Renter-Friendly Christmas Decorations  

December 20, 2022

For many of us, the holidays are a time to get together with family and friends. But if you’re renting your home, you might not feel like you can make it your own for the season. Here are some great ideas for renter-friendly Christmas decorations that will help get you into the holiday spirit without damaging your lease!  


Get A Small Tree Good for Any Ceiling Height

Having a small tree in your living space is the perfect way to bring some holiday cheer, but it can be tricky to find one that will fit regardless of your ceiling height. If you’re looking for something that can stay year-round, consider a bonsai tree or a rosemary tree — they’ll look beautiful and require minimal upkeep indoors. And if you’d prefer something with more height, dwarf varieties of common evergreens can give you an extra boost while still staying within your desired size limit. With these options in mind, you’ll be able to choose the perfect small tree fit no matter the ceiling height!  


Use Battery-Operated String Lights to Save Money

As the winter holidays approach, it’s time to begin planning decorations. When it comes to brightening up your space, you don’t have to choose between pricey electric lights and expensive electricity bills. Battery-operated lighting is an easy solution that can be used indoors or outdoors and is also cost-effective. Not only are battery-operated lights relatively inexpensive, but they also require no additional installation and they don’t interfere with other devices in your home that may be using a lot of energy. Furthermore, battery-operated lights come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes so you won’t have to sacrifice aesthetics when you make the switch! Upgrade your home decor this season without breaking the bank by incorporating vibrant battery-operated lights.  


Use Adhesive Hooks to Hang Décor 

If you’re looking for an easy, mess-free way to decorate your home with holiday cheer, then adhesive hooks are a great solution. They stick to any smooth surface and can be used to hang up stockings, garlands, ornaments, ribbons—anything that is lightweight—without the need for nails or screws. No surface damage, no drilling holes in the wall, and no worries about spending extra time patching up walls after the holidays come and go—they are the easiest tool for the holiday spirit. Get creative: hang pictures from adhesive hooks to make a festive display!  


With these three tips, you can make sure your holiday season is merry and bright – without busting your budget. Whether you’re looking for a small tree that will fit any space or want to save money on your electric bill, we’ve got you covered. And if you’re worried about damaging your walls with nails, command strips are the perfect solution for hanging up stockings. So, what are you waiting for? Get started on your holiday decor today!
