Decorative Toilet Seats Novelty Bathroom Ideas

Updated on May 29, 2013

Novelty Toilet Seats To Decorate The Bathroom

Simple Decorative Toilet Seats can add a new dimension to your bathroom, bringing personality, style and color. From a simple floral design to themed beach toilet seats, your bathroom will get a new unique look that compliments your current bathroom theme.

I first came across one of these decorative toilet seats while staying in a motel for work. I wasn't expecting to walk into the bathroom and go 'wow' that's cool. It was a simple beach themed seat and cover with Starfish, shells and sand (Image to the left). When your use to seeing the plain old boring white toilet seat, something as decorative as this really stands out. It gave the boring bathroom a bit of character and the wow factor.

Because I was intrigued by the design and pattern of this motel toilet seat I just had to look into how many other types of funky toilet seats are available. I couldn't really put my finger on which seat was the best, so I just compiled a list of my favorite Unique Toilet Seats which can be found below.

Floral & Decorative Toilet Seats For The Bathroom - Add Style & Personality With These Flower Designs

My partner loves these floral flower designs and to be honest, most of them will actually suit our bathroom décor. But don't tell her I said that, because I personally much prefer the ocean theme toilet seats and I've almost got her convinced the ocean style is the way to go. But that's just my preference and as we are all different in every way, these floral seats might be exactly what your after to finish your project.

Seashell Toilet Seats - Novelty Shell Ideas For The Loo

My 3 year old Daughter loves collecting seashells on the beach, which is why I started thinking about beach and seashell designs for toilet seats. I didn't realize how detailed these are and the fact some even use real shells is amazing. I think my Daughter might finally have a use for all these shells she's collecting over the hotter months.

This Seashell Toilet Seat will fit all standard 17 inch rims. Easy to install with step by step instructions. Because it's on the cheaper end of the market, you can opt to buy stronger hinges and bolts for extra durability.


Attention to detail is amazing on this shell and seahorse toilet seat. So much so that the shells themselves are actually real. This is probably my favorite beach edition. It fits standard round seat and measures 14.5 inches x 16 inches. Available in 4 different colors including the pictured clear model, pink, green and blue. This design is probably the closest I found to the toilet seat I stumbled across in the motel. It's definitely one I will consider whether it be for our bathroom now or if we ever move house.
