Choosing the Right Toilet For Your Home
Forget the head of the table or Dad’s most comfortable easy chair, at Weinstein Bath & Kitchen Showroom; we believe the toilet is the most important seat in the house. Armed with this belief, we want to make sure you find the toilet that best suits the needs of you and your family. There are so many options that finding the right toilet may seem daunting but the professionals at Weinstein Bath & Kitchen Showroom are here to help.
Two Piece Toilet
Two piece toilets are the most common residential toilet. Two piece toilets are composed of the upper piece, or tank, which is mounted on the lower piece, or bowl. They are usually the most cost effective and are the easiest to maintain or repair.
One Piece Toilet
One piece toilets feature both the bowl and tank in one molded piece. They provide a sleek look, are easier to clean and usually a lower profile.
Wall Hung Toilet
Wall hung feature a bowl mounted on the wall and a tank concealed behind the wall. They offer maximum space saving – up to 12” and allow for easy cleaning under the bowl. Wall hung toilets also have a flexible installation height.
Kohler Intelligent Toilet
Kohler Intelligent Toilets offer the ultimate bathroom experience. They offer seamless integration with cutting edge technology, integrated cleansing, customizable presets, automatic seat lifting and flush among other design features.
Choose Your Options
Not all toilets have all of the following options available, but with the sales consultants at Weinstein Bath & Kitchen Showroom specialize in helping you choose the right options in order to achieve your ideal design and functionality.
Round bowl toilets are smaller in size and are perfect for compact spaces such as powder rooms.
Elongated bowl toilets are “egg shaped” and can extend an additional 2 or 3 inches from the wall. The oval shape of these bowls provide extra comfort and ease of use.
Gravity flushing toilets are the most common type of flush found in homes. They use the weight of the water and the position of the tank to force out waste. Gravity flushing toilets are the quietest and easiest to maintain.
Pressure Assisted Flush
Pressure assisted flush or power flush toilets use pressurized air tanks to increase the water pressure during the flush. They can be noisy and more expensive to maintain but offer superior waste removal.
1.6 Gallons Per Flush Toilets
Federal government standards require that toilets use no more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush. These toilets use the maximum amount of water allowed per flush in an effort to maximize waste removal. While they can be inefficient, they are an upgrade from previous federal standards that allowed for 3.5 GPF or even 7 GPF.
High Efficiency Toilets
Toilets that flush at 1.28 gallons per flush or less are considered high efficiency toilets. They are engineered to achieve similar waste removal compared to 1.6 gallons per flush while lowering water consumption rates.
Dual Flush Toilets
Dual Flush Toilets allow users to choose between a full or partial flush. A typical dual flush toilet may have a full flush of 1.6 GPF and a partial flush of 1.0 GPF.
More and more homes are choosing to install comfort height toilets. These toilets are at least 17” inches from the floor, which is about the height of a normal chair. They offer increased comfort and are more accessible. As a result, comfort height toilets are increasingly popular, especially with older or handicapped homeowners.
Standard height toilets are 14”-15” inches from the floor. They are more cost effective than comfort height than comfort height bowls.
Exposed trap toilets are the most common type of toilet. While these bowls are most common and cost effective, they are difficult to clean and often an unwanted visual in an otherwise carefully designed space.
Toilets with concealed trapways show a distinct difference between the bowl and the base of the toilet, but allow a smooth surface for cleaning.
Skirted trapway toilets offer a smooth surface around the entire bowl and base of the toilet. They offer a modern look to any bathroom and are the easiest to clean.
After World War I, Kohler helped revolutionize bathroom design by introducing color into bathroom fixtures. In the 1960s, Kohler introduced bold new colors to reflect the creative and social upheaval happening in America. Since then, Kohler has continued offer their toilets in colors that reflect the latest design trends. At Weinstein Bath & Kitchen Showroom in Broomall we have Kohler toilets on display in a variety colors. Stop in to see which one perfectly complements your unique style!

Kohler Memoirs 1 Piece Comfort Height, Compact Elongated Toilet with Skirted Trap (K6428-0)
This toilet combines the modern touch of a skirted trap with a classic Kohler design. The compact elongated bowl design allows for the best of both worlds: the comfort of an elongated bowl with the space saving advantages of a round bowl.

Kohler Tresham 1 Piece Comfort Height, Compacted Elongated Toilet with Skirted Trap (K3981-0)
Shaker cabinets are a big trend in home design and the Tresham reminds me of that same style. I love the vertical flush handle and the slow close seat. The efficient 1.28 GPF not only is “green” but saves money too. Pair the Tresham with a cross handle shut off valve as a perfect way to finish off the space.

I have this toilet in my home and love it. It has a sleek look that matches with any bathroom design. The chair height is comfortable but the round shaped bowl saves space. The touchless flush is easy to operate and germ free.
