We have a nice flat in a new block of flats. Our flat is on the fifth
floor of a nine-storied building. It has all modem conveniences: central
heating, running hot and cold water, electricity, gas, a lift and a chute to
carry rubbish down.
We have a three-room flat which consists of a
living-room, a bedroom, a
study (which is also my room), a kitchen, a bath-room and a toilet. There
are also two closets in our flat. Our flat has two balconies.
The living-room is the largest and most comfortable one in the flat. In the
middle of the room we have a square dinner-table with six chairs round it.
To the left 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 and a piano stool before it. To the right there is a little
table with colour TV set on it. Opposite the TV set there are two cozy
armchairs. A divan-bed and a standard lamp are in the left-hand corner. In
front of the armchairs there is a small round table for newspapers and
magazines. There is a thick carpet on the floor. Two water-colours hung on
the wall above the divan-bed. In the evening we usually draw the curtains
across the windows, and a red lampshade gives a warm colour to the room.
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, two dressing-tables
and a wardrobe. In the corner of the bedroom there is a small colors TV set.
On the dressing table there is an alarm-clock and small lamp with green
Our study is the smallest room in the flat, but in spice of
it, it is
very cozy. There isn't much furniture in it, but there are a lot of shelves
full of books. It has a writing table, an armchair and a bookcase too. A
small round table with cassette-recorder is standing in the right-hand
corner of the study. Besides there is a small sofa near the wall opposite
the bookcase. This room was my father's study, but as I grew older, it has
become my room. And in my opinion it is the best room in our flat. My
friends used to come to my place to have a chat or to play chess in the
evening, and they say my room is very comfortable. I share their opinion.
