“Mi casa es su casa” or “mi casa es tu casa” is a Spanish expression meaning  “my house is your house.” This polite expression is an extension of Spanish hospitality that is widely used when entering a home, a way of saying "welcome" and "make yourself at home."

A typical Spanish home or una casa is similar to any home. It has a living room (una sala), a kitchen (una cocina), a bathroom (un baño), a bedroom (un dormitorio), and more. But do you know how to talk about the home in Spanish?
