I tried grokking some of the other questions here, since I'm sure this is a duplicate -- but for the life of me I can't figure any of them out.
I'm looking to hide coaxial/ethernet wiring that either enters through the closet of my living room, or right next to the closet entrance. I'm actually trying to run the wiring horizontally to cover it up with a nice wall plate that would be installed next to the power outlet on the wall.
Unfortunately, for both wires, I'm not sure where they originate from, and there is no attic above, just a bedroom (which I hesitate to drill holes into the hardwood floor we paid to refinish).
I've kind of gathered three options of how to achieve what I'd like:
- Remove the floor molding and run the wires horizontally that way.
- Remove sections of drywall (which I don't really know how to patch).
- Figure out how to get the coaxial from the closet to the wall in a 45 degree angle and put the plate close to where the ethernet wire comes out of the wall.
What would be some of your opinions here? I hope the diagram below sheds some light into what I'm dealing with and looking to achieve.
Edit: This is an actual picture
