Реферат: My flat
We have a nice flat in the centre of Saint-Petersburg within easyreach of shops and metro stations. It is in an old four-storey building inBaskov Lane. As there are not so many storeys in it we don’t need an elevator.There is a big park within a five-minute walk from our block of flats and it isvery pleasant to walk there with a big company of friends.
Our flat is on the ground floor. It isvery comfortable and well planned. There are all modern conveniences such ascentral heating, gas, electricity, cold and hot running water and a chute tocarry rubbish down.
Our flat is very cosy. There are threerooms in our flat: a parlour and two bedrooms. Besides there is a kitchen, atoilet, a bathroom and a hall. We don’t have a balcony because our flat issituated on the ground floor.
The living-room is the largest andmost comfortable room in the flat. It is a large square room with a broadwindow looking on to the Street of Rebellion. There are beautiful browncurtains on it and our living-room is usually full of sunshine. The walls ofthe room are papered with pink wall-paper and there are a few prints andwater-colours on them. The curtains on the window match the colour of thewallpaper. The floor is covered with wall-to-wall carpeting so I can watch TVor do my homework sitting on the floor. Opposite the window there is a wallunit with lots of books, a TV-set and a video cassette recorder. To the rightof the door there is a big round table with five chairs. Opposite the tablethere is a sofa and two comfortable armchairs. We like to sit there and watchTV in the evening. In the middle of the room there is a coffee table with ahanging lamp above it. In the right-hand corner there is a sideboard withplates, dishes, cups and saucers. The room looks rather cosy. We like it bestof all, because in the evenings we gather there to have tea or coffee, watchTV, read a newspaper, talk to each other and rest.
My parents’ room is smaller than theliving-room and not so light as the window is not so broad. To the left of thedoor there is a big bed. At the foot of the bed there is a bedside cabinet withbedroom lamp on it. Opposite the bed there is a chest of drawers, where mymother keeps bedclothes. The walls are green, so are the curtains. Green is mymother’s favourite colour that is why she prefers green to other colours.
Our kitchen is small. So I wish itwere a little bit larger. My mother decorated it to her own taste. However itis planned in such a way as to make good housekeeping easy. Everything is spickand span in it. Our kitchen is very well equipped. We have a great variety ofelectric appliances of any kind: a gas-stove with an electric oven, a microwaveoven, a dish-washing machine, cooker hood and a refrigerator. We also have aspecial fridge to keep food cool in hot weather. To the left of the door thereis a square table where we usually have meals. When we have a party we lay thebig table in the living-room. Opposite the table there is a cupboard, where wekeep spoons, forks, knives, saucepans, frying pans and plates. In theright-hand corner there is a drink cupboard. The floor of the kitchen iscovered with linoleum because it is the most convenient variant for thekitchen. My father is very fond of sitting in the kitchen with a bottle offresh beer and watching a small TV-set that stands near the gas-stove.Sometimes I invite my friends and we sit in the kitchen drinking tea andtalking for hours.
The bathroom is next to the kitchen.We have hot and cold water in the tap, a shower and a bath. There is also awashing-machine opposite the bath. Near the washing-machine we have a hamperand bathroom scales. The walls of the bathroom are faced with green Dutchtiles.
Next to the bathroom is a toilet.
It is a pity our hall is very small.There is only place for a chest of drawers for shoes and a coat rack and for abuilt-in wardrobe with coat-hangers to hang clothes on.
My room is the smallest one but I likeit very much. First of all because it is my own room and secondly because it isvery cosy and light. I furnished it myself. There is a writing table at thewindow, where I would do my homework every day. To the left of the door thereis wardrobe for my clothes and shoes. In the left-hand corner there is my bedwith a bedside table at its head. Near the writing table there is a computertable with my computer on it. But the thing I really enjoy is a big mirror nearmy bed. There are actually some chairs in my room. The walls are pink and theymatch the colour of the curtains on the window. There is a thick carpet on thefloor and I like to read books sitting on it. On the walls there are someposters of my favourite musicians, photos and water-colours. I like my room asit is but from time to time I change it round. Quite often I move the bed andthe table and change some posters on the walls. Sometimes I like to stay alonein my room, especially when I’m in a bad mood. Generally I’m pleased with myroom but I wish I had a small TV-set, because I’m tired of soap operas that myparents use to watch.
In conclusion I’d like to say thatwe try our best to make our flat cosy and comfortable. Frankly speaking I wishour flat were a bit larger, but generally I like it as it is.
