Must-Have Home Improvement Buys to Get You Move-In Ready!

Inexpensive solutions that’ll help you keep your home in tip-top condition.

Ask any homeowner, and they’ll tell you the same thing: Getting the home move-in ready, post-renovation, is no easy feat. Chances are, you’ll need to include various add-ons like mirrors, racks, or shelves, but missed the golden opportunity to ask your ID for help. Drilling the walls for your projects will also leave behind debris, which you’ll need to clear for furniture.

And after clearing away the debris comes the process of moving the furniture in, which can often leave your brand-new surfaces scratched up. Sounds like a nightmare to deal with, right?

Work your vertical space | Scotch® Super Heavy Duty VHB™ Mounting Tape

Space is a premium in Singapore, and it’s an undeniable fact. To make the most of your (limited) square footage, hope comes in the form of wall-mounted shelves and racks for storage and display purposes. However, getting them hung up can be fairly demanding. Not only does drilling leave you with a huge mess, you’ll also have to make sure that there are no existing pipes or electrical cables for obvious reasons.

So, unless you’re willing to seek help from professional handymen, we’d recommend Scotch® Super Heavy Duty VHB™ Mounting Tape. And it’s all designed to ensure that your wall and window surfaces can be optimised – made with an “energy absorbing” acrylic foam, the tape has stress-relaxing properties for durability and performance that’s a cut above the rest.
