Ways To Hide Your Cables & Wires (That Don't Require Much Effort)
The Debrief: Bedroom looking like a jungle of wires? Here are some easy ways to control the cables without having to take your house apart
Buy A Floating Cabinet
Invest in this awesome floating cabinet that is open-backed so you can mount it over a plug socket. Hide all your wire-related sins inside, plug them in and shut the door. Also a handy platform to house your TV. If you can be bothered, then drilling a hole in the top would enable you to feed your TV wire through and join its other friends hidden behind closed doors.

And If You're Lazy, But Still Want To Look Cool
If you have no hooks, but still want to hide your electricals, get a decent basket to stuff them in. H&M Home have some cool copper metal baskets, or fabric ones which do a better job of hiding the wires.
If All Else Fails, Cover Them Up In A Cool Way
If you really can't find a way to hide the wires, make a statement out of them by wrapping a rustic twine around them - and letting it snake across the room. Houseplant recommended.
