The living room is a large communal space where we spend most of our waking ours with friends and family. Comfort, cleanliness, and entertainment are key areas we focus on here, and especially because we spend a lot of time with guests here. We put to the test a lineup of products to help you find ones worthy of your living room.
We installed and tested seven popular bike racks and chose the Delta Cycle - Michelangelo as the best bike rack for an apartment, the Ibera as the best horizontal bike rack and the Racor - B-R1 as the best vertical bike rack.
After months of research and testing top designs for power, handling and dust control, we chose the Kenmore - Elite as the best canister vacuum. The unique multi-mode floor head switches quickly between carpets and bare floors, and the power and dust control are competitive with vacuums that are double or triple the price.
We tested the highest rated and most popular flip chairs and selected Your Zone Bed as the best flip chair. It's the most comfortable and easiest to convert from a living room chair to a bed for overnight guests.
After four weeks testing four top-ranked dehumidifiers in the muggiest conditions we could create with a room full of humidifiers, we’ve found the best dehumidifier overall to be from Frigidaire. It's the most efficient and the fastest unit, and it looks great too.
After three weeks using the top six models on the market, consultation with air quality experts and three years of long-term tests, we are still happy to name the Winix -5300-2 as the best air purifier for keeping our lungs clean.
We researched the best new window air conditioners and stress-tested the top models. After three months of extended testing, we've confirmed that the new Frigidaire 8,000 BTU is the best window unit for most people.
We spent more than 60 hours conducting focus groups, testing our finalists and consulting with doctors and chose the RENPHO - Shiatsu as the best foot massager. If you're interested in improving circulation in your feet and legs, we also recommend the MedMassager.
We tested eight portable AC units for 150+ hours over five summers so you do not have to break a sweat finding the best unit. Check out our cooling comparison data, and learn if a single or dual hose model is better for you.
