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.
The flush of water in most toilets comes from 30 to 60 holes beneath the rim of the bowl. Often this area can build up with grunginess from waste and minerals left behind by the trickle of water. In new designs from Toto the multihole method is replaced with a Tornado flush which consists of two jets that spin the water at high speed to remove grime.
“They’re fantastic” Guy says of the new smart toilets. “We are not using as much water. Bidet seats are reducing the amount of paper use after you’ve gone number two. Low-flush toilets have caused nothing but issues with clogged sewer lines”. Toto’s Strang agrees. “The next step of toilet evolution is getting down to the lowest possible water consumption” he says. Most Toto toilets now flush with only 1 gallon vs. the national standard of 1.6 gallons per flush. “We’re phasing out all higher-flush toilets and moving down to the 1-gallon solution” he says. But water conservation isn’t the only hurdle toilet manufacturers face.
Innovation is constantly improving and expanding toilet design and functionality to use less water be more comfortable and yes even pamper us. “It’s starting to change — it really is” builder and designer Karl Champley says.
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.
