Built in for Roomba? Other floor cleaning thoughts
I just got a Roomba. Greatest thing ever! I DESPISE vacuuming (though I don't mind sweeping with a broom). So this has me wondering:
Has anyone ever seen any type of a little "low door cabinet" that could be incorporated into . . . I don't know -- the back of a kitchen island, or a built-in, or other . . . to hold the Roomba? I'm thinking of a little low door with an outlet inside. Or maybe a little cut-out in the bottom of a chest? I've put it in a corner of the family room, but I'm wondering if I couldn't do better when we build.
I'm also wondering about built-in vac systems:
I don't really want to do a full-fledged system with hoses and all. I'm not planning to have all that much carpet -- mostly hardwood and tile.
What I would like is to have a couple of those "suckers" that serve as dustpans and "suck up" the dust you collect with a broom. Can I have those without having a full-fledged system?
