Trending: Wall-Hung Items in the Bathroom
Last Updated Apr 27, 2012 · Written by Jaclyn Fitzgerald
The bathroom is often one of the smallest rooms in the home and yet it is one of the most important, so it’s a good idea to maximise space wherever you can. This doesn’t mean leaving anything out or making your bathroom feel cluttered though! The simple solution is to go wall hung – giving you the amenities and storage you need while freeing up floor space to make your bathroom feel larger and more open. Wall hung items are actually one of the biggest bathroom trends right now! For more information, talk to your local bathroom fittings
The Wall Hung Toilet
One of the most popular wall hung items in the bathroom is the wall hung toilet. Wall hung toilets do not sit on the floor at all, and they usually have a concealed cistern in the wall, with just the flush button visible. All the plumbing is connected through the wall so that all you see the aforementioned flush button and the bowl itself. They are so popular thanks to their minimal, sleek lines and contemporary appearance. Don’t forget the fact that they are more hygienic than floor mounted toilets as you can clean all the way around the bowl without any problems! As well as the wall hung toilet, you can also get a wall hung bidet, if you like the idea of one!
The Wall Mounted Vanity and Basin
One of the biggest floor space stealers in the bathroom is the vanity and the basin but you can wall mount or wall hang these as well. Wall mounted or hung vanities and basins appear to float in mid air and they really do help to create an illusion of more space, as you can see the floor underneath. The plumbing required is routed through the wall not placed inside the cabinetry itself so you are not sacrificing any storage space at all. In fact, most wall hung vanities and basins have just as much if not more storage than the traditional floor mounted models. Drawers and pull out compartments within your vanity will allow you to keep your stuff super organised.
Wall Mounted Cupboards
I don’t know of a single bathroom that wouldn’t benefit from just a bit more storage but that doesn’t mean shoving a cupboard into a spare corner, making an already small bathroom feel smaller. Look for slimline wall mounted cupboards that give you lots of space for toiletries and other bathroom necessities while preserving that feeling of openness. Cupboards with mirrored fronts will also help to increase the illusion of space.
