Modern Toilet & Basin Suites Buying Guide


Whether you want to give your bathroom a sleek, designer edge or simply feel that it's time to bring a tired setting up to date, you can't go wrong with a modern toilet and basin suite. These fixtures are designed to give the room a sleek, coordinated vibe that will look fresh for years to come. The only problem is that because there are so many options available to you it can be hard to choose! Once you have selected the right suite for you though, there are a few other things you need to know about, which are detailed below.

Do taps and wastes come with modern suites?

As a general rule you won't normally receive a tap and waste with your 4 piece suite. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though as it means you can choose the exact items you want; so that stunning waterfall spout tap you've had your eye on can be paired with the sleek lines of your new basin to give you a more personalised finish.

Are soft close toilet seats included?

You'll find that most of our modern bathroom suites come with a soft closing seat. These products are a great alternative to regular designs as they prevent children from slamming the seat on their fingers. They also avoid the horrible, loud bang you get when you accidentally drop standard seats down too fast. Not all of our suites come with soft close items however, so do be aware that you may need to buy one separately. The product description will tell you exactly what's included in the package.

How easy is installation?

As there's no bathtub to deal with here, fitting the modern toilet and basin suite yourself shouldn't be a massively tricky task provided you have at least a general idea of what you're doing. If you're keeping the new toilet and basin in the same place as the old items then you won't have to worry about things like re-routing any pipework which is a bonus.

If you're not totally confident in your own abilities however then we highly advise contacting a plumber to fit your new suite for you in order to avoid causing any serious damage to your home.
