Wall Hung Toilets
Wall Hung toilets not only look smart, but they’re also a clever design device since they end up making every bathroom in which they’re placed, look far larger than it actually is.
That’s because the toilet seems to ‘float’ above the bathroom floor, allowing a space between the toilet and floor. This, in turn, means it’s possible for the eye to travel round without being interrupted (which is where the illusion of more space comes in). And, of course, there now is space underneath the toilet seat. The neatness of this look ensures that wall hung toilets are extremely popular in minimalist and contemporary spa-type bathrooms.
Easier to keep the bathroom floor clean
Another bonus of wall hung toilets is that the fact they aren’t sitting on the floor means the bathroom is much easier to clean – since the mop or sponge can simply wipe underneath the toilet seat in one clean movement.
Wall Hung toilets work by means of a concealed toilet frame which sits at the other side of the wall. This is where the cistern sits, as well as the pump for flushing the system. They will also be insulated to prevent any condensation building up and causing dampness problems.
An interesting feature of Wall Hung toilets is that you are more likely to find these in a modern and recently-built apartment building rather than a traditional 50 year old villa or traditional town house etc. That’s because new homes tend to have the frame for a Wall Hung toilet built in during construction in order to prevent any unnecessary mess at a later date. The majority of these toilets also tend to operate via an environmentally-friendly dual flush system. This is far easier when it comes to maintaining the toilet since it’s easy to remove the dual flush plate for easy access. It also saves on your water bills.
