10 Innovative And Economical Ways For Managing Cables In Your Home

The truth is that most people at one point or another have cluttered and messy cables running in their homes. It could be those messy tangles behind the home entertainment system, or those scary knots of cables under the desktop computer in the home office. If your cables at home are currently in such a state and you decide it is about time you did something about it, you do not need to spend plenty of money or time doing so. Here are ten cool suggestions you can use that will save you both time and money as you bring these cables under control:

  1. Label all your plugs for easy identification – Trying to arrange your cables so that they can look neat and order is hard enough without even having to guess where each cable belongs. That is why it is vital to label all your plugs before you begin with the rearranging process. You can use a masking tape, marker and label maker to accomplish this.
  2. Use wrappers to shorten the length of the cables – At times, your cables become cluttered and entangled with one another because they are too long. You can now shorten the length of these cables using DIY wrappers such that they are the exact length between the devices they are connecting. To make a wrapper at home cut out a thin, soft cable strip from an old rubber mat using scissors.
  3. Tie similar cables together – Once you have shortened the length of the cables, they may still appear to be untidy especially if you have plenty of them. It is a good idea to tie similar cables together such that they will appear as one big cable. Select a group of cables going towards the same destination and tie them using inexpensive cable ties.
