TOTO manufactures luxury toilets and bathroom fixtures. Because bathrooms come in several colors, TOTO offers several color options for the homeowner designing or remodeling a bathroom. These colors are not intended to serve as an exact match for any particular shade of bathroom decor, but one or more will contrast or complement all but the most extreme bathroom design themes.
Slightly darker and less lustrous than other white shades, Colonial White is available on select models of TOTO toilets. Very similar to shades such as Cotton, this toilet is a solid white that matches white paint and tile and complements light color schemes but clashes with cream and light beige, which may give the room a somewhat dingy appearance. Colonial White shows dirt easily and must be frequently cleaned to keep the toilet looking its best.
On the other side of the color scale is Ebony. Not as commonly used as white, an Ebony toilet contributes to a contemporary look. This color has a pearlescent luster and is compatible with several light and dark color schemes such as yellow, green, blue, gray and black. Ebony toilets are dark enough to hide light dust and dirt.
Because white requires so much attention to keep clean, many choose the off-white shade Bone for the bathroom. This color hides mild dust and dirt and requires less-frequent cleaning to remain looking its best. Bone is compatible with light and dark color schemes but may appear dingy in bright white bathrooms.
Available on select toilet models, Gray is a specialty color designed to match gray tile or to complement muted blues and greens. Gray creates a modern look without the overpowering dark and sometimes room-shrinking effect of Ebony.
Sedona Beige is another off-white color that, while lighter than Bone, features a hint of yellow. This shade creates a warm and inviting tone augmented by similar-color rooms. This particular shade of off-white is compatible with light-colored bathroom walls and tiles but works best in conjunction with Biscuit and other off-white colors.
Pure and lustrous white, Cotton is one of the most common colors for TOTO toilets and is available on most models. This color, like Colonial White, is compatible with most bathroom colors but requires a rigorous cleaning schedule to maintain its best appearance.
