    Smile

    Counter= el mostrador
    sink = el fregadero
    dichvwasher = el lavaplatos
    toilet = el wáter
    Cabinet = el armario

    and if you say "horno" then you refer to an oven...so you should say "estufa"

    greetings

    Hi Steve! As you can see there are many ways to name the same thing according to the country. So basically it depends on the flavor that you want to give the translation. A good way to check is using the online dictionary from the Real Academia Española.

    Kitchen counter = mesada
    kitchen sink = pileta
    bathroom sink = lavamanos
    dishwasher = lavaplatos
    toilet = inodoro
    cabinets = alacenas/armarios de la cocina o baño

    Real Ac. Española

    En España diríamos:

    Kitchen counter = Encimera
    bathroom counter = Repisa
    kitchen sink = Fregadero
    bathroom sink = Lavabo
    dishwasher = Lavavajillas
    toilet = Váter / Inodoro
    kitchen cabinets = Armario / muebles de la cocina
    bathroom cabinets = Armario del cuarto de baño

    ¡Has cogido unas palabras que varían mucho de un país a otro!
