“They’re fantastic” Guy says of the new smart toilets. “We are not using as much water. Bidet seats are reducing the amount of paper use after you’ve gone number two. Low-flush toilets have caused nothing but issues with clogged sewer lines”. Toto’s Strang agrees. “The next step of toilet evolution is getting down to the lowest possible water consumption” he says. Most Toto toilets now flush with only 1 gallon vs. the national standard of 1.6 gallons per flush. “We’re phasing out all higher-flush toilets and moving down to the 1-gallon solution” he says. But water conservation isn’t the only hurdle toilet manufacturers face.
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.
The more integrated and seamless the base the easier the surface will be to wipe down and the more modern the look will be. A simple shape like this softly rounded toilet will work in ultramodern or more lively contemporary bathrooms without drawing attention so if you can spend a little more this can be a nice upgrade.
