As everything in life, you will get what you pay for. You can get a “box store special” for less than $75 however everything from the working parts inside the tank to the quality of the glazing will likely be low quality. With these "special's" the flush is not great. You are going to be using your toilet every day and unless you want to pay for multiple service calls to have the toilet unclogged you are best to spend a little bit more up front.
There are options!
We carry a wide variety of toilets that come with multiple options. Here are a few things to consider.
Rough In:The distance between the floor drain and the wall, called the rough-in, is one factor to consider when selecting your toilet. The standard distance is 12" and 10" or 14" are occasionally found in older homes. You can determine the rough-in on an existing toilet by measuring from the wall behind the toilet to the middle of the bolts on the base.
Height:Toilet's come in two heights, Standard height and Comfort or "ADA" height.
Standard height is around 14-15" high from the floor to the top of the bowl and Comfort height is around 16-17".
Bowl Shape:There are two different bowl shapes to think about when purchasing a toilet. When thinking about the bowl shape, you want to take into consideration the space of your bathhroom. A round front is good because it saves space but if space is not an issue an elongated can be a more comfortable choice.
