Here are six basic tools every homeowner should have in their arsenal.
A Pair of Screwdrivers
Have a pair of screwdrivers on hand for repairs and maintenance needs. Make sure you have a Phillips-head and a flat-head screwdriver.
From actual repairs to simply hanging your favorite wall art, a hammer is a tool no homeowner should live without.
A good drill set will come with multiple bits to ensure you have the ability to tackle multiple projects with screws of various shapes and sizes.
A Set of Wrenches
Another tool that requires multiple sizes and shapes, wrenches are valuable for assembling furniture and for tightening a loose bolt under the sink. Invest in both an adjustable wrench and an allen wrench key set.
A tape measure is an essential tool that will come in handy more often than you think, like fitting a piece of furniture into a room or building new cabinets.
A stud finder is useful for hanging heavy wall art and mounting shelves. It will even come in handy for those tackling more extensive home renovations.
