DIY must haves for every home owner

A basic toolbox is a necessity for any home owner’s inventory. Here are a couple of necessary items to help you get any DIY project sorted.

Philips and flathead screwdrivers

A Philips or x-shape screwdriver is one of the best screwdrivers to keep in your toolbox – many appliances use this shape screw, so it’s a useful tool to keep on hand. Another great screwdriver to keep on hand is a flathead one – most light switch plates use straight screws.

Tape measure

Need to measure how much paint you need or help figuring out placement of furniture and objects in a room? A tape measure is a DIY must have!

A level

Take the guess work – and skew pictures – away by using a level. A small level is handy for even the smallest DIY venture.

Utility knives

Utility knives come in handy in the oddest of times – from scoring plasterboard or trimming edges of spare carpet, there are many uses for a good utility knife.

A hammer

A basic toolkit must have, a hammer will help you hang those pictures or pull loose nails out of your old floorboards. Invest in a good quality hammer, that is long and lightweight – a good rubber hand grip is also a must have.

As your DIY toolkit expands, here are some other key essentials to purchase.

  • Pliers
  • An adjustable crescent wrench
  • A power drill
  • An electrical cord
  • A flashlight
  • A small ladder or step stool
