As a homeowner, you can save a lot of money by doing most of the necessary repairs around your property yourself. And with the right do-it-yourself tools at your fingertips, almost every job can be an easy one, in addition to being a budget-friendly one.

But if you aren’t sure which tools are must-haves for home improvement projects, read on, as the list below will help you get started on stocking up on what you need whenever a sudden problem arises. Stop by your local independent home improvement store—it should have all the tools you need, and the employees there can answer any questions you may have.

Claw Hammer

It should come as no surprise that every DIY toolbox for home repairs needs a claw hammer. This type of hammer is versatile because you can use it to hammer nails into a piece of wood or a wall, and you can use the other end to remove nails whenever necessary as well.

Adjustable Wrench

Forget about having a bunch of different sized wrenches; instead, make sure you have one adjustable wrench in your toolbox. This type of wrench is designed to quickly and easily adjust so you can get it around a variety of different bolts and nuts throughout the home, no matter what type of project you’re working on.



Screwdrivers of varying lengths should also be in your DIY home improvement toolkit. Make sure you have a set of flathead screwdrivers and a set of Phillips head (or crosshead) screwdrivers—each allows you to work with different types of screws.

Power Drill

A power drill is a must-have power tool for just about any DIY project. It’ll easily drill holes and quickly place screws so you can complete projects sooner and with less manpower. Definitely invest in one from a reliable manufacturer. Cordless varieties need to be charged, but they’re extremely convenient.

Miniature Level

There are full-sized levels you can purchase, but a miniature level will work for most jobs and will easily fit into your toolbox. Choose one that will give you both vertical and horizontal readings so you can ensure every fixture, picture frame, and piece of hardware you install is positioned perfectly.

A Toolbox


Finally, make sure you have a toolbox that’s sturdy and has plenty of compartments to keep all your tools organized and easy to find.

With so many tools that you can purchase at your local home improvement store at an affordable price, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have a home improvement toolkit at home for any DIY projects and repairs that come your way, whether it’s fixing the leaky faucet in the kitchen or building a treehouse for your kids.
