It’s Amazon Prime Day, which only means one thing: it’s time to shop and save on the next best thing for your home. With up to 50 percent off sitewide from now through to 11:59pm tonight, you might as well make the most of this megaevent, especially if you're a renter.
Why? Between leases, landlords and the ever-rising cost of living, renting a property can be hard - and that’s without mentioning the rules and regulations that prohibit us from decorating our (often particularly small) space to feel like home. But there are products out there that dodge the no-nails and limited colour option problems. Think command-strips, magnetic shelves and removable wallpaper. Better than any other home retailer selling furniture, appliances and decor, Amazon caters for the renters too, with these problem-solving DIY products that make decorating easier on you, and your wallet.
So there’s no better time to find your next storage solution or renter-friendly toolkit to upgrade your space than in the Amazon Prime Day deals. Here’s our roundup for renters with top deals on easy DIY and home decor hacks:
