My first thought is that you need to plan for expansion. There is always some new gadget in our futures. Rokus, ethernet switches or wireless routers. Whatever. I'd add another foot at least. ...

I have had success with pressing speaker wire under baseboards. The carpet generally doesn't go all the way to the wall, so there is space. The carpet will give enough to allow the wire to be...
