If you’re looking for a Toilet for a small space such as a compact cloakroom or en-suite, we have Toilets available with shorter projections. If cleaning is your priority when buying your Toilet, we have a Toilets available in a ‘fully shrouded’ design, this is where the Toilet Cistern and bowl is against the wall from top to bottom, meaning there are no awkward spaces to get around when cleaning. Our selection of Toilets that are back to the wall is a great alternative Toilet to the standard Toilet. Our Toilets that sit back to the wall are fitted to a wall or against a bathroom furniture unit, perfect for hiding any unsightly plumbing or pipework making them not too dissimilar to a toilet that is close coupled.

A Quick Note on the importance of Toilets
Granted toilets are not the most glamorous invention when compared to the aeroplane or the mobile phone, but imagine trying to live without your toilet. Humans are unique in many ways when compared to the rest of earth animals, and the way we dispose of our waste is no different. The reason for the toilet was the industrial revolution pulling people out of the open country in toward cramped cities for jobs and a better life. Unlike the countryside, you cannot just throw your waste out anywhere in more crowded conditions like a town or city, so naturally, that's what we did. Only when this became a very serious problem did we stop throwing our waste out into the street.
We have Alexander Cumming to thank for today's toilets, he was granted the patent for the S curve in all toilets that prevents sewer gas rising up and into your home, along with anything else from the sewer. 405 of the world still don't have access to a flushing toilet like we are used to, so next time you sit down on the loo, take a moment to appreciate your toilet just that little bit more.
