Choosing the Right Toilet Is Vital!

Choosing the Right Toilet Is Vital!

When it comes to purchasing a new toilet, there are more than a few things you should consider. Your new toilet suite must match the overall look and aesthetics of your bathroom. Also, your toilet should be water efficient and functional as well.

While many people consider these factors, most people do not consider the time they actually spend on a toilet. According to a recent study, people spend more time sitting on the toilet each week than exercising. So, for comfort alone, the toilet you choose really does matter. But not only that, your toilet choice will also impact your water bill and the overall aesthetics of your bathroom.

As the head of purchasing at Ross’s Discount Home Centre, I have years of experience in dealing with toilets in Perth. It’s fair to say that I know everything there is to know about them. And, to help you make the right choice, here’s a simple guide to selecting a toilet. When you’re done reading this article, you’ll know just what to look for when choosing toilets in Perth.

Toilet style

The first thing to look for when choosing a toilet is the style of the toilet. Modern toilets are available in a range of styles including close coupled toilets, back-to-wall toilets, wall faced toilets and wall hung toilets. You’ll find thousands of toilets across all of these styles in the market.

Now, the style of toilet you choose should tie in with the overall aesthetics of your space. If you don’t have enough space in your bathroom, choose a wall hung toilet suite that will save space. On the other hand, if space is not a concern, you can consider close coupled toilets or any of the larger styles. The shape of your toilet will also determine if it ties in with your bathroom aesthetics or not. Elongated toilet bowls look more stylish than round bowls but they also increase the size of a toilet.

Whatever style and shape of toilet you choose, you must make sure to tie it in with the aesthetics of your space. There’s no point in going for something high-end or something too large if it will look out of place in your toilet.


Given that we spend so much time on our toilet seats, you must consider comfort when choosing a toilet seat. The shape of a toilet bowl plays a big role in how comfortable a toilet is.

Toilet bowls are usually available in round and elongated shapes. Most people tend to agree that elongated toilet bowls are much more comfortable as compared to round bowls. This is because elongated bowls offer more seating space as per the body.

While you must give comfort a preference, do remember that comfort comes with a price. In most cases, elongated toilet bowls will be more expensive as compared to round toilet bowls. So, make sure to keep your budget in mind when you’re out shopping for toilets in Perth.

Water Efficiency

Water efficiency is another important factor to consider when you’re looking for toilets in Perth. Toilets account for 1/3rd of the total water consumption in your household. So, it is very important to choose a toilet that is as water efficient as possible.

In Australia, every toilet has a WELS rating ranging from 1-5 to indicate the water efficiency. Before making a purchase, make sure to check the WELS rating of the toilet suite you’re considering.
