften that first.

For going through doorways, if you have carpet, just pull it up a bit and cram cables under and around. If you don't have carpet, use a small drill to put a hole between the two rooms and a tiny bit of some kind of sealant to make it pretty. When you move out, pull the cable out and patch the hole.

u/_mutelight_ · 4 pointsr/hometheater

Looks great!

Since you asked for feedback (good man soliciting it BTW), I would get some cable raceways for the TV the hide those cables, perhaps toe in the fronts ever so slightly, if you have wiggle room on the bracket, drop the TV a few inches, then get some velcro zip ties for the cables to the right of the entertainment center to tidy that up.

EDIT Oh, one more thing, if you can, see if you can figure out a way to drop the DTV box and Xbox into the cabinet below and move the turntable over to the right side so you give your AVR room to breathe.

u/DinkaAnimalLover · 4 pointsr/Rabbits


In case you need any tips as a new bunny parent take a look at the little guide on care I assembled below . I really tried to include all the info a new bunny parent might want into this guide...

For wires

  1. Wire protectors that work well - these are quite chew proof and you just hide you cables inside - it makes things look nice and neat actually and you won't have another wire chewed.
  2. Also something like this is great if you can make it work in the space config you have... like along the baseboard or floor - I used these to hide my cords and make everything neat before a bun was ever in the picture even
  3. I have also seen people slit open a heavy duty garden hose and put the wires inside - works well

    Watch a few videos below for some more great tips - they are short and have good ideas for you


    If you wanted to secure the whole area than buying a metal xpen and setting up as a barrier would be a good option.
u/hyrumwhite · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

For the op, if you want to do this, get a punch saw, a couple low voltage mounts, and some cable pass through plates:

Trace the front (the wide part) of the low voltage mount on the wall, use the punch saw to cut about a quarter inch inside the trace and then screw in the mount. Put one mount behind the pc (won't need the pass through plate that way) and the other about 5 inches above your trim (or match other outlets). Make sure both are on the same side of the closest stud.

As long as you don't have fire blocks, it should be pretty easy. If you do, I'd say just get some of these unless you want to deal with plastering and drilling holes and stuff. Not worth it, imo.

Unless, of course, you're in an apartment and aren't allowed to mutilate your walls.

u/Vertisce · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I can tell you that THIS is literally what is used in that image because that image is what is used in the images on the sale page. I can further attest that these are absolutely amazing and worth every penny! Also...not expensive at all.

u/LlamasOnFire · 3 pointsr/battlestations

i'd route the cables in a straight line-ish pattern then get these to hide them.

u/LigerRider · 3 pointsr/audiophile

Alright then, here's mine in all its humble glory. Cables from tv, cd/dvd, and turntable are concealed within white snap-together cable/cord concealer (no power cords) along the baseboard. Otherwise everything is organized and secured with Velcro tie/straps behind the media console, and with the audio rack. The power cords are sorted, bound, and routed along the side of the rack to keep them separated from the low voltage cabling, which is routed through the holes in the center-back of the rack shelves, likewise Velcro tied, and wrapped with velcro/neoprene wrapper. It's not as end-game cable management as I'd like, but I'm still searching for that prefec solution.

u/SlicktopE36 · 3 pointsr/battlestations

since no one is giving suggestions on how to cable manage, ill help out.

use velcro straps to help run the cables along the posts going up the desk and entertainment center


use cable boxes for hiding power strips and excess cables


if you dont want to use the boxes and have them sit on the floor, you could mount the power strip under your desk using 3m adhesive tape.


use these raceways for routing cables up walls, and for the power strip cables that need to go from the wall plug to the power strip


and use these raceways to run the cables under the desk to your peripherals. cut them as needed to fit, or just make sure to leave gaps for the cables to leave the raceway and not sag

u/avramce · 3 pointsr/gamecollecting

As everyone said, immediate win would be zip-ties or velcro to manage the excess length, you can get a 100M spool of twist ties from a dollar store or homedepot or online. For the more permanent cables like the power cables, you can fix them to the back wall with wire channels, for the power bricks, you can free them from the powerstrip with either a power squid or a short extension cable. Lastly, for multiple cords that are going in the same direction or through the same hole on your entertainment center, consider a cable sleeve to clean up the look.

u/orcinovein · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace

This is a 100% improvement OP. The chair and the bigger sofa were the perfect change. The Ikea lamp ties in with the bigger furniture and doesn't feel so big and overwhelming like it did before. Extremely well done.

Couple more suggestions, I would route the rear speaker wires behind the painting too and then down the middle. Then use a cable cover that runs from the bottom of the art down behind the couch to conceal the cords. Purchase a couple of patterned/accent pillows and throws to add some color to the room and you're money.

u/lafferty_daniel · 3 pointsr/ultrawidemasterrace

I don't think it quite "spoils" it, that is a bit harsh. I think it looks great.

I would get some cable concealer, something like this. You probably don't need that much but it would be perfect for under the monitor. You don't need as much that is in the link I provided but I like to keep some around because it is very easy to cut them for other setups in the house.

u/DustinBraddock · 3 pointsr/parentsofmultiples

We use it too and are happy with it. The monitor can be set to switch between the cameras (up to 4).
When ours moved to their own room, we mounted the two cameras to the wall, one facing down into each crib. The cables are covered with something like this

BTW if you do buy it and the battery seems to stop holding a charge, just take it out for 20-30 minutes and put it back. Usually that fixes it.

u/deathtogamon123 · 3 pointsr/mancave

They have these things that just stick to your wall to hide cables. I use them for everything.

A few have said it; but you can get wall cable runs that allow you to paint them or match to current wall color with standard colors. Amazon; D-Line Cable Raceway


There are various kinds too; cable raceway would be a key word to use.

Passthrough wallplates and fishing it through the wall. Note that if you go this route you'll likely not meet local firecodes if you send the power cable through it.

u/TJ_MediaDesign · 3 pointsr/battlestations

that box on the first image is a cable management box made out of spare trim and if u can see that is cable trunking running to an outlet with an extension cable to the left side of my room

u/gp_aaron · 3 pointsr/HomeNetworking

If surface run is required and staples are not an option, we frequently use stick on cable conduit. We tend to use NiceDuct brand stuff that works well enough if you clean the area of the wall with the included alcohol pads before affixing the attached two sided tape. This stuff looks like so:, the small one will easily hold 1 Cat6 loosely or 2-3 Cat5e depending on cable thickness.

We get ours from a supplier but here are some similar ones I found with a quick Amazon search;

u/NativityCrimeScene · 3 pointsr/sonos

Here you go. I have a Play:1 mounted above the shower in my bathroom and another Play:1 mounted in the corner of my bedroom in addition to other Sonos around my house that aren't mounted.

I used Flexson wall mounts to mount them and then Wiremold CordMate kits to run the power cables. I actually used an extension cable so that it would be long enough and then have the Sonos power cable hidden.

u/dwarfman367 · 3 pointsr/cableadvice

This is complete overkill (the specific link) Look for items that are under amazon search term "Cable Raceways"
Some of them are simple channels with a foam-tape type thing to stick to the walls. Similar to this

u/ldd62 · 3 pointsr/hometheater

Looks great, but how about a little CordMate down along the trim for those subwoofer cables!

u/Lagomorphilic · 3 pointsr/Rabbits

I don't have too much experience with wire coverings, so hopefully someone more experienced will chime in, but as I see it, the type you mentioned are to essentially give you enough time to stop them eating it. It doesn't totally prevent them from eating through it, especially if they are determined. If you are planing on supervising, then wire covers would work perfectly, but if you are hoping to do free reign without supervision sometimes, then you may want to think of a different solution. Perhaps in addition to the wire covers, you could also move them up out of the way or block off areas with wires. I have my alarm clock wire strung through my bedroom door that lads to my bathroom so its a few feet off the ground, and my fish tank cords I just recently wrapped around the leg of my desk so it's high up off the ground (and looks interesting design wise). You could also just put a pen or cardboard fence over the area so the bunny can't get to it in the first place.

