Top 10 Black Toilet Reviews – Which One Will You Choose

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

Best Rated Black Toilet

1. KOHLER 3810-7 Santa Rosa Black Toilet

Design

Black Toilet - Kohler Santa RosaThe 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.

Flushing System

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.

Installation

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.

Specifications

  • Colors: Almond, Biscuit, Black, Dune, Ice Gray, Sandbar, White
  • Dimensions: 27-3/4″ x 18-3/4″ x 28-3/16″
  • Seat Height: 16-1/2″ (without seat)
  • Shape: Elongated
  • Weight: 102 lbs
  • Flush: 1.28 GPF
  • Handle: Left-side
  • Rough-in: 12″
  • Certification: WaterSense & ADA Compliant

PROS:
  • Compact
  • Easy To Clean
  • Powerful
  • Water Efficient
  • Comfort Height

CONS:
  • A little Pricey

Overall

The Kohler Santa Rosa 3810-7 toilet is a compact, contemporary and attractive black toilet that will look great in any modern bathroom.

Best Value Black Toilet

2. TOTO CST744E#51 Eco Drake Black Toilet

Design

Black Toilet - TOTO Eco DrakeThe 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.

Flushing System

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 eco toilet to make a powerful and effective flush, each and every time.

Installation

This unit will arrive in two separate boxes.  A two-piece toilet will be lighter and easier on your back because you can install the bowl and tank separately.

PROS:
  • Reasonable Price
  • Powerful Flush
  • Efficient Water Usage
  • 3″ Flush Valve – 125% larger Than Standard
  • Normal Height Seating
  • Great For Short Adults And Children

CONS:
  • Toilet Seat Not Included

Overall

The TOTO Eco Drake toilet has a classic style, with a powerful and very efficient flush.  This black toilet is highly rated and very good value for money.

Best Comfort Height Black Toilet

3. KOHLER K-3817-7 Memoirs Stately Black Toilet

Black Toilet - Kohler Memoirs StatelyNext is the Kohler Memoirs Stately, the most Regal of all toilets.  The Memoirs Stately is one of my favorite looking toilets and it is easy to see why it is so popular.  Its solid, square design looks both classy and luxurious.  So many modern toilets are round in shape, however the Memoirs Stately embraces its sharp edges and solid base, looking very square and sturdy.

This black toilet is has comfort height seating and is ideal for people that need a little bit more height in a toilet seat.

The Memoirs Stately is a two-piece model and the square tank perfectly matches the square base.  I particularly like how the the tank lid is bigger than the square tank, giving it a Royal Crown look.

Flushing System

Similar to the Santa Rosa above, the Kohler Memoirs Stately uses an AquaPiston canister that allows a powerful and efficient flushing system.  The canister is flapperless, will not leak and also provides 50% more rinse than previous Kohler models.

The Memoirs Stately is also WaterSense certified and uses a mere 1.28 gallons per flush. This black toilet is solid and powerful but still very efficient with its use of water.

Installation

It is a large toilet, weighing 105 lbs, so it is quite heavy.  However, it is a two-piece unit, therefore you will be able to lift and install it separately.

Specifications

  • Color: Almond, Biscuit, Black, Ice Gray, Sandbar, White
  • Dimensions: 30-3/8″ x 18-7/8″ x 31-1/6″
  • Seat Height: 16-1/2″
  • Shape: Elongated
  • Material: Vitreous China
  • Weight: 105 lbs
  • Flush: 1.28 GPF
  • Handle: Left-Side
  • Certification: WaterSense & ADA

PROS:
  • AquaPiston Flushing System
  • Elegant Design
  • Comfort Height
  • WaterSense Certified

CONS:
  • Toilet Seat Not Included

Overall

The Kohler Memoirs Stately black toilet is a very attractive looking model and will add a lot of style and grace to a contemporary bathroom. It not only looks fabulous but is also powerful and water efficient, making it one of Kohler’s most popular models.

Design

Black Toilet - Two-piece ToiletThe Kohler  Wellworth K-3577-7 is a compact, round bowl, black toilet that will be a perfect addition to a small bathroom.

