5 Reasons to Choose a Wall-Hung Toilet
Bathroom designers are increasingly looking to wall-hung toilets, and for good reason. There are many ways in which they can enhance your space, no matter the size or dimension of a room. If you’re looking to renovate your bathroom, then here are five reasons why you should choose to have a wall-hung toilet installed, aside from the fact they’re sleek and modern:
1. It optimises & maximises space in the bathroom
A wall-hung toilet, as the name would suggest, is attached to the wall. Typically, it has no attachment to the floor, as a conventional toilet would do. The cisterns are concealed, neatly, behind a wall and the installation frames are also hidden, resulting in a reduced outward projection. In turn, this creates a streamlined aesthetic of the room overall. Often, a faux wall will need to be built that comes off the original brick wall.
People usually take this as an opportunity to work in extra storage space. This might come in the form of a vanity unit, additional draws and cupboards or as a way to implement a floor-to-ceiling cabinet that can be used to house towels and other things. Considering the potential space that can be added and optimised accordingly, this is the perfect solution for any bathroom, regardless of shape or size.
2. It’s a more hygienic option
Unlike conventional close-couples or back-to-wall toilets, wall-hung alternatives are often considered to be far more hygienic, and for a number of reasons. The first is that a lot of the inner workings of the toilet itself are hidden and are concealed from sight and touch. This means that removing the top of the cistern won’t be as easy to do as with a traditional toilet – perfect if you have children with busy hands.
However, if you need to get to the inside of the cistern, there are quick and easy ways of accessing it in an emergency. This is often why you find wall-hung toilets in the hospitality industry, such as hotels, lobby toilets or in the workplace.
Wall-hung toilets are also far easier to clean and, as there are less parts and components exposed to the elements, there are less nooks and crannies for bacteria to get into and breed. It will also save time when you come to clean the bathroom itself, making it immaculate for immediate use.
3. It often means the toilet itself will be stronger & more durable
Wall-hung toilets are typically built to last, being able to withstand a weight of up to 400kg. This means that you’ll have complete peace of mind that a wall-hung toilet can be installed and used continuously for many years to come without having to worry about it cracking or experiencing any other kind of wear.

You also have the benefit of there being numerous models on the market, meaning there are many design choices available to suit your taste and the rest of your home decor.
A wall-hung toilet adds a seamless finish to any bathroom, as it also means that you’ll be able to hide waste pipes and other parts behind a wall. Not only is piping an eye sore, but it also makes it very different to clean, as already touched upon. If you’re looking to add style and sophistication to your bathroom, whilst also keeping it clean and in pristine condition for the long term, then a wall-hung toilet would be the most ideal option for you.
5. There are multiple styles available
As already discussed, there are a variety of different options to choose from when it comes to implementing a wall-hung toilet over more traditional alternatives. It might only seem like there is one design to choose from, as you might consider them to be all too similar, but that’s not actually the case. They come in a range of shapes and sizes, including round and square bowls. There are also solutions available which means you’ll be able to neatly have one in the corner of the room, if needed.
