To conceal cables using this method, you'll need to attach the cords to the back of furniture. For example, if you have a wall-mounted TV with two small boxes at the bottom where the cords are located, look for end tables that match or compliment your current decor. Then drill holes into each side of these tables near the floor. After you've done this, attach the cords so that they run through these holes. The cord should be hidden between the table and wall.
Put them Behind the Couch.
Another option is to conceal cables if your TV is in front of a couch. Place the cords at the side of the couch between it and the wall, then drill holes into each side. After that, just run them through these holes so they're hidden when you look behind the couch.
