How Your Toilet Impacts Your Bathroom And What You Should Know

by Editor on June 1, 2013


Whether you’re currently in the need of replacing your current toilet or you’re in the middle of remodeling your bathroom, selecting the right toilet can be somewhat confusing if you’re not sure of what features you are looking for. Years ago the various features and selections weren’t available to the consumer.

However today there are so many options and styles to consider when shopping for a toilet. Of course, you might be thinking, “How hard can it be, a toilet is a toilet,” but the truth is that there are a lot of things to consider before you buy one. Here are some things that could actually impact the overall look and style of your bathroom.

The Color

When most people think of a toilet they think of a standard white toilet. Some are unaware that toilets come in various colors. This is a great benefit as you are now able to purchase a toilet in a color that will compliment your entire bathroom style. Depending on the brand you buy,

even the shades of white vary. However, the toilet colors aren’t too bold to stand out, but have just enough color to add that extra touch to your bathroom’s style and feel. As for cost, generally the white color is standard and least costly as opposed to the colored ones, which can be costlier.

The Style

Toilets come in a variety of styles. The style is the first thing that should be heavily considered prior to your decision. However, if you are looking for a unique toilet, expand from just home improvement stores and go online. At home improvement stores you will only find basic and standard style toilets.

You can find a number of toilets that many people haven’t even seen, however the style may be just exactly what your bathroom is missing. Consider your options when looking for a one piece toilet or a two piece toilet.

Shapes and Sizes

Toilets come in all shapes and sizes. The style will ultimately be determined by the overall style of your bathroom. You may be surprised by all the various styles and shapes that toilets come in. Some are square, round, oval shaped or short and long.


Of course you don’t want to leave out the overall functionality of the toilet. Things such as the power of the flush, energy savings options and how many gallons of water are used up per flush are also important considerations when buying a toilet.

Toilet Seat

Most toilets don’t include a toilet seat but the manufacturers usually suggest a matching one, or you have the option of selecting your own. Seats come in many types of material including cushioning for more comfort.

The Full Set

The great thing about a toilet is that you will probably not find yourself buying one on an individual basis. It is far more likely to be a purchase within a full bathroom suite, which will ensure you get the perfect product to complement the rest of your bathroom.
