Things to Consider When Renovating Your Toilet

toilet renovations and repairs

Although the toilet is a place where most of us spend a considerable amount of time each year, it is often a place that gets overlooked when planning and transforming our interior spaces. But if you’re reading this you’ve likely decided it’s time to undertake a toilet renovation, but now what?

Well, there are a few things you should consider before you get started!

 

What kind of toilet do you have/want?

The most common types of toilets in Australia are S-trap, P-trap and Skew trap. The trap is the bend in the pipe where the waste leaves the toilet. An S-trap is where the toilet waste pipe connects to the floor, while the P-trap pipe connects directly to the wall.

Skew traps are less common these days but can still be found in older homes. In this case, the waste pipe extends to either the left- or right-hand side of your toilet.

Toilet seat material can vary, for example, you can get wood seats that have been varnished and sealed, plastic seats (which are typically cheap and easy to clean) and resin seats which come in a range of designs that can complement your aesthetic.

Many modern toilets now come with a soft closing toilet seat which are stylish, comfortable and help to reduce loud banging and slamming. Some advanced ones even have sensors to reduce the need for touching unnecessary surfaces.

 

What is the toilet’s water efficiency?

If you are considering buying a new toilet, make sure you check its WELS water rating label which will indicate how many litres of water is used in an average flush.

It is also recommended that you use the WELS lavatory product search to compare the efficiency and flush volume of different toilets before buying.

 

How much can a toilet renovation cost?

The cost of a toilet renovation can vary greatly depending on a range of factors including size, features, space available, materials required, time needed and more.

Spoke to the owner Luke in the morning about a leak in the roof space. He sent one of his workers around the same day to repair and install a new copper line and garden tap. Jeremy was polite and did a professional job. Thanks guys.
