As the majority of toilets you find in most bathrooms are white or cream, a black toilet can be considered an unusual choice. That being said, a black toilet is quite unique and can give a very modern feel to a bathroom. If you like the thought of a black toilet in your bathroom, then luckily enough there are quite a few styles to choose from. All the leading brands manufacture toilets in several different colors, including black and ebony.
What are the Benefits of Having a Black Toilet in your Bathroom?
Well first of all black toilets do look awesome. They are contemporary, different and very stylish. They certainly stand out compared to regular white toilet bowls that the majority of households have. If you want your bathroom to have a unique look compared to most other homes, then having a black toilet is definitely the way to go.
Secondly black toilets stain less compared to white toilets. Depending on the quality of material, white toilet bowls can leave unsightly stain marks after use but of course black toilets are a darker shade, so it is a lot more difficult to see these stains.
That being said, anyone that has owned a black toilet will say that residue shows up more on a black toilet compared to a white toilet, therefore the jury is out on whether a black toilet is easier to keep clean.

Top 10 Black Toilet Reviews
1. KOHLER 3810-7 Santa Rosa Black Toilet
The Kohler Santa Rosa is a great looking, one-piece black toilet. I really like the shape of this unit and because of its one-piece design, cleaning is so much easier. The tank shape is a little different to regular toilet tanks. The tank is quite narrow in depth and that little bit wider than the bowl itself. I think that this gives it a very modern, stylish look. Add to this the one-piece design and you have a perfect toilet for a contemporary bathroom.
The Santa Rosa is also a comfort height toilet. This toilet measures 16.5” from floor to bowl and will give you an extra inch or two in height to sit on.
Instead of using a regular flapper system, the Santa Rosa uses Kohler’s patented AquaPiston canister, that provides a leak proof, powerful flush that thoroughly cleans the bowl.
The Santa Rosa uses 1.28 gallons per flush which is 20% less than the modern, standard 1.6 GPF toilet. This makes the Santa Rosa not only a great water saving black toilet but also Watersense Certified.
The Santa Rosa weighs over 100 lbs. Also, being a one-piece toilet means that the bowl and tank are connected. Of course, this means heavier lifting, so if you are installing this toilet yourself, make sure you are able to lift this heavy unit into place.

2. TOTO CST744E#51 Eco Drake Black Toilet
The Eco Drake by TOTO is a very popular, highly rated black toilet. Choosing a toilet style is a personal decision but as you can see, the TOTO Eco Drake looks similar to a standard elongated toilet. It is a two-piece unit and will come in two separate parts.
Seating measures 14.625” from floor to the tip of the bowl, meaning it is not comfort height and is not ADA compliant. It is also worth noting that the toilet does not come with a toilet seat, however it is a reasonably priced toilet, so a black SoftClose toilet seat can be bought separately.
As seen in the name, the Eco Drake is an eco-friendly toilet that is not only great for the environment but also great for your pocket. As with all TOTO toilets, the flushing performance is both powerful and reliable. This black toilet uses only 1.28 gallons per flush, making it WaterSense certified and highly efficient. Its 3” flush valve, extra-large siphon jet and large trapway, allows this
