Toilet Design Guide

How to Choose the Right Toilet

Choosing the right toilet

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. With so many options available, choosing the correct toilet design can be challenging.

Toilet Shape

Round Bowl

Smaller toilet bowls that are perfect for smaller bathrooms or half baths.

Elongated Bowl

Larger, oblong or egg shaped bowls allow for more comfortable use.

Toilet Installation Type

One Piece Toilet

One single ceramic piece. One piece toilets are often smaller in height than their two piece counterparts, which offers a sleek design look. One piece construction also allows for easier cleaning.

Two Piece Toilet

Composed of a separately constructed bowl and tank. Two piece toilets are the most common and typically least expensive

Wall Hung Toilet

Wall hung toilets provide a great minimalistic look. The tank is concealed behind the wall and the wall mounted bowl allows for easy cleaning underneath.

Kohler Intelligent Toilet

Kohler Intelligent Toilets are floor mounted models with the bowl and tank in one single unit. They typically feature additional features such as heated seats, internal cleansing and more

Bowl Height

Comfort (Chair) Height Toilet

Toilets with bowls that are between 17” & 19” above the floor, which is similar to a standard chair. This makes it more comfortable and accessible for users of all abilities. ADA requirements specify comfort height toilets.

Standard Height Toilet

Toilets with bowls that are less than 17” high above the floor. More common in older heights. May not be suitable for commercial applications as they do not meet ADA requirements.

Trap Design

Exposed Trapway Toilets

Traditional design with trapway visible from the side of the toilet.

Concealed Trapway Toilet

Smooth trapway surface that is easy to clean.

Skirted Trapway Toilet

Uniform and smooth toilet base from front to back. Easy to clean and offers a sleek look

Flushing Options

Single Flush

Consistent flush with every use. Can use 1.6, 1.28 or 1.0 gallons per flush depending on manufacturer specifications

Dual Flush

Offers two different flushing capacities. User decides between half or full flush

Touchless Flush

Battery operated flush initiated by waving hand over the tank. Limits spread of germs


Kohler Toilets come in a wide variety of colors including white, black, biscuit, almond and more!
