There’s nothing like the unsightliness of a tangle of cords. Necessary? They are. But nice to look at? They sure aren’t.
I lasted about one week with this mess in sight before rising to my higher instinct and deciding the cords had to be hidden.
Since the simplest solution is always the best one, I opted for that route. The storage box I had on hand got called up, the internet router and its company of cords got placed within, and the top put on. And bam:
The box instantly provided me with a clean, blank slate, while the cords, plugged in and all, remained perfectly connected inside.
I encourage you to follow suit and hide away your cords, as well. Use whatever storage container you have: a basket, bin, or an even an old drawer or wooden crate should do the job, providing they’re the right depth.
I should note that the cords snaking out of the bin did cause the lid to sit slightly higher than it’s meant to– a problem which could easily be reconciled by poking/drilling some holes in the back of whatever storage container you choose to use. But you know what?
With another box placed on top, that lid stays perfectly in place, and no one (me) is the wiser.
