If you find yourself dragging your feet with the weekly chores, maybe its just because you don’t have the right tools. As a design aficionado, you’ll be much more inclined to dust those Roman shades with a beautifully crafted feather duster than with a flimsy piece of cloth-covered plastic that you hide deep in the back of a closet. Thankfully, there are designers who feel the same and have created cleaning tools attractive enough to actually be left out on display in your home — even more incentive for you to pick up the dustpan more than once a week! Shop our favorite housekeeping tools that bring a new meaning to functional design.