The round front bowl provides a smaller toilet, measuring only 27.5″ in length.

Also, this model has standard height seating, measuring 14.5″ from the floor to the top of the bowl.  Standard height seating, along with a round bowl is ideal for young children and petite adults.

Flushing System

The Kohler Wellworth uses Class Five Technology to provide a powerful flush every time.  An extra large canister  is leak proof and flushes the entire bowl.  Another nice feature is the extra rinse after each flush, that will help ensure a clean bowl after use.

The K-3577-7 also uses only 1.28 gallons per flush, making it WaterSense certified.  At 1.28 gallons per flush, this water efficient toilet uses 20% less water compare to a 1.6 GPF toilet and conserves a whopping 16,500 gallons of water per year compared to a 3.5-gallon toilet.

Installation

The Wellworth is a two-piece toilet, making it a little easier to install.  Also, this unit uses a DryLock Fast Install System.  This installation system ensures no-leak installations that are fast and foolproof.  A socket wrench is all that is needed to secure the tank to the bowl and there is no need for bolt holes in the tank.

5. KOHLER K-4007-7 San Souci Black Toilet

Design

Black Toilet - Kohler San SouciThe Kohler K-4007-7 has a unique, compact design and is surely the smallest tank and bowl toilet in this article.  Its seamless design will make it very easy to clean and its compact design makes it ideal for small bathrooms.

This unit has a similar look to the Santa Rosa, however the San Souci is a lot smaller.  Measuring  24.25″ in height, 25-5/8″ in length and 16.75″ in width, makes this black toilet a real mini toilet.

Its seamless, smooth design will make cleaning it a breeze.

This unit may be small in size but it is big in price.  It is quite an expensive unit,  however, it does come with a SoftClose toilet seat included.

Flushing System

The San Souci uses the same powerful flushing system as some of the other Kohler toilets in this article.  The AquaPiston flushing canister ensures a powerful, leak-proof flush that will reach the entire bowl.

It is a WaterSense certified toilet that will only use 1.28 gallons of water per flush.  This water efficient usage will help you save money on water bills, over time.

Installation

It is a one-piece toilet, therefore will need to be lifted in place all at once.  However, it does weigh 92 pounds, which is one of the lighter one-piece models.

Specifications

  • Color: Available in many colors, including Black.
  • Dimensions: 34.25″ x 16.34″ x 25-5/8″
  • Seat Height: 15.25″
  • Shape: Round

6. KOHLER K-3589-7 Cimarron Black Toilet

Design

Black Toilet - Kohler CimarronThe Cimarron is probably Kohler’s most popular model, and luckily it is available in a black color.  It gets a lot of positive reviews for its reliable flushing system and it helps that it looks great also.

This Cimarron black toilet has a classic look and has a smooth, two-piece, elongated design.

It is a comfort height toilet that will have similar seating measurements to a standard kitchen chair.  A comfort height toilet seat will be a lot more comfortable for tall people and for anyone that might have difficulty sitting down on a lower, standard seat.  However, comfort height seating will be a little high for small children.

The elongated bowl will be a little bit larger than a round bowl, providing more comfort for larger individuals.

Flushing System

Another Kohler model that uses the AquaPiston canistor.  This flushing system provides a smooth, consistent and reliable flush, each and every time.  The AquaPiston canister boasts 90% less exposed seal material, compared to a 3″ flapper, making it virtually leak proof in performance.

The Kohler Cimarron flushing system provides a powerful, smooth and consistent flush that reaches 100% of the bowl.

Installation

Weighing only 88 lbs, this black toilet is a lot lighter than other models.  Also, it is a two piece toilet, which means the bowl and tank can be installed separately.

Kohler’s patented DryLock™ System allows an easy and quick installation, and also helps prevent water leakage.

