Small space? No problem!
What is a short projection toilet?
If you see the term ‘short projection’, it means that the product has been designed to be compact and sit close to the wall. Basically, it won’t stick out as much as other toilets! This is great for bathrooms that may be limited on space of if you just prefer a more compact design. So, if you’re looking for a toilet for a small bathroom, short projection is definitely something to consider. If you’ve been doing your research, you may have also seen this feature being referred to as a back to wall toilet too.
What is a close coupled toilet?
A close coupled toilet is the term used to describe a toilet that has the cistern attached to the toilet bowl. This creates a single unit which combines both parts of the toilet. A close coupled toilet also tucks the pipes away within the case of the toilet which makes them very compact. It’s probably the most popular design in your standard household when choosing a toilet for a small bathroom.
What does wall hung mean?
They may seem pretty alien to begin with, but wall hung toilets and wall hung basins are harmless and very, very impressive. Wall hung toilets and wall hung basins are pretty much what they say in the name – they’re installed onto your wall and not to the floor. There are numerous benefits to wall hung products, especially if you’re looking to cater for a small bathroom basin or are looking for a toilet for a small bathroom. For example –
- 1. They take up less space - as simple as that! Wall hung toilets and wall hung basins are elevated several inches off the floor which provides the illusion of more space.
- 2. Wall hung basins and basins are also a great way to add more bathroom storage as the extra room underneath is perfect for items such as scales, baskets or foot stools!
- 3. An all-round benefit is that the wall hung feature means your cloakroom toilet and basin set is generally easier to clean! The elevation means you can easily clean underneath it and around it. This is great because conventional toilets have several places that are harder to get too – yet germs may find their way!
