Choose the Right Toilet For Your Bathroom

Choosing The Right Toilet

Who knew there were so many options when selecting a toilet? Style, height and function all play a role in selecting the right one. Our showroom alone has more than 30 different toilets on display! Here are some tips to help find the right one:

THE PERFECT FIT

Comfort is a consideration when selecting a toilet. Many manufacturers offer toilets that measure a few inches taller than standard 14” fixtures. For taller people, it may be more comfortable. Taller toilets also make a bathroom accessible to all users regardless of mobility, because they make sitting down and standing up easier.

Then there is the question of elongated or round bowl to consider. Most people find elongated toilet bowls to be more comfortable, but in a small bathroom, a round bowl can save you some space.

WHAT STYLE?

Two-piece toilets, with a separate tank and seat base, are the more common option. The pieces fit together, but they’ll always have a seam, which can be difficult for cleaning. They come in traditional or modern designs to fit any style. Two-piece toilets are also easier to transport and carry, especially if they need to go up or down a flight of stairs. A one-piece toilet, with an integral tank and bowl, can cost more, but these units are easier to clean because they have no seam. This seamless style provides you with a more modern look. Wall-mounted toilets add drama to a bathroom, and cleaning under them is a breeze. However, this higher-end fixture can be more expensive to install because it requires housing the tank and drainage within the wall. When it comes to style, don’t forget that there are many other options to consider. There is a variety of colors and design details that give a more modern or traditional look. We have plenty of options to find exactly what you are looking for.

FLUSHING TECHNOLOGY

Once you’ve settled on the size, shape and style, now find a toilet that flushes efficiently. You can have the perfect looking toilet, but if it doesn’t flush, what is it really good for.

Before 1994, typical toilets used 3.5 gallons of water per flush. Now in an effort to conserve resources, newly manufactured toilets could flush to 1.6 gallons per flush. These newer low flow toilets have come a long way in efficiency, but, as with any product, some toilets function better than others. To find a toilet with effective flushing technology, visit a Frisbees showroom and talk with a salesperson.

For homeowners interested in conserving even more water and reducing water bills, there is dual-flush technology. These units typically feature a split plunger style flush mechanism on top of the tank. Pushing one button releases .08 gallons of water and pushing both doubles the flow to 1.6 gallons. In the end it all comes down to budget and personal preference.
