Innovation combined with maximum functionality – a typical feature of toilets from Villeroy & Boch. They are available in a wide selection of different designs. You can choose round or square/rectangular toilet bowls for your bathroom, with a modern or nostalgic look to match your own interior style. As has been standard for the Villeroy & Boch brand for more than 250 years, all toilets are of the highest quality and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. A washdown toilet has become the norm in bathrooms, as the odour that develops is not as strong compared to shelf toilets (a type of toilet popular in several European countries). Excrement drops directly into the water in the siphon. They do not have the platform, that shelf toilets have, making cleaning easier, minimising odours and increasing hygiene.
Villeroy & Boch offers wall-mounted and floor-standing washdown toilets to suit all tastes. You can also choose between standard size toilets for large bathrooms and shorter models that fit perfectly in guest bathrooms. The product range has many different designs. Clean lines match modern bathrooms while rounder shapes have a more nostalgic look. But it doesn’t matter whether you prefer a cosmopolitan, rustic or classic style, you are bound to find the right ceramic sanitary ware in our collections.
Cleaning a toilet is a chore no one enjoys doing. For this reason, there are toilets with a special ceramic, CeramicPlus, which makes cleaning a lot easier. Thanks to the dirt-repellent surface finish, dirt and limescale simply roll off and flow directly into the siphon. The surface not only stays cleaner for longer and is very low maintenance, but it also minimises the development of germs and bacteria. It also eliminates odours as dirt residue cannot stick to the surface.
Never use dish sponges with a rough surface or scouring powder to clean. They will damage the CeramicPlus surface over time and the water-repellent effect will disappear. What’s more, these kinds of cleaning agents are not really necessary as CeramicPlus doesn’t even allow stubborn dirt to develop. You can use everyday household all-purpose cleaners and household vinegar as cleaning products. Villeroy & Boch also has the innovative AntiBac surface coating for added hygiene. The glaze, containing silver ions, is integrated in the ceramic and inhibits bacterial growth by more than 99%. These microparticles are safe for you and the environment and provide lasting hygiene protection.
The new rimless toilet trend has increasingly found its ways into private households in the last few years. Toilets without a rim contribute significantly to more hygiene in the bathroom. Bacteria and smells accumulate and spread under the rim of conventional toilets, as this area is difficult to clean. The innovative DirectFlush technology from Villeroy & Boch, which can be found in the Architectura, O.novo Vita and Subway 2.0 ranges, allows you to clean the inner bowl of your toilet completely and thoroughly. The unique flushing system prevents water splashing while minimising water consumption. So you save water while improving cleaning performance – an innovation that also protects the environment.
Villeroy & Boch’s latest innovation provides a feeling of freshness – the ViFresh solution, which received the German Design Award in 2017. A few washdown toilets, such as from the Subway 2.0 range, have a discreet compartment behind the toilet seat that can be filled with rim blocks or gels. When flushed, water flows through the fragrance holder, spreading pleasant freshness throughout your bathroom. This solution is perfect for rimless toilets as a standard rim block that is suspended under the seat will not hold well. Furthermore, refilling the ViFresh fragrance holder is easier and more hygienic as you do not need to touch any unhygienic toilet areas such as the inner bowl and toilet rim.
Our wide range has something for everyone to accentuate their own bathroom style. Washdown toilets with clear lines and edges from the Memento, Architectura and Subway 2.0 collections add a designer touch to your modern bathroom. Rounder shapes, which are particularly comfortable to sit on, can be found in the Aveo New Generation, O.novo and Vivia collections. You can spread a little nostalgia in your bathroom with toilets from the Hommage collection. Take note of the required size and/or length of the toilet before you install a new toilet bowl. Shorter toilet bowls are perfect for small guest bathrooms. Conventional toilet lengths are the first choice for family bathrooms. Villeroy & Boch ranges such as Subway 2.0 or O.novo and others offer different lengths so that you can stay true to your style in all of your bathrooms, whether large or small. You may also have to consider the width of the toilet bowl, depending on your needs and bathroom layout. Villeroy & Boch has toilet models with widths from 315 to 410 mm.
Whether you install a floor-standing or wall-mounted washdown toilet in your bathroom depends on your personal preferences. A floor-standing toilet, often with an exposed cistern, is generally the best choice for certain styles in order to create a harmonious image. It is also easier to install a floor-standing toilet. However, wall-mounted toilets are becoming more popular. There isn’t any floor contact, so you can wipe the floor underneath the toilet and clean the bathroom more thoroughly. It also gives the bathroom an airier look, as the cistern is often concealed behind the wall and only the flush plates are visible. In turn, it creates more space in your bathroom.
Villeroy & Boch has developed toilet bowls for special requirements by making them longer so that they can also be installed in accessible bathrooms. Longer models from the Architectura Vita and O.novo Vita collections protrude into the room, allowing you to attach the required grab bars, which make it safer to change from the wheelchair to the toilet seat. Raised toilets are recommended for older people and people with limited mobility. Standard toilets are lower than dining room chairs, so that in certain circumstances it can be difficult to get up from a toilet seat. The Architectura Vita, Subway 2.0 and O.novo Vita collections have raised toilets.
