Power Up In Style: Hide the Cords and Keep Your Counters Clutter-Free

22,678 Views
Maybe you've started your own business, or the company you work for lets you work from home a few days a week. Maybe, like the rest of us, you have TOO many hand held devices and charging time becomes a race for the next available outlet. If this sounds like you, you'll be excited to learn about these hot new products. Scroll through these pictures to find out about the latest and greatest ways to hide your power cords & even the power sources themselves!
I just added the Evoline USA product to my own new kitchen. Find out more about this and the other products here: http://www.randidestefano.com/power-up-in-style-hide-the-cords-and-keep-your-counters-clutter-free/

    I think the pop up would be great on a desk, but I wouldn't want it on a kitchen counter. As neat as it is, it still seems as though it would be a place to catch grease and other fluids one finds in a kitchen. I also like the wireless charging station though I usually charge my phone via the USB on my computer tower. I only need to charge it every few days or so.

    As a fellow designer, I must say that those cords are unsightly. Using the pop-up Evoline keeps the view of the backsplash nice and clean and adds an extra source of power (3 vs. 2) for when the kitchen is buzzing with activity. Thanks for sharing!

    This is a great way to get power, especially for islands. I don't see how it helps with hiding cords, except that it makes you unplug the appliance and put it away so you can allow the outlet to descend back into the counter.

    The main reason for installing it on an island is to avoid cutting into a decorative cabinet door on the ends of the island for code required outlets. We've installed one in our new home (moving in soon). I'll report back with updates once I get to experience it myself. Mostly it will be used for parties, and the occasional "kitchen office".

    I think they are great, and I agree about the elimination of cutting into the side of the quality cabinets. I was introduced to these pop up outlets about a year ago on Hometalk. I know that you must be using the air gap counter top button control for the disposal also. Nice work on your blog Gary
