What else I can do to get my loaches come out more

So right now I have 2 zebras and 2 clowns in my (what I think) very well decorated tank. LOTS of hiding places, plants and driftwoods.

Dither fishes I have are 3 black skirt tetras, 4 leon tetras and 6 cherry barbs.

Problem is my loaches are still hiding most of the day! When they do come out, they will quickly go back to hiding when they see me (*cry* so much for affection for their owner).
What makes it worse is my tank is right next to my computer where I spend most of my day.... hehe

Could it be that their little caves are too cozy they don't won't to come out? hehe
What else can I do? Should I replace some of my dither fishes?
