Cables, clutter, begone

It is common for clutter to build up in a home after it has been lived in for a period of time. Married couple Ow Khai Wan and Kimberly Chow try their best to make sure that does not happen in their five-room HDB flat in Tampines, where they have lived for a year.

The couple, both 28, subscribes to Hygge (pronounced hue-gah), a Danish way of life that embraces cosiness. In Mr Ow's book, it also means "the complete absence of anything annoying, irritating or emotionally overwhelming".

He and his wife housekeep during the weekends to keep clutter at bay. Even the sight of wires and cables is an eyesore to them.
