In the original novel, the Bucket's House was a large house composed of 27 rooms. Charlie's old grandparents slept on the one of the many beds in the house in it's infinite rooms, and were far too tired to exit from the bed. Charlie, Mr. Bucket and Mrs. Bucket all slept in their own custom rooms. It is possible there is 2 kitchens in the house, and that the laundry was done with a machine. And it travels through time and space.
