When it comes to your bathroom, there is no single fixture more important than the toilet. And choosing a new toilet can be confusing, with the variety of styles and types that are on offer. Here at RWM Plumbing and Gas, we are Preston’s leading plumbing, gas and bathroom experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to the different toilet options for your bathroom.
What are the different toilet options for your bathroom?
Just because the toilet is the most used fixture in the bathroom, doesn’t mean it cant be stylish too. And a toilet should always fit with your design choices for the rest of the room. There are three main types of toilet to choose from, and these include:
- close coupled toilets
- back to wall toilets
- wall hung toilets
Close coupled toilets
This type of toilet is the most popular choice of toilet across the UK. It has a separate pan and cistern that are positioned close together (close couple…). And the cistern sits on top of the pan against the wall. The handle, button, or lever is usually installed on the cistern for ease of access. There is also a version of this close coupled toilet that is known as the closed back closed couple toilet. And this just means that the pan stretches all the way back to the wall to hide any pipework and prevent dust and dirt building up behind the toilet.
Back to wall toilets
With a hidden cistern, usually behind a wall panel, the back to wall toilet is more contemporary in design. It has minimalist style and can look stunning in a contemporary bathroom. And if you’re worried about space in a smaller bathroom, well it definitely takes up less space than a close coupled toilet.
Wall hung toilets
These look similar to a back to wall toilet, although they are quite different. The toilet hangs on a sturdy metal frame, so that the toilet is suspended above the floor. By being mounted to the wall, instead of the floor, this toilet is very contemporary and looks stunning.
