Buyer Friendly Hack: Hang Items in Your Rental Without Nails

December 18, 2019 2 min read

If you, like many, are currently renting your piece of paradise, you’ve probably thought about spicing the walls up a bit.

And then the thought of patching all the holes when your rental term is up hits you like a bus. Unless you don’t want your security deposit back then you’re probably going to want to fix those.. or avoid them!

Well rest assured, this buyer friendly hack will put your mind at ease (just like our renters insurance).

The following solutions will allow you to embrace your creative side while saving your wall.  Be sure to clean your wall with a soft cloth and warm soapy water – adhesive solutions will stick better and longer.

Adhesive Hooks

These provide a strong hold while retaining the ability to be removed from the wall with minimal damage and effort. They are available in a variety of sizes and styles and can be used for a multitude of applications from artwork to curtain rods.

Adhesive Strips

Tired of seeing that gap in the wall between your picture and the wall?  It is possibly to hang something flush. Adhesive strips (sans hooks) are a simple option to hang items with a lower weight.

Poster Putty

Get ready for a throwback to school projects as a kid – poster putty has more uses for than just puttering around. Using it liberally can allow you to hang smaller picture frames allowing you to put that gallery wall together quickly.

Hook-and-Loop Fasteners

Another ideal option for hanging items on the heavier side, flush with the wall. These strips or patches come in two pieces — one that sticks to the wall and one that sticks to what you’re trying to hang.

Renting a house or apartment doesn’t mean you have to choose between blank walls and a forfeited security deposit.  It also doesn’t mean you get to skip out on buying insurance!
