Rarely is it practical to move a toilet if you aren’t designing your bathroom from scratch (i.e. during a new build). If possible keep in mind that a toilet should be a minimum of 15 inches from nearby objects (such as showers walls and vanities) measured from the centerline of the toilet. For more comfort 18 or more inches is recommended. If you can’t relocate try to avoid adding obstacles such as towel bars and consider using a small vanity. Also an elongated toilet seat (longer and narrower than a standard rounded seat) may give you a little extra leg room.
The standard height for a toilet seat is 17 inches one inch lower than the standard height for a chair seat. However most manufacturers also produce at least some of their models in a “comfort” height which is typically 19 inches. From a medical perspective lower toilet seats are recommended for typical users. However for those who have trouble getting into and out of a sitting position (such as the elderly or even simply the very tall) the comfort-height seat may be easier to use. If you don’t find standard toilets to be an issue ignore the comfort option and worry more about the distance your toilet sits from the wall.
For some American Standard models surface technology is fired directly into the chinaware to help resist dirt buildup and make the toilet easier to clean. The company also has cleaning systems built into toilets such as the ActiClean. A button independent of the flush releases a cleaning solution into the tank. “These are innovations to make a consumer’s life easier” Walsh says. “Nobody wants to worry about a dirty toilet”.
While you see a lot more black toilets on the market you’ll continue to see the classic white color reign supreme especially since the high-tech toilets feel more at home in modern spaces where white is the predominant color. Also the sterile look of white makes sense for something like a toilet Champley says.
As mentioned earlier infrastructure support helps proliferate the technology. Walsh says most new construction in Japan includes outlets near the toilet location which makes installing a high-tech toilet easier. Plus in Japan many units are small and have only one bathroom. So splurging on a high-end toilet often makes more financial sense than in America where homes have multiple toilets.
