It’s a good idea to think about some of the most common DIY jobs you may need to do and what tools you would need to do them. What about hanging a picture, for example? What tools would be required? Perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is a hammer and nails. You will also need a tape measure and a level that would ensure the picture is even and in the right spot.
If you purchase self-assembly furniture items, you will likely need some basic tools to put them together such as a screwdriver. Make sure you purchase a screwdriver kit that has both a flat head and Philips head screws in it.
Do your toilets and sinks have a habit of blocking up? While this may eventually require the expertise of a skilled plumber, the problem can very often be remedied using a plunger, another good tool to own.
We cannot list every task you may need to do at home but here are a few more tools that will help with many DIY jobs: a saw, a wrench set, duct tape, and a flashlight. Also, don’t forget safety equipment which should include safety glasses, a breathing mask, and work gloves.
