Also known as wall-mounted toilets, these units have a hidden cistern which is concealed behind a wall. A special panel allows easy access for repairs and maintenance, and the pan is suspended from a strong frame that it built right into the wall. Some people worry that a wall mounted toilet might fall off the wall in the middle of use, but they’ve been designed to handle loads of 200kg or more. While a wall-hung toilet may look like it’s magically floating, there’s a good amount of engineering that goes into creating a sturdy, reliable seat. Because the cistern is in the wall and not standing out in front of it, the projection and overall footprint of a wall hung toilet is much smaller than a traditional or close-coupled unit. If you’re outfitting a petite cloakroom or a tiny en-suite, those extra inches can make a huge difference in how comfortable, attractive, and usable the bathroom will be.
