It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of a DIY redecorating project and charge in full steam ahead, only to realise during your work that you’re missing some of the essential tools needed to complete the job!


So, if you’re planning on giving your bedroom a little makeover in the near future, make sure that you’ve ticked all the boxes when picking up your DIY makeover toolkit.


Here are the essential tools needed for pulling off the perfect DIY bedroom makeover!


Painting Tools


This goes without saying! If you’re planning on painting the bedroom at all, you’ll need to ensure that you have your perfect paints picked out, as well as a paintbrush set with high-quality bristles to ensure a high-quality finish.


Tape Measure


It’s tough to tackle any DIY project without being able to measure things. Tape measures are easy to use, easy to read and easy to keep on hand for exactly when you need them. As a beginner, you likely won’t need a tape measure any longer that 25ft long. No need to pick up anything too fancy – a simple extendable tape measure will do.


Spirit Level


There’s nothing quite as irritating as hanging a shelf and standing back, proudly, only to realise that it’s just ever so slightly not straight. Those sorts of setbacks take all the fun out of DIY, so avoid these particular problems by investing in a high-quality spirit level to ensure that every shelf, picture or mirror you hang is as straight as can be.


Wallpapering Tools


If your project involves any wallpapering, you’ll want to make sure that you have all of the necessary tools to make sure you can achieve the high-quality finish that you’d expect from the professionals. Tools needed include a handheld wallpaper stripping tool, high quality paste and brush and, ideally, a smoothing tool for all of those pesky bubbles.


Nail Set


If you’re going to be hanging a variety of different decorations in your newly-decorated room, you’ll need to pick up a variety of different types and sizes of nails and screws. These can generally be purchased in one large combination pack, ensuring that you’re never without the right one for the job.




Every home should have one and, if you don’t, it’s time you did! Be sure to pick up a hammer before taking on any DIY project. It’ll come in handy hundreds of times in years to come.


Screwdriver Kit


If you’ve never been the type to DIY, it might come as a surprise just how many different sizes and shapes of screwdriver you need to take on even the simplest of projects. Save yourself frustration in the long run by picking up a variety of sizes ahead of time!
