Lagom is a Swedish word that means “just enough.” You can apply it to all aspects of your life, including your home. This philosophy originated from the belief that balance and moderation are the secrets to happiness and contentment. Hitting the perfect spot between minimalism and maximalism is essential to achieving this concept.
Read on to learn how to implement lagom through home remodeling and design.
Let Go of What You Don’t Need
The worst enemy of lagom is clutter. This means you should eliminate things you do not need or use. Visit one room after another and remove objects that don’t serve you or bring you happiness. Give the items another look and sort what you can still use and what you need to let go.
Avoid Impulse Purchases
Another way to minimize clutter in your home is to avoid impulse buying. Purchase consciously to prevent having too many things you don’t need. Instead of following trends, choose timeless pieces. It always pays to invest in classic, high-quality items for your home.
Start With Neutrals
Choose a neutral base for your home’s color palette and give your space more dimension using accents. For instance, you can bring more life and color to light-colored walls with colorful artworks. To liven up a neutral-colored couch, place a couple of bright throw pillows.
Add Storage on Walls
Make the most of your home’s walls by installing more storage. You can add shelves or cabinets to store your belongings. Wall storage is ideal for small houses where space is an issue – it doesn’t take up much room.
Choose the Right Professionals
Another crucial thing for achieving lagom is working with the right professionals. Experienced contractors can help you implement this concept in your home. You want to work with a company that is licensed and insured. Only consider contractors who are easy to communicate with and understand your remodeling vision.
