I'm building a list of vocabulary words to practice. Starting with words around the house. I have a couple of questions about some of them. I realize that what I find with online (or offline) dictionaries will not always reflect what is actually used ... especially with ones that only learn to speak spanish in the home, versus school.
I have found some suggestions for "family room."
- la habitacion para familia
- la estancia
- el cuarto de estar
Would one of these be used or a combination? Or, something completely different?
I learned "living room" to be la sala. However, there is also la estancia and el salon (accents missing, obviously). I believe from the examples that I have found that salon is used for more formal out of the home occasions, like beauty salon (salon de belleza). I think estancia just means large room.
How would you say "family room" and "living room?"
Also, would bedroom just be "el cuarto?" (Like ... "Go to your room.") When might you use "el dormitorio?" Are there any other words for "bedroom?"
Thanks in advance.
