Hide your cables in a Vattern

This is neat. Paul hides a stash of cables and switches inside the Vattern bathroom cabinet.

“In a corner of my room I’ve fixed my router, the switch and the cables on the wall. It was quite practical but it looked ugly.


Two months later I found in the “bargain corner” two doors of the Vattern series. Later I bought two basic elements of the Vattern series. The result is a beautiful and nice litte cupboard which hides router, switch, cables and all the other stuff. I didn’t connect the elements, but it is still possible to do so by using screws. Finally I fixed four litte cabinet feet, so that the doors can open easily.”

    This is excellent, something I’d not have thought of. I have a place right under my desk for one of these guys – to get rid of having to view ugly cables.

    Thanks for posting!
