Wall hung toilets buyers guide
Few bathroom fittings are more elegant, compact or stylish than the wall hung toilet. When you want minimal design across every aspect of your bathroom, a wall hung toilet will complete your look perfectly.
An increasingly common fixture in bathrooms across the UK, the wall hung toilet is so named because the toilet itself is fitted directly to the wall without any cistern on show. Another great plus point is that these toilets are designed with easy cleaning in mind, allowing you to clean in half the time. In addition to its striking good looks and modern appeal, the wall hung toilet is one of the more hygienic varieties thanks to its smaller form factor, and the fact that it has less surfaces to keep clean.
Before diving headfirst into purchasing one of these fittings, it’s wise to consider your options so that you choose the right wall hung toilet to suit your bathroom, your personal taste and your budget. We stock a wide range of products, including the frames and cisterns required to fit them, and we would be delighted to answer any questions you may have. We hope our guide also goes a long way to answering the more common questions, and giving you some inspiration for your own bathroom.
The superior space-saver
One of the most impressive aspects of a wall hung toilet is the amount of space it can save. Impressive in both innovation and architecture, these unassuming bathroom fittings can be placed closer to shower enclosures, other bathroom fittings and doors. There is, of course, the consideration of the space required to house the cistern, but with a little smart planning, and robust fittings, wall hung toilets are suitable for most bathrooms and cloakrooms. Another great space-saving benefit is that they give the illusion of more space thanks to their uncluttered appearance.
Compact vs standard
We offer a range of compact and standard wall hung toilets, and the style you choose will very much depend on your personal preference as well as the space you have available. For very small cloakrooms that are tight on space, you may wish to consider a compact toilet design. In doing so, you’ll have plenty of room for the finishing touches such as toilet paper holder, toilet brush and a bin without causing clutter or trying to cram everything in.
We also offer a range of standard size wall hung toilets. These are usually the same size as a conventional toilet pan, but do away with the base and cistern resulting in a clean, minimalistic and contemporary look. We’d be delighted to give you advice on the right option to choose for your particular bathroom or cloakroom, so please do call for more information.
You may be wondering how a cistern can fit into your wall, and also how you might access it if it ever develops a problem. In actual fact, the cistern itself is relatively small, and very easy to conceal. All of our wall hung toilets use a specially constructed frame designed to house the cistern components, and to support the toilet, and any subsequent weight placed on it. Designed to be mounted on to drywall or solid construction, our Geberit and Grohe frames are compact, narrow and very reliable. We've chosen only the best names in the cistern frames business, so that you get a product that will go on performing to its best for many years to come.
Accessing your toilet cistern is easy, and your installer should have experience of housing wall hung toilet cisterns. They will usually fit what is known as a rectangular flush plate, which is simple to remove, and which gives you access to all parts of your cistern.
Compact, stylish and so easy to clean
We wouldn’t say our toilets are a joy to clean, but they come close! Thanks to innovative design and ceramics technology, we bring you a range of toilets that will cut your cleaning time significantly. Take CeramicPlus by Villeroy & Boch, for example. Using a special process, they have taken toilet ceramics to a whole new level. Water droplets form in the surface of the CeramicPlus toilet, and flow straight into the outlet taking away contaminates such as dirt and limescale with them.
Safety first with all of our models
One of the most asked questions about our wall hung toilets is whether they are strong enough to support a person. The simple answer is yes, but the toilet does need to be fitted to a properly installed frame. Once installed correctly, the combined frame and toilet installation should support over 200kg comfortably (that’s 30 stone), and so we hope this gives you peace of mind. It’s important to check with your bathroom installer that they have experience in fitting this type of toilet. Fortunately, most experienced plumbers will be able to install your new toilet competently and safely.
Flushing options explained
Many of the wall hung toilets we offer have a dual flush, but you may be wondering what this means. For the environmentally friendly household, the dual flush can really make you feel like you are doing your bit for the planet, and could also save you money on your water bills over time. The first flush (the larger button) will generate a larger, more powerful flush, while a press of the second flush (the smaller button) will create a smaller flush. It really is that simple. We also offer wall hung toilets featuring a single flush if you prefer.
The perfect toilet for any size bathroom
We’ve spoken about how our wall hung toilets are a great solution for compact spaces, but they really are perfect for any bathroom size. Not only do they save space, but they are very aesthetically pleasing, and a break from the norm - ideal when you want to really create the wow factor. We know from experience that these modern toilets are a real talking point, and will certainly impress any guests you have to visit.
All in all, the wall hung toilet is taking the nation by storm, and is ideal for creating a stunning feature out of what is usually such a practical and standard bathroom fitting. We have taken a lot of care in selecting wall hung toilets from some of the best names in the industry, and we'd be delighted to speak to you if you're looking for something specific, or you have any questions about any item in our range.
