What to Consider Before Purchasing a Toilet


One of the first things you should consider before purchasing a toilet is the style you want. There are two-piece toilets, one-piece toilets, high-tank toilets, in-wall toilets, and integrated-base toilets.

Two-piece toilets are the most common and the most affordable. Also, one can easily carry one of these toilets up a flight of stairs.

One-piece toilets are more modern looking, and these are ideal because they’re easy to clean. They’re also pretty sturdy, which means they’re comfortable as well.

A high-tank toilet will have its tank mounted to the wall, and often these tanks are high above the rest of the toilet. These are ideal for retro decors.

In-wall toilets are ideal for those who like sleekness and minimalism. The toilet is tankless, in that the bulky components are hidden behind the wall.

Then there are integrated-base toilets, and these are ideal for those who like an easy-to-clean toilet and a smooth, rounded look. These look excellent in modern bathrooms.

Flushing Mechanism

Once you're sure on a style, you’ll need to select a flushing mechanism. If you're looking to install a pressure-assisted flushing mechanism, you'll need adequate space within the wall for this. These mechanisms make toilets more powerful.

Seat Height

Seat height is another important factor to consider. Most toilets are 17 inches high. You could, however, get a 19-inch toilet if you want something more comfortable. If you have trouble getting on or off a traditional toilet, installing a 19-inch toilet seat may help. Just consider nearby fixtures and ceiling height before purchasing one of these taller toilets.


To maximize comfort, you should ensure the toilet is 15 inches from any other bathroom fixtures and walls. There's no need to have more than 18 inches of space.

Buttons & Levers

You'll also need to decide whether you want a traditional lever toilet or a push-button toilet. A lot of new toilets have two buttons, one that does a full flush and another that does a water-conserving flush. If you don’t like to waste water, purchase a double-button toilet.
