Toilets are one of the most essential components of every home. When you’re deciding which bathroom toilet to install in your newly-built home or planning out to renovate your bathroom, there are many choices and factors you should take into account.

When choosing the right toilet, you need to consider what type, design, size, and application that will suit your bathroom design preference and meet your comfort demands. With numerous options to choose from, we’ve listed some bathroom toilets and you’ll be sure to pick the right and perfect bathroom toilet for your home.




One-piece toilet is a seamless unit with an integrated bowl, tank, and trapway. One-piece toilet design is easy to install, clean, and maintain.


Two-piece is the most common and preferred toilet type in which the bowl is separated from the tank. This type is more efficient, functional, and economical. 


This type features a wall-hung toilet bowl. Its tank is hidden behind the wall and the flush plate is also mounted to the wall. Wall-mounted toilet is a space-saver with its sleek and small size. It is easy to clean with its streamlined design.

Elongated bowl is more roughly oval in shape. It is a few inches longer that makes the toilet seat more comfortable to sit on.


On the other hand, a round bowl has a compact design and is a few inches shorter that allows you to save space, making it ideal for small bathrooms. 


Square-shaped bowls may be rarer, but it can give a minimalistic design yet modern feel to your bathroom. Its hidden trapway and smooth external surface makes it easier to clean.

A single-flush is the most common toilet flushing system. It is designed to release the same amount of water per flush. A normal single-flush toilet releases 6 liters per use, while a water-saving model can reduce water usage to 3-4.5 liters per flush.


Dual-flush toilets are designed to reduce the amount of water being flushed during use. It features two different button flushers, one button for liquid waste and one is for solid waste. A normal dual-flush toilet releases 3 liters for half flush and 6 liters for full flush, while water-saving models can reduce water usage to 3 liters for half flush and 4.5 liters for full flush.

Siphonic flush

A toilet with a siphonic flushing system has a long and narrow S-shaped trap way. It is designed for a quieter and more powerful flush that has the capacity to clean the toilet bowl thoroughly for every use.


Instead of pushing a lever or button, the touchless toilet automatically flushes by simply waving your hands around the sensor range. Unlike the traditional flush lever, it can minimize the spread of germs and harmful viruses for increased cleanliness and hygiene in your bathroom.


An intelligent toilet features next-generation technology. The toilet seat opens and closes automatically when a movement is detected. It is also equipped with a sensor-activated touchless flush technology. Experience supreme comfort and luxury with its warm-water cleansing, heated seat, and nightlight features.
