types of toiletsWhether you are in the middle of a bathroom renovation or your current toilet just isn’t cutting it anymore, it’s time to start researching what toilet you should install in your home. With several different makes and models, each toilet that is currently on the market will have different benefits. Depending on what your specific needs or concerns are, you’ll want to make sure that you are upgrading to the right kind of toilet for your home before going out and spending a couple hundred dollars.

One-Piece Toilets

As their name mentions, one-piece toilets are one entire piece and do not come apart. They are more expensive, but they have other amazing benefits, including extreme durability, easy to install, and very easy to clean. One-piece toilets flush and use the same amount of water as the traditional two-piece toilet, but one-piece toilets are great for smaller spaces as they are smaller and sit closer to the ground.

Two-Piece Toilets

Two-piece toilets are the most common type of toilet, especially in homes. Two-piece toilets are made up of two pieces: the tank and the bowl. This type of toilet is also more affordable as they are mass produced due to their popularity.

Wall Hung Toilets

Wall hung toilets offer a sleek design as the toilet is mounted on the outside of the wall and the tank hidden within. These types of toilet can be installed anywhere in the bathroom, as long as there is a water source close by, which makes them extremely versatile. Since wall hung toilets are so versatile and have a modern, sleek design, they do come with a higher price tag. They also require more maintenance due to the design and since the tank is hidden within the wall, require an experienced plumber when issues arise.

Smart Toilets

Smart toilets have come a very long way over the last few years and are becoming more popular in homes. Some of the intelligent upgrades that smart toilets feature include heated seats, automated flushers, and dual-flush systems. They are also becoming increasingly popular in commercial properties thanks to their efficiency and sanitation.
