If you haven’t purchased a new toilet for a while, you might be a little overwhelmed by the number of choices you have. To make this easier on you, we have compiled a few simple tips that will help you find the perfect model for your home:
Begin Your Search with Reviews
Given the slew of available choices, you should begin your search by checking out various reviews of different brands and specific models. A great resource is the Consumer Reports website, but you should also take a look at Amazon reviews and various home improvement or retail websites.
Don’t Pinch Pennies
Many homeowners hunt down the cheapest model they can find, but you may regret this in the long run. Although it may not seem as important as your home’s furnace or air conditioner, a new toilet is likely to last for up to a decade or longer, so it won’t hurt to spend a little more money for better quality.
Consider a High-Efficiency Model
If you want to maximize your water and money savings, selecting a high-efficiency toilet is definitely the decision you’ll want to make. These models will cost you more than other types, but you’ll enjoy savings for years to come that will more than justify the initial higher price.
Improve Your Comfort
When it comes to being more conformable on the toilet, nothing beats the choice of a taller model. Not only do they look more elegant, those with long legs or ones who experience trouble sitting and standing will feel much better.
Select a Wall-Hung Model
There’s a good chance that you don’t even know these exist. A wall-hung unit will not only get tons of notice by every guest in your home, they’re much easier to clean that standard units thanks to fewer crevices and whatnot.
