    The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in a home because it is in constant use, even in the evenings. The toilet is most likely used the most. Therefore, homeowners have to choose a toilet that is comfortable and durable while looking sleek and matching the bathroom's decor. Also, many people are looking for toilets that offer water saving mechanisms because they not only save water but also save money in the long run.

    Toilets are available in a variety of colors and styles. A basic toilet consists of porcelain with a bowl and tank. There are also the European styled eco-friendly toilets which can be hooked up to US standard plumbing. Some persons prefer the one-piece toilets or other designer toilets like stainless steel units or antique styles for their bathroom. Some people prefer to install bidet toilets that can serve dual functions. For people with exquisite taste, there are toilets comprised of natural stone such as black granite, marble or limestone.

    Before purchasing a toilet, a homeowner must have a budget in mind. A basic toilet may not cost much but it is important to purchase one that will come with strong fittings that can last for a long time. The one-piece and designer toilets are quite costly because of their appearance and the type of material that the units are made from.

    A water saving toilet is the most ideal today as everyone is seeking to conserve water. Saving on water also helps to reduce the water bill. The money saved can be used for savings or other remodeling costs. A water saving toilet may cost a little more upfront than the standard toilet but over time, it is the better investment.

    The one key thing that people need to remember with installing a toilet is to get the assistance of a qualified plumber. As this is such an important plumbing fixture, the installation should be done correctly to avoid any unfortunate mishaps. In addition, the installation should look clean and smooth.

Some people opt for standard toilets while others prefer designer toilets which cost a little more. There are some homeowners who want to stay along the eco-friendly path and they prefer the water saving toilets. Regardless of the choice, the toilet should be installed by a qualified plumber.
