10 Temporary, Removable Products for Renters

Of all the products we post on Apartment Therapy, the renter-friendly ones are almost always a hit. Things like temporary wallpaper, removable window film, peel-and-stick decals, and flooring coverups make it a little easier to live well in a less-than-perfect rental apartment.

Tempaper Temporary Wallpaper: This removable peel-and-stick paper comes in some very chic patterns that are sold by the sheet. Shown: Tempaper Gio in Gray at Design Public, $75.

Emma Jeffs Window Film: Unlike contact paper, this window film won't leave a sticky residue on the glass — and it's much prettier than your average hardware store sticky paper. Shown: Emma Jeffs Adhesive Window Film in Rose, $79 at 2Jane.

Mibo Tile Tattoos: Cover up an ugly backsplash with these waterproof peel-and-stick decals designed for standard tiles. Shown: 4" Mibo Ventor Tiles in Blue, Set of 6, $18 at 2Jane.

Ferm Living Wall Stickers: This Danish company has some of the prettiest wall stickers we've seen, including a new perpetual calendar designed with chalkboard tiles. Shown: Chalkboard Calendar Wall Sticker, $126.50.

Blik Wall Decals: They have a huge selection of peel-and-stick decals, and you can order custom designs as well. Shown: Fernwood Mirror Decal, $55.

Eazy Wallz: This company makes removable wall murals — or large-scale digital prints — that start around 4 x 6 feet. Shown: Beautiful Waterfall Wall Mural, starting at $249.

Chic Shelf Paper: Dress up the inside of your kitchen cabinets or drawers with cooler patterns than you'd find at the local five and dime. Shown: Kitchen Drawer Liners, starting at $2.50 a sheet.

FLOR Carpet Tiles: Their modular carpet tiles are great for covering up ugly hard flooring, but — unfortunately — they're not meant to be used on top of carpeting. Shown: A Hint and A Whisper Tiles, $6.69/sf.

Eco Woods: If you've got an outdoor patio or a bathroom floor that needs to be covered, these water-resistant wood tiles snap together and can rest on top of a hard surface. Shown: Eco Woods Decking Tiles, starting at $10.

Adhesive Hooks: You can find the basic 3M versions of removable adhesive hooks at the Container Store, but if you're looking for something a little nicer, try these Eva Solo Adhesive Hooks, $35.50 for 3 at Emmo Home.

A great tip for personalizing your rental, with Katie Deedy:
