There's a bed, a table and 2 chairs, or There are 2 chairs, a bed and a table. (as Gohar said) Actually both sentences about the house seem a little unnatural. I think if you say 1, it's better: There's 1 big room in my house, or.. My house has 1 big room (=the other rooms are not very big)

"there are" is used when the quantity right next to it is plural. There are two men and a dog in that street. same goes for "there is" when the quantity right after is a singular: There is a dog and two men in that street. you can't say: "in my house there are a chair" because chair is a singular. You will have to say "in my house there are chairs*" there is a big room in my house and my house has a big room are both correct sentences.
