Generally people stay put for longer here and invest a little more in appartements than frequent moves.
Generally people go to Ikea and buy the cheapest crap they can find :-)

Seriously, you don't need curtains as most places have (outdoor) blinds. And light fittings are cheap but it is a hassle to have to put them in. Pretty sure there wasn't one in my kitchen when I moved in.

The washers work a lot slower here than American washers, you can count up to or over 2 hours per cycle sometimes
That's because the way electricity works the 230 volts can only turn the motors half the speed of 110... And they're *tiiiiny*. I mean, have you seen them? How does one fit XXXXXL jeans and flannel shirts in there?!
