The homes of wealthy Victorian families were very cluttered. Furniture was large, bulky and usually made of wood. As many pieces as possible were packed into every room, demonstrating to any visitor the wealth of the household.

Many working class families, however, could not afford and did not have the space for large pieces of furniture for their homes. Often a bed, sideboard, table and some chairs were the only items in a house.
