We've rounded up a few different kinds of vacuums that will fit your lifestyle and serve your home well. From stick vacuums to robot vacuums to stand up vacuums, there's something for everyone to make this chore as enjoyable and efficient as possible.

The Best Large Floor Vacuum

If you just can't give up your large-and-in-charge floor vacuum, that's completely OK. They still bring the power in a way that's unmatched by other models.

Plus, it has a self-cleaning brush roll so you never have to worry about it getting clogged, as well as a dusting brush and pet crevice tool so that you can get all of those little nooks and crannies.

The Best Robot Vacuum

Robot vacuums are definitely one of the best convenience-based cleaning supplies. They're best if you have a large living area, and especially great if you are constantly cleaning up pet dander or facing off with constant dust bunnies.
