5 iPhone Apps for the DIY Enthusiast

With as much technology that’s at your fingertips today, why hire someone to do something you can do for yourself? Never before has it been easy to fix up things around your home, without worrying about doing it incorrectly. There are countless apps for your smartphone or tablet device that will guide you step-by-step through your next DIY home project.

With so many options to choose from on the app store–there are flashlights, spirit levels, room planners, and tutorials to name but a few–here is a list of apps that are perfect for any DIY enthusiast. Grab your ladders and your toolkit – let’s get to work!

Screwfix Toolbox

screwfixScrewfix Toolbox does what a lot of other apps do individually, but puts them all into one easy to use app. This app has a bevy of DIY supplies and tools already supplied in the app, making it easy for you to choose from and select.

No matter what the task at hand is, you can go to the corresponding category on the app and find out how to resolve the task at hand. Furthermore, anything you need will be tallied, to give you an idea of what the project will cost to complete.

If this wasn’t enough, Screwfix also has a library of over 4,000 tutorials that show you exactly how to fix any project you could ever need to do around the house.

Décor Advisor

decor advisorIs there anything more frustrating than having your sights set on a new colour to paint a room, buying and mixing the paint and then going through the effort of painting, only to finish and realise you hate the colour? Décor Advisor will help you find the right tools and colours to use for your room.

It also gives you an idea of how to go about preparing your walls for painting, which can be especially helpful for corners and around outlets. With a calculator installed in the app, you can also add up your costs to see how much your total price will be for your next project.

The thing I like about this app is that you can do some interior design planning on the move without having to carry samples and colour swatches with you, so you could easily make use of your commute into and from work to get ahead in your refurb plans. It’s also very affordable, because this app is free. You can’t get much cheaper than that!

Handy Man DIY

Handy Man DIYWhile the previous two apps on this list are free, this one is £1.49, but worth it in every way.

Handy Man DIY acts as a complete project manager tool for your next DIY project. You can divide your project into rooms and ideas, and then make a task list for completing the project in a timely manner.

Furthermore, you can link to the Handy Man YouTube channel to get hints and ideas how to better go about doing your project to make it less of a headache for you.

iHandy Carpenter

If you do not have iHandy Carpenter on your smartphone, you probably shouldn’t even take your hammer out of your toolbox. This app is the absolute number one important app to have before you start a DIY project.

iHandy Carpenter


It has a level, a compass, a ruler and an angle measurement tool that will help you in every way that you need for your project. Not only is this one of the most important apps you’ll need, but also one of the most popular apps in the app store.

Before you do anything, download this app.


Your iPhone has a built-in gyroscopic sensor, which means the device is aware of movement. What this means is that you can use it as a spirit level. So rather than having to carry a metre-long metal or plastic spirit level, you could just use the Clinometer app on your iPhone. It’s just as accurate and because the iPhone itself is so small and the edges are very straight, you can use it on just about anything and still get a very reliable reading.

Clinometer app

This app is a must-have if you are into your DIY, but it is worth noting there are other apps that do the same thing, possibly costing less. Clinometer currently costs £1.49.

There are certainly more app available for the DIY enthusiast. However, these apps are a great starting block to begin your next at home project. Before getting out your paint brush or screwdriver, download these apps to make your next project easier to complete.
