居 means to live, 装 means to decorate. 家居家装 in this sentence means the commodities or services related to furnitures, home-use devices, interior design and domestic decoration, that is, things you have to spend money on before you move into your new house.

  • So it's 'fixtures and fittings'?

  • @Pedroski You can comprehend the sentence in this way. 家装 is short for 家庭装修, which is just decoration. But for 家居, in my opinion, it's a little hard to find a direct and accurate translation. It includes the actual things you need to add to your house such as furnitures, and something else such as the environment and management, I mean the management of the building, the duty of the janitor.

  • @Pedroski IMO the closest English word for 家居 is 'home' when it's used as the name of a category such as in a store. 家居 spans across furnishing, fittings, decoration, household goods, kitchen supplies, bedroom necessities, etc.
