What Style of Toilets are Available

Modern toilets

If you’re looking for a modern toilet then this is what is classed as ‘close coupled’. In other words, the cistern and the toilet are combined with no space in between. It’s in contrast with older models where the cistern would be attached above the toilet onto the wall. Modern toilets come in all shapes and sizes from geometric and square to curved and semi-circular. Most of our toilet also have the option of a soft close or standard toilet seat.

Most toilet seats are white but if you’re feeling on the daring side and believe your bathroom décor can cope, the RAK Opulence range has a stunning geometric toilet in high-gloss black.

Traditional toilets

Those who live in older period properties such as Victorian or Georgian flats, or owners of country cottages who are keen on a shabby chic look often opt for a traditional toilet with either a high or low level cistern, or even a close coupled version with a vintage appearance.

The Tavistock Salisbury for instance with its ceramic lever system and decorative edge fits this criteria perfectly. So too does the Premier Legend model with soft close seat (it may be a traditional design but there’s nothing to say you can’t enjoy modern features!). And on this score, some traditional toilets do come with the eco-friendly dual flush system now more or less fitted as standard in all modern toilets.

What other Toilet Types are Available?

Corner toilets

A great way to make the most of space in a small bathroom such as an en-suite or cloakroom, the clever corner toilet fits neatly into any right angle and the RAK Evolution range even comes with a luxury fitting polyester toilet seat. It’s also possible to buy corner wash units to match.

Back to wall toilets

Perfect for a minimalist-look bathroom, a back to wall toilet means all the pipe work is hidden which gives the room an uncluttered and tidier look. A hidden cistern is essential with this type of installation.

Wall hung toilets

Space-saving wall hung toilets are extremely popular these days, particularly for minimalist bathrooms. They’ll make a bathroom appear larger than it actually is by freeing up floor space and make cleaning and wiping your bathroom floor easier than it’s ever been.

Choose from square, circular, soft close, retro wall hung toilets and short projection toilets.

Small Toilets

If you are looking to save the smallest of margins in your bathroom then a small toilet might be the answer! These are not the tiny toilets that you would find in a school bathroom they are full size toilets. The dimensions of these are full size where it is important but smaller in areas such as the cistern. The range we have certainly don’t lack in style or choice despite their smaller sizing.

High Toilets

The height of a toilet can be a problem if you struggle with lowering yourself down and that is why these high toilets are a good solution. They are the same size and shape as regular toilets but the pan is extended to make the seat higher and more comfortable for you.

Change your Toilet seats

If you can’t afford to splash out on an expensive toilet but are looking for something a little different to the norm then a classy, colourful or novelty toilet seat will certainly do the job. Choose from light granite toilet seat, coloured glitter seats, wooden seats to name but a few.

Buyer’s Guide: Toilets

Nowadays, there is such a varied selection of toilets to choose from that choosing what kind of toilet to install in your bathroom can be more complicated than anticipated. From wall hung toilets to corner toilets, with a range of modern and traditional flushes the decision can take longer than expected. As always, right from the planning and design stage you need to think about what you want to achieve from the bathroom as a whole, and compare how the toilet would look compared the rest of the suite and décor.

What Style Toilet will best suit your Home?

Traditional Toilets

If the rest of your home has a vintage theme, or you live in a rural cottage and long for classic designs, then a traditional toilet is probably the best choice to keep the essence of the home. Although modern toilets are growing in popularity, an old fashioned cistern lever system adds a touch of class to any home, especially if you have gone for a Victorian or Georgian interior design style.

One of the most common reasons people don’t opt for traditional lever toilets anymore is because they believe they will not be as efficient or fitted with eco-friendly features. This is no longer the case; most toilets installed nowadays have the environmentally friendly dual flush system, regardless of style, which will save water and money.

Modern Toilets

For the more contemporary home, a modern toilet and bathroom suite is a must. Close coupled toilets are the usual choice, meaning the cistern and toilet are combined into one unit, providing a minimalist design. The majority of modern toilets are designed like this, as they are easier to maintain and install. Modern toilets come in all different shapes and sizes to suit all tastes, and many toilets include added innovative features such as soft close toilet seats.

What other things should I Consider when choosing a Toilet?

Toilet Shape

The shape of the toilet may seem irrelevant, but to achieve a harmonized bathroom you need to ensure the shape matches the rest of the suite. For example, a square shaped toilet will look strange in a bathroom with a circular basin and rounded features. For the height of minimalism, home owners should opt for a back to wall toilet or a wall hung design. The hidden pipe work gives the room a slick and stylish effect, and wall hung toilets free up floor space to make the room appear larger and more spacious.

Space Saving Solutions

To create more space in particularly small bathrooms, such as en-suites or downstairs toilet rooms, a corner toilet could be the ideal option. The pioneering design fits perfectly on a right angle, meaning with a fitted corner toilet you could free up much needed space elsewhere in the room. A corner toilet can also be complemented with a corner basin to finish off the room.

Looking for something a little Different?

For the unconventional home owners who crave something a little different, the vast array of modern toilets available should encompass something for the even the most unique taste. While almost all bathrooms showcase a white toilet and bathroom suite, it is possible to purchase a black toilet in a sleek high gloss finish. There is also some very interesting sharp angles and shapes in contemporary toilet designs that can be incorporated into the distinguishable bathroom.

Hopefully this guide will have begun to point you in the right direction. Here at Bella Bathrooms we are confident that we will have something to suit every taste or need.
