One of the many things that I’ve learned in my time here with Clark + Aldine is that picking out the right toilet for your space is not as easy and straightforward as it seems. This is something you should take some time to do research on when working on an upgrade for your bathrooms. BUT that’s what C+A is here for! I’m going to walk you through the 4 main types of toilets and what each has to offer.
One-piece toilets are a style you’re going to see around quite often. They can be used in almost any space and you can find many different styles that can fit the vibe you’re looking for in your bathroom space. They tend to be very sleek and are generally very durable due to having fewer parts than other options. Cleaning is an ease with these, again due to less seams along the frame, which is also great because this reduces the chance of leaks greatly! Due to their minimal build they are also a great option for smaller bathrooms.
While the one-piece toilet is very popular, by far the most common you’re going to see is a two-piece toilet. These are generally a heavier toilet due to the multiple pieces which is something to consider when making changes and attempting to install. Cleaning these can be more of a task than the previously discussed one-piece, so think about what space this would be going into and the amount of use it may see. Even though it may seem like a lot of cons to a two-piece style, these toilets can be a great budget option! Due to how common they are in new and remodel construction, they tend to lean towards the more affordable fixtures in your bathroom and they are much easier to repair than a one-piece.
A wall mounted toilet can be such an amazing option if you are doing a remodel on a bathroom! Wall mounted toilets are very unique in the fact that they hide the tank inside of the wall that it sits on. It’s very different and not nearly as common as they should be! They are amazing for smaller spaces because of their design, so if you plan on opening up any walls and are trying to find creative ways to generate space, a wall mounted toilet is a perfect route to go. The only things to be aware of when committing to one of these, is the fact that they can be a pain to repair. With the tank hiding in the wall, any problems may result in a call to your local plumber.
The last toilet I want to talk about is the smart toilet. As time keeps marching on, you will see these pop up more and more in master bathrooms as they offer many different features. A big draw is of course the automation and touchless design that brings a little bit of extra sophistication to your dream bathroom. Many of these toilets offer heated seats and even self cleaners, so where clean-up may have been a concern with some of the previous options on this list, that would almost never be an issue here. This toilet is a GREAT option if you are looking to upgrade from an outdated master suite, to a beautiful modern and upgraded paradise!
These toilets are just a small fraction of what there is out there and they all have their pros and cons, but if you’re looking for an expanded list or even examples of spaces where these would fit best, LET US KNOW. All of us here at C+A are here for you guys to share our knowledge and passion with and would love your input! Something as easy as commenting on this post or giving us some feedback on our daily Instagram stories is something we ALL look forward to here!
