Upstairs Toilet

Later in the Victorian period, an indoor toilet (lavatory) upstairs began to be introduced. This was usually in a separate room for health reasons. Most Edwardian houses had an upstairs toilet.

Décor was similar to that in the Bathroom.

The bowl and high-level cistern were ceramic, with lead piping, and a wooden toilet seat.

Sanitary fittings are covered in more detail in Design by Element.
