Can't live without 'em
Toilet suites are a necessity in every home. These days there are often two or three in the house and they really don't have to be the dingy old thing you prefer to ignore, the old cracked pink thing up the path near the laundry. There are many beautifully modern designs built to compliment the rest of a supurb bathroom renovation. Or, if you are keeping to a more traditional theme, there are great options here too.
Things, other than asthetics, that should be considered include comfort and cleaning. Are the springs in the knees not what they were? Why not cater for that. How about a toilet suite that has a seat that's a little higher than normal, it's called an ""Ambulant"" pan. Easy to sit down, easy to stand back up. There's no shame in including comfort in your bathroom, powder room or ensuite.
City living and population density has made it critical that we consider the resources we are using, and one resource we just can't live without is water. Every toilet in Australia must be Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) rated and this rating appears on a WELS label on the unit with a star rating. The more stars, the more efficient. Most toilets these days are 4 star rated and with dual flush, using 3 litres for the "yellow" and 4.5 litres for the more serious business. This gives an average flush of 3.3L (average flush is calculated as one full flush and four half-flushes). If you see a toilet without the WELS label, don't buy it as your licensed plumber won't install it (cos it ain't legal).
When it comes to cleaning, there are great modern options too. Standard pans are all very good, but rimless flush, with the smooth easy to clean rim, is all the rage at present. There's also nanoglaze which is a ceramic glaze that's super slippery so "stuff" don't stick. Ease of cleaning built right into the toilet ceramic. Another popular design is tornado flush, which creates, you guessed it, a "tornado" to flush everything down. Not that you want to stand and gaze at yesterday's dinner disappearing, but it is pretty impressive.

No WELS sticker, no buy
Consider higher ambulant toilets if the knee springs aren't what they were
