Simple mainstream cordless vacuum cleaners can make a good accessible option, as they avoid trip hazards and the hassle of changing plugs when moving room to room. Robotic vacuum cleaners iRobot or Neato can be convenient, especially for people whose visual impairment makes effective cleaning impractical.
