Space Saving Solutions for the Modern Urban Home
Newlyweds Grace and Joseph, 28 and 29, recently moved in to a 35-sqm. condominium in Makati City. Grace works as a marketing assistant while Joseph is a call center supervisor. As individuals coming together, each of them brings in personal belongings from their ancestral homes with the hope of making everything fit in their newly purchased home.
Like Grace and Joseph, many condo dwellers or homeowners face the daunting task of constantly having to maximize their living space while trying to bring in and retain more stuff to make their homes as complete as possible.
“We see the need for solving small-space challenges. We cannot stop the trend of high-rise condo living because it is also very effective especially for working professionals in the city who want to stay near where they work,” says, Thelma Alix, vice president of 3M Philippines. “While this challenge is real and present, we want to help the typical Filipino family to make everything fit in these small spaces. The idea is to organize their walls and make organizing through hanging a habit,” Alix adds.
In order to maximize living spaces, the solution is wall organization. No need to utilize every floor area, if you can maximize the wall. Thus, it is essential to use hanging solutions that can provide the best space saving techniques with strong, handy, easy to use features while doing away with drilling holes that can cause more damage to walls and ceilings.
3M Philippines reintroduces the Command brand, hanging solutions that offers a wide variety of products in home organizing and decorating that hold strongly, removes cleanly, and locks in place without wall damage items that could be delegated for hanging instead of occupying more space; thereby giving the customers such as Grace and Joseph the freedom to customize small home spaces
What separates Command from other products is its unique adhesive technology that can easily be removed from walls damage-free, as opposed to drilling holes and using screws and hooks. In addition, it is designed to be strong and secure, capable of holding up to different weight limits for every product category. It is very simple to use and remove as well.
3M Philippines consumer, home and office business division head Vivian Faustino underscores the need for space-saving hanging solutions for homes with limited spaces. “For every part of the home, Command has products that can let consumers hang their stuff easily. With its simple pull-tab strips coupled with easy instructions on how to use it, homeowners will worry no more on how to create more spaces,” she adds.
With seven product categories covering every part of the home (Decorative, Multi-Use, Home and Office Organizers. Cord Management, Picture Hanging Systems, Replacement Strips and Bathroom Solutions), Command has all the product offerings and smart solutions for every part of the home. From designer medium hooks that can save space and can hang dustpans in the kitchen, to sticky Sawtooth Nails that can hang heavier pictures or artworks for up to five pounds, smart and space saving hanging solutions are endless with every Command product.
