I can proudly say that I am quite pleased with the new toilets that have been installed in my bathroom and I am so glad that we went with the design we did in the end. It certainly elevates the overall look and feel of the room and I think that all of the time we took investing it was worth it. I was also pleased that friends and family members came by and let me know that they were quite pleased with our aesthetics. In the future, I will have more confidence in my skills as a DIYer. I also believe that more people should consider it as it was not as difficult as I imagined it would be. In fact, the entire process was a bit fun in the end and I learned a lot.
Since we had not gone through a project like this at our home ever before, we had to turn to a few friends that were able to help guide us through the process. I understand now that selecting the best toilet for your bathroom can be a bigger issue for those people that are not used to making these decisions. And before you get started, I would advise anyone to brush up on the basics to plumbing so that you won’t encounter any surprises that may end up costing you an arm and a leg. Changing a toilet may seem like a job that is utterly thankless, but at the end of the day, your life will much easier since you will have the satisfaction of knowing it was installed by you. Here are the basics to selecting new toilets.
Selecting the right Height for Your toilet
They come in more than one height unbeknownst to some people and if you are shorter or taller than the average person, this should be taken into consideration. For the most part, the majority of toilets will work for most households.
Dual-Flush vs. Other Toilet Models
There are more types of toilets on the market these days and that means you can purchase a toilet that uses even less water than ever before. If you are replacing an older toilet, you should consider buying a new dual-flush option that will save you money long-term. They may cost more in the beginning, but from the reviews I have gone over, they are able to cover their costs in less than a year. I have had several friends suggest them to us and I feel like they are the best option for most homes these days.
One-Piece Toilet vs. Two-Piece toilet
This is another option that must be considered and it really comes down to your personal preference. One-piece toilets compared to two-piece toilets are much easier to clean, but they both have a sleek profile and this is why it all comes down to aesthetics for many people. I think that most people are fine either way, but I suggest checking out a few before you decide on the right one for your household.
