How to Hide Cables with Easy to Make Cable Organizers
Hide Cables with this easy fix
Are you fed up with tangled masses of cables in your house? I think we all struggle with cable management throughout our home. I never realized just how ugly those electric cords were until we moved home and decided to have a glass TV cabinet. I needed some cord control fast as there was nowhere for the mass of cables to be hidden behind, when we used to just stuff them down the back of the wooden TV stand. These unsightly cords have a life of their own and soon become a tangled web even a spider would be proud of.
Of course the easiest way is hiding them under your carpet, but if like us you decide to move your furniture around frequently that presents its own issues. SO how exactly do you control those electrical cords.
Making them neat and tidy, and keeping them tangle free.

Make your Own Cord Tidy - How to easily hide cables
As we had recently moved into a house that required total refurbishment we have ended up with odd bits of piping being left over. I simply cut a length of tubing, to a reasonable length that would hide the length of cables.
I carefully sliced up the middle of the tubing and inserted the cables.
Once I had all the plugs plugged into the electric adapter. The whole lot sat under the bottom shelf of the TV stand, flush to the wall and hidden from the eye.
I kept the smaller piece of tubing, to hide the cables we need when we link up the computer to the TV, this was for easier handling.
