Compact elongated toilet for a small bathroom?


I have a small bathroom for which I need a toilet, preferrably with an elongated seat. My space constraint is how far the toilet sticks out from the wall as I need space for door swing clearance. The only toilet I can find that would fit in the space is the Kohler Rialto which has a clearance depth of 25.5". However, my wife doesn't like the way it looks. Is anyone aware of any other toilets that have a similar clearance depth? Thanks.

Without researching it, I'm not sure about clearance depths. I think they're all pretty comparable. What about changing the door so it swings outward instead? How 'bout a sliding door or bi-fold? Just some thoughts that might open up more options for you.

you'll need to get a rough in book to find exact measurements. most brands have them, and you should be able to get them at a supply house, maybe online as well

How much clearance do you have?

American Standard Cadet 3 (10" rough-in) needs 28.5" clearance (including the 2.5" between the tank and wall), which is too much for your application I assume?

I think there are toilets where the tank sits between two studs inside the wall. I assume they are expensive.
