There are many types of toilets to choose from in today's market. Buying the wrong toilet for your bathroom can be costly, since you can end up with high plumber bills, re-stocking fees and high water bills. The most important factors to consider when selecting the appropriate toilet for your bathroom include: Rough-in Dimension, Bowl Size, Configuration, Flushing System, Height, Color and Design.

Rough-in Dimension:
The first thing to consider is the toilet's rough-in dimension, which measures the distance from the finished wall to the center of the sewer drain for the toilet. Determine whether your toilet is 10", 12", or 14" rough-in. 12" rough-in is the most popular size in United Estates.

Bowl Size:
Next big thing is bowl size. Most people find elongated toilet bowls to be more comfortable, but in a small bathroom, a round bowl can save space. Elongated toilet bowls measure up to 31" from the wall, while round fixtures max out at 28". Comfort also comes into play with toilet seat rim heights. Many manufacturers now offer toilets that measure a few inches taller than standard 15" fixtures.

Configuration -- One Piece, Two Piece or Wall Mounted:
There are several toilet types available. A two-piece toilet, in which the tank bolts on top of the bowl, is typically the least expensive option. A one-piece toilet, with an integral tank and bowl, can cost more, but these units are easier to clean because they have no seam. Wall-mounted toilets add drama to a bathroom, and cleaning under them is a breeze. However, this higher-end fixture can be more expensive to install because it requires a thicker wall to mount the toilet and house the tank, and future maintenance could require reopening the wall.

Flushing System -- Flush Valve Size, Trap-way Size & Water Consumption:
The flush valve is the opening at the bottom of the toilet tank and controls the flow of water to the toilet bowl when the toilet is flushed. Overall, the larger the flush valve the better the flush performance will be (a 3 inch flush valve is considered very efficient). The diameter of the trap-way is another important factor. The trap-way allows waste to easily pass out of the toilet bowl. In general, the larger the trap the better (a good trap-way size is around 2-1/8 inches). 

Water consumption is also very important. 1.6 gallon-per-flush is the universal rule of thumb when it comes to water usage. However, most companies like TOTO have decreased the water amount to 1.28 GPF. The vast majority of TOTO toilets are environmental friendly and do not compromise flushing abilities. In fact they are ranked at the very top in flushing efficiency with their new technology called Double Cyclone.

The average height on most toilets is between 14 to 15 inches to the top of the bowl. However, most new toilet models are coming in "comfort" or "ADA" height (16.5 inches and above). The higher seat makes it more comfortable to seat on the toilet and is a must for people that have difficulty standing up or suffer from knee injuries.

Color & Design: 
Make sure you get a toilet that matches with the other porcelain fixtures in the bathroom (tub, sink, vanity counter top, tile, etc). this is especially important if the toilet is next to one of this fixtures. Also, check that your new toilet design will pair up well with the overall feel of the finished bathroom (modern, contemporary, transitional or traditional).

A bathroom vanity is the piece with the most impact in your bathroom. We recommend that you start your remodeling process with your vanity in mind and then work your way through the others areas. Make sure your flooring pairs up well with your bathroom cabinet as they will be the focal point for anybody that walks into the room. The right stain of wood is also crucial as it will determine the color of your walls and how well they will make your bathroom vanity stand out.

Choose the right size of bathroom cabinet that complies with the plumbing code of your area. Please remember not to get too close to the toilet (if that is your case) as it will make the bathroom look crowded and uncomfortable. Align your vanity as best fits your bathroom design. You can either center it along the wall or push it against the corner. Make sure you get a bathroom vanity that has the sufficient amount of storage for the particular bathroom you are remodeling. Check that the drawers and cabinets have enough space to store medium and large items (such as combs and hair dryer). For small items, consider getting a cabinet mirror instead of a flat mirror on top of your vanity.

A modern free standing vanity can have an spectacular and dramatic look when combined with the right wall style. All of our modern bathroom vanities are finished with the same high quality stain in all sides. Most of the bathroom cabinets are made out of solid wood and the hardware used is guaranteed for life. Lastly, remember that the most successful bathroom remodeling is the one that is designed around your personal needs.

Vanity tops
At Bathroom Place we understand that people have different taste and needs and a single choice will not satisfy everyone. That is why we want to give you the power of choice when it comes to selecting a countertop for your favorite bathroom vanity.

We offer the following countertop materials for most of our collections: Tempered Glass (1), Solid Porcelain (2), and Cultured Marble (3). Simply find the one you like and add it to your favorite bathroom vanity!*

To help you decide which of these options is right for you,  we have put together a summary of the pros and cons for each countertop material.
    1. 1.- Tempered Glass
    • Pros: In either clear or frosted finish tempered glass offers a unique, sleek and modern look that will set your bathroom apart. It is one of the easiest surfaces to clean and has very good tolerance to heat, it won't burn or melt if you ever forget to turn off that curling iron! Tempered glass is also a non-porous surface which means bacteria and germs have no place to grow making it very hygienic and stain resistant. 
    • Cons: Even though tempered glass has been heat treated to increase its strength, it can scratch or chip depending on how is handled. Also, if not cleaned properly it can show finger prints and water spots (especially clear glass).

      2.- Solid Porcelain
      • Pros: Porcelain offers a contemporary look and matches beautifully with other fixtures in the bathroom. It has an extra smooth surface that prevents debris from sticking. It requires very little upkeep to make it look clean and shiny all the time. It is also very strong, doesn't chip easily, and wont melt if exposed to high temperatures.
      • Cons: It can crack or chip depending on the abuse. 

      3.- Cultured Marble
      • Pros: Made from the mix of natural marble chips and acrylic resin, cultured marble offers the classic and shiny look of natural marble and granite without the expensive price tag.  This strong surface is very durable, stain resistant and requires minimum maintenance.
      • Cons: Heavy falling objects and extreme heat (not too much of a threat in bathrooms) can cause this surface to chip, scratch or melt.

      *Options available for VIENNA and MONACO collections.

      Inside MONACO-37MH
      At Bathroom Place we want to ensure you get the best quality bathroom vanities. That is why most of our vanities are made out of solid wood.  They are stained inside and out to give you that quality feeling when opening the components.

      The type of solid wood used is commonly known as Rubber-Wood (Hevea brasiliensis) from Malaysia also known as "White Mahogany" or "Malaysian Oak". It has been Kiln dried under high pressure and finger-jointed to prevent wood warping. This kind of wood is not only beautiful, but is also solid and environment friendly. All wood pieces include multi-step furniture grade finish.

      The hardware system has also been taken care of. The heavy duty soft-close hinges and anti-slam drawer rails are guarantied for life. Most of our vanities are equipped with under-mounted drawer rails for a clean and modern look.
