If you’ve just moved into your first apartment, you’ve probably noticed the lease has a clause about damaging the walls by adding pictures. If you still want to hang photographs or art, don’t worry. There are ways to do it.
If you have small, light art in light frames, adhesive hangers will work well to hold it in place without adding any damage to your walls. While they do come in a variety of sizes and weight specifications, they aren't recommended for anything very heavy or fragile. Still, when used in accordance to directions, they can last for quite a long time and won't leave behind residue when you pack to move to a new place.
If you are the creative type, you may already have washi tape around the house. If not, it’s available in craft stores. Washi tape has a strong enough adhesive for you to hang bare photos or posters on the wall and use the tape as a frame. Because it’s available in a wide variety of widths, colors and patterns, you can likely find something that will match the rest of your décor.
If your lease doesn’t specifically say no holes in the walls, you may be able to use thumbtacks, staples or wires to hang your photographs and art. If you use this method, be sure to measure and mark off where you want your décor to hang to avoid putting unnecessary holes in the wall. Keep in mind you will still be responsible for filling and spackling tiny holes when you move to avoid losing your deposit.
Deciding what to hang can sometimes be the tricky part. Shutterfly offers a range of discount canvas prints that allow you to print your favorite photographs, as well as art pieces or even quotes. Use them unframed for something light to hang on your rental’s walls.
