Designing a new bathroom gives you the opportunity to update your fixtures and fittings and create a bespoke style. Whether you favour a classic feel or a contemporary aesthetic, a new bathroom will revitalise your home.
Of course, choosing the right fixtures is essential. As well as enhancing your design choices, the best fixtures and fittings will give the appearance of space and improve the functionality of your bathroom.
With a back to wall toilet, you can achieve just that. Exquisitely designed and utterly reliable, a back to wall toilet unit can be used in almost any type of bathroom. Whether you’re adding a downstairs bathroom to your home, redecorating your en suite or updating your family bathroom, a BTW toilet is a must-have feature.
A back to wall toilet is designed to sit directly against the wall of your bathroom or against a carefully selected unit. While a back to wall toilet pan protrudes from the wall, the cistern remains concealed behind the wall or toilet. This minimises the amount of space your toilet takes up and ensures pipework is easily concealed.
With this type of back to wall WC, the concealed cistern and pipework means easy cleaning and enhanced design. However, there are times when you’ll need to access the cistern or pipes. Fortunately, the innovative design of a back to wall toilet make this easy to do. If your BTW toilet is affixed to the wall, a flush panel ensures quick access to the cistern. Alternative, a panel built-in to your furniture unit will enable you to access the cistern or pipes, as and when you need to.
In most cases, a back to wall WC consists of a separate toilet pan and cistern. However, you can choose an interconnected back to wall toilet and cistern, if you prefer. If so, the cistern of the BTW WC will also be visible in your bathroom. However, the design of a close coupled back to wall toilet ensures both the cistern and toilet pan are housed in one unit.
As back to wall toilets are affixed to the floor, as well as the wall or a unit, there’s no need to add a separate frame for stability. This means they’re relatively easy to install and reassuring strong and stable.
What’s more, a rimless back to wall toilet is ideal for smaller spaces. A short project back to wall toilet will minimise the amount of space taken up by incorporating a shorter back to wall pan. Whether you’re adding a back to wall rimless toilet in a family bathroom or en suite, the space-saving specifications of a short projection toilet mean you’ll create space while maximising the aesthetic.
Until you begin planning your new bathroom in detail, you might not give much thought to toilet design. It is easy to see, however, just what an impact the right toilet unit can have. To find out more, explore our range of back to wall toilets now.
