Bowl shapes have varying lengths. Knowing what the shape of your toilet bowl is – round, elongated or compact elongated – will be important when you choose a coordinating seat. Round bowls are usually space-saving while elongated offer more comfort for adults.
Toilet height is measured from the floor to the top of the seat. Heights vary enough to be noticeable. Most often, they fall somewhere between 15” and 19”, with standard toilets coming in under 17”. However, chair height toilets, what Kohler refers to as Comfort Height® toilets, measure 17” or more.
The trapway carries waste from the bowl to the piping that leads to your sewer line. Toilets with fully glazed trapways help eliminate clogging. The S-shape of the trapway can be exposed, concealed or completely hidden with a skirted design.
EXPOSED TRAPWAY TOILETS
Traditionally designed, exposed trapways can be seen from the side of the toilet.
Exposed trapway toilets are fitted with standard caps to cover the bolts that attach the toilet to the floor.

CONCEALED TRAPWAY TOILETS
Features a smooth trapway surface that’s easy to wipe clean.
Low-profile bolt caps
Low-profile bolt caps replace traditional raised caps for a smooth, easy-to-clean surface on toilets with concealed trapways. Clean Caps™ is the term Kohler uses for these low-profile bolt caps.

SKIRTED TRAPWAY TOILETS
Offers an easy-to-clean uniform toilet base from front to back.
No bolts are exposed with a skirted toilet, and many models don’t require drilling, caulk or special tools to install.

Toilet Flush Handle Locations
The flush handle location is part of the overall design of the toilet. It can be located as a pull lever or push button on top, as a swing lever on the side or front, as a hidden sensor, or on the wall as a push plate or remote control. You’ll also want to be sure that you have easy access to the handle once the toilet is installed.
