With all the effort placed on blending traditional and contemporary styles in the home, a new trend has taken hold in the bathroom — concealed toilet tanks. We are seeing more and more of these in American home design after several companies have included them in their product line up.
We have worked with both Geberit and Porcher specifying their concealed toilet tank product for the MinnePHit House. As interior designers, we really like the clean lines of the toilet bowl and hiding the tank makes the whole room design open up.
We talked with the architect for the project, Tim Eian of TE Studios, and he has been specifying concealed toilet tanks for projects over the past several years.
At the national Kitchen and Bath Show this past April, Gerberit introduced a water saving dual-flush tank that uses 3 or 6 liters per flush. This tank fits in a standard 2″ x 4″ wood or steel wall and heights can be adjusted for 15″ to 19″ for the bowl.
