DIY Champions, while we can't hand you every tool for your home improvement quest, we've sprinkled some handy affiliate links below for fitting your new Toilet Roll Holder

Materials and Tools Needed:

  1. Wall toilet roll holder (includes holder, screws, and wall plugs)
  2. Offset Screwdriver
  3. Drill
  4. Level
  5. Pencil
  6. Measuring tape
  7. Hammer (for wall plug)

Step-by-Step Guide:

1. Choose the Location:

  • Decide on the ideal location for your toilet roll holder. It should be within easy reach from the toilet but not too close to avoid water splashes.

2. Measure and Mark:

  • Use a measuring tape to find the desired height for the holder. Standard height is typically around 26 inches (66 cm) above the floor.
  • Use a pencil to mark the spot on the wall.

3. Check for Studs:

  • Use a stud finder to locate the studs in the wall. Mounting the holder on a stud provides more stability.
  • If the desired location is not on a stud, you may need to use wall anchors.

4. Levelling:

  • Place a level on the wall horizontally at the marked spot to ensure that the holder will be straight.
  • Adjust the height or position as needed.

5. Install Wall Anchors (if necessary):

  • If the marked spot is not on a stud, install wall anchors following the manufacturer's instructions. Use a drill to make holes for the anchors.

6. Install the Holder:

  • If using screws, align the holes in the holder with the marked spots.
  • If using wall anchors, place the holder over the anchors and secure it with screws.
  • Tighten the screws until the holder is firmly attached to the wall.

7. Double Check Levelling:

  • Once the holder is attached, double-check the level to ensure it is straight. Make any adjustments if necessary.

8. Test the Holder:

  • Before putting a roll of toilet paper on the holder, give it a gentle tug to ensure it is securely mounted.

9. Clean-ups:

  • Wipe down the holder and surrounding area to remove any marks or dust.

That's it! You've successfully installed a wall-mounted toilet roll holder. Keep in mind that specific instructions may vary depending on the brand and model of the holder you are using, so be sure to check the provided instructions for any additional steps or recommendations.
