Bathroom Remodeling Project From 1883

When restoring Victorian houses, the bathroom is the most difficult room to recreate to the earliest period of the house. Since many century-plus old houses did not have bathrooms in their original house plans, it is usually the most difficult room to restore. This is a view of a Victorian bathroom floor plan from 1883 bathroom design that is fitted up with "the most approved modern appliances" of the day.  The engraving represents "the latest and best sanitary appliances" from the New York store, J. L. Mott Iron Works. In 1882, the J. L. Mott Iron Works of 88 Beekman Street, New York, sold the porcelain-lined baths, and the Hygeia and Demarest water-closet for the remodel bathroom project.

It is advertised as "non-absorbent of moisture, unaffected by atmospheric agencies, such as oxidation, etc., which speedily attack and deteriorate wood, zinc and other metal goods of this character."  The porcelain bathtub in this Victorian bath design claims to be not only durable but to be superior in cleanliness in that "they entail no labor in cleaning, a simple wiping with a sponge or cloth being all that is required to obtain a perfectly clean surface." The bathroom fixtures were sold by J. L. Mott Iron Works and were not only for private dwellings, but likewise for hotels and public institutions.

Victorian Bathroom

Most old houses are big and roomy with four bedrooms on the second floor. They have, however, only one small bathroom, perched inconveniently on a landing halfway up the main staircase. You probably have made rough sketches of the perfect period bathroom you want to have—sketches that outline in general your ideal space, but which, due to your lack of experience in architectural design, fail to show the very detail to make this room different. But with interior design software, every armchair architect can create anything from a simple floor plan to straightforward blueprint style diagrams to multidimensional computer models—quick and easy. Take your bathroom design to the next level with free 3D bathroom design software. While there are plenty of options available on the market, they can be quite expensive and if you are only designing a small bathroom design, you might not be able to justify the cost. However, there are several free design software download options available which may be more than enough if you are only a DIY remodeler.
