Signature Hardware Toilet Reviews – Full Comparisons

Doing a renovation and still haven’t found a toilet that fits or suits your needs? It’s understandable given the size, technology, flushing system, and even brand variety on the market.

So if you want to make a choice you’ll be happy with, you can always start by looking at toilets from some of the best manufacturers. Signature Hardware fits this moniker due to its impressive lineup of elegant, durable, and efficient toilet systems.

The level of performance, comfort, and affordability you can find is nothing short of impressive. But to avoid going through an exhausting list of choices, we’ve prepared a four-item review by analyzing the manufacturer’s most popular items.

Signature Hardware Toilet Comparisons

We’ll focus on the following Signature Hardware toilets:

  1. Signature Hardware Bradenton
  2. Signature Hardware Stalnaker
  3. Signature Hardware Key West
  4. Signature Hardware Regent

Bradenton

Tall, yet flexible build.

Toilet TypeWater UsageDimensions (in.)MaterialSeat HeightWeight
One-piece, Elongated1.28 GPF29 x 17 x 34Porcelain20 ½ inches119 lbs

The Bradenton model sits 21-inches tall and is the definition of elegance by simplicity. The two-piece toilet looks great in any bathroom setting with its elongated shape, white porcelain bowl, and chrome finish.

You can get the Signature Hardware Bradenton with a regular seat or a bidet seat if you’re looking to add an additional inch to the seating height.

One of its most remarkable features is the cleaning system. Self-cleaning spray nozzles come in a water-saving design and have sufficient holes for a smooth cleansing experience. Furthermore, the toilet boasts a side knob that enables the user to adjust the angle and water pressure of the cleaning system and switch between different presets.

Both the standard and bidet seats feature a self-closing system which is convenient. What’s even more appealing is that certain Bradenton models are available with 10-, 12-, and 14-inch rough-ins, making it even more flexible for a wide range of bathroom renovation projects.

Its low price is also a good selling point, mainly since it’s challenging to find a cleaning system in this pricing category.

Users might appreciate the 25-year limited warranty, which isn’t something you get every day. However, the comfortable elongated shape and extra seat height make this a reliable choice.

One thing that could be considered a possible drawback derives from the added bowl height. The water level is slightly lower, and occasional splashing could occur, even with the horizontal swirling action of the flushing system.

Pros and Cons of the Bradenton

  • Good price to performance ratio
  • EcoClean option
  • Ergonomic design
  • Flexible construction options
  • Light splashing

Stalnaker

Affordable and comfortable.

Toilet TypeWater UsageDimensions (in.)MaterialSeat HeightWeight
Two-piece, Elongated/ Round1.6 GPF28.56 x 17.68 x 33.43Porcelain18 ⅛ inches93 lbs

The Signature Hardware Stalnaker toilet comes in at just under 93 pounds. It has a standard gravity-fed flushing system with plenty of power capable of using up to 1.6 GPF. Although it may not have the highest water efficiency rating, it’s still miles ahead in water consumption compared to traditional toilets.

Users can appreciate a siphon jet flush that does an excellent job of cleaning the bowl and eliminating waste. In addition, the two-piece configuration shouldn’t pose any installation problems.

The soft-close seat is an excellent addition, although it’s an optional feature. Unfortunately, unlike with other models, the seat isn’t included in the base price of the Stalnaker.

The same thing goes for the bidet seat, which buyers have to select when placing an order. Either way, the already low price of the Stalnaker makes either choice an affordable one.

While the water efficiency might not be on the higher end of the spectrum, given other Signature Hardware models, the level of comfort and quiet operation compensate for that minor drawback.

Although the seat is not much higher than the universal standard, it is higher than the usual seat, making it a more ergonomic toilet. As a result, it should be an excellent fit for people with bad knees and other mobility issues. It should also minimize any potential splashing issues from the more powerful 1.6 GPF system.

Pros and Cons of the Stalnaker

  • Straightforward installation
  • Quiet seat and flushing system
  • Great warranty
  • Powerful siphon jet flush
  • No wax ring
  • Midrange water efficiency

Key West

Flushing power and option-rich.

