8 Clever Ways to Conceal an Unsightly Wireless Router

8 Clever Ways to Conceal an Unsightly Wireless Router

Technology, for better or for worse, has become an integral part of every home. TVs, smart hubs, printers, charging cords—it’s everywhere, all the time, and it’s not always pretty. Personally, I prefer to camouflage as much tech as possible. For example, I made a decorative frame for my TV and have it programmed to display landscape art when not in use. The wireless router is no different—I want it hidden. As of now it’s inside a basket that’s also filled with dog toys, which is not ideal. So, I started doing some research about how to better hide it, and thought: why not share my findings?

Of course, there are some things to consider when hiding a router. The manufacturer (and any tech dad, like my own) would tell you that hiding it is a bad idea. If you look at the router you’ll see that there are likely vents on multiple sides, which allow air to pass through and keep the machine cool. Obstructing the vents can cause the router to overheat, which can either a. damage what’s around it or b. damage the router itself. The other main issue with hiding a router is that blocking it with anything can dampen the signal strength, so you’ll want to choose something that allows air and a Wi-Fi signal to pass through.
