Push-button toilets are popular for giving a room more of a modern spa feel even if the rest of the house is more or less traditional. Lever toilets are usually less expensive and the look is more classic so both options can make sense. Toilets with two flush option buttons reduce the amount of water used during the majority of flushes which over time can more than make up for the additional upfront cost.
Jean-Jacques L’Henaff vice president of design at American Standard continues to push for simpler surfaces that make the toilet easier to clean. Rather than the exposed trapways on traditional toilets (think of that tube-like protrusion below the bowl) newer models have smooth-surface skirts that leave fewer lines and seams and expressions to clean and also hide some of the working parts of the toilet. “We want you to see as little as possible” L’Henaff says.
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.
Other areas of focus are on products that help bedridden people and disabled children use the restroom. But if you want to think further into the future a big area of excitement is in biometrics. The idea is that sensors in the toilet could analyze urine and fecal matter and track your bodily changes to provide useful health information or warn you of any problems.
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.
