My house was built in 1851, so tile is out of the question, but since it is a Victorian and powder rooms often had painted scenes on the floors, I was wondering if a poured resin painting on the floor would be do able?

I have a 1927 house with a bathroom where the floor slopes. Actually, every room in my house slopes (and yes, I have had the foundation supported several times). When I bought the house, it had a tile floor in the bathroom, but I had to have a section removed due to a leak. The subfloor was replaced in that one area (the rest was fine), and I had real linoleum laid for the entire floor. The floor is narrow and longer (the entire bathroom is only 48 sq. ft.), but the linoleum has been down for 11 years now and looks the same as when it was installed. I used a commercial grade from Armstrong, and it was well worth it. The great thing is that it stands up to the blasts from the base and won't crack, plus it minimizes the slope of the floor. It's also super easy to clean - I either wet or dry Swiffer it and it's good to go. Highly recommended!

It doesn't matter the age of the house- tile could be a choice. It would just depend on the structural elements. I see no reason why a resin couldn't be used either.
