8 Short 24 & 25 Inch Depth Toilets (Shortest Depth Toilets)

Sometimes you might need a short 24 inch depth toilet or 25 inch depth toilet. What this means is you have a extremely small space for a toilet. Naturally, you will like to have the smallest toilet or compact toilet to save space and make more legroom.

Unfortunately popular toilet brands and stores don’t offer under 25 inch toilets anymore. But I found a few 25, 24 inch toilets and even a 23 inch toilet on Amazon from some new brands. These are currently the shortest depth toilets for sale in the US today. Lets have a look at these smallest small toilets. They might be just what you need…

Currently, average standard toilet depth is around 28 to 30 inches. Any toilet that is shorter than 28 inches in length is considered as a small compact toilet. Even many models sold as compact toilets for small bathrooms by popular brands like Toto, Kohler and American Standard are at least 26 inches to 28 inches depth. So I consider it fortunate we could find at-least these toilets in the 23, 24 & 25 inch depth range.

Currently the most popular and affordable of these 8 models is the 25 inch Horow Small Toilet #Ad. It looks very similar to Galba toilet and I suspect it’s the same toilet marketed under a different name by a different company. Online reviews for it so far has also been good. So if you want to buy the Galba but don’t want to spend as much I’d recommend going for the Horow toilet.

23 inch Carus Toilet dimensions

The shortest depth toilet in this collection is the 23-inch Carus toilet (Check its Amazon page #Ad). Though not a 24 or 25 inch toilet, I included it in this post because it is the shortest toilet for sale currently in the American market.

Carus toilet is relative newly released toilet (release in Nov 2018) so has little feedback and customer reviews online to judge it. But its sold by the same company that sells the Galba toilet and cost the same. The reviews its got online so far are also good.

As the selling company is good, and their other Galba toilet model is good, I think 23″ Carus toilet will be a great toilet for saving space. It looks nice and of good quality. And as the smallest small toilet you can buy, it will take the lease amount of floor space in your bathroom.

The second smallest toilet in this list is the 24-inch Swiss Madison Sublime II 1-Piece Compact Small Toilet #Ad. It’s cheap for a one-piece toilet and looks nice. But it was launched only about a year ago, so too new to judge quality. So far online reviews have been mixed. Other toilets by Swiss Madison have also got mixed reputations. So, even though its smaller than Harow or Galba and cheaper than Carus, I would be cautious with it.

The most sold of these 8 short toilets is the 24.5 inches long Galba Small Toilet at Amazon #Ad. It has been in the market for over five years now, longer than any other models listed here. It’s well built, flushes well, the seller company customer service is good and online reviews recommend it highly. So can be bought without fear. However its a bit expensive compared to some other models. (I’ve discussed more about Galba toilet below)

If you are okay with a toilet little over 25 inches, then there is a beautiful and popular high-end toilet from KOHLER called the KOHLER San Souci toilet #Ad. It is 25.6 inches long. The speciality of this toilet is it is a short height toilet or technically called low profile toilet. The overall height of San Souci toilet with the tank is just 24.5 inches. That’s a about 3-4 inches shorter than other shallow depth toilet discussed here.

Lastly, if you want a 24 or 25 inch toilet for a 10 inch rough-in, the shortest I found was the 25.8 inch American Standard Colony 221DB.004.020 toilet #Ad. It’s also available in 12 inch rough-in. Different water consumption level models are also available in both 10 & 12 inch rough-in versions. You can get it in 1.6 GPF normal water usage version or the 1.28 GPF High Efficiency toilet version. What has made this toilet very popular is its lower price tag and coming from a well known brand like American Standard.

The above are the 8 shortest depth toilets available for sale in the United State today. They (specially the Galba toilet) are widely used for saving space and creating more leg room in small bathrooms, powder rooms and closet toilets.

