When taking on a complicated plumbing project like a Milpitas toilet installation, having a practical plan in place can be a big help. Since we’re experts in Milpitas toilet installation, our team of home improvement plumbing experts has created this quick guide to help you conquer planning from the early stages of your toilet installation project.
Think about people first
The most important aspect of a toilet installation is how well the toilet will serve the people who actually need to use it on a regular basis.
When considering how well the toilet will serve people, the most important factors are probably shape, size, material, and how well it flushes. The last one is particularly important not to overlook.
For example, a toilet bowl that is generally very large might be uncomfortable for smaller people to use, as they’ll have difficulty comfortably sitting on the seat. On the other hand, a smaller toilet bowl seat could be uncomfortable for larger folks, who might feel like they’re squeezing in just to sit on the toilet.
Try to pick a shape and materials that best suits the people who will be using the toilet most regularly. When in doubt, an average size is usually safe.
Check out products online and offline
When deciding which toilet products to consider, it’s useful to look both online to easily review a lot of options quickly, but also in person if possible to get a sense for what the product looks like and feels like in person.
As we mentioned above, materials matter, so seeing the materials in person can really help you understand what they will feel like and how they will perform.
Think about the future of the property
While we mentioned it’s important to consider who will be using the toilet at the property, you should also factor into your decision whether or not people will be moving in and out of your property in the future.
For example, if this is a rental property where you’re not sure how frequently tenants will change, an average choice for size and materials is definitely most suitable. If this is a home that you own, but may plan to sell in the future, average can also be a safe way to make the home as presentable as possible during a sale.
That said, if the residents of the home aren’t going to switch frequently, and might use a specific toilet most frequently like the master bedroom toilet, you can consider picking a toilet that best fits their needs.
Make sure you find the right match
It’s important to also take a step back and think beyond the toilet itself. Consider the location where the toilet will be installed, and its surrounding environment.
You’ll want to make sure that the toilet you choose is suitable for not only the style and feel of the bathroom it will go into, but also the size and surrounding fixtures.
Make sure the toilet isn’t too large, and won’t conflict with doors, showers, tubs, or cabinets. Keep in mind that the people using the toilet will also need adequate legroom and a place for toilet paper.
