I had no idea there were so many options with toilets.
I have been surfing the gardenwebs forums and it turns out this is a very polarizing topic.
Some people worry about putting Kohler toilets in houses that aren’t high-end… others swear by a good flush, no matter what the price. Others swear that Toto toilets are better than Kohler and they just happen to come in at a better price point. Dual flush or not? A bidet seat, perhaps? (or see here)
But my favorite of all, because I didn’t realize this was an option: there are one piece toilets! So that you don’t have a crease for dirt to accumulate in!
And toilets that hide the “trapway” (the squiggle pipe on the toilet for the plumbing, otherwise known as “the part of the toilet that’s a PITHA to clean”)
The cleaning advantages of a one-piece, concealed-trap toilet are hard to look past. Especially when they are this handsome.

Since I know that I plan on doing a pretty mid/high-end remodel on both the kitchen and the bathroom, it kind of makes sense to consider this option strongly; I don’t think it would be out of place.
Besides, I hate to clean.
