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 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.
Two-piece toilets consisting of a separate tank and seat base are the more common option. The pieces are made to fit together but they’ll always have some sort of seam which can become a trouble spot for cleaning. Two-piece toilets have the advantage of being easier to transport and carry which can be important for DIYers especially if the toilet needs to be carried up stairs.
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.
Toto’s Washlet toilet for example has a sensor that recognizes when you’re coming and sprays a quick spritz of water to the sides of the bowl to make it wet and improve lubricity. This isn’t guesswork. Toto spent time studying the tribology coefficient of friction which is a fancy way of saying the science of how surfaces interact and found that making the porcelain wet reduces stickiness so the toilet stays cleaner longer.
