Everybody enjoys owning a computer, but nobody likes dealing with computer cables that are constant eyesores. Every time you add a new device to your current setup, you add another cable that clutters everything up. Luckily, with a little ingenuity, there are a number of ways to clean up your existing cables and even hide or eliminate them.
Things You'll Need
Go wireless where you can. By adding a wireless Internet network, for example, you can completely eliminate the need to run long Ethernet cables from multiple devices. Any computer or device in range of your wireless router will be able to pick up the Internet signal being transmitted and access the Web. This hides cables by completely eliminating them.
Hide your cables inside your wall. If you live in a home or an apartment with a lenient landlord, make two sets of holes in your wall--one by devices like your monitor or printer and the other by the base of your computer. Run your cables through these wall holes and up to the devices they are connected to. This will completely hide the majority of the length of the cables behind your wall, giving the area behind your computer a clean and spacious appearance.
Buy a cable holder. These devices are available for purchase at any electronics retailer that sells computer components. Cable holders are small tubes that you literally wrap all your cables up and stick inside. These can be made of soft, flexible material or metal tubes. While they will completely hide all of your computer cables inside of them, the cable holder itself is left visible to anyone who dares to look behind your computer workspace.
