No offense intended…but(t)…put the fork down and read up.
We were browsing in one of the big box home improvement stores recently and noticed that Crane Plumbing has answered nature’s call by designing a “comfort width toilet” for those looking for a wider parking space in their lavatory.
That’s right. Now you can buy your very own high performance, ADA (comfort-height) approved, extra wide seat… toilet!
In fact, the seat is 2 inches wider than a regular commode seat.
A Wider Toilet Seat Is A Better Toilet Seat
Crane Plumbing is inviting its (portly) customers to “Experience the New Size of Comfort.”
Apparently, Crane is hoping that a butt-load of customers will take the plunge and switch out their old skinny toilet and replace it with its new “wide load” royal throne.
Seriously, a fat toilet should provide a higher level of comfort for those sporting a back-side on the plump end of the scale.

I started as a home-stalker… visiting brand new homes under construction in the neighborhoods near my house. That inspired me to write about home building and home renovation projects — chronicling homes during different phases of construction from a consumer's point-of-view. Basically, the tips you'll find in my articles are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building or remodeling a quality home.
