Close Coupled Toilets Under £150
Toilets… not exactly the most sensational item to talk about I’d agree but getting the wrong loo for your bathroom or cloakroom can really drive you potty! Close coupled toilets add a totally modern style to suit any contemporary setting and lots of models come with eco-friendly flush options too. As always, our WYB (What’s Your Budget) team is on hand to ensure buying the best close coupled toilet on a budget is made easy and hopefully a bit more fun too! What’s your budget for a close coupled toilet? Can you buy a close coupled toilet for less than £150? WYB finds out!
What is a close coupled toilet?
Unlike traditional high level toilets which have a connected cistern way up high on the wall or wall hung toilets which have concealed cisterns hidden away, a close coupled toilet is a compact loo which consists of a toilet pan and cistern; which are neatly fused together and generally manufactured as back to wall designs.
This compact and very tidy design makes close coupled toilets incredibly modern and extremely practical for the majority of today’s contemporary bathroom layouts, although there are traditional styles available for those who prefer classic styling.
Choosing a close coupled toilet under £150
Toilets can surprise many first-time buyers as it can be very easy to spend £700 plus on a new toilet, and that can be before you’ve even factored in the additional accessories including toilet seats and cistern levers which don’t always come with the toilet itself. Close coupled toilets aren’t the most expensive type of toilet you can buy but depending on the brand and features it can be quite easy to run over a £150 budget.
Before you buy a close coupled toilet make sure you have the right sizes. If you’re working with a small bathroom space then look for toilets with a short projection profile. Short projection is basically the depth of the toilet or how far it sticks out! Smaller bathrooms, en suites and cloakrooms will also benefit from close coupled toilets which have reduced width and height as they take up as little space as possible.
If you’re fortunate enough to have a medium to large bathroom space then you could opt for a compact toilet or go for one of maximum height, width and depth as filling the room may be more desirable for you.
