    I am looking for a 14" rough toilet to match (does not need to be exact) an older (20yr) American Std white tub.

    This is a kids and guest bath, so performance needs to be good, looks are not as important. Cost should be kept reasonable, but not at the expense of performance.

    Kindly suggest recommendations.

    Regards,
    db

    I should mention that prior toilet was an older AS with 12" rough and the extra gap to the wall did not bother us - we will also be installing a cabinet above the toilet which will hide the gap even more. Thus, 12" would be ok if we had to....

    Buy an American Standard 14" rough toilet, but actually almost ANY white toilet will be a close match so you will not see any difference. Especially if the lavatory is a cast iron one.

    Just pick up a 12" then.

    American Standard doesn't move the bowl back, only Toto lets you do that.

    Put in the 12" and the wall cabinet.

    Seems from this forum that the only true 14" toilet is the unifit Toto and that seems to get very expensive (only expensive skirted toilets have the option).
    This is a kids/guest bath, and the toilet is behind the door (not visible when you walk in).

    Thus, likely will pick up a 12" of decent quality/cost based on this forum recommendations and live with the gap with cabinet above. Space/room is not an issue in the toilet area.
