How To Build The Total Toolbox

Monday, October 12, 2015

Regular readers of my blog will know that I love to upgrade the house in any way I can, whether that means doing something big or something small. I love trying new things and telling you all about my experiences. And, with any luck, they can help you do the same.

However, the detectives amongst you will realise that I never talk about the tools that I use to get the job done. That is not because I don’t value the job they have, but because I don’t have the time or words to write it all down. So, today I have decided to write a post all about tools, and specifically how to accumulate the perfect ones for the job.

After all, it is the tools that turn your dreams into a reality!

What Is Your Level Of DIY?

Do you take DIY and interior design seriously? If the answer to that question is no, I would advise you to keep your toolbox nice and simple. There are two reasons for this, which are as follows: cost and usage. Firstly, some tools are incredibly expensive and will set you back a lot of money which is a waste of money if you never use them. And, secondly, you might never use them! Someone with a hydraulic torque wrench should only have one if they are going to use it for its intended purpose.

What Problems Do You Come Across The Most?

Again, this is a great way to cross tools off your list. It is impossible to forecast which problems will occur and when they will occur. Do you then buy every tool possible for every scenario? No, because that will cost you a lot of money, and they might never come out of the box. In my opinion, your best bet is to analyse what problems occur the most. If leaks or flimsy shelves are taking up the majority of your time, there is no need to buy air tools when manual tools will do fine.

What Can You Afford?

As you may already be aware, price plays a big part in your final decision. In a perfect world, your toolbox would have every gadget and gizmo available. But, we don’t live in a perfect world, so you have to choose what you can afford. I would never buy a tool or piece of equipment that wiped out my bank balance just to upgrade the house. The modern and contemporary tools that are all rage look amazing, but are they worth it in the long run?

However, Quality Always Comes First

The final thing to remember is that you shouldn’t skimp on quality. Without quality equipment, your renovation designs are sure to go awry somewhat. Okay, you cannot afford the best tools on the market, but that doesn’t mean you have to buy the cheapest. Take a look at the mid-range products and check for feedback before you make any purchase.

The right toolbox will make all the difference to the final result.

Have a great day!
