From industrial-chic to updated traditional styles, manufacturers have been busy introducing stylish components for the modern, personalized bathroom. Dual-flush options offer flexibility for conservation-minded consumers, while enhanced bowl designs make for easy cleaning and maintenance.--C.K.

Gerber. Pressure-assist flushing and unique siphon-jet action, along with an enhanced trapway design, allow the Ultra Flush 1.0 GPF toilet to use just 1 gallon per flush. The low-consumption toilet offers superior waste removal and bowl cleaning, the maker says. Offered in one- and two-piece designs, it's available in a number of colors and styles including a Comfort Fit 17-inch model. 847.675.6570. Circle 101.


Duravit. The Starck X Collection toilet's bold, square lines make a style statement in the bath. High-gloss white ceramic enhances the look. A discreet button flush sits atop the cistern, and the seat features stainless steel hinges and Soft-Close automatic closure. A wall-mounted version is also available. 888.387.2848. Circle 100.


TOTO. The latest in dual-flush toilets is the Aquia. Stylish and spare, it boasts an easy-maintenance skirted bowl and a dual-button flush actuator integrated into the lid. The button allows the user to flush with 1.6 or 0.9 gallons. Its washdown system directs all of the water through the rim to keep the bowl clean. The company predicts that the Aquia will save 20% more water than an ultra-low flow toilet. 800.350.8686. Circle 102.


Kohler. The company's Class Five flushing technology has been expanded to its Cimarron Comfort Height one-piece toilet. The Class Five system provides excellent bulk flushing performance using 1.6 or 1.4 gallons of water per flush--the Cimarron has a dual-flush option. The chair-height toilet also features the Cachet quiet-close, quick-release seat. 800.456.4537. Circle 103.


Eljer. The Titan 17-inch, 1.6-gallon toilet boasts the ProOne flushing system. The system has dual-action siphon-jet channels, a 3-inch flush valve, and a 2 1/8-inch fully glazed trapway. Stabilizer bars keep the tank from rocking on the bowl, while a sanitary bar keeps liquids from flowing underneath the tank. Double-wall packaging provides extra protection for the toilet on its way to the jobsite. 800.423.5537. Circle 104.
