BX is the armored cable you said you didn't want to use. The prewired sections of wiremold attach to the receptacles (or rather the rec's attach to it), wherever you want them, and the rest is covered by plastic snap on covering, cut to fit(by you).

You can run NM-B on the surface if it is not subject to damage.
