Whether you're a first-time renter or a seasoned homeowner, your collection of tools and home improvement items likely needs a facelift every once in a while. Toolbox basics like a hammer and nails will take care of some of your home's needs, of course. There is also a large variety of tools available that can maximize ease and efficiency in your home repair endeavors. Some of the most useful home improvement items to keep in your utility closet are below.
Drills and Bits
Big and small projects alike can be accomplished more easily with the right drill and bit. If you already have a basic drill and need something more powerful for your tasks, consider something like the Bosch Hammer Drill. Hammer drills allow you to drill through hard surfaces such as stone and concrete and many of them can also be used as regular drills with the simple flip of a switch. A drill upgrade can be a nice treat for anyone.
Painting a room can give it a fresh breath of life. You may not even need to repaint an entire room to make it feel refreshed. Touch-up paint jobs can be necessary at times, too. To get the most out of your painting experience, consider items like a drip-free pour spout, quality painter's tape, and a cleaning tool for your brushes and rollers. The right gadgets can make any paint project less messy and more productive.
Repair and Cleaning Items
Anywhere you choose to live – from a cozy apartment to a sprawling ranch – will come with some necessary maintenance duties. A clogged drain or a chipped doorframe may not be the worst scenario to face, but you can make them even easier to fix with the correct products. Additionally, any time you take on a DIY project in your home, there is bound to be some clean-up required. Some very handy products to keep in your utility closet are drain snakes and degumming cleansers.
Take stock of your home repair and maintenance supplies from time to time, no matter where you live. Keeping your utility closet well-equipped and organized can make many projects go more smoothly. If you think you have an overstuffed utility room, evaluate what you really need and take some time to declutter. Like any other space in your home, it will serve you best to keep useful items handy for when you need them.
