Coming Clean – The Evolution of Bathrooms

Bathrooms have changed a lot over the past 200 years and have come a long way (and so have our cleaning habits!). This infographic explores the evolution of bathrooms since the 18th century – from chamber pots in bedrooms all the way through to fully-functioning modern, luxury wet rooms.

Today, we take for granted the privilege of having our own bathroom; in pre-Victorian times, bathrooms would have been shared with all of your neighbors and sewage simply thrown outside! It’s now standard to have an indoor bathroom, and we certainly wash far more frequently than the Victorians did (twice a month on average).

This infographic covers the changes and developments through pre-Victorian bathrooms, Victorian bathrooms and 20th century bathrooms.
