Many of the homeowners do not consider much about their toilets while building a new house or renovating their house. However, it is very important to have a good toilet for a comfortable, modern, well-functioning home. Now we will discuss some tips for choosing a perfect toilet for your house.
Considering the shape of the toilet is very important. You can choose one among an elongated bowl and a round front bowl. Homeowners having less space for their toilet should go for round front as it is around two inches shorter. On the other hand, for having a comfortable toilet, larger elongated front is recommended.
After deciding the shape, you need to choose the size of the toilet. You can choose length, width and height of your toilet as per your requirement. It is recommended that you first measure the space where the toilet is required to be installed and then decide its size.
Part of toilet from where water and waste goes out is referred as trap way. As per standards, it should be at least 1 inches in diameter. However, if you want to minimize the clogging problems then you can go for a bigger trap way also.
You can also choose one among the two types of toilets: gravity fed toilets and pressure assisted toilets. In pressure assisted toilets, air in the tank is compressed as it fills with water. When you flush the toilet, the pressurized air pushes the water more strongly into the bowl, resulting in a better flush.
Out of one piece toilet and two piece toilet, later one is more popular as it is an economical option. In two piece toilet, you will get separate tank and bowl that are connected at the time of toilet installation. One piece toilet, generally consists of 5 or six parts that are connected to form one piece. This style of toilet is more stylish, expensive and easier to clean. Since these toilets are small so they are ideal for smaller spaces.
While a toilet needs to work well but at the same time it also needs to look good in your bathroom. Fortunately, today's toilets come in a huge selection of colors and sizes. Keep in mind that choosing a color other than white can significantly add to the toilet's price.
High end toilets may come with heated seats, warm air drying systems and built-in bidets. Few toilets are also designed to have a higher seat, making sitting down and standing easier.
