When you think of a wall hung toilet, you probably imagine something used solely in hotels, restaurants or even bars. However, with more design choices than ever, the traditional close coupled toilet now doesn't have to be the only option when it comes to your own bathroom.
Designs such as the back to wall toilet are becoming more popular, so maybe it's worth considering taking a fresh look at your options? These days adding a wall hung toilet to your bathroom is not as difficult as you think, with a whole kit costing as little as £300!
We take a look at just 5 reasons why a wall hung toilet could be a great investment:
1. Easier to clean
A major bonus, especially if you are one of those people (like me) who absolutely hate cleaning the bathroom. With no floor attachment, floors can be mopped or vacuumed without those awkward little nooks and crannies you often get with a traditional style toilet.
2. Space saver
With no external cistern, the projection of your toilet is significantly reduced, opening up your bathroom and giving you more space to play with. This is especially handy in smaller bathrooms.
3. Hidden plumbing
Not to sound negative, but the fact the cistern and all the plumbing is hidden behind a wall is one of the reasons why people often shy away from a wall hung toilet

When designing any part of your home there are a wealth of furniture, materials, accessories and intrinsic designs to think of. The more choices there are, the harder the process has become!
In the past, planning your bathroom would have been considered one of the easier tasks when it came to the interior design process. However, as the range of products on offer have become more luxurious and accessible, the selection process has now become tougher than an X Factor judging panel!
From the big decisions, like choosing between a freestanding bath, shower or shower bath, right down to the little touches, such as your choice of shower mat, these decisions are both complicated and varied. When you invest in a bathroom, you want to ensure the items you choose are perfect for you.
Loos that certainly aren't Bog Standard
Even the humble toilet has proved to offer a lot more quality and variety for your money these days. Its design has come a long way since the early days and the traditional close-coupled design is no longer the only option.
Modern designs such as back to wall toilets are proving to be the most popular. Yet if you're only just entering the modernised bathroom world it can be difficult to pick which is the best for you.
Close Coupled v Back to Wall Toilet
For the uninitiated, a back to wall toilet differs from a close coupled toilet in the following ways:
With a back to wall toilet, the toilet pan (the bit you sit on) is separate to any other part of the toilet. The cistern is normally supplied separately

There are now more accessories than ever to keep the modern bathroom fully functioning and limit any negatives in getting yourself clean this winter.
Gone are the days where the bathroom was a place of necessity and hindrance, only used for the sole purpose of personal hygiene – small, cramped rooms that resembled something practical and functional, and needed to take up as little space in the house as possible.
A Place for Pampering
Today, the bathroom is seen as a place for pampering, relaxation and an escape from the stresses many people face in daily life. Larger rooms are sacrificed to create the ultimate bathroom space as more and more hours are spent in this new, tranquil arena.
Since the focus on a luxury bathroom has become more prevalent we have seen an increase in original and creative accessories to complement such a stylish room.
In the Deep Midwinter
During the winter the bathroom would once have been considered a cold and unwelcoming place but thanks to these improvements opinions have waivered.
One of the biggest, must-have, accessories for the winter is the heated towel rail. Since the turn of the century demand for towel rails has seen an almost exponential growth, and it is easy to see why.
The repeated scenario of having to leave the shower and dry in the cold, with a coarse towel is a daily grind for the majority of the British public. With a heated towel rail it keeps the towel soft and warm to provide instant satisfaction for the, suddenly cold, user
