How to Decorate Your Rental Walls (and Still Get Your Deposit Back)Here's how to decorate rental walls without forfeiting your deposit.Rentals can be tricky. On the one hand. you want to make the space feel like home while you're living there. On the other. you don't want to make it so homey you kiss your security deposit goodbye. In particular. choosing to decorate rental walls can feel like walking a fine line.
Though this list is by no means exhaustive. here's a quick rundown of some options:Use S-hooks and decorative rope to hang pictures from your molding.Enlist the help of wash-tape.Get some of those removable wall hooks.Opt for some Velcro.In this case. being satisfied with the method of installation and the final look of your pieces is key.
Here's the No. 1 secret to keeping your security deposit safe and sound while still feeding an art addiction: You don't actually have to hang art on your walls to make sure it plays a prominent role in your design. When your ability to change the décor is limited. simply displaying the art can have the same effect without inflicting any damage.
When working with removable wallpaper. the first step is to gauge the quality of your walls. Look for ones that aren't heavily textured or have lots of loose plaster. Smoother walls reduce your chances of having air pockets under the design on installation and ending up with a bubbly look.With the walls prepped. the possibilities are endless.
