Is there really a difference when sitting down on a comfort height toilet?  How can 1-2 inches of height on your toilet make it so much better?  Let’s look at the video below and see why!  [Watch the video below by clicking on arrow in middle of photo.]

Comfort Height Toilet vs Standard Height

I wouldn’t have believed it myself until I actually installed a comfort height toilet (sometimes called raised toilet) at my own house.  After using this raised toilet and then using the standard height toilet in another bathroom in my own house, that lack of 2 inches made me feel like I was falling to the ground.  Comfort height toilets are the best!  No joke!

Benefits of Comfort Height & Add-Ons

Let’s go over a few benefits and add-ons that you should consider when updating your bathrooms with new toilets:

  • Comfort height toilets are about 2 inches taller than your standard toilet.  As you go up in age, it is so much easier to get off the throne to stand up.  Trust me.  I have bad knees, and this is a life-saver! [ video link: 0:57.7 ]
  • At the same time of installation, get a soft-close toilet seat.  You will love that it is silent and won’t make any noise at all. [ video link:  1:19.6 ]
  • They now have lighted toilet seats and built-in air fresheners.  Might sound silly, but the built-in seat could be a great “night light” for safety when you are getting up in age or for the younger children who get up in the middle of the night. [ video link: 1:40.5 ]
  • Don’t forget to install a new supply hose upon installation.  [ video link:  2:02.6 ]

Don’t forget, if you need an estimate on updating your bathroom, give me a call.   My team and I have been serving the Plainfield, Naperville, Lisle, Shorewood, Joliet, Oswego, Yorkville, and all of Chicago area for 30+ years.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this quick video on the positive reasons to update your current toilet (or all your toilets) in your house to comfort height toilets.  You won’t regret this decision.
