Living in a rental, whether it’s an apartment or a house, can be a great option for many. However, one of the major downfalls is that you can’t personalize your home in the same way someone that owns a house can.

Whether it’s as simple as painting the walls, or as drastic as changing the floors, landlords typically don’t allow any sort of modifications on their property. Some are even picky about putting any holes in the wall to hang up shelves or photos.

If you are renting and desperately want to spruce up your space without making any permanent changes, there are some great products out there that allow you to temporarily renovate your home.

There is everything from peel-and-stick wallpaper, vinyl tile stickers, contact paper, and more. All of these can be added to most surfaces and easily peeled back up with no damage done. The tricky thing is that some brands are better than others and you have to make sure you pick the right ones.

Fortunately, there are people out there that love a good DIY project and are constantly testing out these types of products. They let you know what brands are the highest quality, which ones peel up with no damage, and what their overall favorites are.

One of the people I like to check out for this information is Stefanie Bloom on TikTok. She does a variety of fun projects but is also very honest about these ‘renter-friendly’ products. She lets her viewers know what works, what doesn’t work, what she suggests, and what she thinks isn’t worth it.

Check out some of the products she does and doesn't recommend:

Keep in mind that all landlords are different and you should always check your lases and ask for approval even before adding these temporary options.
