1. Hiding Cables with Curtains
The spaghetti of cables under your desk can be a horrible sight. The easiest way of hiding these cables is to use a curtain fixed to the back of the desk. This can be a dark color, or colored to suit your decor. The curtain conceals the cables, but allows you access when required. Fixing a curtain under your desk is very easy to do, simply screw a curtain wire into the legs on your desk and slide a curtain across.
2. Create a Charger Drawer
Everyone has dozens of different devices which need to charged every night. The mass of charging cables can be an eyesore. A good solution to this is to create a charging drawer. Simply mount an extension lead inside a drawer and plug it in. Then laptops, mobile phones and tablets can all be charged out of sight by keeping them inside the drawer.
3. Hiding Routers
Internet routers are essential in every home but they aren’t the prettiest of things. Routers can either be stored in drawers like a charger drawer, or just put into pretty boxes. These boxes can have holes cut into them and stacked to make it very easy to connect the devices together. A box could also be decorated to look like a fake book if you wish.
4. Hiding Dog Bowls and Litter Trays
If you have pets then you will need to put litter trays and food bowls in your home. These can be an eyesore, but can be hidden out of sight quite easily. Dog bowls can be installed inside a drawer and pulled out when needed. Once they have finished, the drawer can be shut to conceal the dog bowls.
Cat litter trays could even be built into cabinets to make them look much nicer. Cats can enter through holes in the side of the cabinet.
5. Hiding Cables around your room
Everyone will have extension leads and all sorts of power leads running along skirting boards in their home. There are a few different ways to hide or make a statement of these cables. A small picket fence can be mounted on the skirting board to hide cables and keep them in place. You could also make a feature out of cables on your desk by using miniature overhead pylons.
There’s no need to put up with ugly things in your home, there are plenty of ways that you can hide them from sight. Hopefully by following the guide above you can learn what to do with the eyesores in your house.
