Can a toilet improve your quality of your life? Absolutely, and that is what I learned after attending KBIS 2015 with BlogTour Modenus. TOTO was one of our sponsors as we attended the leading premier event for the kitchen and bath industry.

I love attending these events because as Kelly and I believe “You don’t know what you don’t know”. It’s hard to break away from our work when we are extremely busy, but we really can’t afford NOT to experience this type of learning. This is what allows us to stay educated, inspired and on top of our game. We are only as good as what we are exposed to!
Being immersed in the TOTO brand was very eye opening for me. I love a company that stays innovative and puts people first. Toto has become the world standard of excellence for a quality bathroom experience.

The founder, Kazuchika Okura had a vision in 1912, before public sewage systems were widespread in Japan. After seeing more advanced systems overseas, he was intent on establishing a ceramic sanitary ware laboratory to develop healthier and cleaner living spaces!

One of the products that we spent a lot of time learning about were washlets. Washlets are a highly advanced system in hygiene and comfort.
While a TOTO washlet may look like an ordinary toilet seat (and it does fit onto any toilet seat) – it’s inner workings and features offer incredible comforts and cleaner living.
1. Heated seat
2. Built-in bidet
3. Automatic open/close lid
4. Auto flush activated by sensors
5. An integrated wand to release a warm, soothing stream of aerated water and is the ultimate in hands-free hygienic cleansing.

In addition to all of the above, TOTO strives to act responsibly as a corporation and are actively involved in several community based projects. They have a long history supporting Habitat for Humanity and made significant product donations over the years.
Needless to say, we are big fans!
