When it comes to the daily life of residents in the area, few home improvement projects can impact your day-to-day activities as much as a Sunnyvale toilet installation. Because we frequently interact with these very necessary devices in our homes, making sure your Sunnyvale toilet installation goes smoothly should be a top priority for anyone who doesn’t want to add stress to their life.

To help you get off to the right start, our team of home improvement plumbing professionals has put together this quick guide to making sure your toilet installation project heads in the right direction.

Think about the surrounding environment

Toilet installations don’t happen in an empty void with nothing else to consider, there are a lot of variables in the surrounding environment that should come into play when you start planning the toilet installation.

For example, you should start by thinking about how much space is actually available for your toilet to be installed into, and whether or not there will be enough space like legroom to use the toilet comfortably. In addition, you may not want to take up all the space available if you prefer some empty space for more freedom of movement or a more open feel to your bathroom layout.

Consider also that the surrounding environment has an existing style and composition of materials, so when you select the type of toilet to install in the space available, you’ll want to choose something that fits the existing style, feel and materials unless you plan to revamp your entire bathroom.

Comfort is king

As alluded to above, the most important aspect of the toilet is to make sure it is comfortable and functional to use.

We’ve seen far too many people pick a really unique or artistic toilet design, only to find that it isn’t very functional or comfortable to use. Examples include elongated or strange-shaped toilet seats that are difficult or uncomfortable to sit on, and flushing mechanisms that do not provide enough strength to the water as it flushes and thereby does a poor job of clearing all the waste in the toilet.

Above all else, make sure comfort and functionality are at the top of your list, or at least near the top.

Toilets have more options these days

If you haven’t studied the market carefully for a while, or ever, the toilet market may be more complex than the average person might realize.

Toilet now come with various shapes, materials, and configurations. Different flushing options are available, bowl types vary quite a lot, and other choices are available.

Before you get too far into your project, you may want to research examples of what’s available on the market. The internet is a great place to start, as you can search various home improvement or toilet supply stores. However, you may want to also search Instagram, Pinterest, and other visually-based websites and apps that can provide very desireable examples aplenty.
