Wall-hung VS Floor-mounted Toilet

February 21, 2023

Every family needs a toilet. It is not the most gorgeous thing, but without it, no bathroom can be complete. Many people neglect the toilet when designing or decorating the bathroom, but in the present, toilets have a variety of styles and shapes. Therefore, it is worth taking time to consider which works best in your bathroom. The first question to ask is whether you want a wall-hung toilet or a floor-mounted toilet. George Bathroom will help you decide and look at the pros and cons of each toilet type.

Wall-hung Toilets --- Advantages

★ Appearance

One of the major benefits of wall-hung toilets are the aesthetics. For bathrooms that need a sleeker or more modern look, wall-hung toilets tend to blend in with the other bathroom fixtures to provide a sleek style.

These toilets never go out of style and provide a classy and minimal design that outlasts all style trends. If you want the appearance of a contemporary designer, a wall-hung toilet is a good choice. However, many one-piece floor-mounted toilets are also elegant in design.

★ Space saving

These toilets are also ideal for smaller bathrooms, as the wall-hung allows for much smaller (still functional toilets). These toilets are ideal for small home bathrooms, or bathrooms in tiny homes or mobile homes.

When designing a bathroom, it is recommended to have around 24 inches of clear space in front of the toilet, and around 30 inches of free space between the toilet and other fixtures (in order to be up to most codes).

For users who are elderly or disabled, the wall-hung toilet is ideal. As it does not rely on floor height, it can be mounted higher or lower to provide easier access. Additionally, due to the toilets having different internal parts, they can be a much quieter option.

These toilets are much easier to clean as the bacteria that usually gathers on the floor around the base is no longer present.

Wall-hung Toilets --- Disadvantages

There are cons to the toilets, however. Without the floor base, wall-hung toilets have a more complex flushing and drainage method, meaning installation is much more complicated and extensive. Rather than just bolting onto the floor, the wall-hung toilet has its tank inside the wall, meaning that space must be cut into the wall and the interior must be framed and structured in order to support the somewhat freestanding toilet.

Floor-mounted Toilets--- Advantages

★ Installation

Floor-mounted toilets are some of the most common toilets on the markets, as they are easy to install and readily available. Floor-mounted toilets are extremely easy to install. When most homes are built, they offer plumbing and drainage lines that run from underneath the flooring in the home and out through the ground into the bathroom.

When installing a floor-mounted toilet, you will align the toilet interior pipes and holes with the external plumbing lines, and then bolt and/or glue the toilet down to the floor.

★ Cost

Since these toilets are extremely common, the parts for them are readily available, making repairs accessible and inexpensive. Overall, the costs for the toilet are much cheaper. Readily available parts mean that this toilet, with installation, usually costs a max of 500 dollars, unlike the average 1500 of a wall-hung.

Floor-mounted Toilets--- Disadvantages

However, this toilet also presents cons. These toilets are not as sleek as the wall-hung, meaning that they take up much more space. For smaller bathrooms, these toilets may take up more than the recommended 24 inches of free space around the toilet making them fail code inspections.

These toilets are less accessible for the elderly or handicapped, as they rely on the floor level to determine their height. Since they cannot be raised or lowered, most people choose to install metal bars on the walls surrounding the toilet to allow for easier grip and access. These toilets also harbor a large amount of bacteria and mold.

Since the toilets sit directly on the floor, it is extremely common for particles of waste and water to sit on the floor around the base, causing a build-up of bacteria and other toxins. These germs also find their way into the wax rings and bolts, making it harder to clean.

When cleaning the toilet, it is recommended to clean the toilet first, then clean the floor and base with a strong antiseptic, as well as removing the bolt caps on the floor and scrubbing those.

How Should We Make a Decision?

Whether the toilet in the bathroom is suitable is always a matter of personal taste. Choose a model that you like and is suitable for the overall bathroom design. For the modern minimalist decoration theme, the wall-hung toilet may be a more appropriate choice, while the floor-mounted toilet is more suitable for any classic design.

You also need to consider the budget for the bathroom. Toilets vary from unit to unit, but wall mounted toilets are often more expensive, requiring more pipe work, which will also increase costs. However, they do have a very important designer look.

In the long run, wall-hung toilets may be a better investment, because if you decide to sell your house, it may be an attractive feature. Ultimately, the decision is yours.
