When a Master Bedroom / Bathroom suite has exposed lavs in full view, it makes sense to make a bolder statement. Check out these before and after pictures.
This smaller 1/2 bathroom made good use of a corner wall hung lav.
Most new toilets have a very low profile at the base, while many older homes have high setting closet flanges (toilet flange connector). With large cast iron or lead and brass connections. When remodeling this usually isn't a problem since this is likely to be replaced anyway, Sometimes a customer just wants a newer, nicer and more efficient upgraded toilet. This cultured marble base option raises the new toilet enough so the existing flange will not need to be replaced.
