Tools You Must Have For Remodelling Your Kitchen

By Owen Jones_

If you have decided that your kitchen is starting to look a bit tired, you are probably considering remodelling it. If you are considering remodelling your kitchen then you clearly have two alternatives of going about it. You can either pay a builder to do it for you or you can do it yourself, which is generally shortened to DIY.

The advantages of having a builder to do your renovation are that it will be completed quickly and that there will be a warranty. The disadvantage is that it is expensive. This is one of the reasons why you may be considering doing it yourself. However, if you are thinking about remodelling your kitchen yourself, you should be aware that it will normally take a lot longer, but that you will be able to change your plans at will without penalty.

If you are fairly new to kitchen remodelling, you could be wondering which tools you will need to do the job. In this article, I hope to be able to help you equip yourself with all the main tools that you will need for the remodelling of your kitchen.

Evidently, I cannot know how extensive your renovation project will be, so I will stick with the tools that will be needed for most of the jobs that you will come across. Many households already have some equipment, so if that applies to you check that they are sharp and fit for purpose. A blunt knife may be desirable for a family with children, but it is not good for carpentry.

The hammer is probably the most useful tool for work of any kind. If your hammer is old, buy a new one or have the head ground flat again. Get one with a rubber handle because you can then use the shaft to nudge things like tiles or windows into place without marking them.

A set of screwdrivers comes next. The blade of a screwdriver should always match the head of the screw you want to drive home. Not only in shape, but also in size, so you will need an assortment of flat-head screwdrivers and others. An electric screwdriver is very useful when you are assembling the flat packs into base units.

If you are retiling, ask for a gratis applicator or two when you buy your tiles and adhesive. It looks like a very broad toothed com and will save you 50% on tile adhesive expenses. You will also have to have a tile cutter. If you want to go up-market, buy an electric one with a rotating blade, but with a little practice you can easily learn to use a tile snapper.

You will require a variety of saws too. Get a standard long, hand saw and a shorter version too. You will find a jig-saw and a hack saw helpful too.

Those are the key tools, but you will also have to have a tape measure, various spanners or wrenches, a pair of pliers, step ladders, paint brushes and safety goggles.

When you are remodelling your kitchen yourself, you would be better off leaving plastering, plumbing and electrical work to the professionals in order to ensure that the venture goes smoothly and safely.