The reason for the scarcity of small toilets like 24, 25 inch are new toilet laws like the ADA legislation and minimum toilet space requirements that were introduced in the last few decades. These resulted in an increase in toilet size to comfortable elongated bowls and increases in overall size. That’s the reason average normal toilet depth is around 28-30 inches today.

3 Top 24 inches to 25 Inches Shortest Depth Toilets

In this section I take a more detailed look at Galba, Sublime II and Horow toilets which are the most sold shortest toilets in the market.

24.5 inch Galba Small Toilet

24 inch toiletThe top choice of people looking for a toilet with 24/25 inch depth today is the GALBA SMALL TOILET at Amazon #Ad. At 24.5 inches, it’s 6 inches shorter than a regular toilet. Overall Galba small toilet measures 24.5″ long, 13.5″ wide and 28.5″ high and is a floor mount toilet with an elongated bowl.

Galba toilet is a one-piece compact dual flush toilet. So you get two flush rates which is great for saving water. It’s got a great half flush rate of 0.8 GPF for flushing liquid waste. And a standard 1.6 GPF flush rate for its full flush for solid waste.

The elongated bowl makes it more comfortable to use. When it came into the market few years back it was ground breaking and I was surprised to see elongated bowl in the toilet with the smallest toilet depth at the time. 

When you see the reliability and reputation of Galba small toilet, it is made in China and marketed in the USA by ‘Luxury Modern Home’ a company based in East Hanover, NJ. It has been in the market since 2013 and going by sales on online stores, you can see it has been selling like hot cakes since then. It has also got a very good reputation not only as one of the smallest floor mounted toilet but also as a fully functional compact toilet for small spaces.

24-inch Sublime II 1-Piece Compact Small Toilet

The most affordable shortest toilet in the US today is probably the Sublime II 1-Piece Compact Small Toilet 24″ Long Dual Flush 0.8/1.28 GPF toilet #Ad. It’s a very short projection toilet measuring 24 inches long, 14 inches wide and 28 inches tall.

Size wise and feature wise its similar to most other models I mention here. It’s one is shorter than Galba and Horow toilets but one inch longer than 23″ Carus toilet. But price wise its cheaper than other three and will be my first choice. But still, like I said earlier, the online reviews I found for this model give mixed signals. It was launched in US online stores only around mid-2018, so we’ll have to see how sales goes.

Swiss Madison have a few other beautiful, 26+ inches long one-piece toilet models that have been on sale for much longer than this Sublime II toilet. Those other models are cheaper and feature rich than their similar sized counterparts from Toto, American Standard etc, but they have also have got only mixed reviews.

25 inch HOROW Small Toilet

25 inch toiletThe third smallest toilet is the 25 inches long HOROW Small Toilet. (See Horow toilet on Amazon.com here) The HOROW Small toilet is 25″ Long, 13.4″ Wide and 28.3″ High. The sellers describe it as a “One Piece Short Compact Bathroom Tiny Mini Commode Water Closet Dual Flush Concealed Trapway.”

Horow toilet brand is also a new entry into  the market. Its a Chinese toilet brand and first launch around 2018. Since then they have sold couple of versions this 25″ Horow toilet model online to American public. Many people have bought it online. I saw many had left glowing customer reviews, some even with photos of the Horow toilet they installed, saying they love it and its awesome.

In appearance HOROW looks very much like the Galba toilet. In fact, both looks so alike, I asked a question on one of its older version Amazon pages, asking whether it was the same Galba toilet sold under a different name. The seller “HOROW” responded saying, that the toilet is very similar to the Galba small toilet, but not completely same. They claimed there are little difference in the size and look. Price wise, HOROW toilet is much cheaper than Galba. Its quality and flushing seems good if you go by online reviews.

So, these three are the top toilet models you find today that are in the range of 24 inches to 25 inches. Many people looking for even 23 inch toilets have bought these toilets because there is no shorter toilet (though now we have the new 23″ Carus toilet) or going for an expensive wall mount toilet remodel or an electric Upflush Macerating toilet.

