Let’s have a look at the features of Kohler Devonshire.
This Devonshire two-piece toilet is made from vitreous china and comes in finishes of several colors. It comes in white, biscuit, almond, dune, ice gray, sandbar, cashmere, thunder grey, and black. It consists of an elongated bowl design that offers more room and comfort for the users. The comfortable height feature of the toilet makes it easier for adults to sit and stand.
Additionally, this toilet coordinates with other products in the Devonshire collection. This toilet doesn’t come with a toilet seat, so you’ll have to buy it separately.
Kohler Devonshire uses AquaPiston technology allowing water to flow in a 360-degree motion. Its single flush system uses gravity as the water enters the precisely engineered bowl and moves towards the trap-way. This way it creates a strong siphoning action for an effective flushing operation. Its light-touch canister requires an effortless actuation force and has a 90% less exposed seal material.
The EPA WaterSense also makes the users eligible for rebates on their water bills.
Like many other bathroom toilets such as the Kohler Gabrielle, this toilet has a seamless cleaning operation. It is recommended to use gentle cleaning agents to keep the toilet in good shape and to protect its finish from damage. Furthemore, rough cleaners can lead to a hectic cleaning operation over time.
This Devonshire two-piece toilet, like many other toilets, is pretty easy to install. It requires a standard 12-inch rough-in. You’ll need to be careful with its three-bolt installation to level the tank and the bowl evenly. Even though it is a two-piece toilet, it’s a good idea to have an extra hand for its convenient installation.
If you have already had a vitreous china toilet, you know how sturdy they are. With the Kohler Devonshire you most likely won’t encounter any cracks. Such constructions are extremely durable and long-lasting. Furthermore, the trip lever on the Kohler Devonshire toilet is made out of chrome. The trip lever itself is also very sturdy. With proper maintenance, you will use the Devonshire for many years to come.
The elongated and the round bowls are the most common options so far. The round models are more desirable if you are looking to save some space. However, the round toilets may not be the best option if comfort is most important to you. This results in a much greater comfort than you would get with the round models.
The Rough-In Size
On the Kohler Devonshire toilet the installation process won’t be a problem. Any person with basic DIY skills can install this toilet alone. It has a standard two-piece 12-inch rough-in design. Furthermore, this model has the preinstalled tank bolts. Therefore, attaching the tank can be done in no time.
Considerations Before Buying
Before you buy a toilet or anything else, you should determine the price range. We consider the Devonshire to be an average-priced two piece elongated 1.28 GPF toilet. The Kohler Devonshire offers features which are in line with multiple competitors. Minor, barely noticeable things are often all the difference in the price. There are a couple differently priced Kohler Devonshire models available.
Standard or Right Height Bowl
A lot of Kohler toilets are often available in both the standard and right height versions. The standard bowls are most frequently about 15 inches in height. The Right height ones on the other hand are about 17 – 19 inches in height. These are much better in terms of comfort and suitable for the elderly. Also if you have some sort of movement disabilities, the second option may be better.
When looking for a toilet you will encounter several ways in which flushes are activated. The most common ones are the toilets activated by a handle or a trip lever. However, there are also models with a push button system available. And finally, the most luxurious option would be a hands free toilet.
