#2 Cable Trunking
Cable trunking is a powerful way to hide away and organise your cables. Using this and cable ties can create an organised system to manage your cabling. There’s no need to let it hang from the walls so to slip out from your TV stand.
Trunking is a fabric tube that allows you to pass the cabling through, ultimately creating a single run of tubing for all of your wiring.
If your home is being refurbished at this current moment in time, it’s always worth tucking your cabling away into the walls. Have you ever wondered where the cables go for TV’s that hang on the wall?
#3 Hidden Cable Management
This tip will only work if you’re refurbishing or are open to the idea of chasing cabling through the walls.
When refurbishing your home, it’s important to get the electricians or the Audio Visual team that is on your project. They will chase your cabling through the walls, this needs to happen when the walls are plastered.
Essentially, this will allow your cabling to be managed inside the walls leaving no trail of them on the hanging outside.
#4 What to expect from your furniture
Whether purchasing a ready-made solution or building a bespoke cabinet, there are a few things that you need to look for.
Ensuring that your gear is placed tidily will always help it’s servicing, maintenance and management. There are a lot of people who require service on their systems when they stop working but engineers always find it difficult to trace wiring etc. Keep the set up clean and it makes your life for cleaning it much simpler going forward.
The accumulation of dust can start becoming detrimental to your health, allowing the system to breathe can help reduce the amount of dust that it produces. Every system has a fan built in and when this gets clogged, the system starts to underperform or breaks down. Allow areas for ventilation will have better performance on your system.
Technology is forever changing and consoles are always developing. Allowing your system to be mobile can benefit you in the long hall. For example, Sony has recently announced the PlayStation 5, you want to be in a position where you can simply unplug and replace the previous console.
These 4 tips are designed to help you improve your life at home, allow flexibility and comfortability with your technology. You do not need to hate it, embrace it and design it smartly.
