Like shown in this comparison table, I could find only one toilet in the 19 inch height toilet range. Others are either shorter or taller than 19 inches.

Fortunately, after checking its measurements and online reviews, I can say this 19-inch Signature Hardware Stalnaker toilet is a good toilet to buy. When I checked, I found mostly good reviews and ratings from customers on Amazon and other online sites.

Many customer reviews had said its height is perfect for someone who is tall, elderly or someone with leg problems. The toilet brand, Signature Hardware is also a old and reputable toilet supplier based in Northern Kentucky and sell toilets to all over United States or Canada.

If you are not fixed on the idea of buying only 19 inch toilet height model, then the Kohlder Highline Classic and 21 inch Convenient Height toilet model are also good toilets to consider. They both have are much more popular than this 19″ toilet and better reviews and ratings.

The 19″ high Stalnaker toilet is much cheaper than its two nearest height competitor models. The river but shorter 18/18.5 Kohler Highline toilet more expensive than the Stalnaker. And the taller 20 inch Convenient Height toilet is even more expensive.

Also the 20″ Convenient Height toilet might be too tall if you are looking for a 19 inch toilet because with the seat the 20″ convenient Height toilet becomes a 21 inch high toilet. (I feel 21″ is much too tall for most people, unless its used exclusively by someone well over 6 feet tall.)

Like I said before, after going through everything I feel assured that the 19 inch high Signature Hardware Stalnaker toilet is a good choice for those looking for a 19 inch toilet or 19 inch seat height toilet.

This model measures 18-inch from floor to bowl rim alone. With the toilet seat it becomes 19 inch tall. This will be a great help to tall and elderly people. Specially, since most toilets today are either standard-height (14-16) or comfort-height (17-19). But even Comfort-Height toilets are around 16 1/2 or 17 inches without the seat and with seat are still only about 17 or 18 inches tall.

The American Disabilities Act (ADA for short), specifies that toilet seat height must range between 17 and 19-inches for the elderly or disabled to use comfortably. Toilets Stalnaker toilet even without the seat meets ADA requirements.

Many toilets sold these days don’t include the seat. But this Stalnaker comes with a normal standard toilet seat included that when installed still meats ADA guidelines of 19 inch overall toilet seat height. However according to some customer reviews the toilet seat/lid supplied is not very good quality is one of the only complaints about this product. But its seat size is a standard size and you can find a replacement good one easy enough. The hard part is finding a 19 inch toilet and this is the only one out there.

You can also add a bidet seat (Amazon link) for this toilet if you want. Depending on the bidet seat you get it will add about 1 to 2 inches to bowl height which might make this toilet into a 19 or 20 inch seat height toilet with the bidet.

18.25-18.5 Inch Seat Height Kohler Highline Classic Toilet

If you want a alternative to 19″ Stalnaker toilet the nearest in height to is this 18″ Kohler Highline Classic toilet.

According to this Kohler Highline Classic toilet’s specification sheet its toilet bowl rim height is 17 1/8 inches. With a recommended Kohler toilet seat that fits this toilet it becomes 18 1/4″ or 18 1/2″ (depending on seat thickness). Kohler recommends three toilet seats for this Kohler Highline toilet. They are:

  • K-4636 Cachet Quiet-Close Elongated Toilet Seat – Seat Thickness 1 1/8″ inches (Check on Amazon)
  • K-5588 Purefresh Elongated Toilet Seat – Seat Thickness 1 3/8″ inches (Check on Amazon)
  • K-4108 C3-230 Elongated Cleansing Toilet Seat – Seat Thickness 1 3/8″ inches (Check on Amazon)

The first two are normal toilet seats. The last is a bidet seat with advanced options for easy cleansing.

Why Is it difficult to find a 18 inch or 19 inch toilet?

That’s because many tall and elderly people are satisfied with the 17 or 17.5 inch high Comfort Height toilets that are commonly available for sale from top toilets brands like Kohler, Toto and American Standard. The reason they become satisfied is, even 17 inch high seat height means they are about 2 inches taller than the older ‘Standard Height toilets’ they have been using all these days. The Standard Height toilets measure only around 15-inch with the seat. That’s why its so difficult to find even a 18 inch high toilet let alone a 19 inch high toilet.

Almost all the so-called tall toilets or ADA complaint toilets for sale in the market are ‘Comfort Height’ toilets. From what I have seen, when they say ADA compliant or ‘Comfort Height’ toilet, it generally means they have a bowl height of only 16″-16.5″ inches. They become a 17″-17.5″ inch seat height toilet with their 1″ or 1.5″ thick toilet seats thus coming within the ADA specified 17-19 inch seat height.

Final Thoughts on 19 inch high toilet

From what we saw and discuss here I feel the Signature Hardware 19 inch toilet is a good buy if you are looking for tall toilet to alleviate the inconvenience experienced with age or due to leg problems. It’s also good for situations where mobility is an issue, or if you are a six-footer. The 19″ Stalker is easy on your purse too compared to its other nearest height toilet models.
