In this brief article, I want to go over a few key points about toilets to help you make the right selection as you venture out in search of one for your new or soon-to-be-renovated bathroom. It is important to find the right toilet to match both your physical requirements and your interior décor. You may be a bit surprised to find that there are as many different options as we will discuss here. I suggest grabbing a piece of paper and pen or opening up a notetaking program to jot down your preferences as we go. By the time we are finished, you should have a list of your needs and desires, which you can easily compare against the actual toilets we have featured on our Toilet Reviews page.
Round or Elongated?
Your choice between a round toilet and an elongated toilet will likely depend upon two things – overall body size and the amount of available space in your bathroom. Generally speaking, round toilets are much smaller than elongated toilets. Unfortunately, most households consist of people of varying shapes and sizes, making it rather difficult to select between the two.
