Everything uses a cable!
These days, absolutely everything is connected by a cable. Whether it’s a wireless device that you can charge via a cable, your tv, hairdryer, or lawnmower. They’ll all need to be plugged in at some point and in one way or another.
If you have a lot of appliances all needing cables to power them,
Why use cable management?
Cables aren’t only unsightly when there are lots of them. They can be dangerous too if not carefully looked after and tidied away properly.
Having your appliance cables strewn across the office and at home can become hazardous, especially if you have young children or elderly individuals in the area who aren’t as stable on their feet.
Cables left out can become choking hazards for pets and toddlers and are more likely to become damaged by water spills, getting trodden on, and other general wear and tear. The more worn a cable becomes, the easier it will fray and spark which could lead to electric shocks or even fires.
Keeping your cables tidy and organized reduces this risk and will keep your home or workplace looking smart and professional in the process.
How can you manage your cables?
Keeping your cables tidy doesn’t have to be difficult. It can be something as simple as putting away your phone charger or appliance in a safe area out of the way once you are done with it, such as in a drawer or storage box. Remember to wrap up your cables carefully, avoiding excess bending or damage to the internal wires. For things like computers or gaming systems that require a lot of electrical wiring, keep the wires together and tucked neatly behind the appliance away from where people may walk.
For things like kitchen appliances that you’ll want out and readily available, for example, microwaves, kettles, coffee machines, and the likes, consider
This can also be done in the workplace and leave your desk looking tidy and presentable for when your boss stops by. Consider under desk plugs that can be worked into the flooring and covered when not in use. Cables and wires can be neatly organized with cable ties, which will avoid anything being snagged out by accident when moving around your desk.
