In any bathroom, big or small, a toilet is an absolute essential. If you are buying a new toilet, there are a lot of things to consider before deciding which one, and this can be quite a daunting prospect. This quick guide should give you all the vital information, from what kinds of toilet there are, to how much you could spend. Hopefully, this will help you find the perfect choice for your bathroom suite.
When choosing a new toilet for your bathroom suite, you have the option of three different styles. The differences largely involve how the toilet is fitted within the room and how much space it takes up. Here at bathstore, all three are typically made from a similar material – vitreous china – and you can be sure of their high quality and durability, irrespective of style. They are also all available in a range of aesthetic styles from modern and angular to elegant and curved. This short guide should take you through all the key features of each style, helping you choose which one is best for your bathroom.
If your bathroom is small, has a distinctive shape or you simply want to make room for a larger feature item, fitting a toilet into the corner may be a perfect way to maximise the space available. Though they require a slightly different kind of installation to other toilets, they are still relatively easy to have fitted.
In the UK, we are becoming more and more concerned with reducing the impact we have on the environment, including how much water we waste on a daily basis. Toilets make up around 30% of the water use in a house, resulting in an estimated two billion litres of water usage in the UK every day, according to waterwise (insert link to http://www.waterwise.org.uk/pages/indoors.html), but if we invested in water-saving toilets, this could be reduced. A water-saving toilet can also save you a considerable amount of money. For these reasons, and more, a water-saving toilet could be the perfect addition to your bathroom suite.
For a really nifty way of saving space in your bathroom suite, you can opt for a toilet and sink unit. This has both toilet and sink fitted into the unit, concealing all pipework and making the fixtures look neat and tidy. They’re not just for smaller bathrooms; they can look great in larger suites too, making extra room for other bathroom features such as freestanding baths.
After 300 years in mainland Europe, the bidet has made its way over to the U.K., with more and more bathrooms featuring this handy, hygienic little device. Used for intimate washing, the bidet can help you stay clean and fresh, as well as injecting a bit of continental style into your bathroom suite.
When buying a toilet for your bathroom suite, you will need more than just the toilet itself. Many toilets require you to purchase the seat separately and, if you are looking to mount it onto the wall, you will need a wall frame to keep it totally secure. Also, your toilet must be paired with a cistern and if not included in the purchase, you will need to make sure you get the right one.
If you’re looking for a toilet to go in your ensuite, cloakroom or small bathroom, there are loads of options available that will do the job with ease and style. When you compromise on space, this doesn’t mean you also have to compromise on quality. It is very easy to find a durable and reliable toilet that will make the most of a limited space.
A toilet is an absolutely essential item in your bathroom suite, and since they can last a very long time, it is often worth investing in a quality product. However, this doesn’t mean that it has to cost a fortune; indeed, there are plenty of items available from bathstore that have a reduced cost but not at the expense of reliability.
It’s a fact - cleaning the toilet is the job that no-one wants. However, it is so important to clean your toilet regularly, as this will prevent a build-up of stains and stop bacteria from growing. It will also keep not only your toilet but your whole bathroom looking and feeling a lot fresher, and if you get into a routine of cleaning it once a week, it won’t seem like so much of a chore!
