What Is A Wall Hung Toilet?

Let’s start off by explaining what a wall hung toilet is. A wall hung toilet is a toilet bowl that has been mounted onto the wall to give the illusion of floating. When a toilet is wall-hung the cistern is concealed within the wall.

So rest assured, a wall hung toilet with cistern is a standard commodity when shopping wall hung toilets with Big Bathroom Shop. Even if a visual impression of cistern invisibility is presented.

Wall hung designs work particularly well in smaller spaces. In terms of floor space, the more shown, the larger the room appears.

Though it may be hard to believe, this design of toilet is extremely secure, due to it’s robust frame. Plus, wall hung toilet fixings are amongst the most rigid of any toilet type. So, no need to worry about the toilet failing off the wall mid-wee.

Why Buy Wall Hung Toilets?

Wall hung is the ideal choice for compact bathroom spaces, unlike a floor mounted toilets. Due to the cistern being hidden in the wall, a wall hung toilet and frame will take up much less space than a standard design.

They are also easier to clean than other toilets because of their elevated design. Therefore, you can mop, sweep and wipe down underneath the toilet without the struggle of getting into difficult nooks and crannies.

Here’s more details on the fabulous benefits of choosing a wall hung toilet…

Wall Hung Toilets Have Hidden Plumbing

Nobody likes messy, visible plumbing. You want your bathroom to look tidy and seamless.

People are often put off wall hung toilets because the cistern and plumbing are hidden in walls and they therefore believe installation will be complicated and access to the cistern is difficult after installation.

This couldn’t be more wrong. If you’re looking to purchase a wall hung toilet, you’ll be thrilled to learn that a wall mounted toilet needs to be installed with a flush plate.

This means, the plates simply lift off and provide all the access you will ever need to the concealed cistern in the wall. This also makes fitting a wall mounted toilet a relative breeze.

Another huge benefit of a wall hung toilet pan is that plumbing can be hidden away and leave you with a beautiful, uncluttered bathroom, en-suite or cloakroom!

Wall Hung Toilets Have A Beautiful Aesthetic

One of the most important parts of choosing a product for your bathroom is of course making sure it has a beautiful aesthetic that will enhance your space.

Floating just above the floor, this toilet design is perfect for homes that focus on minimalism, unlike other types of toilets.

They are available in several styles, so you have plenty of ranges to choose from, including square, round, and oval designs.

Wall Hung Toilets Are Great For Space Saving

If you’re looking to renovate bathroom, particularly a smaller bathroom, such as an en-suite or downstairs toilet, we would recommend a wall mounted toilet frame.

You can place them closer to other bathroom fixtures and avoid it looking cluttered because they come with no bulky external cistern.

They also create the illusion of more space because they hang just off the floor, an illusion exacerbated with short projection. As we mentioned previously, the more the eye can see of your bathroom floor, the bigger the space will seem.

For a streamline aesthetic you should opt for wall hung furniture. Zero contact with the floor eliminates the bulk that comes with a conventional toilet, freeing your room of space.

Hygiene – Easier To Clean Wall Hung Toilets

For all you Hinchers out there, you’ll love how hygienic and easier to clean a wall hung toilet is. Mop, wipe, vacuum and sweep without the hassle of moving between the difficult gaps you would get with a standard toilet.

Because the toilet pan is elevated from the floor you can clean around and underneath with ease. Say goodbye to getting on your hand and knees to reach the places where dust and dirt has built up overtime.

Another positive about a wall hung toilet is that unlike close coupled toilets, there is no sealant securing the toilet to the ground that could discolour over time.

What Height Should A Wall Hung Toilet Be?

The standard wall hung toilet height is 14.5 inches from the floor to the toilet bowl’s rim. This is not including the toilet seat.

However, the height of the wall frame can depend on the toilet manufacture and the frame.

This is only a suggested height; people can always measure the height of their current toilet if they feel it’s comfortable. Or you can opt for any height that is best for you and your family.
