There are very few home improvements can make an equally big impact on daily life compared to having a quality Burlingame toilet installation. As one of the best teams around for Burlingame toilet installation services, our team of home improvement professionals has put together these five quick tips for you to maximize your results.
Tip 1: Choose a style that will endure
When it comes to choosing toilets, many people are tempted to choose something that visually looks bold and interesting. However, it’s important to take a step back and consider whether or not the style of the toilet will remain appealing as time passes.
Many styles or materials that are too unique or stand out dramatically can be considered out of style or out of date later. Most homeowners therefore elect on a style that is both functional and generally appealing to as broad of an audience as possible, if they’re planning to later sell the home.
That said, if you’re strongly interested in a more bold or unique style, there’s nothing wrong with it. Finding the right toilet is a very personal choice if you’re going to be the person using it. However, make sure you consult with others who will be using the toilet as well.
Tip 2: Consider who will be using the toilet
Along the same lines as style, it’s important to consider who will be using the toilet from a functional perspective. No, we’re not talking about digestive tendencies, but rather whether or not the toilet will be comfortable and easy to use.
For many people this is an afterthought, however it’s important to keep in mind that not everyone fits toilets in the same way. Some toilets are better shaped for women, while others are better shaped for men. Many people elect to choose a design that best serves everyone as equally as possible. We won’t get into the biological details here as you can probably figure out why.
In addition, some people are larger or smaller than average. If the people in your home tend to be on the leaner or smaller side, you may want to go with a smaller design that is more comfortable to sit on.
No matter what you choose, remember that if you don’t plan to stay in the home very long or are preparing to sell it, you may want to choose the most average or general fit possible.
Tip 3: Prepare examples
Find examples of what you like. You can prepare a mixture of safe picks that are more general, and more bold or unique designs if you’re interested in weighing the pros and cons side-by-side.
These days, it’s easy to find a huge amount of examples on social media resources like Pinterest and Instagram, as well as blogs and social groups on platforms like Facebook.
