Easy Peasy: Hide Your TV Cables and Wires, a DIY
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?!
Come catch up on this project, the living room area, and a whole lot more at Flipping the Flip!

Mark on Nov 18, 2017A 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 (????)

Becky at Flipping the Flip on Nov 18, 2017Great question....I suppose that would depend on how high up you'd like your television. To the center of the hole behind our tv, it's just under that mark so it's doable.

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.
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
