A Simple Way to Get Those Nasty Cable Boxes, Routers and Wires Out of the Way

Everyone needs a cable modem and router these days, but they aren't exactly the most beautiful things to look at. Fortunately, Sweet  Sanity has a solution that helps you hide the boxes and wires inside some simple, white storage boxes.

The solution is incredibly simple and easy to do with a box cutter. Find out more over at Homes and Hues: Hide Your Wireless Router Out of the Way With Beautiful Storage Boxes

Do not use small paper/cardboard boxes like this. Doing it like this is a fire hazard - many routers get very hot and require proper air flow. I have actually seen a linksys router melt partially due to being in a cabinet with the top vents covered too much. If you use a larger box with proper cuts for venting then you could use wood, otherwise use plastic or metal to provide a little safety, but regardless do your best to provide ample airflow. These are not meant to be placed in small confined spaces.
