Why You Should Consider a Wall Hung Toilet Now

Posted by Terrianne 23/09/2015 0 Comment(s)

Wall-mounted toilets are a popular choice for many homeowners, but some people are still on the fence about whether or not to install one.  While these toilets are a bit more expensive and may come with a few more challenges when it comes to repairs, the advantages of wall-hung toilets over floor-mounted ones far outweigh any negatives. 

 

Space Saver

Because wall-mounted toilets have water tanks that are installed inside the wall rather than outside of it, they save a significant amount of space in a bathroom. The only part visible and taking up valuable space is the toilet bowl and seat – the rest is tucked nicely away behind the drywall.  While some see this feature as a concern, it’s not – the tank is still easily accessible through the flush plate opening if it needs to be serviced.

 

Adjustable Height

Another bonus of opting for a wall-hung toilet is the ability to position it however you like.  The toilet height is totally adjustable, so if you’re tall and want a stool higher up on the wall, it’s no problem.  Vice versa for shorter folks who don’t feel like climbing onto their stool every time they have to go.

 

Aesthetics

Wall-hung toilets are considered by most to be must more aesthetically pleasing, too.  While floor-mounted toilets appear bulky and cumbersome, wall-hung stools are simple and sleek, with cleaner lines and a more visually appealing look overall.  They also open up the bathroom space and make it appear larger, due in part to the placement of the water tank, but also because they don’t touch the floor. 

 

Easy Cleaning

Their position off the floor also makes wall-mounted toilets and the surrounding area much easier to clean. With this type of stool, it’s as simple as wiping down the bowl and seat, and then wiping the floor underneath.  The careful, detailed cleaning that’s necessary when you’re scouring a floor-mounted toilet just isn’t needed when cleaning a wall-hung stool.
