6 Tools Every Homeowner Must Own

Being a homeowner means learning new skills, doing new things, and having to use tools to accomplish some basic maintenance that a family needs.

Here is a short list of some basic tools that you can pick up that will make home ownership easier:

1. Stud finder - You can keep from poking a ton of holes into your walls. It's a simple tool that will save you a lot of time and frustration later.

2. Level - Level shelves are, well, important. A level lets you put up perfectly flat shelves and pictures every time. You might look to get two different sizes, a smaller one for shelves and a longer one for bigger projects and longer shelves.

3. Hammer - A comfortable hammer is a necessity for every homeowner. Finding one that you can wield is a bit more than simply grabbing the cheapest one. Look for one that's comfortable and has enough weight to get the job done. While you're at it, look for a nail assortment so you have them when you need them.

4. Handsaw - So often, when we need to cut something, we just need a handsaw. Many homeowners will buy a circular saw or a multi-tool, and those are great, but a handsaw will work for most small home projects.

5. Workbench - You don't need a large, permanent work bench. Black and Decker makes a great workbench that folds down, also works as a clamp and can act as an extra pair of hands when you need help to hold something.

6. Hand tool kit - One of the most useful things you can buy is a kit that has a screwdriver and bits, a ratchet set, and more, all in one case. You'll find that everything from a set of allen wrenches to a set of regular wrenches will help you do everything you need.

6 Tools Every Homeowner Must Own

You'll notice there aren't any power tools on this list. For most home projects, you only need a tool for a few minutes. Hand tools are more than enough.

If you end up doing remodeling and significant work, you'll want to get the help of electricity.
