Published at Saturday, 05 May 2018. Toilet Seat. By Kornelia Nicole.
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.
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.
Clean white porcelain is by far the most common toilet choice. However most manufacturers offer a range of colors in at least some of their products. Typically pure white is the best bet for resale value as it will never go out of style. However it should be noted that “plain white” porcelain fixtures from different companies might not match one another. If your toilet sits next to a tub or porcelain-topped vanity it might be best to source the items from the same company or request a sample of one finish to compare with another when you’re out shopping. Noticeably different tones can look mismatched which can make a bathroom appear older or subtly messy.
