Check out our list of the best tools to keep in your home:

 

Screwdriver Set

A complete set comes with a variety of head sizes to get into all kinds of spaces. When you’re completing basic projects like tightening cabinet hardware, this set will be your best friend.

Hammer

Make sure that the head of your hammer is smooth to avoid damage to any surface that you’re working on. Get one with a grip that feels the most comfortable to you!

Cordless Drill

There are many things you can do with a sturdy cordless drill, including creating holes in wood without splits. With a full charge, you can take your drill anywhere without worry.

 

Measuring Tape

Accurate measurements of furniture, valuables, and walls are a must whenever you decide to remodel. Pro tip: you’ll appreciate a measuring tape that fits in your pocket when you’re in a tighter spot.

Utility Knife

A handy general tool, your utility knife will be helpful in many different situations, and especially in the beginning of your move when you’ll be cutting open taped boxes.

Safety Glasses

Any home project calls for safety. The protection that glasses provide will let you work worry-free! High-impact goggles are the most effective, covering more of your face and eyes.

Ladder

A ladder’s purpose speaks for itself, just make sure not to walk underneath it! (Just kidding…)

 

Zip Ties

Easy to store and durable, zip ties are great for a wide variety of things — from fastening flowers together to attaching tags to luggage.

 

Pliers

When you’re working with pliers, a strong tool with a firm grip will be your best aid. Different sizes and shapes work for different projects and spaces, so why not get a few kinds?

Handsaw

If you enjoy building your own furniture and completing various home projects, a great handsaw will help you get the job done.

 

There’s no better feeling than moving into your dream home. Once you’ve made it, having a few handy tools available will save you a last minute trip to the store when you need them most!
