How hard can it be to pick out a toilet? As it turns out pretty hard. Our new fixer upper, now dubbed the "No Tell Hotel Strodl" has 4 different toilets each in a different pastel color from 1960. It's a regular Easter basket around here! My Architect (hubby) took me shopping once and I went over to Ferguson's to check things out on my own as well. I was taking notes, pictures, reading labels and inspecting every square inch of the loos. The one thing I wasn't doing was sitting on each one. Now I'm not particularly self aware or easily embarrassed but I wasn't about to sit on every toilet in a showroom filled with ladies picking out Dorn Bracht fixtures in their cutest Tory Burch sandals... that is until the sales woman INSISTED that I sit on the one I really liked. It was a very modern, narrow squarish toilet. She said to me, (the sales woman not the toilet, although there are some toilets that will do everything short of well...give you a bikini wax) "you have to sit on that or I won't sell it to you." So I sat and I couldn't get up fast enough you guys. This was one uncomfortable toilet. I proceeded to sit on every toilet and didn't give a crap what anyone thought-sorry couldn't resist! 4 toilets can run you a little money and can be a pain to install so I didn't want to get this wrong. In the end, we decided on a nice modern Toto with a dual flush system to save on water. It's pretty, comfy and saves on the H2O. Two are going in tomorrow and I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little excited about it. Moral of the story-sit your butt down, you have try on toilets like you'd try on a pair of shoes. I've hear Japanese toilets are ahmazing. Anyone have any stories they'd like to share. I'm really curious about them now!
