Many of us have struggled with the mess and clutter of wires and cables in our home. The more electronic devices we have in our homes, the worse the problem is. Some devices have only one cord and one plug while others may have dozens of wires and cables. There are computer wires including HDMI, USB and others, cell phone and tablet chargers, television cables, entertainment centers with several wires and cables, DVD or router connections, cables for play stations, etc. This clutter of wires and cables doesn’t just look bad. They present a safety hazard for children, collect dust, and are the potential cause of trip and fall accidents for anyone in the home.
Some tips to help alleviate the problem are:
- Examine the cable lengths: Make sure your cables are at the minimum length you need. You can buy shorter cables or shorten the ones you are using.
- Conceal the cables: Cables do not need to be exposed. When possible, hide the cables under floor cord covers. They are available in a variety of colors and styles for your home.
- Route the cable wisely: If a cable must go around an entire room, plan a route that creates as little disruption as possible. If you have walls or furniture that can be used for attaching and concealing the cable as it makes its way around the room, use them. There are adhesive cord clips, raceways and cord protectors that will assist you in using the walls, furniture and floors to hide the cable.
- Consider using a charging station. In this way, your cell phone, tablet, MP3 player and any other device that must be charged can be charged together in one neatly organized area that has one power cord for every purpose.
