Why back to wall?
Although there are several different styles of toilet available – including close coupled and wall-hung – many users today, prefer a back to wall toilet. This type of toilet offers the dual advantage of being contemporary and space-efficient.
As the name implies, a back to wall unit is set firmly against the wall. The cistern, which is usually sold separately, is concealed in one of two ways. Many people choose to hide the cistern within the wall, where it is accessible through unit panels or in a flush panel that is fitted into the wall. The pipes, as well as the cistern, are concealed, leaving only the toilet bowl visible and creating a true sense of space in your bathroom. Unlike others, this type of toilet requires no support from a frame. It fits firmly and securely into the intersection between the wall and floor.
Alternatively, the cistern can be concealed within a furniture unit, and while this takes up a little more space, it can add decorative flair and style to your bathroom.
Style and colour make all the difference
You may think that apart from the general category – close coupled, wall-hung or back to wall – a toilet is a toilet. But that’s not the case. Toilets today are available in several different shapes, from flowing and curvaceous to linear – even square-shaped. They also come in a variety of colours, so you can choose a style and colour that are compatible with the rest of your bathroom. A straight-edged model probably wouldn’t look right if the rest of the room is designed around curves and flowing lines. A starkly contemporary toilet will look out of place in a restored Victorian-era bed-and-breakfast setting.
When it comes to the furniture concealing the cistern, there are even more choices. They come in a wide assortment of colours, finishes, and styles, with a look that ranges from cleanly contemporary to classic to traditional. Again, it is important to choose one that fits in with the overall décor of your bathroom. We make it easier for you by offering a broad choice of back to wall WC suites that include the toilet and the furniture unit. Browse our pages and you’re sure to find one that will look just right in your space.
Water efficiency matters too.
One factor you may want to consider is water efficiency. As water conservation becomes an issue not just in the UK but worldwide, and as household bills continue to rise, it is more important than ever to conserve where you can.Many toilets come with a dual flush system that gives you the choice of a 3-litre or 6-litre flush, for liquid or solid waste respectively. Consult with our experts for more information on the most water-efficient models.
Size also matters.
It is very important that you select the right size toilet unit or suite before placing your order. Again, our experts at QS Supplies can help you.
