Rooms, furniture, household items in English

English note that lists all the names of the rooms in a house and the furniture room by room.

The house in English can be called in two ways:

  • house= whole like building, structure, construction;
  • home= intended as a place where one lives, home.

The term ” At home ” is what is used to say that you are at home.

There are various types of houses, the English use the term ” flat ” to indicate the apartment , while the Americans use the term ” apartment “.

All English terms related to the house (rooms and objects in the rooms) are written in the singular form. Furthermore, some terms (eg chair / chair) are repeated because they are also present in several rooms, however we recommend that you look at all the tables before saying that a specific object is missing.
