What did it look like inside the Titanic?
A number of design styles from different periods in history were used in the interior of Titanic. “Shipbuilder” magazine said the styles and designs used in Titanic’s interior were “sufficiently diverse as to suit the likes and dislikes of any passenger.” Some first class suites even had working fireplaces.
The state rooms for first class passengers were comparable to the best hotels on land. Perhaps the most famous of the public rooms is the Cafe Parisian, an informal veranda cafe decorated in Colonial style with wicker furniture. The Grand Staircase with its domed ceiling and carved balustrades is probably the most recognisable interior feature of the ship. It extended over six floors.
Second and third class cabins and public rooms did not reach such high standards of opulence but cabins for steerage passengers would have looked much better than the accommodation that some of the emigrating passengers were used to in their own homes. Some of the cabins took just two people, others up to ten. The third class dining room and lounge were finished in white enamel and a smoking room was panelled in oak.
