Hanging Pictures and Other Decor without Damaging Walls

{{ post.title }}

One of the most difficult aspects of rental houses is the restrictions you encounter when it comes to decorating. You want to make your home your own, but not at the expense of losing your security deposit when it comes time to move. Rental home décor may be one of your biggest challenges, but you can still decorate the way you want with these alternative options.

Command Strips

In recent years, 3M created an alternative to hanging pictures and other décor without causing damage to the walls. These Command strips come in a variety of styles and sizes so you can find the one that works best with the type of décor you need to hang. When you are ready to move or you want to change things up, the adhesive quickly and easily releases without leaving marks on the walls. There are no holes to fill and you get the same versatility you would get when hanging with traditional methods.

Pogo Stands

You may have seen pogo stands used in showers to provide shelves for holding soap, shampoo and other items you need to keep close by. Now you can use similar products to decorate Atlanta rental houses as well. These stands can hold pictures, shelves, cubbies and any number of other décor items to create a look that’s truly unique. Everyone will be talking about your rental home décor and how you managed to make your rental home your own.


Another great option to display your favorite pictures in rental houses is to hang wire across the wall. While it can be a challenge to attach the wire on each end, once you are done, you can easily clip pictures to the wire. One of the advantages of this alternative for hanging your pictures is it is extremely easy to switch out pictures as your tastes or the seasons change. Hang just one wire across the wall or dress up the room by hanging several wires one over the other so you can hang even more pictures.

There’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to use rental home décor, just as you would if you bought your home. Many Atlanta rental houses place restrictions on putting nails into the walls and can make something as simple as hanging pictures or other décor a challenge. If you are facing these restrictions, there are alternatives that allow you to hang pictures in rental houses without worrying about wall damage. These and other options will add a touch of your personality to your home, even if you don’t own it.
