Tools that every Home Owner should have

Minor maintenance tasks are not even a problem and can be fixed using some basic tools. Every homeowner has this sort of kit which grows in size as more complex tasks come up. Even if you are an inexperienced or medium experienced person, there are some tools which could be your saving companions in difficult times.

Experts suggest these 7 tools which must be the part of your toolkit.


1- Knife:

Putty knife or utility knife should always be in your tool pack. The flat putty knife fills the cracks or holes in the walls and floors or scraps off the extra paint.

On the other hand, the utility knife is used to strip wires, cut anything you want and for other purposes. Its blades can be changes once blunt or corrode.


2- Measuring tape:

Excited about hanging a new portrait in your room? Well, you cannot do that without a measuring tape.

It helps us in measuring space if you want a new sofa or other furniture. A 25 feet long tape is sufficient for your need.


3- Hammer:

An average- sized hammer with flat faced can meet your need of driving the screws in the walls.

Keep in mind that a lightweight hammer is good for use in homes. Additionally, these are handy and can be taken easily wherever you want.


4- Saw:

There is no better choice for cutting than a hand saw with thin and sharp blades. Take the precaution while working with cutting tools to mitigate the risk of accidents.

For experienced ones, an electric saw could help them in carpentry tasks or create new stuff.


5– Screwdriver:

This tool is used most of the time in homes because screws are everywhere. The screwdriver’ heads are available in different shapes which you can change according to the requirement.


6- Drill machine:

It is as important as the screwdriver. If you want to hang the shelves or assembling the furniture, the drill is a must and for this, there is no alternative of a power drill.


7- Flashlight:

Resolving the fault on the back side of the refrigerator or fixing a sink, either way, a small flashlight powered with two batteries can help you to work. A fully charged light can work up to eight hours so once charged, you can work without any worry.

You cannot deny the fact that these small tools solve many maintenance problems. But there is a lot more difference between online DIYs tutorials and actually doing these tasks at homes.
