Consider this before buying a toilet seat:

There are a few things you need to check out before you buy a toilet seat apart from its designs, so that it fit on your toilet well and allows a comfortable use.


  • The toilet seat that you buy should be according the shape and size of your toilet pan. If the toilet pan is standard size you can very well choose a standard toilet seat else measure the dimensions and check out the shape of the brim of your toilet pan and buy your seat accordingly.


  • Many times a wrong choice of toilet seat results in a wobbly and uncomfortable experience in the toilet. To avoid enduring this uncomfortable situation and bring in some comfort in your toilets see to it that the toilet seat hinges that come along with the seat are sturdy and fit well. Buying soft close toilet seats is the best option as they will not snap shut or wobble on the pan.


  • If you have kids who need potty training go for toilet seats that have an extra attachment for the child. Such family toilet seats will help your child learn to use the toilet easily and without your assistance.

If you have a pristine white bathroom, do not consider buying a colourful bright seat. It will be shocker in the bathroom rather than being an element of accent. For an otherwise pain looking bathroom using a novelty toilet seat will add some fun into your bathrooms and cloakrooms by using novelty toilet seats. The toilet has a close proximity with water and to make it symbolic and colourful; adding aqua or ocean themed accessories and toilet seats is the perfect choice.


There are various aqua themed toilet seats like the starfish seat, the dolphin and the underwater themed toilet seats. You can also match up the toilets seat theme with many other bathroom accessories like the shower curtains and the bath mats to give a themed and synchronized interior to the bathroom.


If you wish to add an accent colour in your toilet you can also choose colours like blue and hot pink for toilet seats, shower curtain, bath mats and various other bathroom accessories. There are colourful toilet seats available in various colours with sparkle and glitter and also with water droplets effect.


Choose the best quality and the finest designs for your bathroom and make it look chic and stylish and absolutely great to use.
