Are you planning on decorating your rental home for the holidays? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
Now is typically the time of year when most people decorate their rental homes for the holidays because, they want their homes to look festive, especially when they have people show up for holiday parties.
If you haven’t taken steps to decorate your rental home yet, this article provides you with several helpful tips that you can use for decorating your rental home without leaving an impact on the property.
Tip #1 – Use Command Hooks
Every year, one of the most popular items used by holiday decorators everywhere is Command hooks.
Command hooks are awesome because they don’t leave holes in the walls, and can be used to hold items up to 50 lb in weight.
If you’re planning on doing some decorating that may require you to hang lights, or potentially heavy items, you should use Command hooks instead of using thumbtacks, screws, or nails because this will enable you to not leave any holes in the walls after your decorating is finished
Tip #2 – Focus On Avoiding Fire Hazards
If you do some research, you’ll see that more fires occur every year during the holidays because, many people often don’t use common sense when decorating during this time of year.
It’s not uncommon for people to place some Christmas trees near heaters, leave holiday lights on during the night, or leave extension cords pinched, potentially causing fire hazards.
During the process of decorating, you should always take the time to evaluate your decorating job to determine if you’re using common sense and decorating your home safely.
Regardless of how big or small your rental property is, make sure that you turn your holiday lights off when you’re not at home, or asleep, this will help you to keep your energy bill low during the holidays while also ensuring that your home is always safe and secure.
Tip #3 – Think About Your Neighbors
Last of all, the most important, another thing that you want to do during the holidays is through think about your neighbors. This means that you should not go overboard decorating the exterior of your rental home, especially if your home is located in an HOA, or part of the multi-family complex.
You should always think about your neighbors first and use good taste when decorating your home while also following the rules, if they apply, for the community that you live in.
