Choosing the right toilet height for seniors

Bathroom design can become increasingly important as you age, and seniors will have different requirements than young families. One of the important factors to consider is the height of the toilet. But why is this important? And what do you need to know about choosing the right toilet height for seniors?

Choosing the right toilet height for seniors

For seniors, bending and stooping to use the toilet can be challenging, especially when mobility issues and pain is taken into account. For this reason, a raised toilet can provide an effective and comfortable solution. The most widely accepted toilet height for seniors is somewhere between 17 and 19 inches, which is actually much higher than the standard 15 inch toilet. These extra 2 to 4 inches can be essential for comfort and independent living, and toilets that provide this height are actually known as comfort height toilets, for that particular reason.

What do you need to know about comfort height toilets?

Comfort height toilets can be highly effective for seniors, people with mobility issues, and even for tall people who find regular toilets uncomfortable. These toilets are:

  • Available in a range of styles and designs- from contemporary style, back to wall toilets, to more traditional close coupled toilets, comfort height toilets are available in any style or design to complement any bathroom. This includes corner toilets and slimline toilets for smaller spaces like cloakrooms and ensuite bathrooms.
  • Comfort height toilets aren’t for everyone- if your bathroom is a shared space and children or shorter adults will be using the bathroom regularly, they may not find the comfort height toilet is very comfortable, because of the increased toilet height.

Here at Homematas we offer a wide range of comfort height toilets that can be a stunning addition to any contemporary bathroom, including those from the VitrA Integra range. Why not take a look today, to see what we have in store?
