Bathroom toilets can be categorized as antique toilets such as pull-chain high tank toilet or water closets and modern contemporary toilets such as ergo dynamic corner toilets and elongated toilet with large siphon outlets. While choosing a bathroom toilet seat, check whether it has a round or elongated front. Round front toilets are more compact, relatively cheaper and can fit into small spaces while elongated bowl model toilet seats have extended rim length and are comfortable to use. One-piece toilet looks sleek and is actually six to ten individual fixtures sculpted into a seamless use as a bathroom space saver idea.
They are available as hand crafted units too. They may not have
crevices between the tank and bowl, which is susceptible to collect dirt
and odors. You may also buy two piece toilets that look traditional and
have separate tank and bowel that can be bolted together upon
installation. Saving water should be a focus in today's bathroom
requirements, so pay close attention to toilet flushing systems. Average
efficient flush toilets use about 1.6 gallons of water per flush.
Gravity-fed flush toilets give good performance and are efficient at
disposing away the waste quietly. Pressure-assisted toilets use pressure
from the water supply in the home and are slightly louder. However,
there is no condensation on the outer tank to complain of.
Deep toilets with even surface and a rich coat of glaze are easy to
clean and smoothness of the internal trap way facilitates the flow of
waste and prevents clogging. High quality toilet seats are quite durable
and efficient too. Bathroom toilets come in various sizes with varying

today 1.6 gallons per flush is the mandatory standard. Check with your
local authorities to find the water efficiency standards set to conserve
water that you need to follow while installing your toilet seat.
Then, there are toilets that address specific needs such as toilets
that issue warm water followed by a flow of warm air. High tech toilet
seats today have a heating unit, a fan, an air purifier and a wand that
sprays warmed water. There are toilet seats that offer pre-warmed seats
for greater comfort. Some of them come with spot fans that pass the
toilet air through a filter so there bathroom is always rid of odors.
Bathroom toilets with their tanks and flushing mechanisms hidden inside
the wall look quite attractive. Elderly will love to use pre-heated
seats while the remote control device to control the spray proves handy
when you have to take care of an invalid or handicapped person.
You can find beautiful glossy colors in toilet seats but even better
are toilet seats with antibacterial glazing that kills common bacterial
types and inhibits growth of germs. The latest trend is for seats that
don't have flush lever or button. They flush automatically, when you
close the lid of the toilet seat, thus actually improving your bathroom
toilet manners. You may also opt for two levers instead of single flush
