In the near future the biggest change you’ll see is cost. “I do think you will see price points continue to drop” Allis says. “Similar to any other technology or innovative product that starts to get broader acceptance and appeal. Think about flat-screen TVs and how we’ve seen those drop in price until the next technology comes out”.
When smart toilets with these features originally came out plumber Dave Guy and his co-workers thought they were the “silliest things in the world” he says. Then a toilet company gave him one for free and encouraged him to try it out in his own home which he did. Now he has three. “They’re definitely a benefit in more ways than one” he says. “Music and heat they’re a little overkill though”.
With in-wall toilets the tank is not visible because it’s installed inside the wall. These toilets definitely require more of an investment than standard options especially since they tend to require more construction effort but the clean profile is popular for achieving a luxe look. I can say from personal experience that sometimes you can’t know whether an in-wall toilet is an option until the wall has been opened to reveal the plumbing arrangement so keep this in mind before plunging into a retrofit as you may have to adapt your plans accordingly.
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.
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.
