Top Five Tools Every Home Owner Needs

Maybe you are into DIY and Home Improvement, and you already have quite the collection of tools at your disposal. Maybe you are just starting out and you don’t have many tools, but you’re living in your own home now. What sort of tools might you need for home ownership?

1. A Tape Measure

Tape measures are indispensable when you’re a homeowner. You never know what you’ll need to measure. I’ve used mine to plan projects, decide how big a new couch should be, and measure how big your curtains should be. You will use your tape measure countless times.

2. A Hammer

You will use your hammer to hang pictures and art work, assemble small pieces of furniture and who knows what else. Every tool box needs a hammer, and you will use yours many times.

3. Screwdriver

Screwdrivers are great for changing out switchplate covers, putting small furniture items together, installing screws to hang heavy items, and many more things. I highly recommend getting a pack of several screwdrivers in different sizes.

3. Pliers

Pliers are often used to hold on to small objects, as well as to pick things up. You can also use them to bend and manipulate metal. I also recommend buying a set with several different sizes of pliers.

4. Level

Levels are so useful when you are hanging things or putting something together. You can get large levels and small levels.

5. A power drill

A power drill is the best thing ever! You can quickly put things together, drill holes with ease, and remove screws. I have used my drill countless times since I’ve bought it, and it is the one thing that I always recommend someone buy when they move into their own place. I definitely couldn’t live without mine.
