The bathroom suite of today has changed out of all proportion from those of a few years ago and a good many of the user problems have gone with them. Certainly it can be expected that some of the peculiar eccentricities of the past will re surface at some time in the future, it was not long ago that the avocado coloured bathroom suite was the rage whereas now everything must be white. Some of the major changes are related to the operation of the system and these developments are certainly likely to continue for a long time to come.
Consider the household toilet which has gone through so many changes over the years and will probably go through a good many more. One of the major design changes concerns water usage as this is a very valuable natural resource and one that is likely to become more important as time goes by. It is also an expensive utility which will rise in cost at a rate far greater than the cost of living over the next few years. The restrictions on the manufacturers has made the twin flush cistern a priority on every toilet with water level usages down to 3 litres for the small flush and 6 litres for the large flush. This not only reduces the water usage but also the size of the cistern.
Probably the biggest change has been that this has allowed the cisterns to be designed much narrower than the past designs so that on a typical platform toilet the cistern is only 140 mm wide at it widest point. This has allowed the cistern to sit on the back of the toilet bowl and the final overall extension of the toilet and cistern has reduced considerably. The total extension of the toilet and cistern is only 700mm or less. As the bathroom is usually the smallest room in the house and usually the narrowest this is a great space saver.
These changes have spawned some great design changes and the cistern and toilet bowl fit much easier into the design of a single unit. There is far less need for the hidden cistern system as the design looks good on its own and the hidden cistern now takes up more room and extends the toilet from the wall to a significantly larger degree. This allows quite a different approach when considering the overall bathroom design.
