All Hung Up!
If the idea of a wall hung toilet makes you nervous, read on….
Wall hung toilets are becoming much more popular and for a very good reason. They look fantastic and make cleaning the bathroom floor much easier, no floor pans to clean around and no pipework to see.
The pan is hung on a metal frame hidden within a stud wall or as part of a false feature built in front of a solid wall. Installed correctly, Geberit and Instinct frames are more than up to the job of supporting the toilet pan! The cistern is contained within the frame and all serviceable parts are accessible through the flushplate.
There are many ranges of sanitaryware that have wall hung pan options and these include products where the pan fixings are hidden for a really sleek look.
There are different height options and although it is common to see the flushplate wall mounted, you can also specify certain models with the flushplate top mounted above the frame – which can useful if your toilet is below a low window opening or worktop.
Clearly, the frame needs to be incorporated early in the planning stage but the difference it makes to the look of the bathroom is well worth the effort. If you have to build a ceiling height false feature to incorporate a frame why not consider using the void above the frame to build in alcove shelving?
