How to set up your tool workshop at home


Having a workshop at home is a great advantage since it makes it easier for you to carry out different projects ranging from carpentry, to DIY or simply restoring or fixing something in your home. Before starting, you have to think about what function you want your workshop to have so that, from this, you can set it up properly.

What tools should a home workshop have?

Although the tools you include will also depend on the type of activity you will be doing, there are some basic tools that cannot be missing.

  • Nail hammer : facilitates the removal of nails in wood and also helps mold materials such as aluminum, iron, among others.
  • Set of screwdrivers and pliers : we recommend having screwdrivers of different sizes and tips, or yourself with interchangeable tips. Similarly, the tweezers must be of various sizes so that you can use them on different objects without damaging the surfaces.
  • Adjustable Spanner : Used to loosen nuts and bolts of different sizes, sometimes they also help solve plumbing problems.
  • Drill : We suggest you look for wireless options so you have more freedom to work.
  • Multi-rotating tools : they work like a wild card due to their diversification of use. Through them and depending on the accessories you add you can sand, polish, cut, among other actions.
  • Hardware supplies : nails, screws, nuts, dowels, sandpaper, and other good quality items are essential.


What is DIY and how to use it to improve your home 

How to organize tools

The organization in your workshop will be essential to work smoothly. Consider these ideas to organize each of the objects in order to find them easily.

Organize the small pieces

Use various containers (they can be made from recycled materials) to put screws, nails, nuts and more. Then label each one so you can identify them. We suggest you use containers with a lid so that in case they fall they do not water the pieces.

Select various materials that work as dispensers

You can use reels or funnels to place ropes, adhesive tapes, wire, insulating tapes, and facilitate their reach. In addition, you will avoid tangling.

Hang the tools

With hooks, hangers or boards you can establish a place to put your brushes, wrenches, hammers or any tool that you think is functional to hang. In this way, you will have the tools in view and it will be easy to locate them when you need them.

Place shelves

You can put the largest tools on a shelf, if you have delicate or dangerous tools, we suggest that you use a shelf that you can secure so that it only opens with your authorization.

Workshop security measures

It is important that you take precautions from the moment you install it and during the time you use the workshop to avoid an accident. It is possible that you work with heavy tools or that need high temperatures, so you must make sure that the electrical installation is appropriate and that it is correctly coated. Check the wiring in the room, making sure there are no bad cables or extensions that have more connections than they can handle.

On the other hand, don’t forget that your workshop will be part of your house, so avoid exposing your family to any type of danger. For this, you can allocate one space for dangerous tools and another for fragile tools. If possible or you consider it necessary, you can close the workshop and install an alarm or safety mechanism that ensures that children will not be in contact with the tools.
