Toilet styles to suit any renovation budget
Behind The Wall (Concealed) Toilets
For a minimalist, compact look a behind the wall suite (also known as in-wall or concealed) are popular. The great thing about these toilets are they feature a hidden cistern, either in the wall, in a roof cavity or under a counter, meaning less space is taken up in your bathroom. You can also choose from a range of quality buttons to suit your style and if you are worried about the future serviceability, don’t be, they have been engineered to access everything a plumber needs from the button panel.
Wall Faced Toilets
These are quite distinct because the rear of the pan is flush against the wall, which creates a seal that is much easier to keep clean as nothing can get stuck behind the suite. They also feature universal trap fittings, to suit either S Trap or P Trap plumbing pipes. By far the most common and the most popular toilets sold in Australia today
Close Coupled Toilets
This describes a suite where the cistern bolts directly to the pan, creating a nice seal and appearance. These are usually completely made of vitreous china, so they will last longer than some plastic cistern connector alternatives. These include both wall face and non wall faced designs.
Connector or Linked Toilet Suites
These connector suites are perfect for odd plumbing configurations that can often be found in older homes, or if you are looking for a cheap replacement. There is a visible pipe going between the cistern and the pan, which is often covered by a connector piece to give it a “close coupled” look. Although its popularity has somewhat diminished, you can still get a plastic cistern with a vitreous china pan to really save some money on your bathroom renovation.
