- Spirit level.
Either for hanging up shelves, pictures, or installing anything that has to be straight, a spirit level is a must have as it ensures you are getting the objects level and looking great.
For reaching those projects beyond arms length, it is crucial to have even a basic stepladder because it means being able to reach higher. Also a ladder gives you the stability which you would have been without if you attempted to climb up on to your sideboard or window ledge!! Definitely a must have for DIY.
- Selection of screwdrivers.
Honestly, you cannot do much DIY without the assistance of a screwdriver. There are a variety of screwdrivers to choose from, getting a basic set is a smart idea. Ideally the set should include both a Philips head and slotted drivers in multiple sizes.
Also a necessity. Whether it’s hanging up a picture or even replacing roof slats, you will not get around it by not owning a hammer. A claw hammer is always handy, as it’s also great for removing nails, also. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but buy a decent, steady one.
- Tape measure.
It completely goes without saying that you are in no way going to be able to complete many projects without help from a tape measure. A length of at least 5m is recommended.
- Paint brushes and paint selection.
Painting is forever a fast and effective way to renovate your home and having the right utensils truly makes things so much easier- and less stress! It’s a very good idea to choose brushes that are appropriate for all paints to save an extra trip to the shops.
- A multi tool.
For all those out to do DIY, you would need to have the best multi-tool in your toolbox. Whether you’re the type of person who likes to tamper with things, or you often find things to repair in the house, a multi-tool is undoubtedly a praiseworthy investment. By having the best multi-tool in your toolbox, you are prepared for almost any DIY challenge.
