Q. What is a wall hung toilet?
A. A wall hung toilet is a toilet pan which will be fixed to the wall with fixing bolts and/or a frame, concealed in your wall, and does not sit touching the floor but above it.
Q. What things should I consider before purchasing a wall hung toilet?
A. You will need to be able to secure your pan to the wall using either fixing bolts, or a frame, so you will need to discuss with your installer if your wall or bathroom is going to be suitable. You will also need a concealed cistern for your toilet, whether this is framed or not. As with all toilet pans you will need to consider the width and projection to ensure that you have space to fit it. You will also need to consider the design of other items in your bathroom, and your budget.
Q. Why should I choose a wall hung toilet?
A. Wall hung toilets are extremely modern, and very popular in the rest of Europe, although they are less popular in the UK. They can help to create more space in your bathroom, as the cistern would be concealed as with a back to wall toilet so the projection will be less than with a close coupled pan. There are lots of designs and manufacturers to choose from, at different price points, if you think that a wall hung pan is the one for your bathroom. Wall hung toilets look amazing in contemporary, minimalist style bathrooms, but wouldn't suit a traditional or classic style of bathroom.
Q. Will I need anything else to go with my wall hung toilet pan?
A. Not all toilet pans will come with the seat, so this is something to look out for. You will also need a concealed cistern and fixing frame. You will also probably need to purchase a push button or flush plate for the concealed cistern.
Q. Can I buy matching items for my wall hung toilet pan?
A. Some manufacturers do produce ranges, so a basin and bidet may also be available in the same range, and you may even be able to purchase a bath within the same range, but this will not be the case for all wall hung pans, so if this is something that is important we would recommend researching the pan and if there is a whole range, before you purchase or decide on a toilet pan.
Q. Are wall hung toilet pans suitable for cloakroom bathrooms?
A. This will be dependent upon the size of your cloakroom bathroom. Wall hung pans tend to have a shorter projection than close coupled pans so may be a better option, providing that you have enough space to install the wall hung toilet and other items in the bathroom. Always speak to your installer for advice before purchasing.
