Home Depot house tips | Home & Garden
Home Depot experts give homeowners advice about what to have in their toolbox and toolshed this Fall.
1. Super-Combo Starter Kit: This is a great starter kit to help new and veteran homeowners build their tool collection. All of the tools within the kit can be powered by the same battery, making it more affordable to start a tool collection. This kit includes an 18V drill, circular saw, reciprocating saw, flashlight, two Lithium Ion batteries, a charger and a storage bag.
2. Hammer Drill / Driver Kit: Brushless motors use energy more efficiently than brushed motors. That means more work per charge and a longer, maintenance-free motor life.
3. Reversible Tip Paint Sprayer: A fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest ways for new homeowners to customize each room to their own taste and style, and the lightweight, rechargeable paint sprayer makes the painting process even easier.
4. 3 Gallon Wet/Dry VAC with Bonus Accessories: A car cleaner's delight! The slim profile allows the vac to fit in tight places and the expandable hose stretches to seven feet, making it easy to clean the car without having to move the vac.
5. 24" Hedge Trimmer: Trimming bushes and plants around the exterior of the home is a great way for new homeowners to put the finishing touches on their landscape. Trimmers are also very useful for chopping up debris in the yard after a stormy night. This cordless, lithium ion battery powered trimmer has a soft grip for comfortable use when landscaping and enough power to quickly cut branches up to 3/4" thick.
Top Fall Projects:
Popular DIY projects that can make a big impact and do not require a lot of skill include: interior and exterior painting, door replacement, bathroom remodeling and deck remodeling. Here are some great ideas for DIY Fall projects that won't bust your budget:
Creating a Tile Backsplash-nothing finishes off a kitchen better than a decorative tile backsplash, we can show you how to install one yourself easily and affordably. It will go a long way in making your kitchen look polished and up to date.
Repainting a room or home exterior: Putting a fresh coat of paint on a room is the most popular DIY home improvement project because it is quick, easy and can automatically transform a room or home. Completing these projects with paint rollers and brushes is in the past, as homeowners can now complete painting projects more efficiently with a cordless, rechargeable battery powered paint sprayer.
Door replacement: New doors make a statement in your home for visitors and quickly update the look of an entryway or room. Consider security, energy efficiency, style, maintenance and practicality when selecting a new door for your home. If the door is an entryway or exterior door, you should also consider the environmental elements the door will be exposed to and the durability of the door. Fiberglass doors offer the look of real wood with the resilience of steel, and are a great option for exterior doors.
Bathroom remodeling: Quick, inexpensive bathroom updates include installing new drawer pulls, faucet handles and showerheads with the same finish for a consistent look. These small installations can change the look and feel of the entire bathroom. You may also consider refinishing your cabinets or tile instead of replacing them. With the right tools, you will be able to remodel your bathroom quickly and affordably.
