Do you have a few jobs to do around your home? Or just bought one of our self-assembly wardrobes? Check out our hand tools and power tools. You'll find lots of useful stuff, from hammers to spirit levels to electric screwdrivers that will help you put your new items together in record time!
Did you know that it was once believed that our ability to create and use tools set us uniquely apart from the rest of the animal kingdom? Now we know that’s largely untrue but what is true is that having the right tool for the job is half the work.
With the correct tools and a bit of know-how, you can tackle almost any home project with ease.
Getting familiar with your hand tools and power tools
Hand tools, like hammers, screwdrivers, pliers, wrenches and spirit levels, are must-haves in any toolbox. These tools come in a variety of sizes and designs to fit different needs and can be used for a wide range of tasks, from basic repairs to complex installations.
Power tools, on the other hand, can help you get your job done more quickly and efficiently. They can be especially helpful for larger projects or when working with tougher materials.
One of the great things about hand tools and power tools is that they can be used by both professionals and amateurs alike. This is where IKEA comes in, making these chores more manageable by providing complete tool sets, power tool kits and cordless power tools that can do more than half of your work for you.
With a high utility value, it is no surprise that our 17-piece tool set is an iconic best seller and has been for a long time. This handy tool set, with a transparent cover, contains four of the most important and basic tools: a hammer, an adjustable spanner, a pair of pliers and a screwdriver. The screwdriver allows 12 differently sized and shaped heads to be pushed into it. The hammer comes with a thick rubber ‘silencer’ that fits onto the head to avoid damaging more delicate surfaces and excess noise.
Need some more power?
Just as much as basic hand tools, power tools are essential for anyone who wants to tackle DIY projects around the house or assemble furniture like a true professional.
Electric screwdrivers, drills, and saws are some of the most popular types of power tools. They can help you assemble furniture, cut wood or metal, and drill holes more easily and accurately. If you prefer to drill holes rather than hammer nails, there are two common options for electric screwdrivers: the regular electric screwdriver or a combined screwdriver with drill. The electric screwdriver will save you the most electricity, retain the charge longest and have a battery longer life.
