Toilet Design Ideas


From powder rooms to cloakrooms, it may be surprising to find that your toilet can have a large impact on the overall look and feel of your bathroom. Often overlooked in favour of statement baths or basins, the right toilet can create a real sense of style in your space and could even become a stunning focal point.

Whether you love the subtle opulence of vintage-inspired design or enjoy the clean lines of a more contemporary look in your bathroom, your toilet should always add to (and never detract from) your aesthetic. We’re here to help you make the most of your bathroom space with a range of toilet ideas designed to inspire you in creating a bathroom paradise that really makes a statement.

Toilet design ideas to complement your space

Whether you have a large en suite or are planning to update a smaller cloakroom, the first detail to think about is what style of toilet works for the space you have.

Larger rooms are perfect for experimenting with bolder looks and choosing a statement toilet can add a sense of dramatic flair to your bathroom. Look for styles that draw the eye and bring your toliet to the forefront of your design. For example, fans of the vintage-inspired will adore the exquisite Dorchester High Level Cistern from our Blenheim Collection. Evoking the exquisite opulence of Blenheim Palace, our high-level cisterns bring a drop of grandeur to any bathroom space, while the clean lines and classic styling of the Blenheim Collection keep your look contemporary. Particularly well-suited to bathrooms with high ceilings, the Dorchester high-level cisterns truly make a bold statement.

If you’d prefer all the style without the height of a high-level cistern, the Blenheim Collection offers plenty of toilet design ideas for your space. The low-level cistern is a great option if you love the traditional look but don’t have the ceiling space for a taller toilet. Alternatively, the Blenheim standard height toilet offers the palatial style of the English Baroque look with space-saving design.

Toliet design ideas for smaller spaces

However, smaller spaces need not compromise on design. The key to creating cohesive and stylish look in small rooms (for example, a downstairs cloakroom or guest bathroom) is marrying simplicity with eye-catching design.

For smaller bathrooms, look for toilet design ideas that sit well in the space you have and that complement your chosen suite. For example, our Claverton Collection makes an inspired choice for those who love the subtle yet timelessly elegant proportions of Georgian design. Like Georgian architecture, the Claverton Close Coupled toilet is defined by exquisite curves contrasted with sharp lines, giving your toilet a luxuriously classic look that has been updated to suit properties of any period. The Claverton Close Coupled toilet works particularly well with fitted furniture, such as our Caversham range, making it a great choice for creating extra storage too (an ideal space-saver for small bathrooms).

If you’re planning on updating an even smaller space, such as a downstairs cloakroom, there are plenty of WC design ideas that can help you create a beautifully styled room. For more compact spaces, a back to wall design may work well for you. These toilets cleverly maximise the space you have available by concealing the cistern behind either fitted furniture or a wall. They can look truly stunning too. Our Claverton Back to Wall toilet in particular brings relaxed and feminine elegance to your cloakroom and looks especially exquisite when matched with statement tiles and a soft-hued colour palette. Your luxury cloakroom will never look better.
