Home improvements made easy with the right tools

There are many ways for us to make our homes aesthetically pleasing, but we must consider price, availability of material as well as functionality. Fortunately there are many ways in which home improvements can be done that don’t require you to bust the bank.

Small changes can be made to relieve the burden of a large renovation. Here are a few ideas to get your initial revamp started:

All handymen need knowledge of their working areas, whether it be painting, plumbing, paving, building or electrical work. With this comes the use of the right tools. Knowing which tools to purchase will ensure you do the job correctly and get the process running efficiently.

Your toolbox:

A sturdy toolbox with adequate space is vital. Ensure you get a toolbox which is compartmentalised so that you can find tools easily.

A claw hammer:

A claw hammer has two main functions which make life easier for the user. It is used to both apply nails as well as remove them by using the claw end.

A wrench:

A wrench can be an absolute life saver. The adjustment feature on it allows you to tighten and loosen various types of nuts and bolts.


A combination plier is great for removing nails. It allows for a solid grip so that you can avoid injuries.


A flashlight is great for those little nooks and crannies, especially when plumbing behind cupboards and sinks, to keep you aware of your surrounding when beginning work around the house.


A flat and star screwdriver, preferably adjustable and interchangeable, so you always prepared to screw clamps and hinges.

There are more tools which can be purchased, but they may not be accessible due to availability or affordability. These fundamental tools can take care of small jobs around the house, for bigger projects, it is advisable to contact the professionals, as they are best equipped.

Home repairs – how to do it right

Just when you think you’ve got your home repairs all under control, something else breaks down, breaks off, or falls apart. Common problems, such as a burst geyser, can result in major damage to your walls and furniture, having boisterous kids around often means you end up with cracked pictures frames and broken windows and there’s always a mirror that needs hanging or a cupboard door that needs to be refitted. At Showroom Condition, we take care of all those inconvenient jobs for you — there’s no job too big, or too small. 

The key is to regularly examine and repair your home. If you leave things for too long, the damage will most likely get worse and repairing everything all at once can be exceptionally tough on your budget. Regular maintenance should include mending leaky taps, re-painting, sanding down and oiling wooden doors, trimming trees, checking roofs and waterproofing.

Of course you can do it yourself, but unless you happen to be a skilled handyman, it will require hours of research and planning, not to mention running around sourcing materials. It makes much more sense to spend your time doing what you’re good at and use our professional home repair services.

At Showroom Condition we have the experience to handle your project from quote to sign-off. We free up your time, while we take care of maintaining your home beautifully. For comprehensive service, contact us today.
