Whether you are renovating the kitchen, revamping the interior décor, or adding extensions, having some handy construction tools makes your work easier.
1. A Set of Pliers
Pliers come in handy during the plumbing and electrical tasks. They not only apply in remodeling with House Doctor items, but also in maintenance work. Even jewelry and woodwork projects require a pair of pliers.
Suppose you can do painting on your own. You will need something to help you reach the ceiling and high walls. Without a ladder, life will be so complicated. The best ladder always has attachments for handy tools to keep you comfortable doing major works.
3. Measuring Tape
A measuring tape comes to the rescue in many situations. Get one that can endure daily abuse. It doesn’t have to be very sophisticated but should have a switch to stop backward retraction.
4. Japanese Cat’s Paw
This is ideally a claw hammer with extra chisel end. Before you finish your home projects, you will have done so much with Japanese Cat’s Paw. Talk of hammering the nails and prepping rough surfaces.
5. Cordless Drill
A cordless drill is your lifetime investment required in renovating just any part of the house from the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room, etc. Go for one with lithium-ion model that is light and less toxic as opposed to nickel-cadmium batteries. Check for good trigger control as it can help you easily switch from slow to fast drilling. With an accessible reverse switch, you get things done quickly with thumb and forefinger.
6. Oscillating tool
The oscillating tool may seem obscure but it does just about any job. It can help you access hard-to-reach areas as you stand or try to cut through pipes and woods.
Some DIY makeover tools are affordable and a great investment you can use for years every time you move to new space.
