A woman from Durban shared pictures of the one-bedroom home she rents.

Taking to the popular Facebook group "Make your bedroom beautiful with Thembi's Linen," a woman named Mpumeh Lelo Hlapi Chili shared seven pictures of her rental pad and even asked for interior design corrections if needed.

Because there was only one room, Mpumeh's living space mirrored that of a dormitory. In the Facebook pictures, the woman's beautifully made bed stands opposite a cupboard, fridge and TV placed on a table between the two.

At the foot of the bed seems to be Mpumeh's kitchen area, as a microwave and a two-plate stove sit on top of a small kitchen cupboard. Next to that is another table with a drying rack, giving viewers an indication that that is where Mpumeh washes her dishes.

Facebook users react to woman's 1-bedroom rental home

According to most of the comments under the post, many people responded positively to the woman's humble home.

Anastasia Stacia said to Mpumeh:

"Stunning, and very neat. The curtains just need more hooks."

Providing Mpumeh with a safety tip, Musawenkosi Ncube commented:

"Try to get a stove plastic cover to protect the wall from getting dirty. You should also remove the adapter from the curtain. It's risky, otherwise, it's neat and clean."
