Likewise, what is the difference between standard height and comfort height toilets?
Comfort height toilet measures around 17 to 19 inches from the floor to the seat top. These types of toilets are normally around 2 to 3 inches higher than the standard height toilet. American with disabilities requires that all public restrooms to install toilets with ADA height, which is the comfort height.
Also, what is the best height for a toilet seat? The newest and most popular comfort height is typically around 16 1/8” floor to rim. The standard ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) height toilets must have, a 17”-19” floor to bowl rim height, including the seat. You should also consider the toilet rough-in from the wall, which is commonly 12”.
Keeping this in consideration, what is the highest toilet height?
Today's so-called "comfort height" or "right height" toilets feature bowls that are 17 to 19 inches high, as compared to the standard 15 inches of a regular toilet. The higher bowl height can be good for the knees and back and can offer real advantages to taller folks, the elderly and people with mobility problems.
What toilet is better round or elongated?
THE PERFECT FIT 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". Because round bowls are less expensive than elongated bowls, they save a few dollars, too.
