The Pros & Cons of Wall-Mounted Toilets



When homeowners discuss toilets with their bathroom remodelers, most automatically think about floor-mounted models. After all, it is the kind of toilet that everyone has. Recently, however, wall-mounted toilets have been gaining in popularity.

The Pros

Wall-mounted toilets have numerous advantages that attract homeowners. High-tech features such as automated lids, integrated dryers, bowl lights and other features add comfort. Another advantage is that the tank is usually hidden behind a wall, giving you additional space in your bathroom and creating a more streamlined appearance.

If you install a wall-mounted toilet in your bathroom, you’ll find that it’s much easier to clean compared to floor-mounted toilets. Since the toilet is attached to the wall, you eliminate hard-to-reach spaces, allowing you to quickly and thoroughly clean the toilet itself. To add a wall-mounted toilet in your bathroom, simply turn to the bathroom renovation experts at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Elizabethtown.

Some Cons

While it’s true that wall-mounted toilets have a lot of advantages, don’t forget that they do come with their own set of disadvantages. One is that there are fewer options to choose from since they’re still gaining in popularity.

Another disadvantage is that wall-mounted toilets can be costly to buy and install. The tank and wall mounting assembly are usually sold separately from the toilet bowl, which alone could cost more than a floor-mounted toilet. And since the water and waste lines will have to be relocated, professionals will have to open up your bathroom walls. This could add a significant amount to your project’s overall cost.

Wall-mounted toilets can also be difficult to fix. As stated before, the tank is usually sealed within the wall, meaning that you’ll have to open up your wall to repair or replace damaged parts.
