: As a follow up to the question below on Traditional toilets in powder rooms, I am considering the Toto Provincial for a powder room.
: I'm wondering if a Toto Provincial in #02 Sedona Beige (I presume this is biscuit) could be combined with a Kohler Portrait Pedestal (K-2221-8)with a Biscuit finish and be a good match in color and style.
The #02 is close to the biscuit color, and the "new" sedona beige, #12 is even a better match. TL
: I would simply use a Toto Provincial Pedestal (LPT530), but I like the backsplash and trim lines on the Portrait model.
Not a good idea to mix and match the lav top and the pedastal stand. TL
: After reading Terry's Consumer Toilet Reports, I'm not sure I want to use a Kohler Portrait toilet. It was not listed in the reveiw and although it may be fine, I would prefer to use a Toto based on Terry's review and the opinion of my local plumbing supply house. Additionally, its too bad Toto doesn't have a Traditional model that uses either the G-Max or Power Gravity system. Apparently, the Provincial is gravity only.
There appears to be a good market for traditional styling in toilets. Many older homes are in need of updating without changing the "period" look of the homes. A good one-piece traditional toilet would be great. TL
: Is mixing manufacturers' generally avoided?
Color matching can create some problems. If all toilets performed equally, there would be little need to mix and match as much. TL
