Is there really much to sense about other than looks when selecting a toilet for a bathroom refashion? Surprisingly, yes. When it comes to choosing a commode, size, height and how well it functions should play into your resolution.


There are thousands of toilets on the market, but a rough-in distance, which process the distance from the ended wall to the centre of the sewer drain for the toilet, will narrow the field.

Comfort also comes into play with toilet heights. Many manufacturers now offer toilets that measure a few inches taller than standard 14" fixtures. For taller people, it's more relaxing. Taller toilets are also an integral part of universal design, which makes a bathroom accessible to all users in spite of mobility, because they make sitting down and standing up easier.
