The latest trend in organization is hygge (pronounced hoogah), a new lifestyle movement that we think you might want to try and, according to Denmark’s tourism site, it means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people.
But how can you incorporate hygge in your home organization? Grab a warm cup of coffee, curl up by the fire, and read on!
Achieving hygge is simple and, luckily for you, we are already in the midst of hygge season. During the cooler months, hygge is all around us, between spending time with family members on the holidays to cozy clothing and general seasonal cheer.
The best way to implement hygge this time of the year is to add places for cozy items throughout the house. Store warm blankets in our Fabric Drawers and Bins, or create space in your living room for decorative candles or other forms of soft lighting.
Organization can also lead to feeling hygge. By having everything organized, you can have the space to do things that are more important, such as enjoying your time with the family or simply taking a few minutes for yourself.
Also, with less clutter, you can actually decorate your home the way you want to! For ultimate coziness, add rich colors in your home with dark wood finishes, such as our beautiful Premium Cube Organizers.
Hygge isn’t limited to your home! Decorating your desk area or office space with things you love, greeting colleagues, or disconnecting from your phone for a few minutes at lunch, can help you spread a friendly, happy atmosphere around your workplace.

By being organized in your daily life, you can achieve the feeling of hygge without it feeling like a chore. And always remember:
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
– William Morris
