We’re working to make our basement more welcoming, so that it’s more of a hangout space. We started with some new bluetooth speakers last week, and before that? We finally hung the TV on the wall- but I was not happy with how it looked with the wires hanging down.

How to Hide Wires When You Mount a TV
The plus, you don’t have to do it. The drawback? You have to pay for it.
Do it yourself.
The plus? Way less money than hiring someone, and you get the satisfaction of doing it yourself. Hide the ugly tv wires! The drawback? Well, you may have some frustration moments…but really, if you are a DIY person, you already know to expect those moments.
Hide the TV Cables
Regardless of which option you choose, it’s worth the investment to figure out how to hide wires when you hang your tv on the wall. Maybe it’s because I have pets, and children, but not only are the wires less than awesome to look at, but they also seem to attract things like cat paws, toys, curious fingers and hands, and other things. I like that with the wires hidden and tucked away, that they are out of sight and also out of reach of hands, paws, toys, etc!
We found a product that lets you hide the ugly TV cables! The Legrand flat panel recessed connection kit offers convenient access to the back of your tv and has a nice white decorator plate to look at when you are accessing the back of your tv.
I have to make a full disclosure that I didn’t actually do any of the install. My husband did it. All of it. I helped in more of a supervisory role, and took photos. I wasn’t sure how he’d feel about having in-wall storage but we’re both really pleased with the result. It looks so much better than the wires just dangling down!
First: My husband laid this out so you can see what the plug looks like. This is one of the first things he looks for when he takes things out of packaging.
