If you’re looking to make sure you get the perfect Saratoga toilet installation project done for your needs, it’s always important to study up on some basic best practices first. To help you with your Saratoga toilet installation project, our expert home improvement plumbers have written this quick set of practical tips that will have you on the path to success in no time.
Tip 1: Think about who will be using the toilet
Using the toilet is a very personal experience for each person, so it’s important to ensure that whoever is using the toilet is totally comfortable while taking care of their business.
Not all toilets are designed the same, and how they are designed affects the comfort of the user. Larger toilet bowls may be hard for smaller people to sit on and stabilize themselves, while smaller toilet bowls may be very uncomfortable for larger people who may feel a lot of pressure and not enough distributed body support.
If you know who will be using a specific toilet long-term, for example if it’s in a master bedroom, consider picking a toilet that best fits that person or group of people. If you’re unsure about who will be using the toilet long-term, or it could change, aim for a general fit that will be comfortable for most people in case the property is sold or rented out.
Tip 2: Pick something you like, but will stand up over time
When choosing a toilet, it’s important to pick something that is both appealing and practical.
To find examples that you like, you can hop online and check out home improvement blogs and social media platforms like Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook. Find examples of toilet installations that you like, and then narrow down your list to only your favorites.
While checking out examples, be sure to pick a style that you think will stand up over time. Toilet installations usually last for a long time, so it’s usually best not to pick anything too trendy that may go out of style after a few years.
Tip 3: Check out products in person if possible
If possible, it’s always best to go to showrooms or stores to check out the toilet products in person. Doing this will give you a better sense of what the materials and sizes are like, as well as what it’s like to interact with the toilet products.
If you don’t have time for that, you can check out products online as well, but it may not give you an impression that is accurate enough to make the best decision possible.
Tip 4: Talk your project over with a professional
