3. Install a central vacuum system with sweep inlets. No more repeated times bending over and trying to sweep the last bit into a dustpan. Your sweeping and vacuuming will go so much faster.

Want other uses for your toe kick? Try a modern central vacuum system. You can incorporate a hidden suction port in the toe kick so crumbs and dust can be swept away without your even bending over.
Leslie Reichert added this to How to Choose the Right Vacuum
Central vacuums. Central vacuums are a popular feature in Canadian homes. The main unit, usually housed in the basement, is connected through tubes to various ports throughout the house. A standard 35-foot-long hose with attachments can be connected to these various ports. A central vac system is definitely an investment, but the average system lasts for 20 years and adds resale value to your home. The kickplate feature of a central vacuum is also a big plus for your body: You can turn your vacuum on with your toe and sweep spills away without having to bend over.

Vacuum plate in kickboards: Easy cleaning Carrying the vacuum cleaner around the house is a bit of a chore. Consider installing a vacuum system in the kickboard of your kitchen. You simply sweep up the mess from the floor towards the vacuum plate on your kickboard and when you active it, it sucks up all the dirt that you sweep towards it.
