Home might be just a state of mind but you would obviously want your house to feel warm and comfortable. There is a lot that goes into turning your house into your dream home. Here is how you get started with it.

Know your house

•          Sockets are the UK three pin style, voltage is 240v
•          Water and electricity are both provided by Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) through a mainline connection.
•          Domestic gas is supplied in the form of cylinders by several local providers as well as Woqod, which is the sole supplier.

Good to know

•          It will cost you approximately between QR4000 to QR8000 to completely furnish a room, depending on your taste

Depending on the kind of house you are moving into, setting up the house will vary.
•          Fully Furnished (F//F)
•          Semi Furnished (S/F)
•          Unfurnished (U/F)

Purchasing furniture

Depending on your taste there are a lot places you can get great furniture from in Qatar. There are many high-end branded stores for furniture and fixtures as well as stores that make customised furniture to your taste.
