The holiday season is officially upon us. There are few things more exciting than decorating your home for the holidays, putting up the lights, and decorating the tree. As property managers, we always want our residents to feel at home! We also need to ensure that our owner’s properties remain in good condition and minimize any maintenance issues. Aside from checking your lease and complying with decorating standards, we’ve provided a few quick and easy tips for damage-free decorating!
Damage-Free Decorating Tips and Ideas
Tension Rods for Garland
Framing your front door with garland looks gorgeous! However, it may seem impossible to hang without nails or screws, right? Consider using a tension rod (shower or curtain) and hang the garland from that! This one is so easy and takes hardly any time at all. Measure your doorway, find a tension rod that meets your taste, and suspend the garland from the tension rod for a beautiful, holiday-themed entryway. There will be zero damage to the door frame, and you can use this trick for years to come!
You can purchase a high-quality tension rod like this one on Amazon for under $30.
Adhesive Hooks & Strips for Wreaths and Wall Decor
Piggybacking off of beautiful garland, every holiday door loves a good wreath! You don’t need a nail and hammer to hang a wreath. Simply place a damage-free adhesive hook on the door, and you have a beautiful home for your holiday wreath in one minute or less. You can also use adhesive strips to hang wall decor on the interior of your home year-round!
Nothing says holiday ambiance like a beautiful tablescape with candles to make a home feel warm and cozy. Am I right? The holiday season brings the most significant risk of house fires than any time throughout the rest of the year. Removing open flames from your home and replacing them with beautiful flameless candle options is one way to mitigate this risk. There are so many wonderful options out there! You can even get a large package of candles with timers and remotes, like these, and have your home glowing each day when you return!
Adhesive clips, Shingle Clips, and Gutter Hooks
Hanging Christmas lights can feel like a headache, right? Even on the best of days, something is tangled, or one bulb is missing. Once you get through that, these S-shaped clips will make decking the halls a breeze! Adhesive clips will work on smooth vinyl siding, and single clips will help to frame your home by positioning the lights near the roofline. Be sure not to put too much weight on the clips placed on the gutters, as the weight of snow/ice/and lights could cause the gutter to detach and fall.
Window Cling Theme Setters
One of the most beautiful sights to see during the holidays are windows that have been decorated and glowing in the night light. Window clings are one of the easiest ways to set the scene are with window clings such as these. These decorations are applied to the interior side of your window and can easily be peeled off at the end of the season without leaving any residue. Window clings are also a safe and fun way to include younger family members in decorating by allowing them to place the decorations themselves.
