Hidden cables

Cable covers and other solutions

An electricity plan when remodelling your home

Tucked behind a cabinet, couch or in the corners of most homes you will find a tangled mess of cables. A lot of care and attention is paid to the purchasing and positioning of equipment, but much is left to be desired when it comes to cabling. But it's actually very easy and simple to conceal cables.

When remodelling your home, create a clear electricity plan that shows where all the light fittings, telecommunication connections and electricity outlets should be placed.

"The ducts can be moulded into the wall, allowing the cables to be pulled through. After the wall is plastered, your cables will be nicely hidden from sight. With good planning, TV and speaker cables can also be moulded into the wall in the same way.

But even if you aren't planning to remodel your home, there are other easy solutions to help you get rid of unsightly cables. Here are a few examples:"

Using a cable cover

Cable covers can be fitted along skirting boards (e.g. self-adhesive cable ducts). Cables can be run along the floor through these cable covers.
