We have a cord cover much like your link, but ours is beige, the same cover as the wall, so it blends in nicely.

We did cut into the wall for the flat screen in the living room, but couldnt in the bedroom because there is a beam going across the wall, so it prevented us from dropping the cord thru and being able to bring it out of the bottom of the wall..so we used exactly this for the flat screen in our bedroom, and painted it to match the wall color. You cant even see it!

As someone who gets this question from customers ten thousand times per day, there really isn’t any other simple way to hide your cords other than holes in the wall or the cord cover kits. If all of your components are high-def and using HDMI, there are some boxes that will do it wirelessly but they are pretty expensive. Also, keep in mind that the cord cover is absolutely the only option for the power cord – running it through the wall is a very dangerous fire hazard.

@soon2bhis: First wash the area well with soap and water.This removes any grease and dust that will change the color.Then scrape off a chip of paint from under the area where the cord cover will be placed on the wall. Take that chip to the paint store where they will match it for you. Just ask to buy the small sampler size of paint.

we have used baseboards in the past to make our own covers like the cover linked above, but more “fancy” i guess.
