We have a very nice flat rather far from
the centre of the city. It is in a many-storeyed house.
As there are so many storeys in
the building it has two lifts.
Our flat is on the fourth floor. It has
all modern conveniences such as
gas, electricity, running water,
central heating and a chute to
carry the rubbish down.
There are three rooms in it: a
sitting-room, a study and a bedroom. And we also have a kitchen, a bathroom and
a hall. Our kitchen is large, but unfortunately the corridor is rather small.
Our sitting-room is used as a living-room.
It is the largest and most comfortable room in the flat. We meet our guests
here. In the middle of the room you can see a round table covered with a white cloth. There are six chairs round it.
There is a hanging lamp above
the table. To the right of the dinner-table there is a wall-unit which has several sections: a sideboard, a wardrobe and
some shelves. At the opposite wall there is a piano with a piano stool before it.
Between the two large windows there is a
little table with a colour TV set on it. Our TV set is of the latest model. In
the evening our family gather in the sitting-room to watch TV. As for me, I
like different thrillers and action films.
A small square table, a divan-bed and a standard lamp are in the left-hand
corner. This table is for newspapers and magazines. I like to read very much.
The walls of the living-room are
light-green and there are water-colours
The bedroom is smaller than the living-room
and not so light as there is only one window in it. In this room there are two
beds with a bedside-table between
them. An alarm-clock and a
small lamp with a pink lamp-shade are
on the table. In the left-hand corner there is a dressing-table with a big mirror.
There are different combs, because
I like to brush my hair here.
In this room we have a built-in wardrobe with coat-hangers to hang clothes on.
There is a thick carpet on the
floor and plain brown curtains
on the window.
In the study there is not much furniture,
only the most necessary pieces. It
has a writing-desk with drawers. I keep pens, pencils, paper,
exercise-books and a few dictionaries here. To my mind, it's very convenient to
work in this room.
I like my flat very much.
