How to Choose the Right Toto Toilet For Your Bathroom Remodel

Choosing a toilet may seem like a rather minor endeavor but when it comes to entire bathroom remodel, it is important to choose one that nicely complements the rest of your new bathroom. Not sure what type of Toto toilet is right for you? Here are a few considerations to keep in mind…
Bowl – Toilet bowls come in one of two shapes: round or elongated. Elongated bowls have an extended rim and round ones are a few inches shorter. Round bowls are ideal for small spaces while elongated bowls tend to be more comfortable.
Color – White may be the most popular color for toilets but rest assured, toilets come in a vast assortment of different colors. If you are looking for a less-common shade, contact your local Toto toilet authorized dealer to find out what colors they carry and whether or not they can order a toilet in the particular color you want.
Flush – Determine whether you want a gravity-fed or pressure-assisted flush. A gravity-fed toilet utilizes the force of gravity to pull waste through the trapway. On the contrary, a pressure-assisted toilet uses water from the tank to build up pressure and when flushed, the water pushes waste through the trapway. Pressure-assisted toilets tend to be noisier but can be more effective removing waste in a single flush. Both types of toilets only use 1.6 gallons of water per flush.
Pieces – Similar to flush type, toilets come in one of two styles: one- or two-pieces. A one piece toilet is a single piece, with the tank and bowl fused together while a two-piece has a separate tank and bowl. One-piece toilets don’t’ have any crevices or cracks, which offers easy cleaning and a sleek look. However, they are typically more expensive than two-piece toilets.
Quality – Look for Toto toilets that have a rich, glossy surface and a glazed trapway, which facilitates the flow of waste. Most Toto toilets come with a limited manufacturer’s warranty ensuring the quality of the toilet.
Size – Toilets come in varying sizes so make sure you measure the space in your new bathroom prior to making a purchase. Depending on the size, most toilets are bolted 10, 12, or 14 inches from the wall.
Style – Lastly, consider the type of style you want. Toto toilets offer a wide range of styles ranging from traditional two-piece toilets to more modern and contemporary models.
