Gadgets or gizmos normally come in chrome or plastic finish, which might not go well with the décor of your house. It is not always possible to hide them too. Instead of hiding an item that does not go along with the décor, a better idea would be to complement or balance it. For instance, if you place a metal device on a wooden surface, the coldness of the metal will be counterbalanced with the warmth of the wood.
