Looking for a small vacuum cleaner to clean a compact home, and which can be stored in a tiny space? You’ve come to the right place.
It’s 2019, and with high house prices, micro living has come to many of us. On the upside, there’s less space to clean and furnish, it can be cosy, and bills are low so you can spend on nights out and holidays.
The problem? Storage space. While the point of living in a small home, apartment or flat is that you don't have to over buy, and you can keep track of everything you own, there is the issue of not having space to store items. Clothes are a whole other story, but let’s focus on cleaning items here.
We all have space under the sink for a bottle of kitchen spray, some washing-up liquid and laundry detergent, but we’re talking about the things that help you clean your home every few days – mops, vacuum cleaners, steam mops, window vacs and everything else Mrs Hinch loves.
Yes, even though your floor space is minimal, owning a vacuum cleaner is essential. And while the only storage space you have may look ideal for your shoe collection, it’ll be put to even better use storing one of these small vacuums. This way, you can get the cleaning done in a jiffy.
We’ve found the best small vacuum cleaner deals for those on a budget but in desperate need of a space-saving solution. Scroll to read...
Gtech HyLite Bagged Cordless Vacuum Cleaner | £169.99 at Argos
OK, we’re slightly cheating here because this one isn’t on a deal, but it is really affordable at just under £170 and, as you can see from the photo above, it’s a pretty amazing piece of kit. The Gtech HyLite is space saving when it comes to storage because it can be completely taken apart and popped in a drawer. It’s compact, light, can be transformed to a handheld model, and it can clean for up to 20 minutes before running out of battery.View Deal
The Shark IF250UK is an ideal small vacuum cleaner if you want to invest in a good model now, as it can be used to clean both large and small homes with ease, and it will fold down to store away. It’s also completely freestanding so can be left anywhere in your home – perhaps at the back of a wardrobe or behind a sofa.
In a nutshell, this model is cordless (no wire storage), it can be converted to handheld when needed, and its special hose can bend under furniture to save you getting down on your hands and knees to do so. After charging it can run for a total of 44 minutes, which is plenty of time to vacuum a small house twice over.
Bosch BCH625KTGB Athlet | Was £259.99 now £233 at Amazon
The Bosch Athlet cordless vacuum is a one-piece machine that requires no faffing or changing parts with the exception of its removable bag. In terms of storage, it’s rather sleek and can be propped up against a wall in a cupboard (or wardrobe) and forgotten about until your next clean. Results-wise, the vacuum can clean for up to 60 minutes on a single three hour charge. It features an easy to empty dust bin, and it’s very light to carry at just 3kg.View Deal
Looking for a vacuum that’s quick to get out if there’s a spillage? The oh-so popular Shark Handheld vacuum has your name on it. While we wouldn’t recommend it for cleaning an entire house, it’s a top option for quick clean-ups as it’s powerful, lightweight and easy to use. After charging it can be used for a total of eight minutes, and when it comes to storing the machine away, it comes with a handy little stand to do so. You could put it on your kitchen worktop, as above, inside a cupboard in the kitchen, on the top of a wardrobe, or just about anywhere else for that matter.
Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S | Was £219.99 now £199.99 at Amazon
A robot vacuum cleaner is a good option when you’re after a very small machine. This one is the slimmest model yet, meaning it can be stored under a bed or wardrobe, on top of the fridge or inside a kitchen cupboard, for example. We could rave about this model all day long as it ticks all the boxes and is a bargain, but right now, all you need to know is that it does a great job of cleaning everywhere in the home and it can work for 100 minutes from one charge.View Deal
