A stylish new toilet from Caredesign Specialist Interiors offers hand-free personal hygiene.

The wash and dry toilet of which 400,000 have been sold internationally, cleans with water instead of paper, combining bidet and warm air drying with conventional WC function.

The European quality, styling and design of the toilet makes it attractive to tasteful people of all ages, as well as households with people suffering from injuries, disabilities or age-related conditions restricting movement or balance, says Tim Knowles, national product manager of the Caredesign division of Enware Australia .

“As with other Caredesign kitchen and bathroom products, the wash and dry toilet harmonises beautifully with tasteful architecture, without any hint of institutional overtones or lifestyle compromise.

“Featuring a concealed cistern option to enhance its aesthetic appeal, the new toilet is equally attractive to:

  • Baby boomers downsizing
  • Parents of children with physical impairment
  • Sportspeople with injuries
  • Retirement village and aged care facilities
  • Or older people seeking to avoid unnecessary risks that might compromise their lifestyle in the future"

Backed by a national service and installation service, the wash and dry toilet features one-touch automatic functions and either infra-red or hand control options.

Caredesign provides practical product solutions that improve the quality of life maximising an individual’s independence, dignity, safety and comfort.

“The wash and dry toilet is part of a broader range of Caredesign interior design products that acknowledge people are all different, with varying abilities that continue to change as we journey through life,” says Tim Knowles.

New Caredesign products announced for Australia include Pressalit electrically driven lifts for kitchen worktops and wall cupboards, as well as a combination bath and shower that offers people of all ages easy access to bathing via a door that minimises the chances of accidents.
