Tricks For Camouflaging Those Pesky Power Cables, Like Your Sanyo Fw32d06f

By William Thompson

If you're like most people the number of electronic devices you own has increased rather than diminished over the years. Along with those devices comes a tangle of various power cables, like your main power supply television cable, the Sanyo fw32d06f. If you have looked at that tangled mess long enough, and are determined to do something about it, decorators have some creative tips to camouflage those lines.

Zip ties are good for a lot of things. When you've got a lot of cords hanging down, one way to make them less conspicuous is to tie them together. If you're really creative, and depending on your decor, you can decorate the stream of cords with colorful bows, clips, or butterflies, if it fits your style. You can pick up a multiple prong outlet at any big box, hardware, or home improvement store to plug in your cables and cords.

A great idea that comes from the minds of professional organizers is labeling. If you only have a couple of cables hanging together, you know which one is which. When you have a number of them running together, deciding what goes to what becomes problematic. You can solve this problem by labeling the individual cords and cables. This will prevent you from unplugging the television when you meant to unplug the lamp.

A quick and easy way to hide cables and cords is by using a basket you've placed underneath the television that's mounted on a wall or under a console. If your television is sitting on a stand that has shelves, you can set the basket on the lowest one. Wicker baskets are popular, attractive, affordable, and easily found in local home improvement stores. You just bundle the cords, tie them together and then loop the cord over a hook so they disappear neatly into the basket.

If there is an easy chair beside a television mounted on the wall or sitting on a table, the cables can be hidden behind the chair. You attach the cables with cord clips that have been fixed to the chair back. There are a number of ways to affix clips to chairs.

The success of this project depends on several things, including the fabric that covers the chair. If you have a wood chair with raised ornamentation, this may not work. You'll have to experiment to see how many cords the clip will effectively hold.

Hiding cords and cables in storage boxes is another way to solve your problem. This trick has more than one use. You just need to purchase an attractive storage box that has a closed front. You'll find them for reasonable prices at big box and home improvement stores.

You'll have to drill a hole in the back of your box before setting it under the television. Then you can run the cords through the hole you drilled. A surge protector can be placed in the bottom of your box with the cord run through the hole and plugged into the wall outlet.
