You’re remodeling your bathroom in your home in La Grange IL, and you might be wondering about comfort or standard height toilet – which one should you buy? Is there a huge difference when taking a seat on a comfort height toilet? How can 1-2 inches of extra height on your toilet make it better? You would not believe it, but those extra few inches really do make a big difference.  Check out my podcast below where I go into greater detail about this very topic.  Hope you enjoy.



Comfort or Standard Height Toilet – Which One Should You Buy? | La Grange IL

I would not have believed it myself, but I installed a comfort height toilet (quite often known as a raised toilet) inside my residence. After using this toilet and then using a standard height toilet, that lack of 2 inches made me feel like I was dropping to the ground. Comfort height toilets are simply the best! Seriously!

What are Comfort Height Toilets?

Let’s go over several advantages and accessories that you should remember when refreshing your restrooms with brand new toilets:

  Comfort height toilets are around 2 inches taller than your standard toilet. As you get older, it really is a lot less troublesome to exit the throne and stand up. Believe me. I deal with poor knees, and this is undoubtedly a life-saver! 

When installing, purchase a soft-close toilet seat. You will definitely like that it is soundless and will not produce any sound ever. 

Currently, there are lighted toilet seats available and also built-in air fresheners. That may seem absurd, yet the built-in light might be an excellent “night light” for safety and security as you get older or when the younger children wake up during the night. 

One more thing you want to make sure happens is to have a brand new supply hose attached at the time of installation.