Toilet TypeWater UsageDimensions (in.)MaterialSeat HeightWeight
Elongated, One and Two-piece1.28 GPF28 ¾ x 18 ⅛ x 31 ¾Porcelain16 ¾ inches97.3 lbs

Designed to fit any modern bathroom, this Signature Hardware Key West toilet model has traditional white porcelain and chrome hardware finish. In addition, you’re able to choose from skirted (model 948434) and a visible trapway design (model 948433). Very good water consumption efficiency as well, due to using only 1.28 GPF.

A toilet seat is included, but Signature Hardware also offers an optional bidet seat option. This would elevate the bowl height by an extra inch and increase the level of comfort. Aside from its glossy finish, the seat comes with protective bumpers and a self-closing mechanism.

The Key West model doesn’t sacrifice performance instead of being conservative regarding water usage. Although it can be up to 20% more efficient than most standard modern toilets, the flushing system boasts a 1000 MaP score and has plenty of power to dispose of waste.

Besides, the 1.28 GPF rating is quickly becoming the preferred standard in most homes.

Being a mid-range-priced toilet doesn’t mean that the good features stop here. Signature Hardware also equipped this model with a cleaning system. As such, there’s a self-cleaning antibacterial nozzle installed that operates on the same water-saving principle as the flushing mechanism.

The nozzle’s multiple holes ensure a soft dispersal pattern and a comfortable cleanse. Using the side knob, the users can adjust the water volume and angle and change the cleansing type based on personal preference.

Homeowners might also consider the Key West model due to the many other complementary bathroom features available in the same collection. This is easily the kind of toilet you can build a whole bathroom around without worrying about how everything will work together.

Pros and Cons of the Key West

  • Great options to choose from
  • Reasonable price range
  • Great warranty
  • 1000 MaP score
  • Room for a better flapper design

Regent

Dual flush and affordable.

Toilet TypeWater UsageDimensions (in.)MaterialSeat HeightWeight
Elongated, One and Two-piece1.6 /0.8 GPF29½ x 19 x 32½Porcelain16 inches104 lbs

Some of the features of the Signature Hardware Regent aren’t new. For example, it’s easy to see similarities between this model’s washing mechanism with the adjustable spray nozzle that’s antibacterial, self-cleaning, and easily removed for maintenance purposes.

A matching toilet seat is included and has the expected soft-closing mechanism. It’s the next best thing after an automatic seat as it adds convenience while also extending the seat’s lifespan.

Should buyers choose the optional bidet seat, they can expect the same type of system only with a more comfortable and slightly higher positioned seat.
Because of the elongated bowl design, the Regent has a more ergonomic feel than your standard rounded toilet.

As with most Signature Hardware models, this one also presents itself with a siphon jet flushing system. However, unlike other alternatives on this list, the Regent has a different configuration.

It offers users the option between using .8 and 1.6 GPF. A dual-flush system is always a great addition, especially when the highest setting exceeds 1.3 GPF. Under optimal usage, the Regent should average at around 1.28 GPF or better, making it a good water saver.

If there’s one thing to nitpick at, it’s the occasional stuck dual-flush button, as the minimal customization options don’t really matter.

Pros and Cons of the Regent

  • Dual flush
  • Reasonable price
  • Great warranty
  • ADA compliant and WaterSense certified
  • Average flush button design

Final Recommendation

Consumers buy toilet models for various reasons. But whether to wrap up a renovation, save water, or solve some other issue, certain brands tend to edge out the competition. Signature Hardware should fit the bill if you’re in the market for something simple, stylish, yet with enough modern engineering.

Out of the manufacturer’s top products, we feel that the Bradenton model covers all bases. First, it’s not too big or too small and lends itself to any bathroom configuration. Second, installing the toilet isn’t challenging, which makes it even better.

We appreciate the cleaning spray nozzle’s adjustable settings and ease of removal for cleaning and maintenance purposes. Furthermore, the customization options that fit any 10-, 12-, or 14-inch rough-in make it an attractive and conveniently priced bathroom fixture.

Opting for the EcoClean variant is also an excellent way to go, and you can also enjoy a 25-year warranty either way.

If you’re having trouble finding a good balance of features, performance, and water efficiency, the Signature Hardware Bradenton could be the one for you.
