If you are planning to take on a couple of home improvement projects yourself, even minor ones, then you will be needing your very own toolkit. It should go without saying that every home needs one, just in case. However, contrary to popular belief, your toolkit should ideally come together over time and piece by piece.
There is certainly no need to buy an expensive kit full of lavish tools at once. We recommend that you start with some basic tools before moving to acquire the more complicated ones as you take on more complicated projects. Of course, that being said, you need to start somewhere. Listed below are the toolkit essentials you must have:
- Tool bag – The most important thing here is sturdiness and storage capacity. Make sure your tool bag can hold all of the essentials, whilst being durable against any abuse it may take in the DIY zone.
- Hammer – This tool is a must-have for any serious homeowner, you never really know when you might just need it.
- Screwdrivers – Take note that there are actually two main types of screwdrivers, flat heads and the Philips.
- Drill – There’ll be many times you’ll need a hole made in a surface, and having a drill in your toolbag makes the job a whole lot easier. Just make sure if it’s battery powered, that it’s always charged!
As a general rule, we highly recommend that you look at your tools as a form of investment on your part.