There are no toilets that measure exactly 24 or 25 inches in depth. These models are bit shorter or longer than 25 inches yet ideal for a 24 or 25 inch toilet requirement.

Small 25 to 26 Inch Depth Toilets

However, if you are okay with a toilet with a depth between 25 to 27 inches, you have a few more toilet models to choose from including toilets from the well known top brands like Kohler and Toto.

KOHLER one of the top 3 toilet brands also has a model in the 25 inch length toilet range. Its the 25.625 inches long KOHLER San Souci K-4007-0. This is a round-front toilet with a 1.28 GPF flush rate. Its overall dimensions are 25.625 inches in length, 14.5 inches width and 24.25 inches tall. I mentioned above the speciality of this toilet being a low height toilet.

Unlike other small toilet models mentioned here the 25.6 inch Kohler San Sauci is speciality designed as compact high-end toilet. Because of this design and elegance, this toilet fits well in medium to large bathrooms. Most other small toilets models are designed for small bathrooms and small spaces. So others here when installed on a large bathroom will not match and look out of place.

The Duravit Stark line of toilets come in many variations and one of them is the close coupled Duravit 0128090000 Starck 3 Toilet. It measures 25.8 inches in depth and can be another option for you. However I couldn’t find any customer feedback for this model.

Compact 26 to 28 Inch Toilets

Normally when people look for toilets they want to buy one from one of the top 3 Toilet brands of Toto, Kohler or American Standard. Unfortunately except for the Kohler model mentioned above there are no other toilets shorter than 26 inches from these top 3 brands. But if your toilet can accommodate a bit bigger toilet, there are several good 26 inch toilets to choose from.

The smallest Toto toilet is the TOTO Drake 1.6 GPF Round Bowl 2 Piece Toilet with E-Max Flush System with Model No. CST743SR#01. This Toto Drake model measures 26.375 inches lengthwise, 19.5 inches wide and 28.5 tall overall. Its known as great flushing toilet and has received very good toilet ratings.

The shortest American Standard toilet is a bit than the short Toto Drake. Its the 26.75 inches long American Standard 2887218.020 H2Option Siphonic toilet. Its a dual flush toilet with a normal height seat and elongated toilet bowl design.

However even these 26″ plus toilet models from the top 3 toilet brands can become longer when installed. That’s because when you install them on a standard 12 inch toilet rough-in, they become 27.5 inches or more with the tank clearance distance they leave from the wall.

In addition to these there is also a 26.5 inch Swiss Madison Ivy one-piece toilet. Its a dual flush model with 0.8/1.28 GPF flush rate and measures 26.5″ depth, 14″ width and 29″ height.

So overall the Galba small toilet is your best choice if you want a 24 inch toilet or a 25 inch length toilet model.

Update: Since writing this I did a more in-depth and detailed research and created a post with a ultimate list of over 15 smallest toilets. You can check it out at 15+ Smallest Small Toilets with Shortest Toilet Depth.

14 Comments on “8 Short 24 & 25 Inch Depth Toilets (Shortest Depth Toilets)”

  1. Hi there…we’re desperately searching for a compact, 24/25” depth 10” rough in toilet, at any price level…can’t find one. Any thoughts for us? Many thanks. C.

    1. Hi Popa,
      The shortest 10 inch rough-in toilet I have come across so for is the 25.8 inches long American Standard Colony toilet which ismentioned and linked to in the above article.

      If the Colony is too big for your space, I’m afraid you’ll have to look at alternative methods. One options would be to convert your 10-inch rough-in into a 12-inch rough-in by using a toilet offset flange. Then you’ll be able to install the 24.5 inch Galba toilet. To install offset flange, you’ll have to break the floor a little and dig out the existing flange. Its not that difficult, plumbers do it often. But before using a offset flange, just check your local building codes, some don’t allow the use of offset flanges. A local plumber will be able to advice if you are doubtful.

