GAME OF THRONES…HOW DOES ONE CHOOSE?!

When choosing a toilet bowl and seat there are so many options. Here is a quick breakdown to help you choose what’s right for you! Your most common bowl shape is round front, it will feel a little smaller, good for short legs and children; round shape is also the most cost effective. Next you’ve got the elongated bowl, it has an oval shape to it and is suited to an adult body or someone with longer legs, this option will increase your price point slightly.

Once you’ve picked your bowl shape you can choose the seat. First you must make sure your seat matches your bowl shape, is it elongated or round? You can get a standard toilet seat, or choose to layer on the extras such as;

Slow Close-the lid slowly closes and doesn’t smack down onto the seat

Easy Clean-the whole seat pops on and off with ease to make cleaning a breeze. https://www.americanstandard.ca/bathroom/toilet-seats-bidet-seats/slow-close-easy-lift-and-clean-elongated-toilet-seat-44818

Kids Seat- this has a little seat that flips down on top of the regular seat, ideal for little bums just learning to use the toilet. https://www.bemisseats.com/spec-sheets/40-1483slow/file

TOILET TRAPS

When it comes to choosing your toilet you’ll be looking at three basic options for the base of your toilet, also known as the trap.

Firstly you have your standard toilet. You’ll notice the trap is visible, snaking below the toilet, leaving extra crevices to collect dust and debris. The American Standard Colony is our budget friendly toilet and comes with a standard trap. https://www.americanstandard.ca/bathroom/toilets/colony-elongated-12-inch-rough-in-16-gpf-toilet-45661

Secondly, you have your concealed trap toilet. You’ll notice the base of the toilet is sleek and flush to the floor creating an easy to clean surface. The American Standard Studio is by far our most popular toilet, has a concealed trap and only a slight upgrade https://www.americanstandard.ca/bathroom/toilets/studio-concealed-trapway-right-height-flowise-elongated-toilet-with-seat-49639

Lastly, is one of my favorites and of course the most costly; a wall hung toilet. You’ll notice in the picture the trap does not touch the ground, leaving the surface below open and easy to clean. https://www.totousa.com/neorest-500h-dual-flush-toilet-10-gpf-and-08-gpf-1
