Easy Peasy: Hide Your TV Cables and Wires, a DIY

3 Materials
1 Hour

A fantastic all-in-one kit makes is super easy to hide all those unsightly television and cable wires!

We received an all-in-one kit to test and review from Wiremold by Legrand to hide all those awful ugly cables and wires in the wall.

The neat thing about this kit is that everything you need is included -- yes, all the tools and pieces and parts you need are packaged as a kit.

There's an easy to follow video online (a link is in my blog post on this project). The whole project should take way less than an hour to accomplish.

After some fits and starts on our end due to a sound bar and needing a longer cable, we got all the necessary holes going and wires fished through.

The grommets cleverly clamp to the walls with no need to attach them to studs.

And voila, no more cables! None! Aw, how nice is that?!

    Is there electrical wiring that has to be done in order to use this kit? I have mine hung above my fireplace right now that I just recently did with a similar tv mount for no stud hanging, but I have no electrical outlet near the mantle, I'm wondering if one has to be wired in order to do this? I have been thinking since it is just my dvr box that has to be connected with the HDMI cord and then of course the tv power cord plugged in I would maybe look into buying those strips that hide cords but even painted the color of the wall I think you way would look so much better. I am a female doing this by myself so I'm not sure how easy it is to achieve on my own lol =) I have done several DIY projects and I am familiar with some power tools etc but not wiring at all.

    Thx for the info but I have a bunch of electrical cords on the floor on super thick white carpet. They run about 3 ft from the wall. Any suggestions? Thx

    • It's a bit hard to know without seeing it but there are a bunch of other cord hiding kits out there. Your local home improvement store or Amazon have oodles of options available. Hope that's helpful.

    A question from Australia - our wall frames have "noggings" (horizontal bracing pieces between the vertical studs @ about 1350mm from floor level) so i guess this product wouldn't be usable here (????)

      We have braces between our “studs” / vertical boards. Usually 2 or 3, depending on height of wall & age of house. Newer homes use metal studs not wooden.

      I’d like to know what you find out. Contact the manufacturer, they should know.
