Think about the kind of small jobs you will likely need to do at home. What about something as simple as hanging a picture or even a shelf? The key to doing a good job is having proper tools. What might you need for this? To attach it to the wall you will, no doubt, require a hammer and nails. A tape measure is also important to make sure its in the right place and a level will ensure it is straight.
There are also those not so pleasant jobs such as unblocking a toilet or drain. An essential tool in this case is a plunger.
A lot of furniture these days requires you to assemble it yourself, this means you will need certain tools for the job. A screw driver set containing both flat head and Phillips screws will be a valuable tool.
While we are not going to mention every possible job, you might need a tool for, here is a list of some other very useful tools to have in your home tool kit: A wrench set, flashlight, duct tape, protective gear such as safety glasses, gloves and a breathing mask.
You may find that starting your home tool kit will make you more of a DIY enthusiast than you thought you were.
