What are the important considerations for a comfort height toilet?

When choosing your comfort height toilet, there are a number of things to consider. These include:

  • The height of the toilet- while a standard toilet pan is about 15 inches high, on comfort height toilets, this 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 are less than 5 foot 8.
  • The style of the toilet- as with every fixture in your bathroom, the style of the comfort height toilet you choose should fit with the design scheme you have in mind. Comfort height toilets can be either contemporary or classic, to suit the style of your room. Contemporary comfort height toilets tend to use a button for flushing and often have a more square design. You can even opt for a comfort height toilet as part of the fitted bathroom furniture, which will also include a sink and storage units.
  • The installation location- when installing a comfort height toilet in your bathroom, you may need to move where this is positioned, due to the additional height, or to make your bathroom more accessible in general. Grab rails or handles may also need to be near to your comfort height toilet for additional support and safety.