As for your actual question, I was googling it, and this website came up. It seems pretty accurate in terms of rabbit proofing. I found this link at the bottom of the page. perhaps that would work for you?

There is also this that I found, which seems much less abrasive then the other kind as it is smooth.

If you want something permanent that they actually can't chew through, I have seen pictures of people using pvc piping and running it around their house with the wires inside.

u/subtract30 · 3 pointsr/battlestations

I just bought a cheapo wall mount from Best Buy when I wanted to wall mount my monitor and it worked great. Fortunately, monitors that support wall mounting all follow the same VESA standard that TV's follow, so you can buy any TV/"Display" wall mount that has a range support for your monitor size (generally, VESA wall mounts will say '24"-40"', '42"-60"' etc.) and bolt it in!

From there it depends on if you want one that is static, or if you want one that tilts up and down, or one that moves forward/back/left/right. You can also get an arm that attaches to your desk and has a VESA mount on the back.

Tons of options, really just boils down to the features that you want. As far as quality goes, I'd look at reviews to be sure but after mounting 4 TV's and One monitor in my lifetime, I've never had a wall mount break or fall off the wall - just make sure you follow the directions on the box.

The one thing I 100% recommend is to drill pilot holes. Absolutely do it. It may sound unnecessary but I guarantee you it is completely worth the time in case there's something in the wall that prevents you from putting in the lag bolts, also an extra measure of precaution against cracking your stud. Easy to do, only takes a couple extra minutes, and can save you some major headaches.

Also I'm offering all this information on the pretense that you haven't wall mounted anything before.

TL;DR: Go on Amazon (or your local electronics store if you're impatient/OK with spending more money) and find a mount/monitor arm with the features you like that supports a 34" display. Also make sure to drill pilot holes.

For cable management in the context of cables going to your monitor, you have 2 options: Either a cable cover or running them through the wall. I've done both- when I lived in an apartment, I did a cable cover because I didn't want to carve out a hole in the wall in a rental, but in my house I ran them through the wall. The cable cover is super easy because it's just a piece of soft plastic that either bolts or adheres to the wall, you run the cables through it, slide on the plastic cover and bam, done. Looks super clean.

Running the cables through the wall isn't much more difficult- took maybe about 30-45 minutes to complete. The best way to do it is to get a drywall saw, some brush plates from a hardware store, and cut a hole to the dimensions of the brush plate. The brush plates are nice because when all is said and done you don't have an ugly, open hole in the wall, instead you have something that resembles a wall socket or a lightswitch (brush plates are the same dimensions), and the receptacle part of the brush plate that goes in the wall generally has a hook to keep your cables from getting stuck in the wall if/when you disconnect them.

Sorry if this is information overload/stuff you already know lol, I like to help others when I'm knowledgeable on the subject.

u/icehands · 3 pointsr/DIY

Depends if you have Prime and need it ASAP. That's the only time I'll forgo my platinum discount.

Those Monoprice raceways are pretty crappy - I have bunch for cheap network drops. They don't hold well if you stuff them full.
Personally I have this on my wall:

u/WretchedLocket · 3 pointsr/hometheater

> I think it’s just PVC

It's actually a product designed to hide wire. There is an adhesive side and slit. Stick it your wall and push the wire through the slit. If you're in the US, Lowe's and Home Depot carry it. And, as always, on Amazon as well

u/wachu · 3 pointsr/HomeNetworking

How about using some sort of stick-on plastic raceway to run your cable up the wall and around the corner?

Selected at random as an example:

That would look a little more finished and wouldn't be too much of a project.

u/lamplamp3 · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace
u/Nostrildumbass · 3 pointsr/oculus

Define damage. Damage as in make holes that you'll need to patch? Or do you consider something as minor as pulling paint that you have to touch up damage?


I use this to mount my sensors:


This to run the wires for the sensors (and my ethernet + bookshelf speakers)


And I used to use these until I went wireless:

u/uppastbedtime · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Just to add to this, the simple step is to protect the cords, like /u/Yoko042684 mentioned. Raise the cables off the floor and put them in some kind of cable raceway that will also cover corners and turns, like this set.

Benefits to this method is it will be much harder for the rats to chew on the cables. Also a raceway will eliminate cable clutter on the floor and clear up a tripping hazard as well.

u/BranMuffins4Life · 3 pointsr/hometheater

Dad of a young kid here: these do an excellent job of hiding cables from babies, and tidy up the look of the room at the same time:

Add in wall mounts (assuming you don’t have floorstanding speakers) and you have a reasonably baby proof setup

u/ItsDeke · 3 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

The wall conduit way is the best looking for sure (and really isn't very difficult), but if you're renting and cutting a hole in the drywall isn't an option, just running the chords through one of those plastic wire concealment tracks will tidy things up a lot.

Something like this (although you could probably use a smaller cheaper kit since you would t need much):

u/Bumblebee__Tuna · 3 pointsr/battlestations

For cable management, check these out. Alongside zip-ties, they helped me out a ton. And that monitor is big enough to wall mount. If you do that, get some cable organizers for the wall. Something like this.

u/dystra · 3 pointsr/DIY

i would just go with something like this running to the back wall.
Then a couple of these run to the outlets.
I know you said you didnt want cables across the floor but other than installing sockets in the floor or hanging them from the ceiling...not a lot of options.

I think going in wall is always the best look but if that's not an option I've used this wire hider in my room and then painted over it and it does look pretty good.

I have a fan white noise, and monitor plugged in. I keep cords tidy by running them through a cord hider thing? This on Amazon

Wiremold CMK50 Cord Mate II Kit

I also use one of those bulky child proof plug things for the essentials- baby monitor, so she can't ever unplug it. I suppose she could unplug her fan or light but the sockets are baby proof ones that just close if you unplug something.

I have her bed, a few baby safe toys, books, etc. an ikea storage cube thing that is typically used as a room divider but we lay them on their sides for the kids. It also hides the plugs where stuff is plugged in. Make sense?

Take out non critical. Mount anything you are worried about. Keep the rocking chair and stuff. You'll need it. Shoot it's 1:30 am here and I'm rocking her back down (cutting eye teeth and bronchitis yay)

u/JohnBooty · 3 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

I feel ya. Yeah, ditch the zip ties forever, that's the worst strategy.

You can stick these on the back of your furniture and cleanly route your cables down the legs and such:

You could also try something like this, if it's not too thick for your furniture. It looks ugly from the back, but who cares. I believe it's designed to be easily trimmed to fit your needs.

Or just use those velcro cable wraps =)

u/IanPPK · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Velcro One Wrap and a cable tunnel will help you plenty. If you want to go a little overkill, a surge protector enclosure will help keep the electronics without a converter brick a little more organized. The former two things should do more than enough if you organize it well.

u/Cike176 · 3 pointsr/DIY

Here's two things I use that really helped mine out

Cable raceway and one of these

u/Ghh0st · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Cable management! Get some cable runners to attach to the bottom of the desk to cleanup the cables running under / behind the desk.

[Cable Raceway] (

u/Michaelthebe · 3 pointsr/CableManagement

You could use something like this buy as many as you want since I don't know how long your desk is.

u/TootsNYC · 3 pointsr/organization

LABELING: I label the plug ends of every plug (I often use a P-touch labeler, either by wrapping it around the plug itself or by wrapping it around the cord right next to the plug. (if the other end is also a plug, like HDMI cables, it gets labeled as well)


That way I can tell before I unplug them which is which.


BUNDLING: I sometimes will fold a cord back on itself and then bundle it. Either with a cable tie, or with those double-sided hook-and-loop (Velcro) cable ties.

That takes up the slack and keeps lots of loose cord from flopping around and getting tangles.

Plan your bundles so that the bundle itself falls where you want it; my vote is just a little bit below the underside of the desk (so your blue cord should rise straight up to the desk, and then bundled once it gets there)

You can get cable-tie anchors (Home Depot, Amazon, probably any electronics store) to attach to the underside of the desk (they are stick-on, but there are ones you can drive a screw through the center, or nail in from the sides), and then loop your cable tie through it to hold the cable in place.


