The bathroom has become the new ‘living room’ of the house, so it must be up to the task. Something that corroborates the 2020 Annual Reform Report prepared by Habitissimo, which establishes that it was the most renovated room by the Spanish with 24%. A good idea to update it and make it, at the same time, more functional and comfortable is by changing the toilets. Great forgotten compared to pieces such as the shower tray, the bathroom furniture or the bathtub that, however, contribute to well-being and design in the same way. As demonstrated by Roca’s In-Wash that integrates inodoro and bidet and self-cleaning mechanism. Therefore, if you have doubts or do not know if the time has come to acquire a latest model, we give you 8 compelling reasons to finish convincing you.

Previous steps
Before buying a new one, and if you want to do as little work as possible, it is convenient that you check if the water inlet is upper, lower or lateral; look where the drain outlet goes, which can go to the floor or the wall; and check that the output of the new one matches the one you have on the ground. If it’s rear, buy a new flex hose.

1. You want it to match the bidet
For a while, the bidet has been a disused piece that everyone did without to gain extra space. However, this has changed and is now (almost) a must in new … and large bathrooms! For the set to be in harmony and visually lightest, the ideal is that they share aesthetics, as is the case with the Vero Air by Duravit. A latest generation duo that complements each other perfectly, thanks to its rounded shapes, ergonomics and technology.

2. You are looking for an efficient model
To spend less water, will help reduce bill and take care of the planet, at the same time. To achieve this, you can choose dual flush toilets, typically three and six liters, which cuts consumption in half, or opt for energy- saving technologies, such as the TwistFlush toilets from Villeroy & Boc h, thanks to which you can save up to 19,700 liters of water per year. This system uses the physical force of a vortex (eddy) of water that vigorously flushes almost the entire interior of the toilet bowl, while flushing the waste, so for a large flush you will only need 4.5 liters, compared to six usual. In addition, the bowl, designed without a rim and ultra-smooth walls, makes it difficult for dirt to adhere.

3. You want a black one
Able to bring a touch of style and sophistication to one of the most important pieces, but with less ‘glamor’ of bathroom decoration . The black toilets will add a dramatic note to the room, making it gain in style and visual strength. Especially if it is a design as special as this one, created by Patricia Urquiola for Agape. Be careful not to die of success and try to bet on ‘total black’ only in spacious, bright bathrooms. Another good idea is to play with the black and white pairing, to gain a sense of space and reinforce its ‘wellness’ character.

4. His time has come
And that is noticeable either because it smells bad and there is no way to make the pipe smell disappear or because the cistern does not work and does not stop making noise, with the expense that it entails. They are the two clearest signs to renew the toilet. When purchasing it, better choose one with the same output or a dual model, that is, with the two types of output.

The models pedestal and tank sight do not require works and how they are larger, they are also more ergonomic. Like Jacob Delafon’s Struktura with double flush, in which the flush tank and bowl are fused into one piece, achieving an aesthetically elegant result. While the models with the recessed cistern are more expensive to install (twice as much as a standard one in sight), since you have to place it on the wall, make a partition to hide it and cover with tiles or paint. Keep in mind that if your home is over 20 years old, it may be a good time to change the plumbing.

5. You need a ‘smart toilet’
Or what is the same, an intelligent toilet that makes everyday life easier, more comfortable and clean, with functions that not only facilitate and improve the hygiene experience, but also offer greater comfort and well-being. The Gala-Innova ‘shower toilet’ achieves this, since it incorporates a cannula for intimate hygiene with two positions and different use options, so that the user can regulate the position, the intensity of the water pressure and its temperature. In addition, it includes a drying function and a remote control to keep you simple.

If you prefer an intermediate option, cheaper, but also effective, opt for the hygienic shower, a faucet that is placed next to the toilet, which occupies less than a bidet, fulfilling the same functions.

6. You want it to occupy less
And there are models with a reduced bottom and compact tank that do not occupy more than 60 cm. The models suspended, as the Val of Laufen, allow to have more clearance and facilitates cleaning underneath. Without forgetting that they are a trend due to their minimalist and modern air, which allows it to be integrated into the current bathroom decoration without adaptation problems.

7. Share space with the rest
Although the dimensions of current houses can make it difficult to ‘separate powers’ between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom areas (sink and shower or bathtub), the truth is that it is always more advisable to place it apart so that it is not the first that we see when we enter. In addition, in this way the bathroom can be used by two people at the same time with total privacy, as in this Scavolini proposal. If there are not enough square meters, there are solutions to make it independent that also work. From a low wall to a piece of furniture that acts as a partition, a slide and even accessories and cladding.

8. You have always dreamed of a magazine bath
We tend to pay attention to the vanity unit, the shower or the bathtub and, nevertheless, the toilets, especially if they are not separate, have a decisive influence on the total ‘look’. For this reason, if you want your bathroom to have enough style and personality, the toilet will help you achieve it. Of course, as long as you choose a unique model, with classic lines (retro is in fashion) as well as modern. The Vitae collection by Noken is a good example. Designed by Zaha Hadid for the Porcelanosa bathroom firm, it is defined by liquid and voluptuous shapes that blend naturally and discreetly. Love!
