Petit Trianon: Queen's Bathroom

The bathroom of the Queen was transformed into a bathroom for the Duchesse d'Orlèans in 1837. The room is not very large but it is still a testimony to the rising awareness of personal hygiene. The bath tub is complete with two taps for hot and cold water. As can be seen on the floor plan there are some small rooms near the bathroom - one of these is a toilet. I love that even the toilet is made of polished wood!

Notice the shelf for the candlestick - imagine just having that as a light source