BASKET: There are also under-desk baskets that you can lay the bundled cables in. I've seen people get those white wire baskets for flatware (or a wire dishrack, or under-shelf basket) from the kitchen store, and use cup hooks to attach it.

But there are pro versions. This one attaches to the side of the desk; this one hooks over the back of the desk; this one is screwed to the underside of the desk. Amazon has lots of different styles, including some that are solid instead of wires, though since wires can get warm, this wouldn't be good unless it's got decent airflow (like the one at the link.

These will let you ease the strain on the plugs and also let you lay the bundles of wires in them to keep them contained.



RACEWAYS or CORD COVERS: A raceway is a plastic or metal channel that the cord can lie in; some of them will hold more than one cord. They're especially useful if the cord will be exposed and unsightly, or exposed and vulnerable (to being stepped on, or snagged or even just likely to flop around) There are stick-on ones, but you can attach some with screws and nails. Home Depot has some, and of course online places.

The blue cord could go in a raceway up toward the desk, then be bundled and the bundle placed in an under-desk basket/shelf.


Here's an interesting kit. But it might require dismantling what you have, which is annoying. Installing a basket under the desk to place the bundles of excess cord in is probably easier.

u/martinjt86 · 3 pointsr/AskBattlestations

Get a wire tray to put under your desk!

Like this one

u/Geedunk · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Leave a little space between your desk and the wall and either get a cable tray or check and see if your surge protector has slots on the bottom that you can use to hang it off screws.

Braided sleeving and velco strips will work wonders, or use a combination of the two depending on how much you have to deal with. It's on you to hide all of it behind your monitor stand for minimal appearance, but with a little work it'll look great!

u/omgsalmon · 3 pointsr/battlestations
u/C_64 · 2 pointsr/oculus

Oh, I'd love white sensors - it'd be a much better match for most homes.

Given that I'm in an apartment, I'm just not willing to take the risk + effort running the cords behind the wall. But now that I'm pretty certain I've got the final location for my sensors set, I can consider using cord covers to hide them. Like these things:

u/LeifCarrotson · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

That does make it harder...

Something like this:
is probably available at your local hardware or big box store.

u/The_EA_Nazi · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Ahhhhh OP. My eyes.

Ok, so here's my advice as I just went through something similar recently. I had to run a Cat6a cable into my room as I wasn't getting the speeds I wanted over wifi because the walls in my apartment are plaster so it cuts the speed like 50%.

There are some great tools out there that I think could help you manage the cabling in the room, but there are also some simpler tricks as well.

You have a ton of empty space on the bottom of your tv stand. There's a few options you could go here. You could get some nice wooden or storage inserts like [these] ( but bigger. I cant remember exactly where I got mine from but I believe it was Bed Bath and Beyond, they're more square and slightly bigger. There's a ton of options for those, that way you fill that empty space with usable storage, which will also help you hide the wires behind the tv stand.

The other recommendation I have to go with that is a power strip on the floor behind those storage boxes, that way everything can plug into the strip, and only one plug will need to run to the wall outlet rather then multiple.

If you didn't want to go that way, there are these super useful adhesive cable organizers that I used for my Cat cables. Now I'd recommend measuring beforehand, the length you need, and also how thick your cables are so you can figure out how big of an organizer you'll need.

But these are the ones I used:

These should be ok, but again make sure you double check if you need a thicker one. The great thing about these is that they can be painted to match your wall, personally I just stuck them on the molding near the floor so it looks like it's a part of it.

It definitely doesn't look that unorganized, and personally, I think your easiest fix would be putting some organizers under the tv stand so it blocks the view of all those cables. Because you don't have a ton of cables to begin with either, just an amp, tv, and playstation and a cable running from the left side as well.

u/ZenithPrime · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Looks ok but gluing wires to anything would give me anxiety. Not to mention if one falls off the glue, you have to get the whole glue gun set up back out, plug it in, wait for to heat up, and glue it back. I'd recommend something like this.

u/chadspdx · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

This stuff works awesome. Comes in a variety of sizes and a few colors. You can hide all the cables and still pull slack out when you need to easily. Just screw it up to the bottom side of the shelve.

I know there are these little floor cable covers that conceal cables while having a nice design. I honestly forget the name of them.

Maybe sometime like this? A different color perhaps? Or PVC pipe?

u/miken77386 · 2 pointsr/DIY

If you don't end up being able to go into the wall to hide cables you could try a paintable cable hider...not as pretty as putting them in the wall but kind of the next best thing...can be a good temporary solution...something like this

u/mz-s · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

If you don't want to run a new outlet behind the TV, get one of those cable raceways ( is an example) to run the cables down the wall. These can be painted to match your wall and aren't super visible once painted.

u/graydoubt · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I suggest some type of wiremold. Home depot, etc. generally have them as well. There are all kinds of types. Some of them stick to the wall with tape and snap apart after installing, so you can always pop them open to change your cable setup, etc.

I painted mine the color of my wall and it blends very nicely.

u/nubgrub · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I second this. What /u/team_xbladz linked is pretty good, especially for the price (I use a white version for my wires). A bit more expensive are [plastic sleeves] ( It would probably cost $60-90 though to do your whole room. You could paint them the color of what you need as well. Lowes and HomeDepot usually have a good selection of cable hiders. They look pretty good when set up, especially if you match them with the base board color.

u/Bmic31 · 2 pointsr/HomeNetworking

While in wall is preferred, I would recommend wall runners for amateur work that still looks nice. You could potentially drill through the floor in a corner and run it up to another hole in the ceiling to the 2nd floor. A lot less frustration and skill needed.

I use some larger ones to run HDMI and Ethernet cord up to my TV and no one even notices the wall conduit unless I mention it to them. They are invisible in plain sight and I really like them for simple applications.

u/MjolnirVIII · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace
u/the_purple_piper · 2 pointsr/howto

if you are going to use tape, use gaffers tape. that's exactly what it is made for. otherwise, you can use an adhesive backed wire enclosure.

u/nmezib · 2 pointsr/Vive

To keep the room looking tidy, I highly recommend wire channels like this one:

They're easily found in hardware stores (at least in the US). They do a great job sticking permanently, and you can paint over them.

u/keep_on_churning · 2 pointsr/InteriorDesign

I would get a smaller couch, then move that black chair to sit next to it at an angle. Once you do that, you’ll have some space to move that lamp out from the corner a bit.

Speaking of, what does that blue cord go to? The lamp? I assume there isn’t a plug in the corner, so I’d recommend getting some white raceways to hide the cable running over there. (

Paint the frame around the AC white, and clean it!

Then, plants in pots and open the blinds. Let that natural light in. :)

u/drtonmeister · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I'd be pretty upset with that. You could order the Lutron power-panel kit:

I'm betting the barrel plugs are the most common 2.1mm x 5.5mm size used for security cameras. If that is so, there is lots of stuff available to run several from one power-supply, for example this multi-barrel-connector power supply kit with a few of these power extensions. There are also similar things for 12V Christmas lighting that are more likely to be white cables.

I'd also use a raceway kit to conceal the cables.

The Lutron kit sure looks like a standard multicamera power supply for security cameras.

u/Robert315 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I don't really agree with the Grey schedule40 suggestion for low voltage speaker wire or HDMI. I would just use some inexpensive wiremold in the ceiling corners.

u/meat_bunny · 2 pointsr/HomeNetworking

Why not just get some cable covers? They are actually designed to be painted over.

u/Dani31_5p00n · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

these cable ties could be put to good use. You can use them to wrap the HDMI cords to the back of the poles that hold the monitors. As for the cords bellow the desk, you can wrap them all together with a tie or get something like this to run along the wall.

u/ColonelCoconuts · 2 pointsr/DIY

I know it's still a WIP, but if you weren't already planning on it, I would attach a small basket to the underside of the desk with enough room to fit your extension cord, router, etc. Then use a wire cover to run the cord along your wall and into the outlet.

u/vatothe0 · 2 pointsr/sonos

Here's one.

