Before You Buy a Toilet, Make Sure It Suits Your Style!

The toilet is essential to the bathroom. Even powder rooms are typically equipped with a toilet, even if the only other major furniture accessory in the room is a small basin to properly wash your hands. Even though you need one, however, you don’t have to be limited by style. You’ll find toilets online at House of Home that will make you think differently about this often-used, little-discussed piece of equipment!

A Guide to Buying a Toilet Online

Is this your first time buying a toilet online? It can seem overwhelming at first, until you take apart the process piece by piece:

  • Measure the area you can devote to a toilet. This will narrow your choices, because some models are much more suitable for small spaces than are others. On the other hand, if you have a large master bathroom, the size of the toilet’s footprint may be less of an issue. Still, it’s a good idea to know at least a rough estimate of how much room you can devote to your new toilet.

  • Decide what colour toilet you’d prefer. While most homeowners opt for very traditional white toilets, you aren’t limited to white. Toilets come in other colours, such as black and off-white/cream. Which colour will work best with your current or expected bathroom décor?

  • Determine which style of toilet works with your bathroom. On our carefully curated marketplace, you’ll find close coupled, wall faced, connector, linked and wall hung. Close coupled and linked toilets are the traditional type of toilet in which the bowl and tank seem to be fused together, making the toilet look like one large piece. Connector toilets have what looks like a “gap” between the bowl and tank, which adds a vintage feel. Wall hung and wall faced toilets are the most contemporary, creative toilet styles. In fact, some wall faced and wall hung toilets look as much like sculptures as they do toilets!

  • Consider the WELS rating. The WELS rating, which measures water usage efficiency, goes up to six stars. Some people who buy a toilet online are very concerned about investing in a toilet with the highest WELS rating. Please note that a WELS rating is not required and will not be available for every toilet on sale.
