Although a broom and a mop can do wonders in some places, a vacuum cleaner is essential in most homes. But considering which vacuum to choose, with price, filtration, cleaning performance and energy efficiency can make choosing the right vacuum a task for those who just want to get their home cleaned, easily and quickly. These are our personal favorite vacuum models, representing a wide array of budgets and styles.

This new Miele vacuum cleaner is called the Neptune, and it looks perfect since it’s light and portable, on top of looking pretty fetching in turquoise! The reason why it’s offered in turquoise is that Pantone declared this color the Pantone color of 2010.

If there’s one thing that frustrates us it’s cleaning windows. Don’t get us wrong, the glass on the inside is easy to clean, but a lot of us live in condos or apartments, making it impossible to clean the outside windows. Sure, these will be cleaned by the landlord at some point, but wouldn’t it be cool to just be able to clean them anytime?