It's a fairly common product that you can probably get at a hardware store locally though. Paint it the same color as the wall and it's pretty discrete.

You could also use wiremold if you only have one or two wires that need cover.

u/E-werd · 2 pointsr/cableadvice

This is a tough one because you have a glass desktop. I think the best option would be cable raceway. You can get a kit something like this. Here is a better explanation of what it actually is.

Keep the visible bundle relatively tight and the pathway deliberate. You would probably have to find a way to lengthen the cables to make this work.

u/RojoXIII · 2 pointsr/headphones

Looks amazing.

Off Topic: love what you did to your walls but all them wires scattered everywhere kills it for me. You should look into purchasing some wire channels so you can hide them.

u/johnrose81 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

This is what he told me:

>I've bought about 5 of these kits for throughout my place, but you only need a tiny piece so that may be overkill. They work great though and are paintable to match your wall if that's an issue.

u/Zaouron · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Looks good. Only suggestion would be to grab some Cable Channel molding to clean up the power and video cables for the projector.

u/Goonshine · 2 pointsr/wireless

While I agree that running a cable is the best plan it can also be unsightly or a pain to deal with. Especially if you need to open up holes in the home to get it run correctly. If you are needing to punch through drywall, open holes from the exterior to the interior, or drill through any supports then you might want to talk to a contractor instead of doing it yourself. If it looks like you can run a cable through some existing space in your house though then go for it.

One other thing you can try that won't cost you much is to move the wireless router to a more central location. This might get you what you need, though if the walls are concrete then maybe not.

When cabling in the interior you can use cable ducts and runs to keep the cable safe, and minimize the eyesore it will make. See an example here.

Powerline adapter is also a straightforward choice that uses the power cables already available in your house, so look into that if you can.

u/savagealchemist · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Maybe something like this ?

u/thatgermanperson · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Exterior cable management would be fine with duct tape IMO. You could also use things like this or this or this or this

u/mikeee404 · 2 pointsr/HomeNetworking

Maybe cable raceways held up with command strips so you don't damage the wall removing them later. A J-channel would be good for multiple cables

u/olbaze · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

IKEA's Bekant is a popular desk that comes with a cable management net. You can also buy cable channels and cable socks for organizing bundles of cables.

Personally, I just use lots of velcro to bundle cables and zipties to route them via the legs of my table.

u/Ravahan · 2 pointsr/battlestations

you could put somethine like this, on top of the shelving unit and run the cables through it, will hide them pretty decent i think
hope it helps

u/BaldGuy_ · 2 pointsr/battlestations

They work great! Although, I don't believe I put too much research into the alternatives. :D

u/AsterixGM · 2 pointsr/headphones
u/sonsofaureus · 2 pointsr/AskBattlestations

If your desk allows, I think cable runways are pretty good for hiding wires below the desk. Velcro cable ties are also nice.

u/lovetape · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

> organize the wires

Do you mean inside the case, or outside?

For outside, I use a J-channel cable tray - works wonders.

For inside? Too many factors for an easy answer, but yes cable management matters, it affects cooling.

u/Megachair42 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

In my experience any fully enclosed cable management option becomes a bigger pain than it's worth once you need to move something or upgrade. I really like the basket style design, like that Ikea cable holder.

I have this attached to the back of my desk ( It's a thick plastic, so I ended up using a dremel to cut away the top section. This way it is more of a simple U shape and the cables aren't fully enclosed.

I also use velcro to mount power strips directly to the bottom of my desk. Helps keep cables out of sight.

u/condor57 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

stick one of these on the back. Beyond that you'll just have to get creative. Search "cable management" on amazon. bunch of handy stuff on there..

u/LouGossetJr · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

cool man. in your situation, a little cable management will go a long way. get yourself some black zip ties and these thingies and go to town!

u/t3ht0ast3r · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Get yourself a cable raceway, here's a link to a nice and affordable one on Amazon.

It attaches to the back of your desk via adhesive. Just route all those dangling cables through it and off to one side and you're golden. You may have to cut it to size, but it's just made of thin PVC. If you don't have a saw handy then a kitchen knife could honestly probably work in a pinch.

u/wolf39us · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

A couple of days ago I posted my battlestation and it was pointed out that I should PROBABLY get some zip ties lol.

So I bought This and went at it for about an hour.

Added a few zipties, and velcro ties and this is what I've got. It's not perfect but it'll do for now!

u/TofuTacos · 2 pointsr/CableManagement

My setup looked very similar to this, I used this on the back of the table to route the wires to the side and use cable ties. I had to get longer power cables for my monitors and some longer hdmi cables.

put monitors on one side, tower on the other. Or put the monitors on one side, tower in the middle, and controllers/headset/mic/etc. on the other side. I'm using these to hold power strips, it's only going to work for the long skinny ones though. IKEA has one that can hold a wider variety of sizes. Based on the shadow and graininess of the pic I am guessing you only have a ceiling light? You could add a lamp on one side and one of these on the other. If you want to continue with the green color scheme, you could get one of these orb things and an rgb led strip

u/pork-belly · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

-cable tray(s) $22 - perfect for screwing into a think desk like yours, power strips can live in here as well

Nice setup. Foot warmer could use some RGB tho

u/GaveUpMyGold · 2 pointsr/battlestations

These little trays are even better. Easy to install with a standard drill, and they'll hold a surge protector and all the plugs.

> So is there a way I can use either battery pack to power the christmas lights? I guess some sort of transformer that accepts a USB 2.0 input of 5V/1-2.5A and outputs 6V/6A

Can't be done.

Assuming that the 6V/6A input on the lights represents actual power consumption, that's 36 Watts, and your chargers only output 10 to 12.5 Watts.

Whenever you step up Voltage, you also step down Current, and vice versa, so that the total Power (Voltage times Current) remains the same (minus efficiency losses).

5 Volts at 2 - 2.5 Amps might light the LED string, it would be dimmer than normal but the bigger problem is that it could damage the battery pack (depending on how the battery pack handles excess draw).

For some perspective, this $74 20V/5Ah battery would give you a little over 2 hours of run time, after converting down to 6 Volts.

You could paint the cord to match the wall, to make it look less conspicuous, or decorate it with a cable raceway.

If the DC side of your light's power supply is long enough you could make a small hole in the wall behind the painting, and another one directly below it and behind the couch, fish the DC cord of the power supply through it, and plug it in; optionally you could use AV wall plates where the cable passes into and out of the wall. Just don't run any 120 Volt cords through the wall.

Nice looking wall, by the way.

Cables generally should be protected but your rabbit might not even be interested. Usually if they can’t see something they won’t care about it. Your 3D printer and larger pieces of plastic are generally safe. Rabbits like to find small threads and pull at them so big chunks of plastic and glass don’t really do it for them. In general cable management is good practice and satisfying. I hate the look of the rubber hose sleeves so I keep everything in cable runners and boxes. If I’m not using it then I tuck it away.

If it is solid cinderblock or brick, then no, not really. Even if it was a stick-framed wall, it would be FAR easier to buy some wire hider track. I'm not sure what the proper name is, but it looks like half of a small pvc pipe that you can stick to the wall and run cables through.

Def recommend getting a larger mousepad. Maybe one like this:

You should also utilize the space on that desk a little better by moving your case further right. It’ll give you room to mount, or at least stand those speakers up correctly. Also a headset stand would go a long way.

Another thing that could help improve your setup is cleaning up those cables strewn across your desk. You can do this easily by using something like this:

Cord concealer is another option, I use this to hide the cables for surrounds and anywhere else. You can run it just above the floorboards. Try pulling a bit from the corner of the carpet.

u/zilla0100 · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

The easy solution would just be a box and a sticky back wire trough. It isnt as pretty as some more intrusive fixes but it would be easy and cheap and look around 300% more professional.

Put all the splices in a box with a blank face and have the wires come out straight into the wire trough that sticks to the wall until they dive back into the drywall. The troughs even come with 90's to do the turn.

