Q: Hello Ed: I plan to remodel our master bathroom. With this fresh start I have an issue that has followed me most of my life that hopefully we can solve. I’m very tall and would like to install a higher toilet. What are some options? — Joey, Arizona

A: I get a lot of higher residential toilet requests from taller people and older individuals as well. The first and easiest option is to look into a floor-mount toilet style often called comfort height.

Comfort height toilets are a little higher than a standard toilet. Sitting down will feel like the height of a dining room chair.

For a more custom-height option (also more expensive), you can look into a residential wall-hung toilet. Wall-hung toilets hang on a strong harness inside the wall. Some models allow for the bowl to be raised up in a higher position.

Either toilet option may work for you to hopefully solve your longstanding toilet issue.
