1. Friends wonder if you’ll ever finish furnishing your house.
Finns like an uncluttered house. Others would call it half empty. A sofa is OK, but throw pillows? Those are clutter. Art books on the coffee table? More clutter. A coffee table? Definitely clutter.
2. Your house will never be clean.
It may be the cleanest house in town, but it will never be as clean as a Finnish house. You may scour the house for weeks before Finns come to visit, but not until they casually offer to clean up after dinner will your kitchen actually get clean.