Something like this,

you can get them in different colors. I use white to conceal my VR setup base station power cables.

Or you could start cutting open the drywall to put the cables in and patch it up. You'll still probably need a box to access those connections though, I'm not sure what code is for that stuff.

u/eizdeb · 2 pointsr/DeskCableManagement

I used these cable raceways which come with their own adhesive on the back.

u/sneckste · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I just did a similar project. You can clean up the loop by cinching them with reusable zip ties or Velcro ties. Then you can go further by concealing them with cable management tubing. In addition to the black stuff people have posted, there is also the flat raceways that can be stuck to the wall. This is an example but they have larger ones. Link

This will keep the hands away. But if you’re more worried about the electronics themselves, you can find baby gates or screens to cover the opening. I wouldn’t board up the area unless you felt secure there was enough ventilation. In my house, that was a concern because my boxes get plenty hot.

u/J0hnnykarate · 1 pointr/battlestations

if there is enough slack, try running the cable up in a single line rather than 2. The best answer would be to drill a hole and run it behind the wall but that sometimes isnt an option. Also this

never seen one 'fool' proof. When you got people swearing by them you have someone that hasn't been screwed by one yet lol.

sure sure.. some of that could be user error.. but if you make a user error on something like this you don't have to re-run the whole cable.

plus tacking something down on a wall looks kinda well aweful where as something like this looks pretty good when done decently.. but more work.

You can always get those cord raceway kits at Home Depot/Lowe’s or and just run them against the wall or floor.

u/HowDoIDoFinances · 1 pointr/oculus

Opposite corners, up as high as you can, so they're looking down at you seems to work best if you want 360 coverage with 2 sensors. Unfortunately, that'll probably require you to get extension cables, but they aren't that expensive. The front facing setup that Oculus recommends is really fast and really easy, but losing the ability to turn around in VR really hurts the experience, imo.

If you are able to buy a couple extension cables, I'd really consider trying to get them all the way up in a top corner of the room. You may want to consider a third sensor if you really want to go full room scale, too. I have three sensors mounted up high in 3 out of the 4 corners of my room (2 in front, one in back) and tracking is essentially flawless. It's a little bit of extra work to actually mount something to the wall, but it's worth it if you're setting it up for the long run. I used these mounts.

Having extension cables also gives you extra room to work with so that you can properly route the cables in a neat way instead of having them just hanging loose on the wall. I bought some cable concealers and they pretty much blend into the wall, so you really just see the sensor itself. Looks a lot nicer.

u/seevee_kuku · 1 pointr/HomeNetworking

You're going to have a hard time finding a dog-proof cable. If you want to deal with the problem at hand, you might want to look at something like this in addition to whatever cable you go with.

u/hockeythug · 1 pointr/HomeNetworking

I was just talking about for example some raceway like this to hide the exposed areas.

u/nemesisinphilly · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I have a cable in a concealer strip something like this running along quarter round molding on an offwhite wall. The tape would blend the concealer strip and the quarter round covering up any gaps. I then want to paint the white tape the same off-white color as wall making everything blend together.

u/iammabanana · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Use your 25' then use an in-line HDMI amp for another 25'. Then hide it all in wire mould.

u/driverofcar · 1 pointr/virtualreality

It's more of a permanent setup, but what I did was use this:

I have a staple gun that stapled the plastic runs to the wall. I tried to find some tape that matched my walls and didn't leave residue, but I couldn't find anything that didn't look trashy.

You could also just use a decent staple gun and staple the cables neatly (without putting pressure on the cables) along the wall to route along the baseboards.

u/texasauras · 1 pointr/Vive

in my last place, i used a cable concealer from amazon. did the job pretty well. in my current place, i found a couple of spots with existing power that i use, so i kinda lucked out there.

u/neonturbo · 1 pointr/smarthome

How about Wiremold raceway instead? They make a sticky back version and you could paint it to match. This is one example, but they make other sizes, styles, and colors.

u/chrisms150 · 1 pointr/hometheater

something like that would do it - and blend in decently to the wall (note - that shit looks over priced AF; find cheaper shit). But the only really good way to hide it would be through the wall.

u/verbify · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

A staple gun can help you tie it to the wall in a non-obtrusive way. You can also use a cable concealer - like this

u/notusknot · 1 pointr/desksetup

I thought about those clips, but decided against them for two reasons:

  1. I have more than just one cable so I don't know if the clip would hold both
  2. It would still leave the cables revealed, which i'm not all that fond of

    So instead, I thought of using this. Thoughts?
u/biceps2spare · 1 pointr/battlestations

I cut a few holes in the walls to run the cables and power.

Run this on the back of the "desk"

And because I couldn't run cable from left to right behind the wall because of studs I use this to at least control the wires on the wall.

u/nexusxis · 1 pointr/Workspaces

Maybe something like these cable channels/raceways? Less elegant looking but more heavy duty option: those long rubber "J"-shaped cable channels like these ones.

FWIW, I always have my desk against a wall and use this IKEA SIGNUM cable tray screwed into the bottom of my desk so I'm not exactly an expert in cable management.

u/BassheadGamer · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

Dang. These are the ones I have in my cart: for power strip, for my cable slack. I’m gonna be using command Velcro strips to hold everything in place. Zip tie/mounts to lead cables where they should go.

u/scherlock79 · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

Look up “J channel”, this stuff!, it also means cables can come out cleanly where needed.

u/booselordius · 1 pointr/battlestations

Happy cake day! Yea that’s sick set up! His cable management would be a super simple thing to fix to be honest.

You could suggest this link to him. There’s a couple other things to use but those would be a good start no doubt[J Channel Desk Cable Organizer] (

u/texasflip · 1 pointr/StandingDesks

I use a mix of Velcro ties and cable clips, but these cable organizers do all the heavy lifting.

I also use this mountable power strip so there is only one cable leading down to the outlet.

Finally, I have 2 grommets in my desktop, so I have 2 of these to provide easy access for powering accessories.

u/zorrodude · 1 pointr/battlestations

There's a lot of zip ties and several of these mounted behind the desk and underneath the glass.

Stick this under your table and route your cables through them.

u/retroflex101 · 1 pointr/MagicMirror

Or if you never plan on moving it, have an electrician install a socket behind the mirror. Or recess the entire frame into the wall :)

u/dospaquetes · 1 pointr/simracing

Dude Hide your TV cables, it would make your setup so much classier

u/akahyped · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

I also live in a small room so I know the struggle. If you can get a couple easy install shelves on each side of the jersey and put your trophies on there it would look really nice and free up bunch of space from the cabinet (which is definitely too big for that room), you'd be able to move your couch all the way over.


Also couple cable runners for the TV and maybe the LEDS. Also maybe an area rug (got mine for $20 at Walmart) Bam 5x better than most college dorms!


Edit: Didn't notice the door there at first so you wont be able to push the couch over anyways.. Hmm, maybe consider putting the bed in-front of the window instead (fame looks quite girthy though!) And put the couch where the bed is now? Would be some work and the TV wouldn't be in-front of the bed (unless you moved it to the door wall) but I feel like that would be the most open layout if that's your thing.

u/gummibear049 · 1 pointr/AskTechnology

There are products out there to help conceal your wires.

u/iMremedyz · 1 pointr/gamerooms

I drilled some holes in the walls and ran the cables, but that can be kind of expensive if you don't already have the tools (Here's a video if your curious ).

But this isn't always necessary. Here's another video

u/DoomRyGuy · 1 pointr/DeskCableManagement

Based on what I can see in your picture, it looks like you could probably benefit most from using a Raceway. With it you should be able to channel all of your cables in one direction. Meaning starting from your rig, up the right desk leg and straight across underneath the desk. Should give you a much cleaner look.

u/xnlagsx8 · 1 pointr/DeskCableManagement

Absolutely, these are the ones that I used:

They come with 9 which is more than you'll ever need, and they have a side with 3m adhesive so you can just stick them on furniture, walls, etc.

I also used these:

To stick my power bricks and power strips to the top of my desk

u/the_slate · 1 pointr/Ubiquiti

Would you be able to run Ethernet to the wall and run a drop there?

