I loved the look and I’ve had “get black toilet seat” on my home to-do list for about seven years now (this is about the average amount of time something sits on my home to-do list). Slowly but surely the trend has gained momentum. While it started in bathrooms with the classic early-1900s look of black and white tile the trend has crept its way into bathrooms of all styles. Here’s a peek at white toilets wearing black lids in all sorts of chic bathrooms.
In the end though Garg and Singh conclude that “both methods were perhaps developed and have survived for centuries of usage because of the dietary fiber habits of these populations. Therefore both methods are scientifically correct and suit the populations where they are being used”. Nevertheless the top toilet manufacturers recognize the divide and note that places such as China and Japan are adopting smart toilets much more quickly than in the U.S. Walsh from American Standard says the rate of adoption is going up in America though it’s far from where it is in Japan.
For American Standard the future holds load-sensing technology that will sense what’s in the bowl and deliver the proper amount of water to flush. If the toilet is dirty it will do another flush or activate a cleaning routine. Devices that sense a clogged toilet could potentially alert a maintenance professional or shut off the water supply.
The black-seat white-toilet trend began in classic bathrooms like this one. The combo is commonly seen with black and white basket-weave tile floors subway and penny tiles and brass fixtures. It is becoming a popular choice for homes with Victorian and art deco style. Also the black seats and lids are usually wooden; this one is ebony-stained maple. And no you do not need to worry about splinters. Pedestal sinks and claw-foot tubs work well with a black and white toilet.
The other roadblock is outlets. Smart toilets need electricity and most bathrooms don’t come with an outlet near the toilet. “The single biggest angst that consumers have about smart toilets is ‘How am I going to plug this in?’” Strang says. Toto encourages builders and homeowners to put outlets near toilets when building a home or remodeling a home even if you’re not installing a smart toilet now. You or a future homebuyer might want to have a smart toilet someday. And the cost is relatively inexpensive if you’re already renovating.
