Default "Dressing up" a washing machine discharge hose

The hose hanging of fthe edge of my brand new Mustee utility sink is just ugly. I've seen a couple options out there for this problem, like this:

(reviews say that this doesn't work well at all)


And, Mustee sells this attachment, which I'm thinking about:

(I'm not sure how to attach a lint-catching device though)


Does anyone have any clever ideas, or experience? Obviously, this isn't a big issue, just a cosmetic thing.

Thanks!

You're right, I should probably just do that. I will say that I am shocked with:

- The amount of water that dumps out of the washing machine
- The force of the water coming out of the discharge pipe
- The amount of lint coming out of the discharge

It might not be a bad thing to strain that water out before it goes down the drain!
