How to Hide Your Wall-Mounted TV’s Unsightly Cords

  • March 15, 2020

Mounting a TV on the wall brings many benefits for homeowners in Singapore — from saving valuable space to adjusting the best viewing height and position. However, the thought of messy unsightly cables often deters many from installing a wall-mounted TV or at least become hesitant towards getting a tv wall mount bracket. In this article, we at Tigermount rounded up three ways from our experts to hide the disorganized mess of wires to let you reap the advantages of a wall-mounted tv.

Cable Trunking

Especially if you’ve already installed your TV mount successfully and you don’t want a lot of drilling work, then cable trunking is a great fuss-free method to hide all your connecting cables. These come in a variety of colours to suit the interior design in your home and can even be found readily available online. With a few prior measurements and a blade saw, you can easily customize self-adhesive trunking to your preferred fitting, with just a peel-and-stick application. You can also easily paint over the trunking with your current wall colour to make your TV setup as seamless as possible. Of course, if you are looking for something more durable, metal trunking casing options are available too. However, screws have to be drilled into the wall, and they tend to be more pricey than plastic trunking.

Wall Plates

Hanging wires be concealed behind your wall-mounted TV using wall plates that run the cables behind the wall to hide the cable entirely. Of course, depending on the surface and type of connection you want, there are different methods for mounting wall plates. The basic wall plate in its simplest form, however, can be installed with screws into the wall surface after cutting out the required opening — or with a mounting bracket for structural reinforcement. To avoid extra work later, test all cable connections before securing the wall plates into the wall, and secure any dangling ones with tape if necessary. Wallplates look professional and offer a clean look to your home.

Power Head Position

This last method is the neatest look if you want to eliminate cable clutter completely, as it involves shifting the power supply switch behind the TV altogether. With this, your TV will appear to be floating, with no traces of wall plates. However, you may need to consult the services of a professional to adjust the power supply position for you, as improper handling can result in undesirable consequences.
