How to Choose a Toilet for Your Bathroom

Toilets are used daily, but do you know how to choose a toilet for your bathroom? The toilet is often an overlooked aspect of a bathroom construction or renovation. It’s also very much taken for granted given the frequency it is used in every home! However, your toilet style is an important part of your bathroom that you should consider carefully. 

Not all toilets are created equal, and if you want something that will last you for years and look good doing so, keep reading for our tips on how to choose a new toilet for your bathroom.

What You Need to Consider Before Buying a Toilet

Before you simply select the cheapest toilet on the market, consider the following.

What does your current plumbing look like? 

Certain toilets have other plumbing needs so consider choosing one that will work with what you already have in place.

How big is your bathroom where the toilet will be installed? 

You don’t want to end up with a cramped bathroom because you chose the wrong toilet sizes.

Consider choosing a quality brand

Other than your standard, cheap toilets, they often include after-sales support and warranties. It might also save you money in the long run because it can last you for years. 

Water-saving features

If you want to cut down on your monthly bills, consider opting for a water-efficient toilet. They can flush with 1.28 gallons or less per flush compared to the 1.6 gallons that standard toilets use. Dual flush options will also help you cut down on water usage by giving you a lighter flush option. The flushing system should not be overlooked.

Types of toilet bowl

In order to make seating comfortable for those who will use it, consider the height of the toilet bowl types you look at. You also get around or elongated bowl, so decide which one is more comfortable for you.

Shut-off valve

For different toilets, there are different toilet flush valve types. Take a look at your current system to ensure you don’t need different pipe connects. 

Water lines

Go for flexible stainless instead as opposed to stiff chrome-plated copper water lines.

Flush volume

If you don’t want everyone waking up when you go for your midnight bathroom trip, you might want to consider something with a whisper quiet flush. If your bathroom is also located close to a common area like the living room, this is also something to consider.

Toilet colour

Do you prefer something cream or pure white? You might want to consider the rest of your bathroom to ensure your toilet does not stick out like a sore thumb in your bathroom. 

Toilet sizes dimensions

Toilet sizes standard offerings are generally 28-30’’ deep, 20’’ wide, and 27-32’’ high. Toilet sizes in Australia require you to have at least 750mm width and 1200-1500mm length to give you enough space to comfortably sit on it. Toilet waste pipes are generally 100mm in diameter. 

Different Toilet Types: Which Toilets Suit Your Needs?

When it comes to filtering through the types of toilet systems to choose the kind of toilet you want, consider all the different models.

Link or Connector Toilets

These toilets are your most common, standard models, which makes sense as they are the cheapest and easiest to install.

Close Coupled Toilets 

With this model, there is no space between the cistern and toilet pan. It looks a bit better than the link or connector toilets, but you will still have to clean the trap pipeware.

Back to Wall Toilets 

Same as the above close coupled toilet, but these also sit flush against the wall, so you don’t have to clean the back of this model.

In-Wall Cistern Toilets

This model is ideal for smaller bathrooms as it does not take up as much space as the most modern-looking toilet. The cistern part of the toilet is concealed in the wall or a cabin. This model can either be floor-mounted or wall hung toilet.

Other Aspects to Consider

Do You Want a Rimless Toilet? They’re Easier to Clean

A new design, the rimless toilet is considered more hygienic as it’s easy to clean. This means fewer chemicals down the drain, and some even prefer the look of the rimless design. 

How Important is Water Efficiency in Toilets?

You will notice that every toilet will have a WELS star rating to indicate its water efficiency. The star rating refers to the gallons per full flush used. Using this, you can see at a glance which toilet model will be more water-efficient for you. 

If you are renovating or building, you have to check that you adhere to the minimum star rating, which is currently set as three stars for renovation and four for new buildings. 

In a nutshell, the higher the star rating is, the more money you will save on your monthly water bill. So, choose wisely and reap the benefits in the long run!

What Toilet Seat Do You Want?

Once again, do you always wake up from someone slamming the toilet seat in the middle of the night? You get lids that close softly so consider going for this if you’re experiencing this issue. It also generally means that your toilet seat will last longer and the wear and tear is less extreme. 

Do You Want to Add Smart Tech to Your Toilet?

Smart toilets and bidets are all the rage these days. Sometimes, it does not require an entirely new model and you can simply add on features such as toilet seat heating, LED lights, and different types of toilet flush systems.

Choosing a Quality Toilet Brand

When it comes to choosing your porcelain throne, you want to ensure that it’s comfortable, won’t give you any hassles, and will last you for years to come. It helps if it’s not bad to look at either, bringing a modern, aesthetically pleasing design to your bathroom. Take a look at our quality toilet range to help make your decision easier.
