3 Must-Have Time Saving Tools For DIY

Living in a house with 4 children can be busy, hectic and cramped. With so much going on, there’s often little time to focus on the house, with every waking hour dedicated to the family. This can mean that your home’s interior can feel neglected. Plus, with kids running around, things can become marked or damaged.

A little wear and tear in a home is fine – it makes it feel more lived in and family-friendly, right? But at a certain point, it becomes necessary to do some DIY, to make sure your home is a safe and welcoming environment for your kids.

To speed up the process, add these time-saving tools to your toolbox, to make DIY faster and less painful.

Nail Gun

Whether you’re upcycling or updating an old piece of furniture, putting together flat packs, securing a loose skirting board, or repairing the garden fence, they all require one thing: nails. However, hammering nails can be time consuming, loud, and if you’re not watching what you’re doing, painful.

To save time – and your fingers – invest in an SGS cordless nail gun. Producing loads of power and little noise, you can complete simple DIY tasks in seconds. Plus, with no cord, you don’t have to worry about little (or big!) feet tripping over cables.

Mitre Saw

Using a manual saw can be hard work and it can also be difficult to ensure a straight, precision cut. Like all DIY equipment, it’s also dangerous around children. But if you need to carry out some home improvements, then a saw is an essential piece of kit.

Instead, an electric mitre saw could save you time and arm ache. A lightweight and mobile piece of equipment, a mitre saw can be transported around the house or garden. Providing exact measurements, a mitre saw can help you get the job done first time. Just make sure to pack away out of reach when not in use.

Drill Driver

As a responsible adult and parent, you probably already own a drill – or at least know someone you can borrow one from should the need arise. While they are much easier and faster than a manual screw driver, they can sometimes lack power.

To make DIY even quicker, add a drill driver to your home garage collection. With more power and functions than a normal electric drill, an impact driver can provide extra force, drilling through tougher materials.


Although tools aren’t the most thrilling thing to spend your money on, invest in these to speed up your DIY and make your home more family-friendly.
