Sometimes, you need to reflect on the right kind of toilet for your bathroom. Now that you’re planning to renovate your small refuge, you must think hard on what kind of toilet you will sit in it. Is it something you have been used to since you were a kid? Or is it a toilet that you want to serve as a conversation starter? Choosing the right toilet should not be that difficult. Here are some tips on how to choose the right toilet for your bathroom:
• Think of the style. Several types of toilets are available on the market. One-piece toilets have the bowl and the tank built into each other. They have no seams, so they are much easier to clean. Two-piece toilets have tank bolts on the bowl. They usually cost less. Wall-mounted toilets enable you to clean under hem easily. They also add drama to the bathroom. Before you think about what type of toilet and toilet seat you want, think about what should be done when maintenance of the toilet is required.
• Consider the technology for flushing. Old models of toilets use about 3.5 gallons of water per flush. Newer toilets use only 1.6 gallons of water, to save more water. To be more environment friendly, opt for toilets that are assisted by power or gravity when it comes to flushing. There are also toilets with dual flushing technology. The toilet has a split plunger flush over the tank. When you push one of the two buttons, 0.08 gallons of water is released. When you push both, you double the amount of water used in flushing.
• A toilet with a bidet. This is an addition for personal hygiene. It also helps people who have mobility problems. A disabled person in a wheelchair uses the bidet if he or she cannot manage to go to the shower, standing up.
