    Hello! Thanks for your question.

    Among other benefits, concealed cisterns are traditionally much quieter than conventional cisterns - mainly due to the fact that the cistern itself is insulated within plaster and tile.

    It can depend on other factors as well though, such as the material and quality of toilet & cistern you purchase, as well as the quality of your pipes/plumbing within the home.

    We would always recommend installing a reputable good quality brand such as Giberit to minimise any concerns or issues.

6. Spruce up the bathroomDon’t wait until you have enough money for a bathroom reno to freshen it up. Simply changing a towel rail, toilet roll holder, hand towels or even vanity accessories can make an impact in a tired wet zone. If the toilet is looking pretty ordinary, but you’re not ready to buy a new one, simply replace the old toilet seat with something of quality. Freshen up the bathroom

3. Splash out on a new toiletUpdating your toilet is another great improvement to make before selling your property. It’s easy to see why – no-one wants to use an old toilet! You will be amazed at the difference upgrading this one component can make to the look of your bathroom. If the toilet is in perfect condition, but the seat and lid are not, consider simply replacing the dated elements.

Tip 1: Talk with your builder and plumber and ask if it is possible for the whole wall to be brought forward to allow for room in the wall cavity for the cistern.

Upgrade your toilet Changing the toilet cover and seat is a quick way to spruce an old toilet. There are two standard seat sizes: round and oblong. I recommend purchasing from the same manufacturer as your toilet; colours come in many shades, so this can help ensure a better match. Soft-close lids are also a nice feature and may even encourage family members to practice better seat-down habits.Browse more bathrooms with wall-mounted toilets

Decorative tilesPorcelain tiles can be used as a decorative feature in bathrooms and kitchens on floors, walls and splashbacks. These glazed porcelain tiles have a patchwork of motifs that add pattern, dimension and shape to the bathroom wall and floor.

1. Tinker with the toiletMany decorators will have ideas about how to create the illusion of space in a small room or house, but the trick is to actually free up space. And most of the time, the busiest and most-used rooms in the house – the bathroom, laundry and kitchen – are the best rooms to start with.If you find your fixtures take up too much space, slim them down or get rid of them altogether. A wall-hung toilet with a concealed cistern, for example, saves precious capacity in the smallest room in the house. The cistern sits in the wall and the buttons and pan are all you can see. Be aware though that concealed cisterns can pose an access problem for your plumber and one day that cistern will need maintenance and eventually, replacement.Pro tips: Hide an access panel, or position the cistern where the wall it backs onto is a wardrobe or cupboard, and only buy well-known brands so replacement parts are easily found.
