4 Renter-Friendly Decor Ideas

As a renter, it can be challenging to make your space feel like home without making permanent changes. Luckily, there are plenty of renter-friendly decor ideas that you can incorporate into your space without risking your security deposit. As more and more people are making the switch to renting, the market has become flush with tips and tricks that you can use to turn your rented space into your own personal oasis. And don’t forget; a metal print is an elevated piece of decor that can upgrade any home, rented or otherwise!

Removable Wallpaper

Removable wallpaper is a game-changer for renters. It allows you to add pattern and texture to your walls without damaging them. Whether you’re covering boring white paint or a landlord’s questionable wall color, removable wallpaper can completely change your space without leaving any nasty residue! A great way to incorporate metal prints into your space is by using them as a focal point on a wall covered in removable wallpaper. Choose a print that complements the colors and patterns in the wallpaper, and you’ll have a statement piece that adds depth and interest to your space.

Command Strips

Any renter will tell you that command strips are their best friend! They may have started off as a simple peel-and-stick option for lightweight photos, but over the years they have evolved to solve most decorating issues that renters face. Now you’re able to hang all kinds of items! Go to the thrift store and purchase that gorgeous wall mirror – you can hang it up without making a single hole in your walls. Or make your own pendant lighting with some command hooks and a battery-operated light. As most renters know, using a little bit of creativity can go a long way in creating your space. Our aluminum prints are such a versatile decoration; they are definitely lightweight enough to be hung with a command strip. 

Different mounts/decor placement

If you don’t want to risk leaving any marks on your walls at all, the safest route is adjusting your decor or art to sit on tables or shelves. If your surfaces are starting to feel too cluttered, you’re also able to use magnets! Fridges, beams, railings, or some mirrors: all of these work as surfaces to decorate! One of our favorite magnet tricks is to cover up unsightly electrical panels with an eye-catching piece of art using only a magnet to mount it. A small change can easily turn a negative into a positive! Aluminyze metal prints have the different mounting options to suit your needs, whatever they may be.


Nothing brings a space to life like… well, a little life! Plants are a welcoming, vibrant addition to any home, but especially a renter’s home. They bring color, texture, and interest into a room without having to hang something up or make any changes. We recommend some air-purifying options as well as colorful flowers so that your plants aren’t just there to look pretty; they’re also working for you! Nurturing a plant can help you nurture yourself, especially when you know that doing so is curating your apartment. However, you don’t have a green thumb, don’t fear. A beautiful metal print that captures the details and vibrancy of a gorgeous, colorful flower will also do the trick.

Every single person deserves a comfortable place to live that feels like it belongs to them. Your space is yours, no matter how long your lease is. Make coming home feel warm, exciting, welcoming, relaxing, or whatever other vibe you want! All you need are a few key tools, a little imagination, and the desire to express yourself. We hope you’re bursting with ideas for reimagining your apartment – print your art with Aluminyze and get to decorating!
