4. Try No drill Hooks for bathroom and kitchens

No drill hooks (or adhesive hook) can stick to any surface, so you can easily organise your bathroom and kitchen storage without drilling into walls.

5. Give your sofa a quick affordable makeover

Quickly remove and change the look and colour of your sofa by slipping on a sofa cover over it. Sofa covers are very ideal for renters. You can get the sofa colour of your dreams and at the same time protect the landlord’s furniture. They are affordable and washable. Think of it as a t-shirt for your sofa, rather than taking time to choose a new sofa, use a cover to change the colour and pattern to your own taste whenever you want.
