From wallpaper, to flooring and backsplashes, these items will blog you away! #rentalhomedecorating #rentaldecorating #rentalapartmentdecorating #removablewallpaper #removablebacksplash #removableflooring

Well, have no fear because I am going to share some fantastic removable products that you will want to utilize in your own rented space. Check them out below:

Peel & Stick Backsplash 

Are you looking to update a kitchen or bathroom? This backsplash looks and feels like just like genuine tile! The best part? It is SUPER easy to apply & remove. All you need to do is peel and stick to any flat surface. No need for cement or grout! These tiles are made of a flexible epoxy material that is easy to cut so you can work around tricky spots and corners.

Removable Wallpaper

Yes, wallpaper is now renter-friendly! You don’t need to be a professional to install this wallpaper as it is merely just a big sticker! The peel and stick adhesive is repositionable, easy-to-install, and does not leave a residue when removed.

Removable Hooks

Not only are these hooks removable,  but they can also hold up to 4 pounds! Want to get creative? You can spray paint them a metallic gold or blush for a chic effect. These hooks will hold firmly on a variety of surfaces, including paint, wood, tile and more. When they come off, there’s no holes, marks or sticky residue!

Removable Floor Tile

Yes, removable floor tile IS a thing! Crafted from vinyl, this tile easily pieces together and boasts a matte finish. It features a self-adhesive for easy application to any clean, flat surface, and is designed to be removed when you move out OR decide to go with another look!

Art Velcro Tape

Are you not allowed to nail into your walls? Or have plaster walls that crack easily? You can hang up your favorite artwork or wall decor with these Command velcro strips. When they come off, there’s no holes, marks or sticky residue!

And there you have it! Are you going to be investing in any of these products yourselves? Let me know down below!

    Where were you when I had my first apartment – I know – you weren’t even born. Great ideas that can even be used by homeowners. Great article❤️

    Love this post! I am moving into a new apartment and my landlord is also my boss (I work in housing at a University and live in) so there’s a double uncomfortableness about damages to my living space.

    I love the idea of using the tile as a backsplash in my kitchen. The flooring may be something that I go to as well!

    I’ve seen removable wallpaper before, but the tiles I never really thought about. Thank you!

    Where can I purchase the backsplash in Canada,…It looks amazing

  4. Mary says:

    Love the idea of the peel and stick tiles, but curious how much glue damage is left behind on the original flooring when you remove the peel and stick tiles? I don’t imagine removing the tiles are an easy or clean job.

  5. Joanne says:

    Hi there. 🙂 Where did you purchase your removable floor tiles/stickers?

  6. kelly lent says:

    Have you installed and removed wall tiles? Everything i read says it will damage paint. I was hoping to find a post about real temporary options like mounting on thin board, then putting on wall. We just purchased tic tac tiles but all companies have same disclaimer.

  7. I think this is a good idea for the renter space to arrange well decorated. Removal hook and removal floor tiles are the best solutions for decorated renter space. But other removal products also great.
