Having your house or anything in your house repaired can be very expensive and most of the time, homeowners will just tend to neglect what should be fixed just so they won’t have to spend.

However, a lot of things can be done by yourself, all you have to have is a bit of skill and a complete DIY bag.

1. Hammer


This sounds basic but you might be surprised to know that not all people have hammers in their homes.

Hammers can be quite useful for such simple tasks like hanging photo frames or artwork, as well as the building of fixing the fixture.

2. Screwdrivers


If you can pull it apart then you can definitely put it back together. Especially if they are made of screws, then a screwdriver is your best tool here.

3. Adjustable Wrench

Do you have tables or furniture that are beginning to get wobbly?

Chances are, they are secured by nuts and bolts, but sometimes, these little things become loose.

This is where you will need an adjustable wrench. Just an adjustable one can help you with any bolt you need to tighten or loosen.

4. Pliers


There are things that you just can’t do with your bare hands.

This is where a pair of pliers come in handy. Hold, pull, twist, or do anything about those stubborn items easily with the right kind of pair.

5. Tape Measure

If you are going to DIY anything, at least make sure you have the right measurement.

Having the right measurement can hep you when you DIY as well as when you buy rugs or furniture for your home.

6. Level


Aside from having the right measurements, you also need to make sure that you are installing something the right way and not uneven.

A level is your best tool here. It keeps a horizontal project even and straight.
