The vacuum cleaner is one of those home appliances. You know the type: absolutely necessary, totally unattractive, and awkward to store. Vacuum cleaner storage can be a toughie due to its shape and size – do you keep it in the broom closet? In the laundry room? Where can you put it so as not to cause a tripping hazard or an unsightly decorating hazard?
While there’s no magic solution, there are certainly plenty of ideas that make stashing away the vacuum easier (and prettier). First consider your vacuuming habits: where’s your carpet? Do you have an upright of a canister? How often do you vacuum?
Based on your answers to those questions, decide where it’s most convenient for you. If you don’t vacuum frequently, you may not mind keeping it out of the way and dragging it out when necessary; if all of your carpet is upstairs, you’ll want to find a spot for the vacuum there rather than downstairs.
Once you have the vicinity determined, check out these great vacuum cleaner storage ideas to see which may work for you!
Pantry space? Extra or weird-shaped cabinet? Vacuums don’t take up that much space, so there’s a chance you can make it fit into a tall cabinet. Bonus points for mounted hooks for hose and attachment pieces!
