Did you know that the average person will spend roughly 182 hours per year in the bathroom? That's almost 8 days of your entire year...in the bathroom. If I'm going to spend over a week of my time anywhere, I would like it to be somewhere tropical! But, since we are talking about bathrooms, it should be just as inviting, warm and smell just as fresh!
Some people might not think of a bathroom as a place in your home that should be inviting and warm. For most, it's the place where you are rushing to get ready in the morning or it's the place you visit quickly during commercial breaks. Definitely not a place you'd want to linger or hang out for any extended period of time.
Well, it's about time we make the bathroom a space we look forward to being in! It's pretty much the only place in the house where you get complete privacy (unless you have small children), so why wouldn't you want to spend more time there? Of course, the first thing you think of when it comes to comfort in the bathroom is the bathtub... makes sense, right? Nothing is more soothing and relaxing than a hot bath after a long day at work. But, don't overlook the toilet! Your toilet deserves as much attention as the tub does when it comes to comfort. Toilets have come a long way as far as comfort goes...and amenities. Also, more and more designers are designing bathrooms around the style of the toilet...so don't just stick any old commode in there.
Toilets today are made to be comfortable, stylish and cleaner than ever before. Let me throw out a few examples of some really chic toilets...
- Wall-mount Dual Flush by Porcher - This wall-mount toilet's surface inhibits the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria, keeping the fixture cleaner longer and the dual-flush technology saves you water and money.
- Geberit Monolith - The entire sanitary technology is concealed behind top quality safety glass and is available in three different colors. The practical WC module can be combined with most floor standing/BTW(back-to-wall) toilet pans. The innovative designer unit from Geberit has been awarded a number of international prizes.
- Neorest 600 by TOTO - This sleek, tankless, one-piece toilet features a new Cyclone® Flushing system, which means there is no waiting for refill and no refill noise. It's skirted styling conceals trap-way for easy cleaning. An integrated Washlet features front and rear warm water washing, automatic air dryer and deodorizer. It's SanaGloss® super smooth, ion barrier glazing cleans your toilet bowl with every flush and has an automatic operation lid which opens, closes and flushes when sensor is activated.
As you can see, you have so many choices when it comes to choosing a new toilet and you don't have to sacrifice style for function. And with all the water saving features they have to offer, you won't have to go with the "let it mellow" option to save money.
So, whether you call it the toilet, the john, the can or commode, replacing your old worn out toilet with an elegant new "throne" can turn any bathroom into "rest" room.
