With a raised floor you can run the cables under the floor, leaving strategic 
floor panels removable for maintenance, adding cables, etc. This is how many 
commercial installations are set up and it is, obviously, very neat. Cables 
coming in from above can be hidden behind a removable wall panel.
Someone mentioned having walk around access to the back of the equipment. I 
fully concur. 
Doing just that is the biggest single improvement I've ever made to my 
shack.... And it's free.
