For renters especially, finding innovative and damage-free ways to decorate your space is an idea we can all get behind. As a home owner, you’ll want to preserve as much of the home’s integrity as possible, and as a renter, you don’t want to risk losing your deposit because you put too many holes in the walls.
While options may be limited, here are a few easy ways to decorate your home damage-free:
- Firstly, imagine hanging things on your walls without making ANY holes. Impossible, you say? Not exactly. The answer is to simply grab some 3M Command Strips. This amazing invention, that can be easily removed from your walls without any damage, can do everything from hanging frames and curtain rods, to organizing a space to hang coats, keys, and other nick nacks.
- Next, if you’re a renter and are not allowed to paint your walls but really want to add some personality to your space, or if you’re a home owner who wants to be able to quickly transform a space back to neutral, consider a set of vinyl wall decals. Wall decals come in a large variety of colours, designs, and patterns and are easily applied and removed without ever knowing they were there.
- While adding shelving to your walls would definitely cause damage in the form of holes you would need to fill, we’d recommend checking out Gumtree for a wide range of new and vintage stand-alone shelving units. You can always add your own unique personality with a little DIY, too!
Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to shop! Head to gumtree.co.za or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android) and don’t forget to use your location settings to find everything you need for a little damage-free home upgrade close to home.
