Just when we thought that flush toilets can’t be improved anymore, the wall-hung toilet design showed up and opened a whole new world of possibilities. Wall-mounted toilets are pretty popular at the moment and you may have seen them in restaurants, bars and public bathrooms but they’re also becoming more and more popular in private homes as people are starting to switch to them after realizing just how advantageous they can be, especially in a contemporary environment. But what’s so great about wall-hung toilets anyway? We’ve compressed everything into 5 big reasons why you should switch to this model the next time you remodel your bathroom:
1. Wall-hung toilets save space
Wall-mounted toilets are not smaller than the standard kind but they are more space-efficient and that’s all due to their design and the way in which they’re installed. The first thing you notice is the fact that there’s no water tank. Well, it exists but it’s hidden inside the wall and. Also, the toilet bowl is flush with the wall and this helps to save a bit of extra space as well.
2. They can be installed at custom heights
The fact that you can install a wall-mounted toilet at precisely the right height for you is a major advantage which standard floor-mount toilets don’t offer. It’s curious how it took us this long to come up with a solution for the ergonomic issue. Just like there are now height-adjustable desks, tables and kitchen counters, these toilets make our life easier and more comfortable by simply not limiting us to a standard height.
3. Cleaning is a breeze
Because wall-hung toilets are not touching the floor at all, that leaves the area beneath them completely open and makes cleaning a lot easier and quicker than standard toilets do. You can vacuum or mop the floor with ease plus there’s no visible tank anymore so that’s one less feature that needs regular cleaning.
4. The tank is hidden
The fact that the water tank is concealed inside the wall comes with several advantages and we’ve already mentioned a few. Cleaning is easier, there’s more space in general and the whole bathroom looks a lot cleaner, more airy and more stylish this way. The aesthetic part alone is enough to make a lot of people fall in love with this style. On top of that, there’s another big advantage to having a hidden water tank: there’s a lot less noise when it’s refilling. In case you’re worried about not having access to the tank for repairs, these toilets actually have a small access panel (the one containing the buttons) plus they very rarely require such interventions.
5. They have the wow-factor
Now let’s about the obvious thing: the way these toilets look. We absolutely love how simple and clean this system is. All the plumbing is hidden inside the wall, there’s no visible tank and the bowl seems to float above the floor which definitely gives it the wow-factor. Wall-hung toilets are super sleek, stylish and modern and if the fact that they’re new and uncommon isn’t enough, consider all the practical advantages too.
