Welcome to my studio, come inside and I’ll show you around as I road test the Vorwerk Kobold VK200 Upright Vacuum

 

Since you’re coming over, I thought I’d better just give the place a quick tidy up!

Welcome to Inside Out Style Headquarters

Today I thought I’d share with you a little more behind the scenes at Inside Out Style Headquarters and give you a glimpse into my recently renovated home.  I’ve got some pictures to share with you here!

Welcome to my studio office!

Many assume that the life of a personal stylist and style blogger is all glamour and glitz.  Let me tell you it’s definitely not, and just like for you, there is always cleaning up to be done.

Road Testing the Vorwerk Kobold VK200 Upright Vacuum

Fortunately, I’ve got a trusty friend who makes the cleaning up easy.  From my studio, to the stairs to the wooden floors of the living areas in my house, my Vorwerk Kobold  VK200 Upright Vacuum makes short work of all the tiny colour confetti dots that litter my studio (from punching the holes in the cards to make my colour swatches) and the pet hair from Cleo (my faithful whippet-shaped shadow) as she lives up here with me which makes it ideal if I have any clients who are asthma or allergy sufferers as her hair is gone in a jiffy and 99% of allergen-inducing particles are captured.

This vacuum has the strongest sucking power of any I’ve ever tried (like seriously it’s as strong as ox that has decided to enter the Olympics as a power lifter).  Yes, it’s that powerful, it lifts not only the dirt as you glide around it also lifts your carpet pile making it look new again, and still gentle as it has automatic floor detection, so when you move from carpet to a hard floor surface, the amount of suction automatically changes to suit the surface.

It’s also versatile, we have two sets of stairs in our house, one leads up to my studio, the other to the kid’s bedrooms.  When we renovated last year, we decided to have them carpeted as it both keeps the noise of people running up and down the stairs whisper quiet, plus poor Cleo had slipped and fallen down the old wooden stairs a few times and she’s much more comfortable on the carpet.  The problem is, your regular upright vacuum cleaner isn’t the best option for cleaning these, which is why I love that you can turn the Kobold VK200 into a vacuum-shaped handbag with its shoulder strap and extendable telescopic tube with the Flexo Nozzle head that is designed to getting right into the corners of your stairs without having to kneel down and bend over to vacuum them.

My family lounge with enough seating to fit the whole family – all artworks by me, photos taken on holidays in New Zealand, New York and Washington DC.

Our living areas, the open plan lounge, dining and kitchen, plus the entrance hallway are all beautiful Grey Ironbark (it’s an Australian Eucalypt variety) and even though the wood is hard, the finish does scratch, which is why I love the variable speeds and the versatile hard floor head that pivots as it encounters obstacles such as chair and table legs.

Love my nice big kitchen (the last one was so small you couldn’t have two people in it at the same time and open a cupboard or drawer!)

but  ends up in my computer keyboard (yes I often eat lunch at my desk, never stopping to rest as the blog is a monster who also demands constant feeding), so the additional soft nozzle with its adjustable furry brush end which is also great for cleaning the books on the bookshelf) is the ideal attachment to keep my keyboard working.

There are so many attachments for this vacuum:

  • ones to clean upholstery
  • ones to vacuum up the spiders (yes that’s how I like to get rid of the big hairy huntsman spiders that sometimes come into the house)
  • one that you can use on curtains, wall fabrics, fabric upholstery joints and corners and between the cushions on your couch
  • extenders to make the heads go further
  • and nozzles to vacuum the skirting boards and spider webs
  • even a nozzle to suck up drilling dust as you drill a hole

 

The Vorwerk Kobold VK200 is a total cleaning solution and is approved by the National Asthma Council.  It’s from the makers of Thermomix, so it’s an all-in-one solution for your vacuuming needs.

If you’d like to try it out, you can book an obligation free in-store demo, you can do so at Godfreys stores and online so you can experience it for yourself.  It’s really solidly built and will last and last (unlike many of the cheaper machines which you have to replace every few years) which is why it retails at $1999 and is honestly the most powerful vacuum I’ve ever used, hands down.

Thanks for stopping by!

Vorwerk Kobold VK200 Upright Vacuum RRP $1999. Available at all Godfreys stores and online.  Find your local Godfreys store or for more information on the vacuum check it out here.

  • You had me at pet hair! As a Professional Organiser, I see inside a lot of homes, and pet hair is a common theme. A lot of my pet-loving clients struggle to find a vacuum cleaner that can handle it effectively. They often ask me for recommendations, so I will have to check this one out. Thanks for the tip.

    Also, beautiful home you have there!

    • Thanks Alisha! Yes easy to use and I love the shoulder strap – particularly good for vacuuming the stairs or when I need to climb a ladder to get up to the ceiling to get spiders webs!

  • Fabulous sounding vacuum cleaner sounds extremely versatile! Thanks Insideoutstyle for the tour. What a lovely home too. I think I’d like to test run this cleaner.

  • As someone who has Labrador retrievers this sounds excellent thanks! Those dogs could shed for their country and I frequently feel like I am wading ankle deep in spare dog 😣 will check it out

  • As we’re looking at purchasing a new vacuum cleaner very soon, will definitely be checking this one. My dear husband vacuums our large home & due to his ‘dicky’ heart needs a light weight vacuum. Can’t recall your mentioning weight of vacuum. Would you consider it a heavy, medium or lighter weight one to move, push, manoeuvre?
    What a well organised looking & welcoming home you’ve made.

    • It’s easy to manoeuvre as an upright – nice gliding – it’s heavier with the upright heads, but when you take off the floor heads and put on the hose – it becomes much lighter (not heavy) – go try it out and test it for yourself!
