Perhaps one of the most under appreciated parts of the bathroom, the toilet is the most-often used essential piece of functionality in even the quaintest of bathrooms. All the same, you don’t want to have a hideous toilet in your bathroom, especially if you’re remodeling. When choosing Toilets In Gaithersburg, it’s important to analyze the different factors of toilets you will want and need. Finding the right amount of function and visual appeal isn’t as hard as it sounds.

Toilet Size

Toilets come in different sizes in both the model itself as well as the bowl. The choice of toilet body will often strongly vary in height, length, and width. It’s important to measure the available area to ensure that you are picking a model that will fit comfortably in your bathroom. Toilet bowls can also vary in size based on the style: elongated or round. The round model is more compact and suited to smaller spaces, whereas the elongated bowl tends to be more comfortable.

Flush System

      *      Gravity: toilet relies on the weight of the water to effectively force flush.

      *     Pressure Assisted: include air compression within the tank to add more force to the flush, resulting in a stronger flush.

Most toilets are equipped with the gravity flushing system, but the pressure-assisted flush has been gaining popularity. The downside is they can be very noisy and costly to repair.

One Piece or Two Piece

Two piece toilets are what you will see in most homes, the cheaper of the two options. The bowl and the tank are separate but are connected upon installation. A one piece toilet is seamlessly connected from bowl to tank and are very smooth in physical appearance. More expensive, these are considered the better option because they are easier to clean and much more compact.

Additional Options

If you want luxury, some high end Toilets In Gaithersburg may come with additional features such as heated seats, built in bidets, and air-drying systems.

The toilet is certainly not going to be the show piece of your home that you introduce to guests, but that doesn’t mean it cannot be visually appealing as well as an effectively functional part of your home.
