Design and functionality continue to make strong strides when  it comes to an often-overlooked area of the home – the water  closet. Today’s toilets and bidets showcase streamlined looks, smaller footprints and ultifunctional, luxury options.

Cleanliness is key for both toilets and bidets, and innovations such as antibacterial glazed finishes, removable seats and superior flushing technology help control dirt and odors. Remote controls, touchless flushing and self-cleaning features also keep germs at bay.

On these two pages, Kitchen & Bath Design News showcases toilets and bidets featuring the latest styles, technological advancements and luxury options.
