Here, “unfurnished” apartments can be a different sort of unfurnished than we are used to in the US. There are usually no light fixtures (just bulbs with bare wires). Most of our friends have hired electricians install light fixtures. I am (a) lazy, and (b) cheap. As a result, we still have bulbs hanging on wires.
We had to specify whether or not we would be bringing our own kitchen. Given that we were coming from the US where the voltage is different, I felt pretty confident when I stated that we would not be bringing our own kitchen.
Everything is relative. Forget the idea of an apartment coming with a washer and/or dryer. Sometimes, you don’t get curtain rods or toilet seats!
