The Best Toilet is a Rimless Toilet

Rimless toilets are the latest trend in Australia and have been globally for some time, particularly in Europe. The rim is the part around the top of the toilet pan where the water traditionally flows around to clean the bowl and is often hard to reach and clean. As the name suggests, a rimless toilet suite does not include the inner rim which is present in all standard toilets. While rimless toilets look just like standard toilets, the difference is obvious on the inside of the toilet bowl. Most rimless toilets make use of a direct-flush mechanism in which water is shot around the toilet bowl, whereas in most standard toilets, water is distributed around the toilet bowl under the rim.

The five advantages of rimless toilets

  1. Hygiene is built-in: Hard-to-reach areas of a traditional toilet pan are breeding grounds for germs to hide. Without this rim and with the advanced flushing system washing those germs away, rimless toilets provide a more hygienic day-to-day experience.
  2. They're easy to clean: we know that as much as you love your new bathroom, cleaning the toilet is never an enjoyable task. Rimless toilets are quick and easy to clean because those tricky nooks aren’t there for grime and germs to build up.
  3. Superior flushing: rimless toilets use a direct flushing system that distributes water around the pan more effectively. This means that each flush is more efficient. They reduce liters of water required while also providing a powerful flush.
  4. A wide range of rimless toilet designs: do you want a sleek profile to fit in with your clutter-free lifestyle? Choose a wall-hung rimless toilet that works with in-wall cisterns. Are you retrofitting your current toilet? A back-to-wall toilet suite is a compact solution and can fit into your current plumbing setup with both bottom and backwater inlet options.
  5. New technology is affordable: this technology is available at every price point, meaning that you don’t need to blow your budget to find a rimless toilet that fits your style and is within your price range. From family-friendly Jess rimless toilets to Australia’s reputable Bravo rimless pans, there is a rimless toilet to suit any lifestyle and aesthetic.

Types Of Rimless Toilets

As rimless toilets become more popular, the number of different types grows. At Arova Kitchen & Bathroom, we have a great selection of rimless toilets so you can find the perfect one for your bathroom.

 

  1. Rimless Wall Hung Toilets: Wall-hung toilets are a popular choice for anyone looking to create a stylish, modern bathroom. Raising the toilet off the floor helps to create the illusion of extra space and the lack of a visible cistern gives a sleek, clutter-free aesthetic. Coupling this modern toilet design with a rimless pan is a perfect match that will look great in any contemporary bathroom.
  2. Rimless Back To Wall Toilets: A back-to-wall toilet doesn't have a traditional cistern. Instead, the cistern sits inside the wall or within a piece of furniture to give you a simple, clutter-free look. Back-to-wall toilets are slightly easier to install than a wall hung option as they don't require a steel support frame. Coupling a rimless pan with a back-to-wall design is perfect for anyone looking to add a stylish, modern toilet to their bathroom.
  3. Rimless Close Coupled Toilets: Alongside the modern styles, rimless toilets are also available in a more traditional close coupled variant. With a close-coupled toilet, the cistern sits directly on top of the toilet pan, so they are easy to install. A rimless close coupled toilet is ideal for anyone who wants the benefits of a rimless toilet but doesn't want the complexities involved with installing a wall-hung or back-to-wall toilet.
