 Toilet Types

Choosing a toilet for your new bathroom will depend on the space you have available and the style of bathroom you are wanting.

There are two primary toilet designs on the market and one of these, will no doubt prove to be a great choice for your space.

Types of Toilet Suites

Concealed Toilet Suites

A concealed bathroom cistern can either be wall faced, which sits directly on the floor, or wall hung, leaving the bathroom floor space underneath it visible. These are a popular choice, as the design allows more space for other items in the room.

Wall Faced Toilets

Wall faced toilets provide a classic look, and are generally cheaper that wall hung toilets, they do not require extra wall support, making them cheaper to install than a wall hung toilet

Wall Hung Toilets

Wall-hung toilets generally make a bathroom appear larger, but they may need additional support to hold their and your weigh, this should be factored into the cost of installation to an existing bathroom as it may require reinforcement wall supports.

Non Concealed Toilet Suites

These are your classic toilets that have been around for hundreds of years, they are widely available and very easy to install. They tend to take up a bit more room due to the cistern being mounted on the wall, but do come in compact designs to minimise the intrusiveness of the external cistern.

Just because this type of toilet has been around for a long time does not mean they all conform to the same style, companies have recognised that not everyone has the time and money to install a concealed cistern, resulting in some modern designs being available in this type of toilet.
