I for one couldn’t care less about the miles of cable running around my apartment. Perhaps if I was conducting tours on a daily basis I might be inclined to do something about it, but they just don’t bother me. But if you can’t imagine the shame of someone seeing an exposed cable in your home, Wiretracks provides a clever system for running and hiding those cables behind decorative baseboards or crown molding.
The real ‘secret’ of Wiretracks is that the pieces of molding or baseboard can be snapped on or off, making it very easy to run a new cable across the room. Installation also looks fairly easy since any screws or nails you use to fasten the system to the wall are hidden once the panels are attached.
Wiretracks can be purchased from the company’s online store and the prices vary depending on if you’re retrofitting existing construction, or starting from scratch. For example, 5ft. of the baseboard Wiretracks for existing construction runs $15.99, while 5ft. for new construction runs $23.99.