Specifications

  • Color : Almond, Biscuit, Black, Ice Gray, Sandbar, White
  • Dimensions : 29-1/2″ x 17-5/8″ x 30-3/4″
  • Seat Height: 16-1/2″

7. KOHLER K-6299-7 Veil Wall-Hung Elongated Black Toilet

Design

Wall-hung Black Toilet By KohlerWall hung toilets are becoming more and more popular these days, and it is good to see that the leading brands are making all styles of toilets available in different colors.  Kohler’s wall-hung toilet is the K-6299-7 Veil and has a lovely smooth design.

Like all wall-hung toilets, the Veil is perfect for small bathrooms because of its compact size.  The tank system will be behind the wall, so all that will be seen is this stylish bowl.  The bowl is elongated in shape, allowing a more comfortable seating experience for most people.

Cleaning this toilet will not only be easier because of its compact and smooth design, but also it is very convenient to wipe underneath the wall-mounted bowl.  Keeping your bathroom clean will never be easier when you have a wall-hung toilet.

A Reveal® Quiet-Close™ Grip-Tight Seat is also included.

Flushing System

A dual-flush actuator will be placed above the black toilet, giving you a choice of 0.8-gallon per flush for light waste and a 1.6-gallon per flush for bulk waste.  Having a choice of flushes will give you the opportunity of making great water savings.

Installation

Black Toilets - Top 10 ReviewsWall-mounted toilets look amazing, however installing this style of toilet is the issue.  They are a lot more complicated and expensive to install and you may need a professional.  The K-299-7 is just a bowl and will need to be combined with the K-6284 In-Wall Tank and Carrier System to create a complete K-6303 Veil toilet.

A great feature with this wall-hung toilet is the flexibility of installation height.  The bowl can be installed to give a seat height from 15-⅜” all the way up to 28-½” from the floor.

Installation is not easy or cheap, however, if you have your heart set on having a beautiful black wall-hung toilet in your bathroom, then it will be worth the effort and extra cost.

8. Glacier Bay 2-piece High-Efficiency Dual Flush Black Toilet

Design

Glacier Bay Black ToiletGlacier Bay may not be as well known as the bigger brands, however this two-piece, dual flush black toilet looks like a great looking model.

It has a classic, no frills design that looks a little similar to the Kohler Cimarron.  What makes this toilet a little different to the other floor mounted black toilets in this list are two things:

  • It is a dual-flush toilet.
  • It has a button flush, instead of a handle flush.

Flushing System

The powerful flushing system is controlled by a dual flush button on top of the tank.  A half flush uses 1.1 gallons per flush, where as a full flush uses 1.6 GPF.  This makes this water efficient toilet WaterSense certified  and a great water and money saver.

Installation

The Glacier Bay ‘QuickConnect Easy Installation System’ guarantees a very easy installation.  In fact, no tools are needed for this installation.

Specifications

9. KOHLER K-76301-7 Highline Black Toilet

Design

Black Toilet - Kohler HighlineAnother black toilet, another Kohler model.  It may look like I like Kohler toilets, and I do, however the reason Kohler is on the top 10 list so much is because Kohler make a lot of black toilets.  In fact, they appear to have a black version of all their models.  Good for you Kohler!

Well, the Kohler K-76301-7 Highline should easily make this list for looks alone.  I love the shape of this toilet, and it looks even better in black.

With it’s smooth, minimal skirted design and stylish tank, the Highline will definitely add some class to your bathroom.

It has Comfort Height seating, which is great for anyone that prefers a taller toilet seat.

And, I really like the Kohler Clean Caps®.  Low-profile bolt caps that look great and make cleaning that little bit  easier.

Flushing System

Using Kohler’s Class Five flushing technology, you are guaranteed a powerful flush with an extra rinse, to make sure the bowl is thoroughly clean.

The Highline is also a WaterSense certified toilet, using only 1.28 gallons per flush.  Compared to a 3.5 gallon toilet, the Highline will save up to 16,500 gallons per year.

Installation

Kohler uses a 3 bolt installation system to connect the tank to the bowl.  This 3 bolt system provides a secure and leak proof connection.

As stated earlier, the Highline has low-profile bolt caps that give a more seamless design to the skirt area of the base.  These caps are easy to clean.
