Toilets come in many different styles, sizes and shapes, including round bowl toilets, one-piece, two-piece and elongated bowl styles. We’ll be discussing the elongated toilet here.

round toilet vs. elongated toilet

Elongated bowl toilets are preferred for a couple of great reasons. First, the elongated bowl design actually makes the bowl longer in front. Without going into details, this feature is more popular with men. Second, the larger bowl size improves sanitary conditions in your bathroom. Of course, the larger bowl size is naturally more comfortable for large people – much more surface area to sit on!

Elongated toilets are about 2 inches longer, in general, than a round bowl toilet. These toilets are more egg-shaped and are very popular. The elongated toilet is a more comfortable option for most adults, including the big and tall segment of the population. There are plenty of seat options available and they’re cost-competitive with other styles of toilets.
