Remodeling is a major undertaking that consumes both our time and resources. To save yourself from wasting the former, it is worth doing an overview of your tools.

With a fully equipped toolbox, apartment renovation won’t be scary, whether it’s just a quick wall refresh or a total bathroom renovation.

Power tools

They make many jobs easier and faster. The kit of each renovator should include:

  • a screwdriver and a drill or a drill-driver (combining the role of both tools),
  • grinder
  • jigsaw (helps in cutting out even holes and trimming materials).

Hand tools

Not everything can be done with powered devices. Essential hand tools include:

  • a hammer,
  • a set of flat and Phillips screwdrivers,
  • wrenches and allen keys,
  • pliers,
  • pencil or chalk,
  • a tape measure,
  • spirit level,
  • protractor.

Painting tools

Wall or ceiling, no painting job is complete without them! Before buying paint, make sure you have:

  • a spatula and a paint tray,
  • small and large paint rollers,
  • a set of flat and round brushes (don’t give up on the smallest size! They are indispensable for finishing work),
  • painter’s tape and plastic sheeting (necessary to protect unpainted areas),
  • a ladder and/or a telescopic handle to mount your paint rollers on.

Although you can’t call it a tool, protective clothing such as gloves and goggles should also be in your inventory before you start the renovation. Safety first!
