Wall-Mounted Toilets Provide Flexibility and Floor Space
Let's say you really need an extra half-bath, but the only space available is under the stairs. Or maybe you're stuck with a cramped and awkward layout, and you'd love to eke out a few more inches of floor space. Problems like these require flexible solutions, and one that handily meets the challenge is a wall-mounted toilet. No longer exclusive to million-dollar homes, these European-style commodes are relatively affordable and easy to maintain. And because they're suspended... above the floor, these toilets free up precious space and make cleanup a breeze.
Bear in mind that because their water tanks are concealed behind the drywall, wall-mounted toilets are best chosen for new construction or an extensive remodel. What's more, this is not a DIY project; you'll want an experienced professional to handle the installation.
Ready to get an idea of what's available? Take a look at these eight sleek and stylish wall-mounted models.
