How to Choose the Right Toilet for Your Home

September 26, 2018

Toilets are a pretty important component in every bathroom. Most of the time, it’s the reason why we go into the bathroom in the first place. As you think about your next bathroom remodeling project, consider which kind of toilet are you going to invest in.

Let’s take a look at some questions you can ask yourself to help you choose the right toilet for your home.

How to Choose the Right Toilet for Your Home

Should Your Toilet Help You Save Water?

Certain types of toilets can help you keep your water bill under control. As far as most American households go, about 30% of water usage is dedicated to flushing the toilet. Older toilets can use between 5-7 gallons of water per flush according to Water Footprint Calculator. So whether you’re trying to save money or save the environment, opt for a new water-efficient toilet.

What Should Your Toilet Look Like?

Design is one of the most important part of the bathroom remodeling process. As you think about your new toilet, spare a thought for how it looks. Most people buy white toilets—and that may be the right fit for you. However, you should know the options are more varied than you might think.

Think of the color palette in your new bathroom and imagine where your toilet can fit into that. Rather than just writing it off as a white fixture, think of ways your toilet can enhance your bathroom with a splash of color or a unique look.

Do You Plan on Aging in Place?

Aging in place is the term used when older people age in their own homes as opposed to going somewhere else. Part of the process of aging in place is making sure fixtures and rooms in your home are accessible to a future version of you who may be unable to navigate your current circumstances.

Here at Bath Doctor, we offer a variety of options for those aging in place. One of the most common bathroom features is a high comfort toilet. These toilets are taller than average, 17 inches tall to be exact. Which is about the height of a standard dining room chair. These toilets are a lot easier for the elderly to use, and if you planning on aging in place, they are well-worth the investment.
