Wall hung toilets are becoming increasingly popular in bathrooms worldwide. They have many benefits compared to conventional flush toilets. Originating in Europe, wall-hung toilets function the same way as their floor-mounted counterparts, except the tank is hidden behind the drywall inside the framing. Here’s how they’ll benefit you and your bathroom:
They’re easier to clean
This is possibly the biggest benefit of a wall-mounted toilet. The toilet pan is elevated from the floor, which allows you to clean around and underneath the toilet with ease. When compared to a traditional toilet, there are no tight spaces where dust and dirt can build up. This means that you will not need to bend down. Instead, you simply use a mop. Additionally, there is no sealant securing the toilet to the ground that could discolour over time or throw off the tile pattern.
They save space
With no bulky external cistern (toilet plumbing installed inside wall), the projection of your toilet is considerably reduced, which opens up your bathroom and gives you more space to play with. This is especially beneficial in smaller and tighter bathrooms.
Custom adjusted height
When installing a wall-mounted toilet, the plumber is easily able to customize the height for the homeowner. This is especially helpful for people with mobility issues who may require a higher toilet.
Minimal yet stylish look
From a design perspective, a wall-mounted toilet instantly brings a modern, sleek aesthetic to any bathroom. Wall hung toilets have a unique look and when they are teamed with a beautiful bathroom design they do not fail to impress.
They’re actually sturdy
A frequently asked question is if a wall hung toilet can hold a person’s weight. A properly installed frame and toilet combination should comfortably support 200kg. We don’t recommend purposely applying too much force to it but we have yet to come across a wall hung toilet that has broken off the wall. In commercial buildings and facilities, such as shopping centres, you will find that many of the public bathrooms have wall-mounted toilets installed. This is not just because they look good. A properly installed wall mounted toilet is built to be sturdy.
Can be installed in a variety of style
Despite the minimalist style of a wall hung toilet, you can still choose from a number of different styles. You can opt for gentle curves and softer, rounded edges with a design, or you can push the style envelope a little more and select something with sharper lines and a more square shape, for example.
