The water closet or WC is an essential part of your bathroom. It is a basic necessity that we may take for granted, as almost 2/5 of the world’s population do not have access to adequate sanitation.

So, how do we fit a WC if we have a small bathroom? Let’s take a look at some points to consider…

  • The fit
  • When size is of essence, we need to take into account the fit of the WC. There are a myriad of WC in the market of various fits, like the standard 12-inch rough-in WC. Depending on how small your bathroom is, you may also find that a 10-inch rough-in WC may be more suitable for your bathroom. 

  • The type of WC
  • Choosing the right type of WC for your bathroom may seem tricky. There are 3 main types of WC, which are the one-piece WC, two-piece WC, and the wall hung WC. All of them serve the same purpose, with a slight difference in appearance and affordability. For example, a two-piece WC usually costs less than a one-piece WC.A wall hung WC on the other hand, may look neater in your small bathroom. 

  • Accessories 
  • Some WCs come with a built-in bidet, which can be particularly useful if you have a small bathroom. This is because you do not have to make extra space to install bidet fixtures outside of your WC.
