Hanging Pictures in A Rental

Updated: Apr 28, 2022

Hanging pictures in a rental property is a common dilemma for tenants. In almost every instance, it’s not allowed for a tenant to hang pictures on the wall without the landlord’s permission. But what if you’re not a tenant? Can you hang pictures in a rental without permission from the landlord?

In most cases, tenants are allowed to hang pictures in rental properties. Most landlords will see hanging pictures as a ‘minor’ alteration to the property and permission is typically granted. However, there are a few instances when you may encounter issues when asking to hang pictures in your rental property. This can happen if your pictures pose a safety hazard, for example if they are an obstacle for fire sprinklers or if they contain hidden spaces that could provide access to a building’s ventilation system or other utilities.

Your Options in Hanging Pictures in A Rental

  • Wall Mounts

Have large art or picture hanging that requires a hole in the wall? Hanging these pieces directly on the wall is the best option. This will allow you to avoid damaging your walls and keep your space looking clean and modern.

  • Drill Free Solutions

Hanging pictures and artwork on the wall is a great way to add character and style to a room. But when you have a large piece that requires a hole in the wall, you’ll need to find a mounting solution that will allow you to hang your artwork without damaging your walls. Picture hanging strips and nail-free hooks are available from most hardware stores of supermarkets. If you’ve got a series of small pictures or photos to hang, these nail-free solutions will work well. Anything more than 5kg or larger pictures you risk them falling off and damaging not only the wall but the frames.

  • Seek Professional Help
