As luck would have it, 5 months after transferring into our new home, which isn’t a brand new home nevertheless it’s our new home, the powder room rest room broke.  We weren’t stunned. It was a chunk of junk. Thankfully, the bogs within the different three bogs are high quality.

The powder room is sort of an essential room as a result of it’s the toilet friends use so we prefer it to be good.  The bathroom we had was low-cost and didn’t match nicely with the pedestal sink so it wasn’t a tragedy that it broke.

Having by no means purchased a bathroom earlier than, researching and selecting one was new for us.  As a result of we’re doing up our home with Victorian decor in thoughts, we wished one thing with a contact of ornate fashion.  We additionally wished a “consolation peak” rest room which implies the seat is a bit increased up than different bogs.

After scouring bogs on-line, we settled on the Kohler Memoirs Stately Consolation Peak Two-Piece rest room.  

We actually wished a wall-mounted floating rest room like our grasp tub has however that might require transferring the piping and redoing the ground so we settled for a non-wall mounted mannequin.

We purchased our Kohler rest room from Wayfair

We purchased ours from Wayfair however you should buy kohler bogs at Kohler, Amazon and Dwelling Depot.

Wayfair isn’t simply furnishings. They promote bogs and that’s the place we discovered our Kohler rest room.  It’s not the most cost effective neither is it the most costly. It price us round $500. I really like Wayfair’s choice and web site nevertheless it does take some time to truly obtain what you purchase. We waited every week or two.  That was extra time  with a busted rest room.  We may have gone regionally however we the design of the one we discovered at Wayfair was good.  We had been keen to attend.

IMPORTANT: The rest room seat is NOT included. That’s a drag. We needed to discover and purchase it individually.

Set up

Set up was a chunk of cake as a result of I’ve a good friend who owns a plumbing firm (Waterline Plumbing in North Vancouver… a shout out to him).  I do know he’s meticulous with the work he does and trains his crew to be the identical.  

There have been no points putting in it. The plumber was out and in fairly quick.  An ordinary set up.

In contrast to the transport delay, Waterline was capable of do it the day after we referred to as.  They got here, they put in, they examined, they cleaned up, they left and we had an operational model new, comfy-height Kohler rest room in our powder room.  

We’re very pleased with it.

What we like in regards to the Kohler rest room

Writing a bathroom assessment isn’t like writing an equipment or laptop computer assessment. There isn’t precisely an entire lot to say a few rest room however I’ll do my greatest.  I believe the photographs I present all through this assessment helps greater than the rest.  I’ll do my greatest.

The flush

The flush is highly effective regardless of it being a water-saving flush.  We’ve now had this rest room for over a month and never as soon as have we had flushing points.

Peak (my favourite characteristic)

Kohler toilet overview

The seat peak is 16.5′ which is superior (ADA compliant). Common rest room heights are 14′ to fifteen′. Whereas ours is one or two inches increased, it makes an enormous distinction. It’s a lot simpler to take a seat down and rise up. I don’t perceive why all bogs aren’t this peak.  My younger sons haven’t any drawback with it.

The design

It’s barely ornate however that’s why we purchased it.  The highest of the water tank has a “crown molding” look to it. The bottom is a tapered rectangle nearly wanting like some Greek column.  As you’ll be able to see, it really works nicely in our powder room and is an efficient match for our complete home.

Sluggish-dropping lid

Slow-dropping lid on our Kohler toilet

You possibly can’t slam the lid. It drops slowly down so there’s no huge crash when the children carelessly fling it down.  Simply give it a slight faucet and slowly it drops down.  I’ve to confess it’s a pleasant rest room characteristic.

Any cons?

To not come throughout as all Kohler-fanboy like however there’s nothing I don’t like about this rest room.  For the cash it’s superb.
