Also, most Americans have both a washer AND a separate dryer, and they tend to be big too! - A lot of American homes have gorgeous finished basements that serve as another living space. It might be in the form of a guest room or a recreational area to hang out in. - Fire safety is taken so seriously in the States that landlords can get in big trouble if they don’t immediately fix a non-working smoke alarm for their tenants. - Low-sitting toilets actually serve a purpose – being closer to the ground is a healthier and more natural way to, ya know, do your numbers.- In the US, sinks always have just one faucet, and you can customize the temperature of the water however you like.- Most families are totally ok with wearing shoes inside around the house, as long as they’re not muddy or anything. Sure, there are those American families that don’t do it. - Apparently in Europe, you have a switch to either allow the power to flow by turning a button on or cutting it by switching it off.

Plus, most neighborhoods have rules about it!
