Q: We’re remodeling our new-to-us home and plan to install a small powder room under our staircase area. Since we plan to remodel small areas of our home at a time, we want everything first class and customized to our needs. Can you please give us tips for choosing high-end plumbing fixtures for a small bathroom?

A: With completely new bathrooms, the good news is you can have the rough plumbing installed to accept wall-hung fixtures.

Installing a wall-hung sink and toilet can open up a surprising amount of personal floor space in a small bathroom.

More good news is that years ago, wall-hung plumbing fixtures were limited as far as high end features and designs. But, today many styles of residential wall-hung plumbing fixtures are available with all the latest features.

For instance, smart wall-hung toilets can be loaded with options like integrated bidet-like cleansing and electronic dual-flushing. Also, the height of a wall-hung toilet can be adjusted to your needs, giving high hopes you’ll end up with a first-class custom bathroom.
