VitrA Close Coupled Toilets
Close-coupled toilets are probably the most common style of toilet you will see these days—especially in residential settings. This is a style of toilet where the cistern and toilet pan is closely coupled together. In the vast majority of cases, the cistern will rest on the back of the toilet pan, with a few fixings to the wall behind for stability.
These VitrA toilets have many advantages, such as being an all-in-one solution. Unlike wall hung or VitrA's back to wall toilets—which need a separate cistern installing—close coupled toilets just need plumbing in and they are ready to go. Because the cistern is part of the toilet, they do tend to take up a little more space than toilets with a separate cistern, but close coupled toilets are available in some very compact designs that would suit even the most confined of bathrooms.
VitrA manufactures a range of close coupled toilets with a strong lean towards modern design language, such as clean edges, and straight lines. That being said, you can still find close coupled toilets with a conventional look, such as the VitrA Layton Close Coupled Toilet (Open Back), which offers all of VitrA’s high quality, durability, and performance, but sticks to a very traditional design.
One of the more popular designs from the VitrA Valarte collection. It's their Valarte close coupled toilet, which creates a nice fusion between modern, straight lines, and an almost Victorian profile, with curving features around the outside. The VitrA Valarte achieves the remarkable feat of fitting in with both modern and traditional bathrooms and can add an air of timelessness to a bathroom. The design also encloses the plumbing within the body of the toilet, making for a much cleaner look overall.
For something with a distinctly more modern feel, the VitrA Integra close coupled toilet is a masterpiece of modern art, with clean lines and smooth curves. The base of the toilet encloses the plumbing, making the overall look much cleaner than it would be with exposed pipes. The cistern’s slim, straight design means it takes up relatively little space, while the toilet itself is compact enough to fit in smaller bathrooms, but still large enough to be comfortably used. Like many of VitrA’s options, the Integra is made from Vitreous China, and finished in a brilliant, clean white.
Possibly one of VitrA’s most popular designs is their S20 close coupled toilet. This design comes in a few different variations, such as comfort height for a higher seat, and short projection for a more compact footprint. The VitrA S20 is another design that tucks the plumbing away within the body of the toilet for a nice clean look. The design itself mixes straight edges and curves for an unmistakably modern feel.
