When you hear the term round toilet, this actually refers to the shape of the bowl as oppose to the whole toilet. Generally, you will find two styles of bowl and that’s round (obviously), and elongated.
One of the main benefits to a round toilet is it saves space. So, if you’re looking for the best toilet and don’t have a large bathroom, this might be the right choice for you. The other benefit is price. On average, a round toilet will cost about 10% less than the elongated version so take this into consideration when you’re deciding which type will work better for you.
