While you might not think about it on a daily basis, one of the main ways you can use home improvement plumbing to enhance daily life at your home is by completing a well-planned Hayward toilet installation project. However, when planning your Hayward toilet installation project, it’s important that you know how to get the project off to the right start.

To help you navigate this initial process, our home improvement plumbing experts has compiled this quick guide that you can use to quickly get up to speed.

Start with who will be using the toilet
When planning your toilet installation, first consider who will be using the toilet. After all, no matter how beautiful or elegant your toilet may look, if it isn’t comfortable for the user, the toilet can turn into a daily nuisance instead of a comfortable place of relaxation.

For example, if the toilet is in the bathroom attached to the master bedroom, and you know who will be living there for a long period of time, you can consider buying a toilet that best conforms to that person’s body. Some people with larger bodies may need a wider toilet bowl, for example, whereas the same wide bowl might be very difficult for a smaller person to comfortably sit on.

If the toilet is in a more general location, or if you plan to rent or sell the property in the somewhat near future, you’ll probably want to pick the most universally comfortable design possible.

Consider the dimensions of the installation space
Aside from who will be using the toilet, it’s also to consider the space that the toilet will be located within.

For example, you may initially be considering a larger toilet design, but if the space that the toilet will be placed into is too narrow or short, the person sitting on the toilet might not have enough leg room.

Also consider cabinets, drawers, and shower doors that people might need to open. If your toilet blocks doors or cabinets, it may make it difficult for people to use the surrounding fixtures in the bathroom.

Take a look at as many examples as possible
Now that you’ve got an idea of which people will be using the toilet and what space you can work with, you should start browsing examples. Try to browse as many examples as you can, and then narrow your list after you’ve reviewed a large amount.

You can go in person to stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s, or browse online with apps like Instagram and Pinterest, which have tons of designs to check out. Narrow your list of preferred examples to a handful, then you can move forward with your project.

Talk it over with a professional
Once you’ve got a good list of examples that you like, you should talk to an expert plumbing team that specializes in home improvement plumbing projects, like our team at Performance Plumbing.

A well-seasoned professional should be able to review your examples with you and explain all of the pros and cons behind each of the examples you chose.
