“Hidden cables TV furniture” or “TV furniture with cable management” is one of the most appreciated design solution for the interior design of your TV area. The purpose of this furniture is to hide the TV cables so that they are virtually non-existent.
No one likes to notice black and white wires and cables running along the floor and to the socket.
In addition, electrical wiring can also be a danger if placed in a passage area because you can trip and hurt you.
So the interior design solutions are designed to hide the TV cables through the design of special furniture.
Hidden cables TV furniture can be used both for wall mounted TV units and for panel TV, as well as for televisions placed in a special cabinet. All these solutions are, in fact, ideal for your home relaxation area and the choice will depend on the style you want to obtain or the space you have.
Let’s now understand how these hidden cables TV solutions work.
- In case you have a wall mounted TV, a way to hide the cables is to choose a furniture-frame with cable ducts. In this case, only a thin column, usually made of hard plastic material which reaches the socket will be visible.
- The interior design solution therefore provides for a cable column integrated into a minimalist and essential furniture. An alternative to hide a wall mounted TV cables is to break the wall in order to insert the built-in electrical boxes to which the socket is connected. Obviously, the result of this intervention is aesthetically perfect but you should consider its invasiveness and the times of execution, which involve breaking operations, use of plaster, drying, sanding and painting of the wall.
- If the TV is installed on a panel, the cables will be hidden at the back of the TV. The panel will be fixed to the wall in perfect adherence or slightly detached (generally a few millimetres are sufficient). These panels, which are real furnishings and are often part of a whole structure for the relaxation area, are drilled for the cables passage behind the television and, if necessary, inside the wall. In the more advanced versions, these hidden cables panels are also directional, swivel and rotating, enabling the TV accessibility from different points in the room.
- Finally, there are design TV cabinets where the TV is housed inside a special door compartment. This is also an effective solution to hide the cables. This type of design cabinet is available in various styles, sizes and models. It can also contain a comfortable bookshelf besides the sliding door TV cabinet. It is precisely the latter that allows the almost invisibility of the cables, and the cabinet can accommodate not only a television but also, if necessary, a stereo system, a dolby surround system and, more generally, any electrical appliance. The only limit of this type of solution is due to sizes: the choice of the “inches” of the TV depends on the space available in the cabinet.
