Therefore, having a well-stocked home toolbox is an absolute must to handle any minor DIY urgencies that crop up. We have prepared a comprehensive list of essentials required for the job.

A screwdriver is the most common tool needed in every household. They usually come in a 'set' to fix screws of different sizes & dimensions. There is a flat-head screwdriver, Phillips head screwdriver, pozidriv screwdrivers, and Hex screwdrivers, to name a few. A manual screwdriver is a great option for assembling Ikea furniture or screwing and unscrewing nuts & bolts from the wall. If you have enough storage space, you may opt for the cordless screwdriver, which works on batteries and is comparatively safer than the heavy-duty eclectic screwdriver. So whether you are changing the handle of a cabinet or installing paper towels on the toilet paper holder, a screwdriver will be your best friend.
A plier is a multifaceted equipment to have around the house. Its jaw-like structure is excellent for gripping, twisting, cutting, or bending a specimen like sharp nails that are loosely fitted or wires that are hanging around. You can even use it to loosen or tighten bolts with a firm grip of your hand. Usually, electricians use pliers to slip open the insulation from the wires. However, we don’t recommend performing such dangerous tasks at home by yourself. Just dial a professional by calling a home service agency that will arrange for an expert electrician in Dubai, for you.
This one’s a no-brainer! Your tool kit isn’t complete if it ain’t have a hammer. A hammer does the work of driving screws into a wooden surface or wall by hitting on it repeatedly. Make sure the hammer isn’t too heavy to carry and its handle is long enough so that you don’t hurt yourself. The claw hammer type isn’t unusual for villa owners who own a garden with a wooden fence. What the claw does is that it comes in handy when you are trying to split or tear the wooden surface, or demolish an extra piece from the wooden frame. The other types of hammers are; sledge hammer, dead blow hammer, and the ball-peen hammer. Remember to wear safety eyewear or goggles before starting the task.

A duct tape is a long-lasting adhesive tape that is used to fasten surfaces and is often waterproof. They come in varying lengths, sizes & colors, and can easily be purchased from hardware stores or shipped on Amazon. If you need to fix a patchwork in the basement or seal the hole in a pipe, simply cover it with duct tape. Have a broken window pane? Just apply some duct tape and let it rest.
