What are the considerations for choosing a traditional comfort height toilet?

If you need a comfort height toilet for a traditional bathroom, there are a number of things you should consider. These include:

  • A close coupled toilet- a close coupled toilet is a traditional style of toilet that has the cistern attached to the toilet bowl, creating one streamlined unit with both of the essential parts. This type of toilet also has a pedestal style base, and is not wall hung.
  • Toilet colour options- a full white toilet is one of the most common choices for any bathroom, and for a traditional bathroom this is no different. However, you can also opt for a timber effect toilet seat in dark or lighter wooden colours for a traditional, yet stylish result.
  • Flush options- while button flush systems are popular at the moment, these don’t really fit with a traditional them. instead you will need a flush handle in a traditional style, perhaps even with additional embellishments or details for style.
  • The height of the toilet- as always, with any comfort height toilet, you will need to make sure you choose the right height of toilet for your requirements. Comfort height tolets can range from 17 to 19 inches. Choosing the right height for you, your height, and your mobility is important. If you choose a toilet that is too low, you may still struggle to use this comfortably, and even a one inch difference can be a problem. At the same time, a toilet that is too high can also be uncomfortable to use, especially if you have a height of less than 5 foot 8.
