Close Coupled Toilets

The original… close coupled toilets are the toilet with a cistern sat on the back of the pan, by far the most popular option in British bathrooms, one of the main reasons is because of the easy fitting and maintenance.

Choose a fully back to wall close coupled toilet if you’re looking to hide unsightly waste pipes and want to remove space for dust to gather behind the toilet… another way that you can help improve hygiene in and around the toilet is to go for a rimless close coupled toilet – the absence of a rim inside the toilet removes a place for the germs to hide!

Short projection toilets are a great option for small cloakrooms and bathrooms where you’re looking to save space, our shortest options are less than 600mm deep which allows for plenty of room in even the most compact of rooms!

If you’re looking to complete a “period style” bathroom, take a look at our range of traditional close coupled toilets.
