When it's time to throw in the towel and replace your toilet, choosing the right model for your household is essential. You could find an identical model, but you may wish to explore your options and invest in a modern toilet that will be more efficient for your water bill and possibly include some luxury touches.
Below are a few tips to help you choose the perfect toilet for your next replacement.
Look For Savings First
The best toilet model is one that practically pays for itself (such as a low-flow model)! New industry standards require all toilets to use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush, though, so if you haven't replaced your toilet in a long time, chances are you may experience significant savings just by buying a newer model.
You may also want to consider a dual-flush toilet. Popular throughout Europe, these toilets feature full and partial flushes that use less water and save money.
Consider The Features
Do you want a toilet seat that is always warm? How about a self-cleaning toilet? There are plenty of toilets to choose from, and many contemporary models feature plenty of features such as including an air drying system, deodorization, anti-microbial technology, and even power outage protection.
Find the Right Style for Your Bathroom
Different toilet models will have an impact on the overall look of your bathroom. While most people probably won't pay close attention to your toilet design, a wall-mounted, one-piece, or two-piece toilet can have a transformative, space-saving impact on your bathroom.
