Toilet Design

As you choose your toilet, you will want to consider a few details that will have an impact on the overall space as well as ease of use and cleaning. From the footprint to the position of the flush handle, the small details will create the experience you’ll have.

Bowl Shapes
Bowl shapes have varying lengths. Knowing what the shape of your toilet bowl is – round, elongated or compact elongated – will be important when you choose a coordinating seat. Round bowls are usually space-saving while elongated offer more comfort for adults.

ELONGATED TOILETS
Fits most residential spaces

COMPACT ELONGATED TOILETS

ROUND-FRONT TOILETS
Requires less space
A good solution for small spaces

Seat Heights
Toilet height is measured from the floor to the top of the seat. Heights vary enough to be noticeable. Most often, they fall somewhere between 15” and 19”, with standard toilets coming in under 17”. However, chair height toilets, what Kohler refers to as Comfort Height® toilets, measure 17” or more.
