Indoor bathrooms started to crop up in the homes of the most affluent Georgians, but it wasn’t until the Victorian era that an industry developed around producing plumbed-in sanitaryware.
The Victorian bathroom is characterised by dark wood, claw-foot bathtubs and luxurious decoration. The Edwardian style is much lighter, better suited to a smaller bathroom and retains the luxury of the Victorian suite without the unnecessary clutter. With only subtle differences between the two styles, it is easy to mix and match Victorian and Edwardian pieces to create the perfect bathroom for your space.
