There are some pretty incredible benefits to renting your apartment or home, but it also has downsides. Renters who have caught the bug to decorate their space may find it difficult to do so without upsetting their landlord. Thankfully, various brands have taken notice, offering a range of nifty solutions to suit any aspiring interior decorator. Here are a few ways renters can spruce up their space without receiving an angry knock at the door.
Miracle of miracles, you won’t need to stare at your dingy white walls any longer. This incredible invention provides an easy solution for renters looking to switch things up. However, it can be a bit on the pricey side, depending on size and texture. Dreaming of your next vacation once Corona dies down? Add a tropical-themed feature wall to your bedroom and spend your nights dreaming of your next travel destination.
Invest in floating floors
Another temporary solution that renters will love is floating floors. This nifty solution allows you to say goodbye to the outdated linoleum flooring that you can’t stand by adding floor tiles that hook into each other. No glue or nails are needed, just fit the squares tightly from one wall to the other and voila! South African brand CTM has a few great options you can try.
Try adhesive shelving
When you’re renting your property, anything adhesive is your friend. If you’d prefer not to drill a hole into the wall to enjoy extra storage, install peel-and-stick acrylic shelves. This is an excellent option for those looking to add a personal touch to their living room with some pictures or mementoes. There are a few South African online stores that sell this, but Amazon is also a great option that you can try.
Adhesive strips and hooks
Another great alternative if you’re trying to avoid an awkward hole in the wall. Brands have been coming to the rescue with hooks that can hold a weight of up to 3kg. Add a new curtain rod or add a beautiful gallery of all your favourite images to your living room wall – the sky‘s the limit!
