With all the technology that we use in every room of our homes today, we end up with dozens of cables coming out of every outlet around the house. As necessary as these cables are, they also become problematic over time.
They can be a tripping hazard and could end up causing a lot of unsightly clutter around your home that you just do not want to look at on a daily basis. You probably cannot afford to get rid of the cables that you have, so how do you manage your cables and get them organized and more controlled?
Below are some tips on how to get your cables back under control and reduce stress:
1. Move your devices as close to an outlet as possible
Unfortunately, contractors who build houses do not always think about decor and convenience when they start to install outlets around houses which means the outlets can be in awkward and inconvenient places.
But, if it is possible, moving your furniture closer to the outlets will help keep you from having to stretch your cables across the room.
This will help your home not look cluttered and will keep you from tripping over cables.
2. If wireless options are available, take advantage of it
Thankfully, technology has come a long way in the last few years and many of the devices that are used on a regular basis can be set up without the use of a cable.
Things like Bluetooth and speakers, wireless chargers for devices, etc. are all gadgets that you can use which will help get rid of some of your needed cables.
Switching over from cables to wireless options may cost a little more money upfront, but it will give you incredible mobility and freedom and will make your used spaces much cleaner.
However, devices like computer towers and monitors, and printers will still need some under-the-desk organization to keep your cables tidy.
3. Invest in good cable storage
All of our devices and gadgets that we use have to have chargers that go with them to charge them up. These chargers all have cables and can truly start to add up and cause clutter in your space.
Investing in a good box or zip-up organizer in which to store your charging cables when they are not in use can help you turn your cable chaos into a neat, organized space. Using cable management products are also a great way to clean up your space.
4. Keep the cables that you use on a regular basis labeled and neatly arranged
There are some cords that you have to use all day every day. Things like your television, lamps, computers, etc. have to be plugged up at all times. This means that you need a way to keep those cables neat and arranged nicely so they don’t become an eyesore.
There are cable management systems, like our Cable Corral products, that allow you to tidy up your workspace and keep you from having to deal with unnecessary clutter.
