Unless you’ve been previously involved with a bathroom renovation, you may be unaware of the various different types of toilets that are out there. Toilets come in all shapes and sizes, and in both traditional and contemporary styles, which can make choosing the right toilet for your new wet room a trickier task than first anticipated. Whilst it’s perhaps not as exciting as deciding on your wetroom accessories, or tiles; choosing the right toilet to suit your needs is key. Continue reading this post to learn the different styles of toilet available, and see how to make the best pick for your bathroom.
One of the benefits of wetrooms is that they can work in pretty much any space, in the past we’ve even installed wetrooms underneath someone’s stairs! However, when you are working with limited space, it’s even more important that the space is fully functional and uses every inch of floor space effectively. After deciding the optimal position for your toilet, the next big decision is which toilet will be the best for you. Some of the best options for small wet room toilets include:
Just as there are toilets that suit both small and larger spaces, there are toilets to fit almost any style of wet room or bathroom! If a traditional finish is more your style, opt for a high level, low level or close coupled toilet. High-level toilets give off an air of authenticity, but if you don’t have space available, a low-level toilet is just as suited.
Is minimalism more your thing? Wall hung, short projection and back to wall toilets are the right fit for you. These styles of toilet take up as little space as possible and feature hidden plumbing work; creating seamless lines, and clutter-free spaces. If being as environmentally friendly possible is important to you, look for a high-efficiency toilet (HET) to save water.

Planning to Installation: Turning a Loft Into a Wet Room
30th March 2020
My client bought a range of Wet Room Unislope Systems from our local retailer, Bathworks. We struggled to find anyone to come to site and take responsibility for the waterproofing until we came across WM | Wetroom Materials. They were willing to stand over their tanking system and more than helpful throughout all stages of the installation from site survey and room preparation to installation. A 10 Year no leak fully insured warranty gave me the confidence that we were dealing with a professional organisation. I would highly recommend these guys and will certainly be using them going forward.

I have honestly found, WM | Wetroom Materials to be an easy and reliable company to work with. Whether it be a one wet room residential project, apartment block or a gym; they ensure there are no installation problems and we don’t have to worry about leaks. They take care of the specification and advising us on correct build ups and preparation. On a recent project we were able to buy their Unislope System from our bathroom show room retailer and they subsequently came to site to tank out the bathrooms. It was a time sensitive job and The Wet Room lads worked through the evening and into the weekend to ensure we completed the project on time. I have no hesitation in recommending WM, they are a pleasure to deal with.

In Bright Designs, we understand the importance of specifying a reliable waterproofing system for bathrooms. We have worked on a number of projects with WM | Wetroom Materials over the years and I can honestly say that their waterproofing installation service offers complete peace of mind for us and our clients. The WM Team are there throughout all stages of the project from site survey and specification to installation. More importantly they also give us a 10 year no leak guarantee. I also like the fact that they will handle communication with the client and contractors in terms of delivering a high-quality installation which allows me the head space to focus on other aspects of the build."
