Will I need a back to wall unit?

There are two ways you can install your back to wall toilet; either with a unit, or directly against the wall. Whichever one works best for you can be down to the design of your bathroom as well as your own taste.

With a unit

Using a back to wall unit can make things a bit more straightforward when installing your toilet. The concealed cistern is installed within the unit, eliminating the need for setting it in the wall behind the toilet. The unit can also provide a handy shelf space.

Without a unit

If you want the ultimate sleek and minimalist look, you can install your toilet against the wall, so the cistern is completely hidden away inside. This is more complicated to install, however, and may require the addition of a stud wall or boxed section to make room for it. This can have its advantages however, as it can give you the opportunity add shelf space or storage in the space above.
