I have a powder room with very limited space and I'm hoping there is a
way to push the toilet back further to the wall. The drain is in the
standard place and I would like to keep it there, but I am hoping
there there exists a toilet that utilaizes the drain in the standard
location, but is set further back. Perhaps a old/antique European
style toilet with the water tank up on top. My attempts to find
something like that have turned up nothing.
You'll have to check the manufacturer's specs to verify a particular
toilet, but as odd as it seems, a longer rough in distance would
probably move the toilet back. Most likely your existing toilet has a
12" rough in, so you'd look at 14" rough in toilets. Then you'd have
to cut a recess in the wall behind the toilet - assuming that's even
possible. That would eliminate mucking about with the offset toilet
flange that dpb mentions.
