In-Wall vs On-Wall Wire Concealment Options

Hiding TV cables in the wall

Requires a POWER OUTLET Behind the TV

Low-Voltage wires such as HDMI cables can be hidden in wall. However, the ONLY way to hide TV Power Cord (that complies to Building Code) is to have it plugged into a power outlet behind the TV. So the TV power cord is hidden behind the TV, NOT in Wall. Therefore, an electrical outlet or a Bridge-Style Power Kit is necessary behind the TV. *This option is NOT suitable for concrete wall, brick wall and exterior plaster walls.

Hiding TV cables On-Wall with Wire Raceway

Budget Friendly

Both Low-Voltage AV cables & Power Cord(s) can be hidden inside wire raceway to neatly hide cables and wire raceway can stick right against flat wall (non-textured) with pre-attached adhesive. This avoids the extra cost for a new power outlet, hence a budget friendly option to neatly manage the wires if you don’t already have a dedicated power outlet for the TV installed up high on the wall. FYI: Wire raceways that we use are paintable.

Hiding TV Power Cord That Meets Building Code

*Applies to in-wall wire concealment option only

Power Cords CANNOT be hidden / concealed in Wall

The ONLY way you can hide TV power cord out of sight that complies to building code is to plug it into a POWER OUTLET behind the TV.
If you don’t have an existing power outlet located up high on the wall where it would end up behind the TV after it’s wall mounted, there are couple of options.

Starting from


We supply & install Bridge-Style Power Kit. This option is recommended for most cases. This is the most cost-effective power solution that’s suitable for most setups with component stand below the TV.

What is Bridge-Style Power Kit?


  • If you plan to put a stand / furniture below the TV where the it can hide the inlet & other cables coming out of the wall below the TV.
  • If you don’t have an existing electrical outlet dedicated for the TV (behind where the TV will be mounted)
  • If you want to use a high-quality Surge Protector / Power Conditioner / UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) for your TV.

*Varies Significantly


This option requires hiring a Licensed Electrical Contractor and there’s separate fee for permit & inspection which is mandatory.  Click here to see an example of where to install an electrical outlet for your TV.

Where to install electrical outlet for your wall mounted TV


  • If you have a Smart TV and ONLY intend to use Smart TV Apps & Wifi Internet with NO components connected to your TV.
  • If you plan to keep your components out of sight elsewhere, so there’s only TV hanging on the wall with nothing else around it.
  • If you want to install a component wall shelf below or above your TV & have nothing sitting on the floor below the TV.

  Limitations that apply to certain walls

Condos, Lofts, Apartments & Commercial Buildings

In Condos, lofts, apartments & commercial buildings, there are 2 types of walls; Drywall with Metal Studs & Concrete Wall. And there are limitations to each type of wall.

Drywall with Metal Studs

  • There’s usually enough cavity inside the wall to fish / hide cables in the wall
  • Can conceal / manage wires on-wall with Wire Raceway (Cable Cover)
  • Can mount TV with Tilting or Fixed / Slim bracket
  • Full-Motion mount is not suitable for Heavy TVs on drywall & metal studs
  • Can install new cable jack or power outlet. *Conditional

How to check if my Wall is Drywall with Metal Studs?

If you don’t have a stud finder handy, you can try these following techniques to determine the type of wall. When you knock on drywall & metal studs, you can usually hear deeper pitch sound & little bit of echo if there’s no insulation inside the wall (most condo interior walls don’t have insulation). Or, if you happen to have a strong magnet, you can put the magnet against the wall and slide it horizontally across the wall and you’ll feel that the magnet will try to attach itself to the wall wherever there’s metal studs which should be every 16 inches. Another method is to remove wall plate of existing *low-voltage jacks such as cable jack, phone jack, ethernet jack, etc… and look inside to see if the wall is hollow. (CAUTION: Do NOT open power outlet wall plate)

Concrete Wall

  • There’s NO cavity in concrete walls to be able to fish / hide cables in the wall
  • Can conceal / manage wires on-wall with Wire Raceway (Cable Cover)
  • Can mount TV with Tilting or Fixed / Slim bracket
  • Can mount TV with Full-motion mount against concrete wall (no weight limit)
  • Cannot install new cable jack or power outlet in concrete wall

How to check if My Wall Concrete?

In most condos, lofts & apartment buildings, concrete walls are usually covered with drywall glued right against the concrete slab. When you knock on a concrete wall, you will hear higher pitch sound than drywall with metal studs. Also, when you’re knocking on a concrete wall, it will feel much more solid than a wall that’s built with drywall & metal studs. That’s because the drywall that’s glued to the concrete slab will not flex as much as the drywall that’s attached to the metal studs. Another way to tell if the wall is concrete is by comparing the thickness of the walls throughout your unit. Usually, walls with drywall & metal studs are much thinner when compared to concrete walls which also serve as part of the structural support for the building.

Older Homes & Buildings

In Older Homes & Buildings, you will find plaster walls unless it’s been gutted out & fully renovated. There are limitations that apply to Exterior Plaster Walls.

Interior Plaster Wall

(Usually Plaster, Lathe & Wooden Studs)

  • There’s cavity in the interior wall to conceal / fish wires through the wall
  • Can conceal / manage wires on-wall with Wire Raceway (Cable Cover)
  • Can mount TV on Tilting or Fixed / Slim bracket
  • Can mount TV against interior wall with Articulating bracket.
  • Can install new cable jack or power outlet. *Conditional

What you should to know

TV wall mounting & wire concealment services should be performed by a company that knows and follows building codes. Hiring an honest company to do the job ensures that your TV will be installed safely and wires will be hidden properly that meets building codes. 

SURPRISINGLY, there are many TV installation companies in Toronto/GTA that DO NOT follow building codes when it comes to wiring – HIDING POWER CORDS in wall specifically (which is a VIOLATION of building code). Any company telling you that this is OK is not a true professional and they should be ashamed of themselves for disinformation.
