Essential Tools You Should Have In Your Toolbox

Have you ever had to ask your neighbours for their screwdriver? Have you ever had to ask your handy friend for their wrenches? I know this too well, unfortunately. However, when I moved into my first home (a few years ago now), I decided to get a toolbox. Did I know what I needed? No. Did I know what I was doing? No. But I got a few different tools and then, if I needed another tool, I’d get it.

You might be on the same boat as I was a few years ago. You might want to buy a few tools but have no idea what you could need. You might not know that you need some tools but believe me, you do – whether you own or rent a house, something’s bound to break or need fixing. If it’s a small task you can do it, so it’s essential to have a few tools at hand.

Multi-bit screwdriver

Speedy Fixings, UK building material supplier, recommend going for a multi-bit screwdriver. Choosing between dedicated screwdrivers or multi-bit screwdrivers comes down to personal preference. However, since you never know what you are going to need your screwdrivers for, with a multi-bit screwdriver, you can cover a variety of uses. No need to go for bulky and heavy screwdriver sets or a variety of dedicated screwdrivers when you can have one high-quality multi-bit screwdriver that will take care of most repair and renovation work around the house.

Speedy Fixings stocks a variety of building materials that you might need for your next home repair or renovation project. Need angle brackets? Speedy Fixings has them. Need bolts and screws? Speedy Fixings stock coach bolts, wood screws, drywall screws and much more.


As Suburban Mum says, “Pliers are not only great for home repairs and renovations but these are also great for a variety of hobbies, including crafts, such as jewellery making. With pliers, you can easily grip onto something to turn, pull or twist it!” Pliers are truly a wonderful tool that can help you with a variety of tasks, including small plumbing jobs, adjusting bike chains, cutting wires and much more.

Adjustable wrench

Wrenches are also a great tool to have. Adjustable wrenches are even better – these are highly versatile and can be used for a variety of applications. As DIY Daddy Blog comments in a recent blog, “Adjustable wrenches can tackle a variety of tasks unlike, for example, the fixed jaw of a combination wrench. With an adjustable wrench, you will be able to fix small plumbing issues, tighten bolts and much more.”

Claw hammer

Want to assemble furniture? A claw hammer is essential. Want to pull out bent nails from your furniture? A claw hammer is essential. As Sims Life mentions, “assemble furniture, build bug hotels and hang your favourite pictures on the wall with the help of a claw hammer. This type of hammer can easily drive nails into walls and its curved claw can pull out bent nails from your furniture and walls.”

These are some of my must-have tools that I’d recommend everyone having in their toolbox. What are some of your favourites?
