Been real happy with Kohler Wellworth toilets - latest two for the rentals were $118 each last month complete from Lowes. The new ones are 3" flush valve and a new design for the bowl with a super strong little deep area for flush and large shallow bowl design. Elongated would be nicer and a bit more$$, tall is nicer yet - don't know if they are available in Wellworth design.

Just did 2 bathrooms :

Things I like:
Gerber Comfort height toilets - 1.6 gpf
Slowmotion-close toilet seats - entertaining for some people and makes it more likely the seat and lid will be lowered..
Kohler 6ft soaking tub - deeper wider longer - can do the sidestroke now

Walk in shower - 6 feet of 3.5 ft built-up stone tiled wall topped by 3.5ft sheet of thick clear glass with entrance at end away from shower with towel rack and water control inside at entrance
Rain bucket shower

Silestone counters
Dimmer lighting including over tub and shower with recessed areas for candles
Kohler sinks and fixtures
Custom tongue and groove cherrywood cabinets and closets
Vent fans
Radiant heating
Anderson obscured bathroom windows
Slate and ceramic tiles on floors
Ceramic and stone tiles on walls

Bathroom Satisfaction has risen 120% or so

And immediately throw away those cheap brass-colored toilet anchors that come with every toilet and buy some real brass anchors and nuts. You know you'll need to take the toilet off again someday, so it's a labor saver to use hardware that won't rust/corrode.
