Toilets are a necessary part of every bathroom, but that doesn't mean they can’t be stylish! One-piece toilets are manufactured with the bowl and the tank as one unit, giving the toilet a sleek, modern look. Most traditional toilets are two-piece, meaning that the bowl and tank are built separately and can be purchased together or individually. Toilet bowls typically come in two different shapes: elongated or round, and elongated bowls usually take up more space than round ones. Make sure your toilet comes with a toilet seat; if it doesn't, you will have to purchase one that matches the shape of the bowl. If water efficiency is important, consider getting a low flow or duel flush toilet for your bathroom. Most standard toilets use 1.6 gallons of water per minute, while high efficiency toilets can flush 1.28 gallons per minute. The right toilet can add considerable comfort and style to your bathroom, at a price that won’t be flushing your money away.
