5 factors to consider when choosing your ideal toilet...

Every washroom deserves the perfect toilet. With there being plenty of choice in the market how do it can sometimes become confusing deciding which toilet is the best option for you.

There are many factors to take into account when choosing sanitary ware but here are five factors to take into account when picking your own:


Style has become increasingly important in accessible washrooms. It is not just about the functionality of the equipment, people now want it look stylish and complement the rest of the room. The variation of styles and colours can give your bathroom a completely new look and take away that ‘institutional’ look we so often see in accessible washrooms. Choosing a toilet that looks stylish can instantly make the room look more modern. Just make sure you choose colours and styles that complement each other.



Within the accessible washroom market comfort can never be overlooked. Using bathrooms should be an easy task for everyone so make sure you choose a toilet which ticks this box. The height of the toilet and the projection play a big part in how comfortable it is to use and how easy it is to transition to and from if the user is in a wheelchair. Referring to Doc M in the Building Regulations ensures you comply with the regulations of accessible washrooms.



The amount of space in the room will determine what type of WC you purchase. It is important to make sure you pick a toilet which comfortably fits the room, especially when dealing with accessible washrooms where more space is needed for other facilities (finger rinse basin, grab rails etc) so before you decide on your favourite style of toilet make sure it will comfortably fit.



This is possibly the most important factor to consider when purchasing sanitary ware. You need the confidence that the toilet you choose will cope with the volume of use. User safety should be a priority and the strength of the product can reduce the risks of injury.


5.Price range

It is important to understand what your price range is before you can decide which toilet you will buy. It is about finding a balance between quality of product and the price. Ultimately, your price range will decide what range of products you can choose between so decide your price range wisely.


These are just a few of the factors you should consider when choosing your sanitary ware, we hope they can make your decision process that bit easier.
