Whether you are a DIY expert or only use household tools when duct tape fails, you should have the basics on hand and make sure they are stored in an organized manner.

Basic Tools Every Home Should Have:

  • Claw hammer (one end is flat,
    and the other end is in a V-shape
    to remove nails)
  • Screwdriver set
    (Phillips and slotted)
  • Allen wrench set (hex key)
  • Medium size crescent wrench
  • Utility knife
  • Tape measure
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Level
  • Cordless drill
  • Putty knife

Having these tools on hand will keep you prepared if you need to take care of an unexpected, minor repair. Also, the number of a good handyman is also a great idea if the job is too daunting. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help from an expert!

Keep Your Tools Accessible and Organized:

Streamline your tools by sorting and storing them by functionality and size. Doing so takes the frustration out of finding the right tool for the job.

Group all tools and their corresponding accessories together, such as drills and drill bits. When they are all in the same spot, you don’t have to waste time digging around in various drawers and cabinets looking for the correct attachment.

Install pegboards to hang frequently used tools such as wrenches, screwdrivers, and hammers so that they are visible and within reach.

Store power tools off the ground in sealed cabinets or containers. You always want to keep them stowed away for safety’s sake.

Invest in a few heavy duty plastic drawers or containers for small miscellaneous items such as nuts and bolts. Make sure you label drawers and containers, so items are easily located.

MOST IMPORTANT TIP:

After using your tools, put them back exactly where you got them.

When it comes to home maintenance, we all want the job to be done as speedy (and correctly) as possible. Having basic tools on hand is great, but you also want to make sure those tools are sorted in a manner that makes your life easier. Declutter, de-stress and simplify!
