Bring on the small, yet powerful, toilets that allow you to save space and still sit down in style. Oh, and yes, you will also save lots of water as well! When I started doing this list nearly ten years ago, this was a novel category. It is no longer.

Our reader favorites continue to be these brands: Toto, Duravit and Kohler, and while there's still debate about the higher prices for these toilets and problems with "streaking" they seem to be generally winning people over. I'm curious to see what you all will say today, fully two years later???

Check out the full list after the jump...

This is the contentious leader of the pack. Reader rave about it and they also complain a bit about "streaking" and installation. It comes three ways: one piece, two-piece and wall hung. For those of you who have space problems from the tip of the toilet to something else, keep in mind that this one has an elongated bowl which is comfortable, but will run you 27.5 inches from the wall on the one and two piece models.

At the more affordable end of the Toto spectrum I found the Entrada, which has a round bowl and not an elongated one, coming in at just over 26 inches from the wall. It has a super cute little tank and is 100% Toto.

This is a very classy and popular low slung tank and one-piece design. Reminds me of American Hustle. The Rialto is never cheap!

A little more affordable, but also super compact, the Santa Rosa comes in one or two-piece and is the most attractive - IMHO - of their offerings on that end of the price spectrum.

The very first Starck design for Duravit that made toilets modern and changed what people would pay forever, this original #1 design is classic.

The latest Starck design, but with a much more accessible price tag, the Starck 3 comes in many variation and will only set you back 25 inches from the wall.

With Porcher no longer being offered in this country, American Standard has replaced importing that brand with their own European inspired bathroom line, including the svelte Lyndon. Definitely a luxury model, it comes with dual flush, EverClean surface cleaning (no streaking and easy cleaning) and a slow close seat.

From Australia, where they know about water conservation, comes their popular Sydney toilet. It comes in many styles, all of them dual flush (this is their speciality) and with compact designs. Excellent comment below with only one reservation.

I put this forward because I love the comment and others have discovered this as well. The Alexis only seems to be available at Sam's Club.
