Styles of Bathroom Toilets
October 22, 2009
Whether you're renovating your bathroom or building a bathroom for the first time, you're going to find that there are many styles of toilets available today. Gone are the days where we have one style of toilet bowl to choose from! If you think a toilet is just a toilet, are you in for a surprise!
Brands of toilets
In your search for the best and most economical toilet, you'll find there are many different brands of bathroom toilets as well. The brands that are the most well known and offer the most popular styles are Toto, Kohler, American Standard, Gerber and Elijer. If you're rebuilding a completely new bathroom, you may want to purchase your toilet, sink and tub from the same manufacturer or supplier.
This is not necessary, but will help you to stay within the same style. For instance, if you already have a modern bathtub, you won't want to purchase a Victorian style toilet. Although there are many brands of toilets, you'll want to look at not only the most economical but also the most durable. You don't want to have to replace your toilet every couple of years.
Things to Look for When Purchasing Toilets
Although you may like the appearance and feel of a large toilet, it won't be very comfortable in a small bathroom so keep your bathroom size in mind when purchasing your toilet. Although most newer toilets are energy efficient, look for models that are the most eco-friendly, particularly if you have a large family and the toilet will be used a lot.
Price is not always the most important fact when purchasing a toilet. You may not spend a lot of time on the toilet but comfort will still be a small factor. Look for something that looks comfortable, attractive, fits the size of your bathroom and fits your budget.
