Whether you love DIY or are not so keen, the fact is that every home has small jobs that need doing from time to time. Those that are DIY enthusiasts most probably have a tool for every eventuality, but what about those who are not so handy? Well, any homeowner will benefit greatly from having at least a small tool kit at home. So, what are some good tools to start out with?
A good way to start is to think of the types of small jobs you would do around the house. Take hanging a picture or a shelf for example. You will need to make sure it is straight, that it is in the right place and then you will need to attach it to the wall, so for this you will need a tape measure, a hammer and nails and a level.
So many people buy flat pack furniture these days. How annoying it is when we open the box only to find out we don’t have the tools for the job. In general, with this type of furniture you will need at least a screw driver set with both flat head and Phillips head screws.
What about other not so pleasant jobs like unclogging a toilet or drain? Although you may need to call a professional, very often the issue can be fixed using a plunger. This is another valuable item to have.
While we have named only a few jobs and the tools you will need for them, here is some more items essential to any home tool kit: Duct tape, A Flashlight, Wrench set, Safety equipment such as safety glasses, breathing mask and gloves.
Although this is just a few tools to get you started with your home tool kit, its clear to see how helpful they can be.
