7 Stylish Storage Solutions for Your Home
Storage doesn’t have to be sterile. Here are ingenious, eye-catching ideas for every room in the house. By Heather Summerville
Bulky cable boxes and tangles of cords have nearly beaten us all into submission. But don’t give up the fight: This genius
console has got your ugly tech stuff covered—literally. See the holes in front? They’re strategically sized and spaced to
allow your remote’s gamma rays (or whatever) to penetrate. Inside, your cable box, Blu-ray player, and movie-streaming device
can hide out, with cords neatly threaded through precut holes in back. TOO by Blu Dot console, $300, target.com.
Not in the market for a new console? Taming wires can vastly improve your media station. The quickest fix is Velcro cord strips ($5 for five, amazon.com), which neatly wrap and cinch excess cables—meaning no more dusty coils on the floor. Pair them with the Pivot Power Strip ($30, momastore.org), a sleek, adjustable unit that snakes around to hide in tight spaces and accommodate oversize plugs. Or mask the whole mess with the Plug Hub by Quirky ($25, quirky.com), which conceals coiled cords and a power strip in a small box that nestles in a corner or under furniture.
