The Best Vacuum for Newlyweds + Rug Inspired Color Palettes

I have a fun post today for you as I was recently gifted a Soniclean VT Plus S-200 upright vacuum {the first vacuum cleaner to combine suction with sonic technology}. Now, you might think I'm crazy, but I love vacuuming and seeing how fresh the room can look when finished. But . . . with the vacuum I had been using {a canister and upright in one} the task was always a big chore as it was super heavy. With the Soniclean being incredibly light {only weighs 10.5 pounds}, I'm able to carry it in one hand up the stairs to our bedrooms. Vacuuming is now enjoyable and happening MUCH more often.

The Soniclean VTplus {priced under $250} is the perfect choice for newlyweds to add to their wedding registry list or for gifting the happy couple {if several guests go in together on the gift}.  Since you obviously need a rug to vacuum - how about these lovely patterned area rugs? The color palettes that can be created from these rugs are great inspiration for decorating the entire room of your new home together as husband and wife. Following the color palettes you will be able to see some of the Soniclean's great features:

Soniclean VTplus Features Include:
• produces 12,000 sonic vibrations per minute to dislodge dirt before vacuuming it up
• powerful enough to lift 150 lbs
• fragrance dispensing system that emits a fresh laundry scent while you clean {this isn't required for the vacuum to work as I chose to not use it}
• HEPA filter bag system designed for anti-allergen filtration {which is super important for me, I have always been using vacuums with bags}
• low profile design to vacuum under furniture with ease {and it can be stored flat if space is an issue}
• sophisticated jam protection system automatically shuts off the vacuum if it senses an item is jammed in the brushroll
• green "Paramagnetic" motor uses 50% less electricity than other upright vacuums {this probably explains why it's not blowing any fuses like my other vacuum would}
• weighs only 10.5 lbs
• 35 Foot power cord
• 3 Year motor warranty
• lifetime belt warranty

*** In closing, the Soniclean VT Plus is a tiny bit louder than my previous vacuum, but considering the carpets look brand new again after being vacuumed, I'm ok with that. It's also amazing to see how low I can maneuver it under furniture like our couch. It's also not as wide which means it fits between furniture and tables easier. I will obviously have to purchase a separate canister vacuum for cleaning baseboards and upholstery, but those are typically not that costly. I can honestly say that this would be a vacuum I highly recommend.

PS: While I was gifted a Soniclean VT Plus to review,
the opinions & thoughts in this post are all my own.
