No More Tangles – Tips to Avoid Wiring Mess around Your Home Entertainment System
So, you finally got your hands on the new home theatre system you have been drooling for. What a wonderful feeling it is to unpack all the components! No matter how long it takes, you won’t get tired of putting it all together and in place – but that’s about it. When it comes to managing and hiding the wires, no one really has the time for it. In fact, most people are quite clueless about what needs to be done.
At ARB, we help our clients make their new entertainment system look exactly what it is worth. However, if you wish to delay the professional help for a while, here are a few things you can do to keep the wires hidden from the eyes.
Start by Organising
Before you hide the cable, you should ensure that they are properly organised. Usage of cable ties, catchers, and organisers is highly recommended. These are easy to use tools to bundle the cables in an organised manner. Once bundled, you can put those bundles behind the component or the furniture to minimize the visibility as much as possible. However, if the system doesn’t have an open back to run the bundles, use cable tacks and screw hooks to hide cords at the back.
Make Use of Carpet
There’s hardly anything you can’t put under the rug, especially when it comes to wiring. It may sound like a lousy job, but you’ll be surprised how magical carpet can be. All you need is a cable organiser to properly pull a cable from one corner of the room to another. This is usually the best way to cover cables when there is a long distance between the equipment and the outlet. Similarly, you can also hide the cables behind the cabinet and large sized furniture in the room.
Bear in mind that all this will still require time and a lot of tools. That is why it is more convenient and cost-effective to call our team and let them tackle the tangled situation more professional matter. We use proper tools and strategies to make your entertainment area look cleaner and more organised, plus free of electrical hazards.
