Nothing says “clutter” more than all those unsightly—yet unavoidable—tangled cords and wires from your computer, charger, printer, speakers, surge protector…and on and on.
Whether you have a home office, a dedicated space for kids to do homework, or a home entertainment center, you’re guaranteed to have a mess of cords along with it.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with that mess. Any of the following will work for reigning in the cord free-for-all, leaving you with a more serene space.
- Hang them up. Get home office or homework center cords and cables off the floor and out of sight with a cable management tray, which installs underneath a desktop. A tray made out of mesh steel is a sturdy option that also provides good airflow.
- Think inside the box. If a tray under your desk isn’t your thing, consider a cable management box. A cable management box is just that—a box for hiding cords and power strips. Look for one that’s large enough to accommodate everything you want to hide, and in a material, like bamboo, that will add to the aesthetics of your room.
