You May Want To Go With A Different Type Of Toilet When You Remodel

If you are going to be remodeling your bathroom then you have a lot of decisions ahead of you. Along with choosing the right sink, bathtub, flooring and paint, you will also want to make sure you choose a toilet that's going to help you get the bathroom you want. This article will offer you a comparison of different types of toilets so you can choose the right one.

Smaller VS larger toilets

While you want a toilet that fits nicely in your bathroom, you also want to make sure it's the right size for your needs. If you are able to make due with a smaller toilet, then your decision will be easy and you can go with a toilet with a small bowl.

There are some times when you would really do better with a larger toilet, such as when you are overweight, or you have some mobility issues with your hand or wrist that make it harder for you to wipe. In these cases toilets with elongated seats should be chosen. The few inches this toilet takes up in the bathroom will be worth it for your comfort.

Taller toilets

Toilets of regular height are generally fine for people of a relatively normal height who don't have problems with their mobility. However, if you are of a taller stature or you have problems sitting down that low then a taller toilet will be a good choice. These taller toilets are often referred to as comfort height toilets and while they may only add a few inches, that few inches can really make a difference.

Toilet/bidet combinations

Having a toilet/bidet combination installed in your bathroom will take up no more room than a regular toilet and it offers you plenty of added features. A bidet will help with your personal hygiene and can bring relief to certain conditions, such as anal fissures and hemorrhoids. They also give you features such as heated water, heated seats and easy to move water flow so you can control where it goes.

Now that you know the benefits some of the other types of toilets can offer, you will have an easier time determining whether or not you should have a different type installed in your bathroom. Once you decide on which toilet is right for you, a plumber will be able to come out and install it in your bathroom for you. So look into plumbing in your area.
