This changes the whole dynamic theme of the room and allows you to personalize your space! Renters can just remove the knobs when they move and take their style to the next residence.
Drapes & Curtains - Curtains and drapes can be removed and stored in airtight bags while you enjoy hand selected window treatments of your choice. If you have window blinds, there is a great product called Slide on Brackets® that allows you to hang your curtain rods directly on the blind without putting holes in your walls.

Light Fixtures (not recessed lighting)- If you are staring at a light bulb hanging from your ceiling, you may need to consider investing in a light fixture! Lamps and lighting can vary in price from thrift shop makeover lamps, to high end showroom quality fixtures. Your style can be found in this full spectrum of choices.