Here’s my proposition:

You get an HD pro, or one of the other APs that have an output, ceiling mount that then run Ethernet across the drop ceiling to the wall. You can go behind the wall ideally, but if not, just run Ethernet down the wall in a raceway like this:

Then put a switch. This is how I’d do it.

u/MountainManGuy · 1 pointr/battlestations

Eh, it's not that hard when you have such few pieces of equipment that OP has. 2 speakers, 1 monitor, and a desktop. Those are the only wires he has to hide.


Mouse and keyboard are wireless, he doesn't have an xlr mic or desk mic, doesn't have a second or third monitor, doesn't have surround sound, doesn't have a UPS, doesn't have an electric desk, etc.. This is all when it starts getting difficult to properly hide the wires.


You'd be surprised how easy it is to hide a few wires if you get a couple of these.

u/koriar · 1 pointr/truegaming

Mesh networks are good, but yeah nothing beats getting a house properly wired.

I live in an old farmhouse, so I definitely get wiring complications. If you can't run it under a carpet/rug/baseboard/etc then the best solution I've found is to use cable channels like this: and just stick them to the wall/ceiling...

That said, I currently have a projector that has all the wiring held to the wall/ceiling via 3M hooks, so I'm not exactly the most stylistic when it comes to design.

u/mike2048 · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

Not bad, stand does not look too heavy to move away from the wall in case you need to make changes. Pro-tips (used to wire AV racks):

  • Whenever possible use velcro instead of zipties
  • Label your cables on each end with a number / letter
  • Use a raceway to manage a large number of cables

    I Like the stand design, works nicely for multiple systems. You can add a metal angle right behind the top trim piece to take out the sag.
u/Quasmo · 1 pointr/cableporn

I have a surface dock, a netgear 8 port switch, 4 port USB switcher, and power strip. I screwed each side of a zip tie to hold up the power supplies. I have plans to add an hdbaset reciever.

u/vexlit · 1 pointr/battlestations

Of course :) I recently bought these: and find them quite useful but I don't know if they're available outside the UK. One thing to bear in mind is to make sure if you have a wired headset or mouse that it has enough space. I solved this by letting my headset cord loose behind the drawers and it's working really well so far!

u/CasualEjaculator · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

If you don’t wanna break the drywall and run your cords through the wall, try some some of these. They work well and look very clean. I used them for my wall mounted tv in my house and it looks great.

u/forgottenpassword778 · 1 pointr/homeautomation

The easiest solution would be to daisy chain the shelves together, and use some cable races ways to hide the wires between the shelves. You can then use any of the bagillion, or so, wifi plugs that work with Alexa to power them.

u/pawelmwo · 1 pointr/OLED

Not bad now look into a cable concealer and clean up those cables. Should be fairly cheap and it will look a lot nicer.

u/21541215415 · 1 pointr/CableManagement

Hum, is your "tower of power" coming down from the ceiling (like you see with cubicle clusters)? Or do you have a stand alone tower that simply sits upright on the floor?

Are they fixed height standing desks? Just get some adhesive wire channels and stick them to the underside of the desks perpendicular to the "tower of power". That will handle the cables coming from the tower.

u/sewell5984 · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

Wire molds. You can pick them up online or at most hardware stores.

Wire Mold

u/DrMackDDS2014 · 1 pointr/hometheater

Try something like this maybe:

Wiremold C110 1-channel CordMate Kit, White

This stuff is paintable and can help give you a clean install right up against your baseboards without having to staple.

u/sup3rmark · 1 pointr/DIY

i would definitely recommend some wire molding to hide that coax cable, though, or at least tack it down along the wall with some of these.

u/gimmemoarmonster · 1 pointr/hometheater

Floating shelves work. I actually made a floating shelf out of an old street sign and some low profile brackets. I quite like it. As for cable management, look into something like this.

Decent, and the adhesive is really really strong. Tried to correct the allignment and it tore some of the wall towards the bottom lol.

u/arthor · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

organize your cables... not just the TV

u/zakabog · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

That's not something you would typically see, a better solution is to run a cable channel to hold the wires and keep then concealed. If you decide to go with the tape method, use something like masking tape or even painters tape, otherwise you risk peeling the paint off the wall.

u/hgpot · 1 pointr/HomeNetworking

When the cables absolutely cannot go inside the walls/above the ceilings (attic)/under the floors (basement), I use Wiremold. It adheres to walls pretty well, and you could probably paint it, too.

u/schwarzkopf123 · 1 pointr/battlestations

You should grab something like these for your wires and it will be a damn near perfect setup.

u/TheStork74 · 1 pointr/battlestations

I bought Panduit off amazon and screwed it to the bottom of my desk in the back works great.

u/aestes89 · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

No problem, yeah it definitely helps to see it before you buy it. I never adjust the legs to standing. Not saying you can't, but it would be a huge hassle, as you'd have to adjust each leg individually. However, I'm a tall guy, so I like that I can make this desk a LOT taller than any desk at OfficeDepot.

For cable management, I bought:

and attached it to the bottom with some short wood screws. It does the job ok, but there are probably cheaper options, not to mention I didn't measure and had to cut it to size with a hacksaw as it was WAY longer than I thought it'd be. Does an OK job of hiding cables though, and pretty sturdy. I believe ikea sells something similar for pretty cheap though. Maybe look while you're there:

u/slaymance · 1 pointr/DeskCableManagement

I use the StarTech cable raceway and it has done absolute wonders for my cable management. I have a sit/stand desk with no back, so having cables hanging down from my desk was not an option. So I got this raceway and attached it to the underside of my desk using some Scotch mounting tape. Some of my notes:

  • Made of soft plastic, so I was able to cut it with wire cutters to fit the length of my desk
  • Slots along the entire length, so cables can come in from all directions
  • Lots of space and I still have plenty of room after having all my cables stuffed in there. If your desk is decently long, it shouldn't have trouble storing a modern laptop power brick
  • Low profile and sits unseen behind my desk's crossbar support
u/jakopoleon · 1 pointr/battlestations

Buy this. Super easy to install.

u/Yung_Charmeleon · 1 pointr/battlestations <--- one i personally used

it is basically a cable raceway, or a channel, that can either mount onto the wall with either screws, or adhesive (which i used, since i don't own the house.) it gives it a very clean look, without having to drill behind the tv into the wall and running cables through the wall. you can also paint the raceways if you don't like the white color on them.

here are a few other alternatives, but i haven't seen how good they are.

u/iamnerd · 1 pointr/hometheater

It's a fire hazard to run a normal power cable inside a wall. You could use a cord cover like this one on I'm using the same type product in my bedroom and it looks great once you paint it to match.

If you do want to run your cables in the wall, you could use a kit like this one from You have to hard-wire the outlets together using solid copper wiring. The lower outlet gets power from the included power cord, which allows you to hook your TV up to your surge protector. This is the setup i have in my living room. It's a bigger pain in the butt to set up, but it looks nicer in the long run.

If I had to do it all over again, I would probably opt for the cord cover in both rooms.

u/deathchimp · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

The room looks great, Those cords need work. I'm finding them very distracting. Maybe something like this?

u/jakethebavarian · 1 pointr/hometheater

u/CountyChocula · 1 pointr/battlestations

Beautiful work my man. I love a well-built, simple, clean, floating table. If you want to rid yourself of the visible cables, try running something like this across the corners.

Do you find yourself rubbing your chair handles against that trim? I want to add the trim like yours, but I already bash the chair into the edge of my table with noticeable poly scrubbing off.

u/Ahnteis · 1 pointr/hometheater

Look into the wiremold then and see if you're OK w/ that. ( paint it wall color to blend better)

I'd think you could get some used speakers even cheaper, but I'd think something like that would work for now considering your budget.

If your receiver supports 6ohm speakers, you could even go with these while you save up for something better.

I have a low-budget system myself, so I put most of my money into a projector and a Denon AVR-X1300W ($300) and bought these speakers:

It's not going to stand up to many of the systems in this sub, but it works great for my situation, and I can upgrade parts as I go.

u/chandler404 · 1 pointr/interiordecorating

For starters, maybe get the cords hidden a bit with something like this: Wiremold CMK10 Mate Cord Organizer Kit

You may even want to wrap the power cord around the AC unit so it doesn't drop down and that huge knot isn't sitting there.

Cord hider will also be good to run down the wall - maybe you could even plug in a short extension cord so the big nub for whatever else needs to be plugged in sits on the floor instead of on the wall.

I don't know if the switch next to the power outlet powers anything, or if it's just for the AC. You could look into different outlets that may clean up how that looks.

Short cord runs, cord hiders, and right angles will make this look a lot cleaner.

I think honestly It would 10x tider if thouse two cables front in center were managed cheap and helps a ton even if its still in the center there

u/alitanveer · 1 pointr/battlestations

Renting definitely limits your options, but there are some things you can do to make things really shine.

  1. Get some Velcro ties. This $5 packet will last you a while and they're reusable. Use them to tie all the cables together. Use that pole in the middle strategically to have them route behind that, or even tie the cables to that pole.

  2. Get a longer display cable for your portrait monitor. The cable length is forcing you to have the tower angled awkwardly and puts strain on the connection and tilts the portrait monitor unnecessarily.

  3. Combine the TV's power and display cables into a single strand using velcro ties that runs down from the TV, behind the games and then down the wall to behind your desk. You can even use this without leaving a permanent mark on the wall. Just cut to the right length.

u/Schnodally · 1 pointr/hometheater

Use this and stick it right above the baseboard.

u/peraspera441 · 1 pointr/googlefiber

If wireless turns out to be a flakey solution your wife might find it acceptable if you use a small paintable, plastic raceway to hide a cord for the TV. We used this one in my mom's 1890's house, It looks like it's part of the baseboard so isn't noticeable and it was super easy to install.

u/dadue123 · 1 pointr/hometheater

How much slack do you have from the speakers to the receiver? It doesn't look like too much from how the cables are positioned now?

Regarding the cables from the TV down, for something simple you can just use a cable cover like this:

u/myaltimateform · 1 pointr/SleepApnea

I think you were on to something initially with the PC fans. They're standardized, low power, and last forever. Instead of using the 3 or 4 pin connectors, you could get a USB powered model, like these, plug them into a USB AC charger, and the charger into a timer or inline switch. If you find the airflow isn't enough, you can add a second fan or try a larger one. It won't dry a tube in 10 seconds, but let it sit for 5 minutes and it should do the job.

Instead of 3D printing small stuff, you could always use Sugru. For a funnel, see if you can find a car oil funnel. They go from a large square (for the fans) to a small circle (for the tube).

If you want to get super fancy, since the tubes are a standardized length, you could mount this fan contraction to a wall with a second set of funnel and fans at the opposite end (but with the fans flipped over). Then you'd have gravity pulling the water down, the fan blowing dry air from the top, and the moisture being sucked out the bottom. Connect the two pieces with some plastic wire conduit/covers and you got yourself a nice, tidy solution.

You could even have a 'deluxe' model with an attached shelf containing a few fans under a grating/mesh for the other bits, like face mask and head strap.

I wouldn't use a hairdryer because of the heat. I'd opt for something that uses cool air, but requires no oversight.

Of course the alternative is to just clean it early in the day and let it dry for a few hours... (but I do love my gadgets).

u/kilbus · 1 pointr/DIY

drill stud caps from attic using a common point of measurement in the room and above. using fish rod or wet noodle

pull wire into attic and across. Wet noodle will allow you to use the existing box and not cut any drywall (assuming there is no fire block [horizontal 2x4] which changes the situation some)

Chain goes down the wall, pull chain out through the existing box using magnet tool

I wouldn't run Cat 5 under a carpet due to it being very easy to break via pinching

raceway is the easiest way to do this but doesnt give you a polished look

u/Piratica · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

Yes LED strips would probably be the easiest. Alternatively, they actually have LED panels on amazon, although if you're trying to simulate a window it may get a bit pricey.

You'd also probably want some cord management with either option, but I suppose you can figure that out down the line.

u/SolIII · 1 pointr/buildapc

I wouldn't recommend doing it wireless. It might work out but latency will probably be an issue. An HDMI cable would be the best choice, you could maybe get something like this to hide it with.

Oh, in that case, a cheap wiremold kit is probably your best bet. Make sure it's the plastic though, you don't want to deal with cutting the metal version.

I have one of these on the back of my desk and it makes everything look much cleaner. You have to jam the thicker cables in but it works. I opted to screw it into my desk though because every cable management adhesive product I've used has failed.

u/SectorZachBot · 1 pointr/battlestations

I recommend buying a channel raceway for your wires to be hidden behind your desk,then Velcro strap those wires down the back of the desk legs to keep tidy and from being seen.

u/jamey2 · 1 pointr/buildapc

"J- channels"

You can get an 8 feet long strip of these home exterior siding hanging strips for less than $5. Glue or screw mount it to your desk/wall. Bam! Cable raceway.

Or get the indoor office version like this one:

u/Skydog07 · 1 pointr/findareddit

The two popular choices in the PC building community are to either use a cable raceway under the desk like this one or to use an "IKEA Signum" which is what I have myself.

u/GODDZILLA24 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Here are some things you can buy:

u/MmmmThatsTasty · 1 pointr/battlestations

Hmm interesting concept. I could probably achieve something similar via different means.

For me I used hockey tape (nice matte black fabric like tape) and taped my Razer Firefly wire to itself, and ran it and my mouse cable (with some slack for movement) under my keyboard, then taped all 3 together and ran it to the back of my desk under my sound bar so it "looks" like only a single large cable going to the back of the desk.

Underneath I have a surge protector and a usb hub stuck with double-sided 3M automotive adhesive (I use this stuff for everything). and then these in expensive adhesive J-channel cable race for wires.

I also got rid of my center support leg in exchange for a heavy duty shelf bracket.

u/Saffx · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

Does anyone have any input on what raceway to get for cable management?

The two that I'm looking at are this and this, but not sure if I should consider other options or if there is something that I should look out for.

u/GinNJews · 1 pointr/battlestations

I used a lot of velcro strips and spiral wrap. I'd reccomend these over zip ties so when you upgrade cables or get new components you can reuse your straps. I still need to get one of those cable boxes to put my surge protector into though. If you end up getting a desk with an open back then these help out a lot too. It helps that I have a half backboard to help hide things.

u/MexCelsior · 1 pointr/CableManagement

This cable raceway would help dramatically if you were willing to install this under one of your flat surfaces.

u/XenIsNotVerySmart · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Great setup! I have a few quick and easy suggestions. To clean up the setup, get some stuff off of the desk. You can use this headphone hanger ( and just stick it up to the bottom of your desk. You could also try buying a cable box ( to hide the power strip and then some cable sleeves ( to hide the cables going to and from. Also, you can just remove some stuff from the floor around it, and get a cable raceway ( to assist with the cables under the desk. Great setup! I highly approve of the mic mounting position, but align the right speakers angle with the left (OCD lol). The most important thing is probably the cable box (I'm a cable management nerd. Hope what I said helps.


Cable box for power strip and cable sleeves for wires to and from, hook for Corsairs (I think?), Declutter.

u/almightybeavis · 1 pointr/setups

Zipties are your best friend, you could even go a little extreme and drill some holes into your desk to fit the cables into comfortably. Or... you could just get a nice rail under your desk:

Really nice setup by the way! You don't see a lotta setups with multiple colors, pretty unique in my opinion.

u/podboi · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm guessing its for the monitor and the cables to and from it? So a velcro cable organizer?

For other cables a cable raceway attached to the desk in some manner to hide cables.

