Ideas needed for neatening computers in home office
October 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi, I'm doing over my husband's office at home and need help with storing the tech stuff so that it's neat and not the jumble that it currently is. He works with 3 CPUs, 2 large monitor screens and has several routers and power strips and a few miles of cords and cables. There are also 2 printers.
The room is about 12*14 with the door and window nearly opposite each other on the long sides. I'm going to be putting a wall of built ins on one short wall for books with cabinets at he bottom for filing cabinets and storage. I'm giving him a big desk to work on but not too big or stuff will collect. The desk will face the window (which is shaded from glare by a tree) but I am stymied with where to put the CPUs and cables. Need ideas please.

It would help to have pics of room and the "stuff", but I'm thinking a long "box" at back of desk (up against the wall) that has a pull down panel. Stuff all the cords under it...they will be concealed and if you have some holes cut in the front panel, he can pull down sections of it to get to his cords. get an electrician or handyman to put multiple outlets behind that box on the wall.

Agreed, photos and a floor plan would be helpful.

Have to recommend new wireless peripherals...wireless keyboard, mouse and printer will drastically cut clutter.

Agree with dclostboy plus many of the elements such as the printer can be hidden somewhere else.
