Whether you’re getting your bathroom remodeled, or your old toilet isn’t cutting it for you anymore, there are quite a few things to consider when shopping for a new toilet. With so many new, technologically advanced options available on the market right now, it’s hard to narrow down which is your “perfect” toilet. Here are some simple ways you can narrow down the many new options and features available to find what will work best for your home and family.
Ideal Style. One way to narrow down your options is to think of the overall style of your bathroom. A one-piece toilet offers a more trendy look and is easier to clean, but two-piece toilets are much more budget-friendly and have a traditional look.
The Bowl Shape. You’re going to need to consider the size of the bowl. An elongated bowl will give you a longer bowl, which is great if you have enough free space. Smaller bathrooms can opt for a round front bowl to fit the space better.
A Comfortable Toilet Height. As you get older, it may be harder to sit on a lower toilet. If you’re planning ahead and want to purchase a taller toilet, companies make “comfort height” toilets that are two inches higher than standard toilets.
Flushing Options. Gravity flush toilets have both single or dual-flush models. A dual flush offers the option for a full flush or a half-flush. You can also choose a toilet with assisted-flushing, where air pressure adds to the flushing power.
Selecting an Installer. With so many plumbers in the area, how do you choose which company is best to install your new toilet? It’s best to select a company that has a proven track record of delivering what they promise customers, that always arrives on time, has excellent customer service skills, and gets the project done right the first time. You can find reviews of local plumbing companies via Facebook, Google, or Yelp to see what other people’s experiences were like hiring that company.
