This is what American homes have and what we lack: 13 differences
The United States is far away from Russia, it is not surprising that life there is completely different, sometimes you will not understand it right away. In the American home, for example, it immediately feels like something is wrong. Or the dominance of the blinds scares (although the curtains are found, just less often) or two doors in the houses (plain and transparent glass confuse). If you take a closer look, the difference becomes even more obvious - there is only one door in the apartments (or apartments), but with a small hammer and without a bell, because the persistent guest will not pass unnoticed through the intercom ... and so on to infinity. But there are differences and generally fascinating - two showers in one bathroom, a dressing room even in the smallest and cheapest studio apartments, a food chopper, an ice maker, a tap water filter, a laundry ... how many differences will you find?
We offer you a fascinating tour of a typical American home and a short but fascinating story under the motto “And how is life for them,they invented what was useful and why we don’t have it. ”
1. Large and deep sink for dishes
With this rectangular "farm" sink (twice as wide and three times deeper than a typical Russian), the temptation not to wash the dishes day after day simply leaves.
2. A mason jar - multifunctional and beautiful jars
It’s easier for them - they don’t suffer from picking up cucumber glass jars and laundering the smell from them to make jam in this container. Legendary glass jars with a variety of designs are convenient for everything - they store food, spoons, forks, make vases, interior decorations ... and this photo is generally taken from a themed wedding, which was decorated with numerous glass twins of different shades.
Yes, and we have this - exclaim you and you will be wrong. Local laundries can be divided into three types. The first ones are public ones, which are accessible to everyone, work for coins and where you can meet the strangest and bizarre people. In their houses for the washing machine and dryer (these two machines are inseparable, there are no clotheslines) there is a separate room, and in the apartments of their machines there is no room at all.It is necessary to wash something - it will be somewhere inside the building and only for local residents. Here we will classify such an invention as a hamper, a transparent bucket of grids with handles, with which Americans proudly go to the laundry.
4. Dressing room
A small room for all sorts of things, which is designated as a walk-in closet, that is, you can even go into this closet and stay. There is also a crawl-in closet, which is already creeping in, but this is an attic romanticism and a life of rebuilt apartments with a strange layout.
5. Different bedside tables
And who in our country decided that the bedside tables should be twins? Americans do not think so. And still the bed is filled completely differently: at the base of the sheet on the elastic bands, and our classic steels from above and very tight, with tucked edges.
6. A shower for two
All those who have ever tried to take a shower with the second half know how sad it is to freeze in the lather, waiting for their turn. Americans in such cases, cling two souls from different sides and enjoy what is happening, or here they make such a shower from the ceiling with a large radius of action.
Such small circles cling to the kitchen above the shelves, and around the mirrors and chairs for reading books.They are still able to glow in different colors and their brightness is adjusted to one-two-three.
8. Party Accessories
Any holiday is accompanied by this - whole departments in stores are filled with themed party things. If today is July 4 - then the tubes and disposable plates for a barbecue will be sure to be in the style of the national flag and nothing else.
9. Kitchen storage
Another savior is a built-in locker for food, which does not need a refrigerator and appliances that you don’t need yet. Food is stored either in sealed bags with snaps or covered with foil, if it is a finished product.
10. Food Chopper
Toasters, blenders - all this we have for a long time, but the built in the sink shredder of food - you do not have enough! The meaning of a switch turned on as a light bulb by the switch on the wall of Garbage disposal is that more than half of household garbage can not be thrown away, but crushed and flushed down the drain. And the trash can so fragrant / leak will not, and generally less garbage. Another kitchen charm - paper towels, without which life in the US would simply stop.
11. Festive decor
A separate subtopic - wreaths on the door, which, depending on the season, can be New Year's, Easter, green in honor of St. Patrick's Day, patriotic,if it's July, in shells, if it's summer or from autumn leaves, you know when.
12. Shop in the shower
The bench is not to read and think about life, but to cut the nails there, to shave the legs ... and if everything is done, then you can of course dream. Not to say that it is everywhere, but the phenomenon is also quite frequent.
This is not our kebab on skewers and pebbles, it is an organized grill, to which are attached special tongs and other bells and whistles, and they cook everything on it - from meatballs to vegetables. And yes, the favorite American grilled cheese sandwich, with grilled cheese, you guessed it.