      Another option is, if a door is preventing you from installing a longer toilet, then you can change the swing door to a pocket door and then install a longer toilet. Hope this helps.


  2. Hi… are there any small back outlet toilets?

    I’m not sure exact name for this type of toilets, rear outlet toilet? Anyway suggestions?

  3. I’m looking for the shortest depth toilet. I’m surprised a 24 inch toilet is the shortest toilet for sale today! Surely there are smaller toilets!!! There are many old homes with cramped small baths with 22 inch toilets and 23 inch toilets. If they can make so small toilets then, they should be able to make even smaller toilets now.

    1. There are several reasons for the lack of smaller toilets than 24/25 inches in the US. One of it is the increase in the size and height of people in the last century. Average American male and female height and size has increase several inches from 1900s to 2000s. Small toilets that were designed and sold in 1950s or 60s are no longer enough for today’s average American male to use. So toilet companies picked this trend and design accordingly to demand.

      The other reasons are the minimum toilet clearance laws and new ADA legislation’s that came into effect in last few decades. These resulted in an increase in toilet size to comfortable elongated bowls and increases in overall size.

  4. looking for a 25inch in depth – from wall to front
    but it needs to be at least 15 high from floor to top of rim

  5. Hi Aksam,

    Thank you very much for the post. Do you have any recommendations for small/compact toilets that fit 11 inch rough-in among these? I read your 11 inch rough-in post as well, but I also need to find a shorter depth (not height) toilet.

    1. Hi June,
      From what I could find online, I’m afraid only the American Standard colony toilet in the 10 inch rough-in model will fit a 11 inch rough-in.

      Another option is try to install a 1-inch offset toilet flange on your toilet drain hole and make it a 12″ rough-in. If you can make your rougin into a 12″ this way you’ll be able to buy any model listed here. Installing a offset flange is a small job for a good plumber.

  6. We are looking for a toilet that has at least 9-inch clearance on the base of the toilet to the wall. We need to clear a baseboard heat element. The toilet can be a 12-inch rough-in (the tank can go back 12 inches) and not necessarily a small toilet, we just need to clear that baseboard and all of the toilets we’ve seen go very far back to the wall on their base. Any ideas?

  7. Looking at Toto unifit compatible toilets since I have a 14″ rough in. Anyone know which Toto model (unifit style) has the shortest protrusion to front? Thanks!

  8. Hi Aksam, Love your column.
    Please help me. Must replace TOILET. I can NOT find what I need with room limitations.
    There is a ‘banjo shelf’ across whole room that also surrounds the sink.
    Bottom of SHELF is 30 “ from floor. 6” deep at narrow end above toilet.
    So, I need a toilet no more than 27” HIGH.
    I have a 10” ROUGH-In.
    If I can’t find a toilet with these limitations, is it OK to have a unifit ADAPTOR with a 12” Rough In new toilet for a 10” Rough In? Are Adaptors sturdy?
    I found the Carolina II at Toto on line, but no one can sit on TOTO LIDs.
    I do NOT want a ‘Soft Close’ toilet LID because I sit on lid to take my blood pressure etc. Toto said NEVER SIT on LIDS as they will break.
    (Currently I have a wood lid but now on a toilet that needs replacing ASAP. Toilet brand is Crane but Crane closed.)
    I have space in front of toilet to opposite wall. (No door in way.)
    SPACE – 6” to tub, 9 inches to sink cabinet, 32” to opposite wall.
    If you know of a toilet I can use, PLEASE help me, and also what LID can I buy for it? NO Soft-Close lid.
    In CA so must be 1.28 GPF.
    Easy to replace tank parts if needed.

    I thought this Toto may be OK as a compromise until Toto said I can NOT sit on TOTO LID:
    TOTO CAROLINA II One-Piece High Efficiency Toilet, 1.28 GPF MS644114CEF
    THANK YOU so much,
    As a bonus, ELONGATED seat is good. ADA seat height is nice. (I am disabled.)
