Hiding Cords for Wall Sconces & Picture Lights


If we’re installing wall sconces or picture lights, we will always hide the cord with a cover. Click through for a quick tutorial- this makes all the difference and it takes less than five minutes!

This is nice because it only requires basic scissors to cut & install- plus, it’s paintable. I like to paint it the same color as the wall.


Use Laser Level

Our color blocked walls would make a crooked cord cover look very obvious, so a level was extra necessary in this room.

Measure and mark

Setup Your Workspace


Measure and mark the cord cover to your desired length, then use scissors to cut it.

Use elbows & joints

Use the elbows & joints to add more pieces if necessary. Then you’ll push the cord into the cover until it’s totally concealed.

The last step is painting the cord cover. Again- I prefer to paint it the same color as the wall, but if you like a little contrast- it’s totally fine to leave it as is.

Those work great for floor lamps, desks (desktop computers), and other “floating” fixtures & tech that require being plugged in. I hope this was helpful.
