Luckily, we have a few clever renting hacks up our sleeve! Read on for our top five decorating hacks for renters that will help you decorate your home without leaving a single mark on the wall!
Top tips for decorating a rented house or apartment
1. Use adhesive hooks for literally everything
If you're decorating a rented apartment, make adhesive hooks your new best friend! They're extremely handy when it comes to organising and decorating without damaging the walls.
Use them to hang kitchen utensils, bathroom towels, keys... The list of clever uses is endless! In fact, read our blog post about how to organise your whole home with adhesive hooks to discover all their clever uses.
2. Swap nails for picture hanging strips
If you're renting your house, putting nails in the walls to hang pictures is a big no no. But that doesn't mean you can't ever decorate - just hang your pictures with these picture hanging strips instead.
