Are there any drawbacks to comfort height toilets?

Unfortunately, comfort toilets may not be ideal for everyone. The elevated seat may seem to provide great comfort but if you don’t need it, the traditional height may be enough. Experts also believe that higher toilet seats may cut off circulation to the legs, especially when the legs are not touching the ground. Comfort seats may be confusing to kids. For this reason, you need to be sure where the toilet will be installed and who exactly will be using it. Since kids are much shorter, it will be quite difficult for them to hold their feet on the toilet floor, which can be quite dangerous, especially when they lose their balance. For this reason, comfort height toilets are suitable for averagely tall to above averagely tall persons. The drawbacks of comfort height toilets cannot be compared to their benefits, especially when they are installed for the right kind of people.
