Houses and interiors in English - be careful, you will live in this after =)

Imagine that you have decided to move. You have come to an estate agency and you have a huge selection of houses to buy. You can choose a flat in a block of flats. Among the proposed options will also be a semi-detached house (a house where there are two apartments with separate entrances. The apartments here have an adjacent wall. Sometimes such houses are called a "two-person house"); detached houses (Usually have their own garden around the house. Such houses are located in the suburbs and rural areas); you may also be offered to look at the terraced house (a row of identical or very similar houses adjacent to each other, with separate entrances to each apartment) and a country house.

If you have a considerable budget, then you will definitely be interested in such options as a mansion (luxurious detached house); a manor house or a villa (detached large country house with a garden).

If the budget does not allow for luxury, then good options can be a cottage (a small country house. Usually has one floor and an attic. Cottages can be found in the countryside or in a village) or bungalow (one-story house, summer cottage. A distinctive feature of this type of housing is that all rooms are on the ground floor).

After choosing the type of house, it's time to think about the interior of the future house. A comfortable dwelling should contain a kitchen, a bedroom, a living-room, a bathroom and a toilet. Rooms can be cozy, spacious, airy, bare, tidy, high-ceilinged or low-ceilinged, wooden -floored, open-plan, furnished, appointed. Also, rooms and dwellings can be cramped, dank (damp; damp), poky (small; uncomfortable), cluttered and darkened. You can choose the option that suits you best.

Each room is characterized by a specific interior. In order to live comfortably in a house or apartment, the bedroom and living room must have:

  • a bed
  • a chair 
  • a sofa 
  • a table 
  • a TV
  • a desk
  • a lamp
  • a clock
  • a wardrobe
  • a carpet
  • curtains 
  • shutters 
  • a bookcase
  • a bedside-table
  • a picture

But to facilitate the process of cooking in the kitchen you may need:

  • a fridge
  • a freezer
  • a cabinet - a wardrobe with drawers, a glazed cabinet;
  • a dishwasher
  • a sink 
  • a kettle
  • a cooker - kitchen stove;
  • an oven 
  • a table 
  • a cutting board - a board for cutting bread;
  • a cookbook
  • a food processor
  • napkins

Helping to maintain hygiene and just relaxing in the shower after a working day in the bathroom will be useful:

  • a bath
  • a wash basin
  • a shower
  • a tap
  • a washing machine
  • a mirror
  • a towel rod
  • a toilet paper holder
  • a laundry basket
  • a bath mat 
  • a mop 
  • soap
  • a soap dish
  • a toothbrush
  • a toothpaste 
  • a shaving cream 
  • a razor 

To describe housing, what it is and where it is located, use the construction there is (if you are talking about one object) and there are (for two or more objects).

For example:
There is a mirror in the bathroom. - The bathroom has a mirror.
There are astonishing orange curtains in the living-room.
