Essential Tools You Need for Your Home Renovation Project

Renovating your home is no mean feat, especially if you’re planning a full property renovation. With that in mind, there are certain tools that could be of great use to you throughout your project - ones that you perhaps don’t own or didn’t even think of having to hand.

That’s why we’ve put together this list of some of the tools we believe to be essential during any renovation project - some are to be expected, whilst others may have perhaps passed your mind. Keep reading to find out what they are!


An essential tool for many DIY projects, there’s no doubt you’ll require a drill at some point throughout your renovation - we’re confident about that!

Ideal for making holes in walls, ceilings or raw materials, which can then allow you to hang decor or put together furniture, drills can also be used as screwdrivers with the right attachments, which really speeds up the process of screwing and removing screws throughout your home - something you’re sure to be doing a lot of during a renovation!

Wallpaper Stripper

This one, of course, doesn’t apply if all the walls in your home are simply painted, however if there are rooms with wallpaper that you want to replace then a wallpaper stripper is great for making that process much quicker and simpler.

Removing wallpaper can be a laborious process, one that becomes even more difficult should the wallpaper rip whilst you’re trying to remove it, not to mention there is then a risk of damaging the wall underneath.

A wallpaper stripper helps to loosen the wallpaper paste underneath, making this removal process much easier.

Wet/Dry Vacuum

If there’s one thing you can guarantee during a home renovation, it’s mess. From bits of plaster and debris to dust and sawdust, your floors are sure to get messy throughout your project.

Hiring a wet and dry vacuum cleaner is great for handling such mess, being so heavy duty that they can even handle liquid spillages, making them ideal to use when cleaning up during and after your renovation, rather than risking damage to your regular domestic vacuum cleaner.

Nail Guns

If you’re carrying out lots of DIY tasks during your renovation, such as putting together your own furniture or making minor structural changes to the layout of your house, then a nail gun could come in really handy for you.

Also known as a nailer, a nail gun allows you to punch nails into wood and other materials or objects quickly and precisely, which can help with the overall ease and efficiency of your project, rather than spending time hammering nails into items and risk bending them or hammering them in at an angle.
