Other Considerations

In addition to functionality, there are a few style considerations to take into account as well. With multiple color options and matching fixture collections, you can coordinate your seat with your toilet, and your toilet with the overall color palette.




Creating the look and feel of your bathroom includes choosing the color of your toilet seat and toilet-the choice you make helps inform the tone of the room. There’s no wrong answer. It’s simply a matter of choosing the color that helps create the mood you’re after. KOHLER seats come in ten rich colors which are a perfect match for KOHLER toilets.

As a general rule, match elongated seats to elongated toilets and round-front seats to round-front toilets. However, before you make your final choice, you will want to be certain that your toilet seat is compatible with your toilet in terms of size, style and color. If you are interested in a cleansing seat, the following chart will help ensure the seat and toilet you choose are compatible.
