Tip 1: Scout out your options
Toilets come in more designs and variations than most people typically realize. Since most people are not familiar with the range of toilets on the market, we highly recommend spending some time to take a look at examples of toilet installations that have been successfully performed by others.

Take a moment to hop online and check out social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram, where you can peruse a large range of examples in a visual manner. Take note of examples you like, and collect a list that you can later refine down to a few examples that you really like most.

Tip 2: Try to get a better sense of the products
Along the same lines as discussed above, since most people are not super familiar with the range of toilet products on the market, it’s generally a good idea to also familiarize yourself with toilet products on the market.

Some people assume that toilets are all mostly the same and perform the same basic function, but the slight differences in toilet products actually can make a huge difference. Toilets come with different sizes, shapes, materials, and more. All of these affect the utility of the toilet for the person using it, as well as the physical touch and feeling of the toilet under a person, and of course aesthetics.

Tip 3: Design plans around people
When choosing which toilet to go with, it’s crucial that you think about the people who will be using the toilet, and ideally even solicit feedback from them directly.

Not all people are the same. People come in all shapes and sizes, and have all kinds of different personal preferences.

For example, you may want to go with a larger toilet bowl size and shape if you know the person who will use the toilet mostly is a larger person. This might apply to cases like master bedrooms, for example.

If the toilet is going to be commonly used by various guests or a wide range of people, you may want to choose a toilet that represents a best average fit to try to ensure no one has a disastrous experience.

Tip 4: Work with a well-qualified expert
Perhaps the most important factor that can make your toilet installation project a success or a failure is the person doing the installation.

It’s important that you choose to work with a well-qualified expert, and avoid inexperienced or unprofessional workers. Put a preference on professional home improvement plumbing teams that are fully licensed and insured, like our team at Performance Plumbing. In addition, check for high scores on review websites like Yelp, which help distinguish top-performing teams like ours from those that don’t leave their customers satisfied.
