A bathroom, washroom, or to be more precise, the loo is a cozy space. Mostly, every one of us has space for the loo that is probably no bigger than a good-sized tv packing box. I mean, it might be a bit more both in height and length. But be sure not more than that.
Most importantly, when you have everything from the toilet to shower to sink in one little space, you cannot expect better. Especially when you live in a rented apartment, you know what we are talking about here.
Those who have their apartment might also have the same small space as not everyone has massive bungalows in their possession. If you are among the lucky ones, then good for you. But as time passes, and we are heading towards the future, it is quite natural that people will have smaller spaces to their possession. Thus abodes, the rooms even the loo is going to get smaller.
So, to make that small space, elegant and distinct, home improvement has upped its game and how! The number of innovations that have happened in the case of furnishing a small space like a bathroom can surprise you.
Good for us, who want to make our cozy space of relaxing and releasing a bit more attractive. From sink to shower faucet, from toilets to bidets, then to bidet toilet seats and wall-hung toilets, the creativity and thoughtfulness are insane to even grapple with.
As we are here talking about the loo, we are, of course, going to talk about the best way to utilize the cozy space. For that, we are going to have a detailed discussion on the difference between wall hung vs standard toilet.
A standard toilet can be any. There are many types. However, by standard, we mean an English toilet. And if it’s an English toilet, there will be a bidet. The next option you have is to either directly purchase a bidet toilet or getting a bidet toilet seat to install on the standard toilet.
The last and more convenient option is to have a jet spray faucet, right beside the toilet. The type might be many, but the standard toilet will be installed on the floor.
However, a wall-hung toilet is not something that is installed on the floor. Just by the name, you might have already guessed that a wall-hung toilet is mounted on the wall. It is not going to touch the floor but will be mounted up at a distance so that the user can comfortably sit on it. Even in the case of wall-hung toilets, you can have bidet toilets or bidet toilet seats. And if you have the space for bidet, then the bidet will also be wall-hung to keep the harmony in how your loo looks.
So what are the crucial differences between the two types of toilets and which one is better? The former, we are going to discuss right below, and the latter we are going to leave on your preference. Let’s jump straight and discuss the differences.
We are talking about cozy, small loos. So, saving space naturally becomes essential when it comes to a small bathroom. You do not only have a toilet to install in there. Rather than skipping having a bathtub or large sink, one can easily try the wall-hung toilet, rather than installing a standard toilet. A standard toilet requires a bigger space compared to a wall-hung one.
However, installing a floor standing toilet is super easy- at least easier than a wall-hung one. You have to spend more too to fit it on the wall. Also, a wall-hung toilet is positioned on the wall and thus carries weight for years.
So there goes more behind the walls that it is mounted on than you think. And that is not the case in a standard toilet. It stands on the floor, the floor, that is, in any case, made to bear our weight.
A wall hung toilet is a very distinct item. There is a reason floor standing one are called standard toilets. And not all get attracted to the standard. Many prefer something unique yet classy and elegant.
How many of you are ready to spend a considerable amount to have something different? Because wall-hung toilets are unusual, but they are too pricey too. Sometimes, more than they deserve to be.
So, some of you might rather prefer a standard toilet that is hassle-free, affordable and doesn’t look that bad as even at an affordable price you can get classy, sleek standard toilets that can enhance the beauty of your cozy space.
When it comes to cleaning a loo, nothing can be more difficult. On the one hand, you can have the floor standing toilet, which is not very easy to clean, especially from beneath. You might try hard, but you cannot have a standard toilet that is 100% clean.
But a wall-hung toilet, if mounted at a proper height, a bit up from the floor, then you can clean it from all sides. Even reaching underneath it to clean is easy. So, wall-hung toilets are more accessible to clean than standard toilets.
A wall-hung toilet makes your bathroom look big. It is hanging from the wall, and it is not even touching the floor, so it almost creates an illusion that you have enough space in the bathroom. Though you cannot do much with space beneath the toilet yet, a wall-hung toilet is perfect for a small bathroom as it makes it look like there is enough empty space, which is not the case of standard toilets.
The whole flush system is very different in a wall-hung toilet. All that you installed behind the wall is well sketched and provides space for a good-sized hand to get access to it. However, a standard toilet is very different.
But rather than getting into the intricate details of unclogging a wall-hung and standard toilets, we are going to say a wall-hung one is easier to unclog. Not too easy, but a little bit, albeit. Because frankly, unclogging a toilet is never easy. The type doesn’t matter at all.
So, here we are with a well-explained discussion on differences between the two toilets. As we said earlier, our motive was to explain the differences. And now the choice is yours, which one you find apt for your bathroom, let us know.
