Your Guide to the Perfect Toilet Height

Your toilet is the most important seat in your house, so installing one at the most comfortable height will have an impact on your bathroom experience.

And, while many toilets available today are marketed as comfort height, not everyone might find them comfortable.

Visible vs Concealed vs Skirted Trap Toilet

The majority of American homes feature toilets with visible traps, meaning the base of their bowl was molded with the outline of the trapway visible. A toilet with a concealed trapway has a smooth surface where the trapway would normally appear, and skirted toilets are designed with smooth sides from front to back. Most people probably don't give the design of their toilet base much thought, but because toilets are an integral part of your overall bathroom design, you might want to take a moment to consider its appearance among other points.

Should You Install a Bidet or a Cleansing Seat?

Reading time: 4 minutes

You've decided to take the plunge and embrace a more international way of life by incorporating a bidet into your bathroom, and you're not sure if you need a separate fixture or a seat you can affix to your existing toilet. Both bidets and cleansing seats (often referred to as a washlet) are generally more sanitary than the use of toilet paper in the bathroom because you're using water and air for cleaning and drying instead of tissue paper, greatly reducing the potential of spreading germs.
