Linoleum and a few other words
Hola todos,

Do any of you know how to say linoleum? Which the dictionary here says linóleo, but I want to confirm that's right.

The same goes for baseboard, grout, tile, if you could just confirm what the right words for these are.

baseboard = moldadura, plinto, rodapié, zoclo
grout = lechada
tile = azulejo

Muchísimas gracias! :)

grout = lechada
(other related term mortero: mortar)
tile = walls:azulejo floor: baldosa roof:teja

How about . . .
What about "losa," do they use that there to mean floor tile?
Y losa, se utiliza para decir "floor tile" allá?

I say baldosa or baldosín

In some areas piso de losa means a tile floor. But be careful because loza means china (as in dishes), and in the Americas has the same pronunciation as losa.
