5: Kent Stacking Commode

The Kent stacking commode is an excellent budget commode that while not the best looking commode available, it serves it’s purpose well and as well as being suitable in the home, it will work well in a care home environment where it can be stacked.

The padded back and seat of this commode chair add to the comfort of this chair and only the arms are not padded.

4: Tapestry Design Commode

The tapestry design commode chair is an excellent commode and although quite expensive it really is a very good looking chair.  The material wipes down for those little accidents.  The build quality of this chair is exceptional and included on this list for that very reason.  Whilst not being a cheap commode, this chairs’ build quality and the fact that it will fit into any home or care home environment makes this a must include on this list.

The pan is removable and has a handle for easy emptying.

3: Viva Folding Commode

Quite like the Kent chair in design and looks, the Viva is an excellent budget commode.  Whilst it is certainly a cheap commode, it’s supportive back and removable seat, large pan and incredibly strong frame make the Viva one of the very best commodes available.

The Viva commode has excellent feedback from customers, who comment on its budget price and how lightweight it is.

2: Mobile Commode

I wanted to include a mobile commode on this list to round it out, so I consider the mobile commode by Elite Care the best one available.

Sometimes the commode will need to be moved around, such as into the bathroom or a different room downstairs.  The mobile commode can be used over a normal sized toilet without the pan in place.  The arms fold down to allow easy transfer to a wheelchair, bed or chair.

The mobile commode has rear locking brakes so it can be parked when it doesn’t need to mobile.

1: Basket Weave Commode

The basket weave commode in our opinion is best in class.  Its design means that it will blend to any home setting without standing out like a sore thumb like most commodes do.

The seat of the basket weave commode is wipe down and the pan is removable.  As the commode is so lightweight it is easily movable between rooms and overall it has great feedback and reviews from customers who comment on its good looks and how well made it is.
