Are you a homeowner who has recently decided that a remodeled kitchen is just what you need?  If so, there is a good chance that you may want to do that remodeling yourself.  If that is the case, there are a number of tools, likely a large number of tools, which you will need.  While there is a good chance that you may already have the majority of the tools needed for your next kitchen remodeling project, there is also a chance that you might not.  Rest assure though because the majority of the tools needed can be found right at one of your local home improvement stores.

When it comes to determining the tools that you will need, when starting your remodeling, it is important to determine which type of remodeling you will be doing. For instance, if you are installing a new set of kitchen cabinets, you will find that the tools needed may vary a little bit from the tools that would be used to replace your kitchen floor.  That is why it is advised that you determine exactly what in your kitchen you would like remodeled, as well as what types of tools will be needed.  Despite the fact that you may need different tools for different projects, there are a number of common tools; common tools that you may need no matter what kitchen remodeling project you are working one.

Perhaps, the most important tools to have is a hammer.  Hammers are used on a wide variety of different kitchen remodeling projects, particularly ones that require nails.  Hammers can also be used to help position a tile or countertop piece into a tight space.  Since hammers are used all around the house, sometimes on a daily basis, there is a good chance that you already own a hammer.  In fact, there is a good chance that you own more than one!

Aside from a hammer, it is also a good idea to have a collection of screwdrivers on hand. Although there is a good chance that you already own a couple of screwdrivers, you may want a multi-function screwdriver.  A multi-function screwdriver is one that easily allows you to change the screwdriver heads, in no time at all.  In fact, if you are really looking to save time, you may want to purchase an electric screw gun.  

A putty knife is another tool that you may need to use, when remodeling your kitchen.  Putty knifes are ideal when replacing a kitchen countertops or when retiling your kitchen floor.  They are great for removing unwanted or unneeded caulk or spreading around the glue that is needed to hold your kitchen tiles down.  Putty knifes are common tools, but they are not as common as hammers or screwdrivers; therefore, you may need to purchase yourself one.

It may also be a good idea to have box cutters or handsaws on hand.  If you are replacing the flooring in your kitchen or if you are installing a new laminate kitchen countertop, there is a good chance that you need to cut materials down to size. In some cases, a box cutter could do, but in other cases, you may need a handsaw. That is why it is best to have them both on hand.

In addition to the above mentioned tools, you may need to have a wrench, a measuring tape, a glue gun, a pair of pliers, and a ladder.  Of course, it is also advised that you think along the lines of safety. In addition to the above mentioned tools, it may be a good idea to have a pair of safety goggles, a face mask, work gloves, and even a hard topped construction hat, just in case.
