Roper Rhodes toilets are smart, efficient, comfortable and delivered with affordable prices. Created from high quality ceramics, they are a sound investment. Guaranteed to stay relevant for years to come, they are built with an efficient approach to water consumption for lower long term running costs. Designed with simple footprints and discrete floor fixtures, these WC pans bring a fresh, Scandinavian aspect to the interior when installed. Back to wall and wall hung models require concealed cisterns and frames, which may be ordered separately.
Collected here is a broad selection of toilet seats. Wooden options are available in the form of the Roper Rhodes Traditional and Greenwich toilet seats, giving the WC a pleasing finish with their warm wooden tones. Models with soft close hinges give the WC space a touch of quiet tranquillity, with units such as Juno, Neutron and Elite offering inexpensive alternatives to the standard toilet seat.
While many people might look upon the simple toilet as an item of pure functionality in a bathroom, modern toilets span a wide variety of designs and styles which can be used to fit seamlessly in with any kind of decor and even stand out as a feature in their own right. A variety of different types and fittings can be found from Roper Rhodes, who use high quality ceramics to produce toilet units of excellent reliability, quality, and value for money. The toilets also rank highly for water efficiency, and come in classic, timeless high quality white porcelain as well as some stylish wooden designs for seats.
Before you buy, however, you will need to take a number of factors into consideration - will you require a close coupled suite? How much space do you have available for your toilet? Is it possible to have a wall concealed cistern? And of course - which toilet will best fit in with the decor across the rest of your bathroom? Are you looking for a sleek, modern, minimalist design, or are you in the market for a more traditional kind of toilet to suit the rest of your furniture?
If you need help in answering any of these questions, you're in the right place. This guide will tell you everything you need to consider and take into account when you're buying a toilet for your bathroom, and give you a rundown of all the Roper Rhodes products available to help give you your dream design.
Back to wall toilets
Back to wall toilets incorporate a simple, versatile and classic design which offer flexibility and excellent value for money. As the name implies, they are designed to be positioned with the rear of the toilet against a wall, and are separate from the cistern, for which there are two choices. Either a cistern can be mounted higher up and attached, or, if space is available in a recess, they can be combined with a wall-concealed cistern which will complement the most minimalist of bathrooms, as well as saving a large amount of space. Fully back to wall toilets also have no open space at the back to collect dust, making them easier to clean.
Roper Rhodes have a wide variety of back to wall toilets available - the simple Roper Rhodes Geo Back to Wall Toilet is a simple and cost effective solution yet also one that offers an elegant design - the more squared shape of the bowl lends it a contemporary look, while the floor fixings are concealed to make it fit in with the clean, efficient modern bathroom. Its design also helps make it less likely to pick up dust and easier to clean, meaning it is a perennially popular choice.
If space is at a premium, such as in smaller bathrooms or in en-suite installations, the Roper Rhodes Zest Back to Wall Toilet can provide a perfect solution. A smaller bowl, with the option of an even more compact version, helps it to fit into the smallest spaces and can help to save room in smaller layouts, or help to give a bigger bathroom with more floor space. Again, the toilet is made from high quality ceramics with fired white clay, and is easy to clean and designed to avoid dust traps.
The Roper Rhodes Minerva Back to Wall Toilet is another option with a more classic, continental design, retaining the features of the above and including a soft-close seat. A handy middle ground is also offered in the form of the Roper Rhodes Version Back to wall Toilet, which features a stylish and contemporary update to the traditional bowl, as well as all the advantages of Roper Rhodes back to wall toilets.
Close coupled toilets
Increasingly popular, close coupled toilets feature an included cistern paired much closer to the toilet bowl, providing one compact unit to save space and simplify plumbing. The Geois the prime example of the possibilities of this kind of design - an ultra modern look helps it to fit in with the most sleek and contemporary styles of decor popular in modern bathrooms, with its smooth, squared shape. With the entire back also being against the wall, the Geo is also simple to clean, and its chrome-plated, top-fixing slow close hinges round it off as one of the best options available, giving it a smooth action and cutting down on noise.
For a more classic design, the Roper Rhodes Minervabowl is also available as a close coupled unit, featuring the high quality ceramics and flat back to wall features of the Geo, combined with the standard Minerva soft close seat. The option also comes with a seat with an easy release mechanism for removal for easy and simple cleaning. Both are as solid, durable and comfortable as all Roper Rhodes seats, too, so you won't need to compromise on quality.
A handy middle ground between the two designs comes in the form of the Roper Rhodes Note Close Coupled Toilet Suite, which has a design somewhere between the squared, contemporary look of the Geo and the rounded, classic look of the Minerva. This close coupled suite also features a thinner cistern, to reduce the amount of space the toilet suite takes up while still providing a large enough and comfortable seat. In addition, the toilet comes with two flush buttons for short and long flushes, which reduce noise and help to save water. As an alternative for a space-saving toilet, particularly in en-suite bathrooms, there are few suites that can compare to the Note.
Wall hung toilets
Wall Hung toilets offer an eye-catching piece which can lend elegance and class to your bathroom. As the name implies, the toilets are mounted on the wall and have an open space between the bowl and the floor, as they appear to hover above the ground. The effect isn't only for aesthetic purposes, however - the bowl is also extremely compact and helps to save a huge amount of space, particularly if paired with a wall-concealed cistern. Overall, the wall hung option provides a visually striking toilet suite which offers something different to complement any decor, particularly in modern, minimalist designs. The space saving bonus also makes it ideal for smaller bathrooms, particularly en-suite washrooms, and helps create the sense of a larger room, making it a winner on two levels.
Roper Rhodes offer a variety of luxurious, high quality toilet seats to offer the maximum in comfort, durability, and the latest in soft-close action. Soft close toilet seats will close gently by themselves to avoid noise or damage to the toilet bowl when being put down, and come as standard for Roper Rhodes toilet suites. In addition, cleaning is a breeze using the quick-release button.
Roper Rhodes toilet seats are designed to match the bowls made by the company, and to fit smoothly as well as complement the design choices. If you require a more traditional look, the Roper Rhodes Greenwich Toilet Seat and the Roper Rhodes Traditional Soft Close Toilet Seat both have an authentic, natural wooden look to perfectly suit your decor. Both of these seats also come with soft close, corrosion resistant hinges and have a soft close action. Both are also available in six different wood finishes: Solid limed oak, Antique pine, Mahogany, Solid natural oak, Solid walnut and Honey Oak. This allows you to perfectly match the design of the seat to your interior, working perfectly with more traditional bathrooms without sacrificing any of the ease, elegance of design or luxury of modern furnishings.
Another thing to bear in mind is the flush mechanism for toilets - many toilets now come with two flush buttons as standard, one for a long flush and one for a short one. This helps save water and money by allowing you to decide which to use when required, and while now standard in many oontinental countries, are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. While many of Roper Rhodes toilet suites come with this function as standard, some do not, so if you want another way to save water, be sure to check the product pages for the exact specifications.
As you can see, there are plenty of choices available when you decide to buy a toilet, with Roper Rhodes producing a wide range of products for any budget, design and space. Remember to take into consideration whether you want a close coupled suite or a separate cistern if you wish to install it above or as a wall-concealed unit. In addition, bear in mind the amount of space you have, not just in the area where you'll be fitting your toilet but in your bathroom as a whole - a smaller toilet bowl, even if not necessary, can create the effect of a larger bathroom and give you more floor space. With Roper Rhodes' elegant designs, space saving techniques, and additional extra touches such as soft close seats and dual-function flushes, you can be sure that whatever design you opt for, you'll be getting some of the best toilets around on the market that will really help your bathroom to stand out.
