Numatic Henry HVR 160-11

We make no apologies for including a Numatic Henry; any vacuum cleaner that has 4.6 stars out of 5 from over 3000 customer reviews must be doing something very right. It’s a no-frills, no-flash vacuum that offers very powerful suction (600w motor), bulletproof internals and a smiling face on the outside. What more could you want?

Vax Mach Air Upright

A proper upright vacuum cleaner for £80 is impressive, particularly coming from a well-known brand like Vax. It’s corded but that means you can use the 850W of power for as long as you like and the 1.5-litre bin allows you to clean for longer with less frequent emptying. Lightweight and easy to carry up and down the stairs, the Vax Mach includes a 2-in-1 dusting brush/crevice tool and a one-year guarantee.

Shark HV390UK DuoClean

Sitting just below £200, the Shark covers a broad scope of duties thanks to its smart design. Although corded, it is light enough to be used handheld and there’s 10 metres of it too. Use the extension for floor work and there’s a powered brush designed specifically for pet hair, yet it still folds down for compact storage too.

Bosch AdvancedVac 20 Wet and Dry

Rarely short of a tool for every job, Bosch’s take on a wet and dry vacuum cleaner typically covers all the bases you could need, and possible a few more. Not only does it do the standard wet and dry duties, you can also hook it up to Bosch power tools for automatic clean up of dust and debris, plus it also has a blow function for clearing up outdoors.

Shark NV601UK Lift-Away Upright

Lift-Away Technology gives you the ability to convert your vacuum from a traditional upright into a portable vacuum. The inventively-named NV601UK comes with multiple tools and accessories, while the HEPA filters and Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology holds 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum - according to Shark. Enhanced swivel steering also makes the lightweight Shark lift away even more flexible in tight areas.

Featuring the patented Shark Powered Lift-Away, the pod on the NV681UKT can be detached while the brush in the head continues to rotate, so you can reach right under furniture where traditional uprights may struggle.
