Home Tool kit Buyer’s Guide
Quality of tool kit
The quality of the components in your home tool kit is clearly one of the most important factors when selecting a household tool kit. But the price you are prepared to pay also depends on how much you will use the tool kit and how experienced you are with general DIY tasks. If you are more experienced and know you will get a lot of from the tool kit it is worth paying for a better quality more expensive option. With tools particularly the more you pay the better quality you get. Tools in a higher quality toolkit will be more effective, easier to use and longer-lasting. However if you are only going to be doing small jobs and simple tasks it might be worth saving money and space by buying a smaller, less expensive basic tool kit.
No. of individual pieces
We have listed the number of items in each tool kit set, so it is easy for you to determine how large the tool set is.
For more experience users a larger DIY toolkit with a wider range of tools would be a better choice. The Makita P-90532 and Deko Home Repair Toolkits are great options here. However for odd jobs and simple projects, larger kits may be overkill and a small or more basic tool kit would suffice.
All our selections like the Apollo 71 Piece kit set and the VonHaus 92Pc Hand Toolkit come in a tool case or tool bag. This is great for organizing your tools as everything is in one place so you can always find what you need. The tool case will also protect your tools from damage and corrosion as well as making it easy to carry them around, whether it be in the home or garden or perhaps to help out a friend.
The great thing about a home tool kit is its versatility. A tool kit set is your DIY home fixit solution. Even the more basic tool kits come with a range of screwdrivers, bits, sockets and allen keys. This is ideal even for small tasks such as assembling flat-packed furniture or putting up a picture. Larger household tool kits like the Hi-Spec Home & Office toolkit come with larger tools such as hammers and chisels. These are ideal if you plan some more challenging tasks such as making furniture, fitting kitchens and bathrooms or installing architrave, panelling, dado rails or skirting boards.
A comprehensive high quality toolkit will mean you are equipped for any household or DIY task that come your way.
