Default help with speaker wire

I am buying my first surround system and I am trying to figure out how to hide the cables. I have to go down the side of my living room which is about 15ft. I was going to run from behind the tv and to the back wall 2 speakers and then a sub woofer and 2 front speakers. I just don't know how to hide them. I believe I have 14 gauge monster stereo cable. My thought is I am going to have to run each rear speaker along the wall side by side. Any suggestions would be great.

Do you have carpet in this room??

If so then the wire can be carefully tucked under the baseboard where is meets the carpet, there should be enough room for one or two 14 gauge wires.

And I would not waist the money on the monster cable, standard 14 gauge lamp cord will do the same job at a 15 to 20 foot run, you could go to 12 gauge wire if needed. for a longer run.

I have only tile floor. I heard about wire channels just not sure about it though. I am not good when it comes to electronics.
