How to simplify your toolkit for easy DIY

All parents will require a comprehensive DIY kit. When you have a child, you find yourself requiring all sorts of tool that you never thought you would need. Whether you are building a bookshelf to keep all their books in, fixing something that got broken or making general adjustments around the house; a DIY kit will enable you to do this. With the rise of the internet, it is now easier than ever to carry out work yourself thanks to the many excellent guides available online.

Whilst it is important to have a DIY kit, you also do not want to have an enormous kit packed full of large, heavy and bulky items (not to mention the price). Therefore, it is important to be aware of how you can simplify your DIY kit which can make undertaking tasks around the home much easier and stress-free.

What you need and what you don’t

Firstly, it is important to identify what you need and what you don’t. There is no point having expensive power tools if you will never need them, plus you can also get many multi-purpose tools which are a great investment and will be able to tackle most tasks around the house. To find out what a typical DIY kit should consist of, you can look online.

Next, you should look to invest in items which are reliable and do not take up too much space. One top tip is to only purchase cordless items which are battery powered; not only does this make DIY much tidier, but it is also safer as there is no trip hazard and you can move freely with the tool. Trusted tool suppliers like SGS Engineering will carry all the cordless tools that you need for your kit.


Finally, you need to consider how you store your tools. It is important to have a system in place so that everything is stored neatly and also safely; this will help you to quickly find what you are looking for. A high-quality tool chest, cabinets or a tool board are all fantastic ways to organise and store your DIY kit.

These are the three steps which will help you to simplify your DIY kit. Tasks around the home can feel overwhelming when your kit is unorganised, but by simplifying you will be able to quickly and easily undertake the task at hand. As a parent, being able to do this is extremely important and can help to reduce stress.
