In every bathroom, there's no fixture more important than the toilet! And while the basic function of the toilet hasn't changed much over the years, the look of it certainly has! Yet, as more of us seek to create a statement in the bathroom, the design of our toilet can make a huge visual difference in this space.
One design trend that takes the all-important toilet to the next step is that of the high level toilet. Sleek, elevated and streamlined, a high level toilet offers a spectacular focal point in the bathroom. Complementing both traditional and modern décor, a high level toilet can also be the most comfortable and hygienic of choices.
Here The Bathroom Showroom looks at the popularity of the high level toilet. Showcasing our very own collections we explore the array of benefits these toilets offer.

What Is a High Level Toilet?

A high level toilet consists of two main parts including a pan and a cistern. Whereas traditional toilets have the cistern, or tank, attached to the bowl, high-level toilets have this mounted on the wall above the bowl. 
Elevated and fixed up high on the wall, the cistern connects to the low-level toilet pan below via a long and exposed flush pipe. To finish, a long pull chain is attached that is used to flush the toilet. Overall, this design makes it more streamlined and modern in appearance as well as more functional.

Do High Level Toilets Flush Better?

Many high level toilets have a dual-flush system, allowing users to choose between a low-flow flush and a high-flow flush. This helps to save water and reduce your water bill and environmental footprint while making it a smart choice for eco-conscious homeowners.
Some people believe high level cisterns may not flush as well compared to their modern counterparts. Yet, with such modern technology available in toilets nowadays, this isn't the case. High level cisterns can be said to benefit from improved gravity and greater pressure with the higher cistern helping water flush with more force. So, it’s worth looking at the overall design of the toilet itself, including noting how much water is in the cistern and seeking out those designs that prompt less water per flush.

What Are the Advantages of a High-Level Toilet?

One of the most popular reasons why homeowners opt for a high level toilet is its sheer style. Offering a streamlined design, whereas some may find traditional toilets bulky and often unattractive, high level toilets promote sleekness and minimalism. 
Ideal for keeping in line with Victorian and Georgian style décor, high level toilets allow you to recreate the original features of period bathrooms. They do this while promoting a sense of elegance, boasting some of those most charming period features. 
High level toilets also help to visually and physically free up more space in your bathroom. So, this makes them ideal choices for both modern and contemporary décor. This is especially so when they’re customised and the chains, handles, and cistern brackets are swapped out for more modern features.