It may even be a good idea to get a monitor arm too just so you can route the cables on it to camouflage it with it's structure, if that makes any sense.

u/smite_account · 1 pointr/battlestations

get yourself one of these badboys. . cannot tell you how effective this was for hiding my cables. 5/5. of course you will need to purchase additional components that will facilitate in hiding. velcro straps, 3m tape , cable clips. its all worth it friend. think a fellow in this thread linked a few of these things. cannot recommend the raceway enough

u/AJRiddle · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

I'd either get small hooks to line along the back bottom edge or get a mesh net to put the cables in and attach that to the back bottom. Or just a small raceway.

u/NUMB_NUTS_417 · 1 pointr/battlestations

I used a cable raceway (
Attached to the bottom of the desk.

u/kerta1n · 1 pointr/battlestations

#1. I know a lot have people have said this, but always, when showing off your battle station, have a uniform color (in your case, make the all of the RGB lights white). Also, if you want the setup to look extremely clean, remove all of your desktop icons and put the essentials either in your taskbar or your start menu. This will make it so it looks professional.
#2: Cable management is pretty clean, maybe try this, as this will help hide all of the cables under your desk, except for the PC, which I would pull out a bit more slack so some of the wire can be hidden behind the cabinets.
#3: (Optional) If your budget has some room, maybe get an (RGB) light strip behind your desk (or if you have one) as this will contribute more to the theme of your setup.

u/xSnoooze · 1 pointr/CableManagement

Little bit late, but I used this on this inner bottom of my desk, right against the bottom of the desktop. It's awesome and super easy. Just peel and stick adhesive on the back and it holds a bunch of cables. It would work the same along the backside of a desk as well.

Cable Raceway

u/yacht_boy · 1 pointr/DIY

The search term you're looking for is "cable trays." There are hundreds of variants, but something like this might work for you. Lifehacker also has a tag for DIY cable management. You want a cable tray that can sit between the two tables.

Or if you really just want to keep the tables with a half inch gap or so between them and have the cables drop down to the floor (but please, for the love of all that is holy, put in a decent cable management system instead), you could stick some shims (or even cheaper) pointy end down between the two tables on each end.

u/Chrisagu28 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Thanks. Out of all the colors the strip offers, the Red was subtle enough for this.

For cable management I used a combination of things.
The main piece cleaning up the wires was this. It is a J channel cable Raceway.

Then I used a combination of reuseable/one time use zip tips and cable tie mounts. Took some time figuring out where to put everything but it helped out alot. The power cables by my feet are the only cables you really see.

u/Z7N6Qo · 1 pointr/macsetups

my desk is about 60" i ran this across the back end to organize the cables:

u/PrestoCG · 1 pointr/battlestations

Just a simple cable raceway.

u/NYMPHOPANDA · 1 pointr/buildapc

That's what I was going for. Cheap and upgrade-able later on. I'd look at all the legs and tops; this sub definitely believes in picking out all your own parts.

Sidenote: If you go cheap like mine, find a good cable holder to add on. Ikea has this one for $12 but I went with [this] ( becuse it was lower profile.

u/nicedogfaggot · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Bingo. My power strip is big and ugly. Looks industrial. I bought some stuff off of Amazon for cable management since I knew there would be a bunch with 3 screens. Cable Box. Sleeves. Raceway. All work pretty well!

u/BigChiefJoe · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I'd like to get two of these guys from an office liquidation:

2-Drawer Letter Width Vertical File Cabinet

and mount a butcher block countertop above them

and then add some cable management underneath.

Probably $250 if you can catch the cabinets at a good price.

u/demaxo · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I was looking at this, seems pretty chunky though. Command hooks sound like a better choice.

u/jwaldrep · 1 pointr/HomeServer

I like the covered style, like this:

I like it because you can leave the cable pretty loose (therefore easy to work with and no Velcro ties needed), but it still keeps it tidy. You can get vertical versions of the same thing, which is where I put the extra slack off the cable (just let it loop down). If you have a fair amount of connections in your patch panel, consider getting one that is double sided. Obviously, it comes in a variety of sizes. Typically, 24 cables per 1u is a good guideline.

Edit: before and after. This isn't the best example for several reasons, but it gives you an idea of what good cable management can do. Some things worth noting here:

  1. We removed a switch and 1/2 the cables. (Instead of having the PC and the IP phone plugged into the wall, the PCs now connect through the phone.) This will make anything look better.
  2. No vertical management like I mentioned. It's too short and there is not a good way to attach it on this rack. This may be similar to what you have, though.
  3. Mixed type of management. You can clearly see the ring type and covered type here. That may actually help you decide which you like better, though.
  4. The extra slack is pushed through the holes in the back of the covered management. I don't like to do this because it makes working with the cabling more difficult, but when there is no vertical management to take care of it, it's an alright option.
u/killersquirel11 · 1 pointr/DeskCableManagement

I've got these mounted to my desk. Not fully enclosed, but ended up being clean enough for me.

u/RuinousRubric · 1 pointr/Monitors

Tape or screw the power strip to the bottom of the desk and add cable trays (I have these) to the bottom of the desk so you have somewhere to tuck any extra length. Use cable clips of some sort (like these or these or these) to keep cable runs tidy and in place. If you have cables that you need to bundle together or keep folded, use reusable cable ties like this and avoid using zip ties since they're single-use and can damage cables if they're over-tightened.

If you have cables that you might want to remove from time to time, like for peripherals, then you should avoid bundling them with everything else. Might seem obvious, but I thought I'd throw it out there since I've made that mistake before with my keyboard and mouse.

Hope this helps.

u/PixelPhoenix · 1 pointr/macsetups

If you're able to attach something like this | | to your desk then you would be able hide all the cables on the underside of the desk and you would also be able to place your power strip in it depending on the size. If I was you then I would orient the desktop so that the cables coming from the back are facing the wall but I completely understand if you want to display the inside of your system , so if you're going to keep it in that orientation then I would also get some cable sleeving of some sort such as | |
so that all your cables are in one neat strand.

u/deepak483 · 1 pointr/StandingDesks

I have these under my desk

super easy to do just with 3M Velcro strips attached under the table.

Add some wire sleeves and your good to enjoy the clutter free view.

u/Burner2K0 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Yes some are rolled up and tied together. I think most of them are a decent length so I don't need to extend em. I'll look for that IKEA thing in a bit but what I have so far is this from Amazon that works but I think is a bit short, though it came with two. I'll the try the mic position, looks like a good spot.

u/jsqualo2 · 1 pointr/sonos

If it's an apartment(?) you don't own it? This coupled with your architectural limitations make this option REALLY attractive. Just sayin'

u/labatomi · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I do this too. except I use a wire stapler so you can't even see the cables unless you're looking for them. I use these concealer to match my walls and make them look nice

u/noncongruent · 0 pointsr/LifeProTips

I just attach a length of Panduit cable organizer to the underside of the desk. Keeps the cables tidy and out of the way, and if (or likely when) I need access I just pop the cover off to access the cables. Something like this:

u/serotonin_flood · 0 pointsr/malelivingspace

If it was my place, I would mount the TV to the wall and use one of these to hide your TV cables like this.

u/drbigpen15 · 0 pointsr/hometheater

Go wired and get some of these to hide the cables Wiremold CMK50 Cord Mate II Kit

u/SpyCake1 · 0 pointsr/hometheater

Other things to run: Ethernet, especially if you're planning to use your TV's built-in apps.


Can't help you with the HDMI wall plates. I am guessing they work as HDMI hubs which would add latency -- more input lag -- if you care about such things. It's also another potential point of failure for HDMI handshaking, and fingers crossed HDCP2.2.


I would maybe just get one of these and move on with my life.

u/Stageek · 0 pointsr/CableManagement

Hi,You can try our cable management would be work for you!

It will effectively organize and hide messy TV / computer cords and cables easily.

u/crispychick3n · -2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

you could get one of those cable hiding kits like they use when you mount a tv on a wall, or I think they actually make something for this, although I don't know what its called. its just a 2"x2" box that runs floor to celling that you would mount to the wall in the corner that has a cover that comes off. ive seen them in several multi story apartments. amazon sells them. you would just have to make sure that one side is fully removable so you can slip it behind the wires and be able to enclose them.
