Setting up a home-theater system can be expensive and time consuming, so you want the finished product to look pretty darn awesome.
Unfortunately, one aspect of home-theater setup tends to get overlooked: cable management. What good is a sexy new HDTV and attractive, modern-looking speakers if your living room is overrun with unsightly wires? The last thing you want is for your slim, wall-mounted HDTV to look like an octopus because of all the cables trailing down.
The easiest way to pretty up your home-theater system is to organize and hide its cables. Options for hiding your existing cables (rather than doing away with them altogether) range from simple zip-tie organization to under-the-carpet snaking to behind-the-wall wiring.
