As you may already know, we have been continuously working on various rooms in the house, both in terms of furniture, and design. We’ve been wanting to spruce up the look of our dreary bathroom for several years, but it’s been one of those things that no matter what we do, we never found the time of funds to finish it.

So, it took some time, but after a few weeks of researching various designs and features that make or break a product, we believe that we’ve finally found a top toilet thanks to a recommendation from the guys over at It comes from the KOHLER Highline range and includes several things that work well for it in the spec list. The main one being the design being of a more contemporary nature, but also the fact that it operated on an ideal dual flush system which will help us use less water.

Then of course, there is the matter of money. When we compared toilets across the web online, we found that this particular model held its own quite well in terms of flush efficiency and performance, whilst still keeping to a reduced cost to that of its main competitors.

The delivery is scheduled to come on Friday, so hopefully all will be well and the real thing impresses us as much as the manufacturer describes it on various sources online. However, we didn’t go in blind, we have taken time to look at what people who have actually purchased it already thinks in the form of reviews and feedback. From what we’ve gathered, consumers on the major retailers tend to rate it quite highly which is fantastic. The main negatives we read about included people fitting it on the wrong size rough in, and basic mistakes like that. More of a user error really than a problem with the product.

So we have certainly got our fingers crossed that this loo will not only look great, but will work well in the modern household with four users. So far I’ve heard nothing but good things about KOHLER toilets, so that’s a great start.

One thing I’m not always as clued up on is how to fit and install a new toilet. But, there is a first time for everything right? I will be recruiting my brother in law to lend me a hand a talk me through some of the things that I may struggle with or are inexperienced with.

The design is going to look great with the rest of the bathrooms features such as the shower head, and my wife and I are looking forward to seeing the end results. Hopefully all this research and hard worth is going to pay off.
