When you think of a wall hung toilet, you probably imagine something used solely in hotels, restaurants or even bars. However, with more design choices than ever, the traditional close coupled toilet now doesn't have to be the only option when it comes to your own bathroom.

Designs such as the back to wall toilet are becoming more popular, so maybe it's worth considering taking a fresh look at your options?  These days adding a wall hung toilet to your bathroom is not as difficult as you think, with a whole kit costing as little as £300!

We take a look at just 5 reasons why a wall hung toilet could be a great investment:

1. Easier to clean

A major bonus, especially if you are one of those people (like me) who absolutely hate cleaning the bathroom. With no floor attachment, floors can be mopped or vacuumed without those awkward little nooks and crannies you often get with a traditional style toilet.

2. Space saver

With no external cistern, the projection of your toilet is significantly reduced, opening up your bathroom and giving you more space to play with. This is especially handy in smaller bathrooms.

3. Hidden plumbing

Not to sound negative, but the fact the cistern and all the plumbing is hidden behind a wall is one of the reasons why people often shy away from a wall hung toilet. However, as long as you ensure that an inspection panel is built into the design, you needn't worry as there should be sufficient access to the cistern should you ever need to get to it. And with the plumbing hidden, your bathroom will simply looks less cluttered and less complex, which leads us to No 4....

4. Minimalist look

If you are looking to create a sleek, sophisticated style, a wall hung toilet could be the key to unlocking this design concept.

With no base or cistern on show, there is minimal interruption to the flow of the bathroom, with your modern toilet appearing to float just above the floor.

5. Variety of styles

Despite the minimalist nature of a wall hung toilet, you can choose from a number of different styles. Opt for gentle curves and softer, rounded edges with a design like the Arte wall hung toilet, or you can push the style envelope a little more and select something with sharper lines and a more square shape, such as the Verso.

Of course, a wall hung toilet isn't for everyone, but if you end up going for some "hang time", you'll be well on the way to creating a modern bathroom that's the envy of your friends and family.
