Two-piece toilets consisting of a separate tank and seat base are the more common option. The pieces are made to fit together but they’ll always have some sort of seam which can become a trouble spot for cleaning. Two-piece toilets have the advantage of being easier to transport and carry which can be important for DIYers especially if the toilet needs to be carried up stairs.
Taking the two-piece look to the extreme retro chain-pull toilets with tanks set higher on the wall give a certain old-world charm to a room. A well-made high-tank toilet will function just as well as a “close-coupled” (standard) option so the choice comes down to look more than mechanics in most situations although these toilets can be a little more expensive. If you want your toilet to be noticeable and charming instead of minimalist and hidden away this is an option to consider.
Historically this two-sided development has a lot to do with the amount of fiber people consume (less in the U.S. and the U.K.) weather culture religion and more. And there are pros and cons to each side. One common argument is that bidets waste more water than toilet paper. But many experts say that the amount of water it takes to make toilet paper exceeds that used by bidets.
Add-on units are even more affordable. Tushy’s bidet attachment shown here which affixes to any standard American toilet in less than 10 minutes costs $69. No plumbing or electrical are required. For a little more money you can get a Tushy that allows you to attach a hose to the hot water beneath your sink and have a warm-water bidet. It’s great for rental units in which you’re not allowed to make upgrades. There’s no air dryer so you still need to use a little toilet paper.
Although the humble toilet isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of a visually stunning bathroom it’s still an important element with just as many varieties to choose from as other plumbing fixtures. Choosing well the first time (and resisting the temptation to cut corners) will avoid regrets and possibly more expense down the road. Read on for a handy breakdown of key features you should consider before settling on the right fixture for you.
