As mentioned earlier infrastructure support helps proliferate the technology. Walsh says most new construction in Japan includes outlets near the toilet location which makes installing a high-tech toilet easier. Plus in Japan many units are small and have only one bathroom. So splurging on a high-end toilet often makes more financial sense than in America where homes have multiple toilets.
With in-wall toilets the tank is not visible because it’s installed inside the wall. These toilets definitely require more of an investment than standard options especially since they tend to require more construction effort but the clean profile is popular for achieving a luxe look. I can say from personal experience that sometimes you can’t know whether an in-wall toilet is an option until the wall has been opened to reveal the plumbing arrangement so keep this in mind before plunging into a retrofit as you may have to adapt your plans accordingly.
Taking the two-piece look to the extreme retro chain-pull toilets with tanks set higher on the wall give a certain old-world charm to a room. A well-made high-tank toilet will function just as well as a “close-coupled” (standard) option so the choice comes down to look more than mechanics in most situations although these toilets can be a little more expensive. If you want your toilet to be noticeable and charming instead of minimalist and hidden away this is an option to consider.
