Stylish, hygienic options for your wash room
Homeowners are paying more attention to the style, functionality and contribution to overall wellness of the most used seat in the home. With a wealth of design options and technology integrations, the toilet is gaining popularity in American homes. But buying a new toilet, or replacing an existing one as part of a bathroom redesign, doesn’t have to be a challenge.
The product experts at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery share three toilet trends on the rise with discerning homeowners, builders, remodelers and designers.
One-piece toilets contain a tank and bowl that are constructed in one piece. They generally have a sleeker design and are easier to clean than two-piece toilets. The TOTO “Neorest” One-Piece Toilet is a high-tech, luxury toilet with Actilight technology. Actilight technology uses light, oxygen and water to keep the toilet immaculate clean without any cleaning effort from the owner and the use of harsh chemicals.
WASHLETS BECOME THE NORM
The trend to include a washlet in the home has been slowly building over the past few years. Many customers are looking for products that aid in better hygiene. A growing number of luxury hotels now include a washlet and other amenities in the bathroom, so customers want to bring that experience to their own home. Options are available for a standalone washlet, a washlet toilet seat or an integrated smart toilet with washlet functionality.
HEALTH, HYGIENE AND SELF-CLEANING TOILETS
Touchless and smart toilets promote increased hygiene with flushing activated by touchless digital controls.
For self-cleaning toilets, the term “self-clean” means there is a mechanism or design element built into the toilet, which helps reduce the need for traditional manual cleaning. Some options may include special cleaning solutions, hydrophobic or hydrophilic glazes, advanced flushing technology, and specially designed rims.
