Choosing a Toilet Seat: 101

When it comes to fixtures in your home, the most important of them all is your toilet. From a smart toilet (yes, they do exist) to a standard toilet, it’s important to find a seat that will work best for your lifestyle. If you’re not sure of how to choose the proper toilet seat, then here is a simple guide to making the process easy:

Material

Before you purchase your new toilet seat, it’s important to decide on what type of material you’d like to have. Although there is the standard plastic seat, toilet seats can also be made of wood, too. Depending on the decor of your bathroom, you can certainly choose a toilet seat based on looks — or for more practical purposes, comfort. If you decide to choose a classic, plastic toilet seat, it will be much lighter to lift and will be simple to clean. In addition, a plastic toilet seat will come in a variety of colors and patterns that could match perfectly with your bathroom’s overall look. However, if you choose a wooden toilet seat, then the seat itself will be warmer (naturally) and a bit more sturdy — since it’s made of actual wood. Just like plastic toilet seats, a wooden toilet seat can come in a variety of patterns and stains, too. No matter which of the two you choose, there is never a right or wrong toilet seat option for your bathroom!

Price

When it comes to toilet seats, think of the product as an investment piece. The more money you invest in the seat, the longer the lifespan will be. Regardless, it is a great idea to replace your toilet seat if it’s starting to break or has been in use for quite some time. If you’re looking to purchase a toilet seat at a higher price than a wooden seat will be the perfect choice for you. If you’re looking to save some funds, or don’t prefer a wooden toilet seat, then a plastic seat will be the best bet. Overall, when it comes to choosing the perfect seat for your porcelain throne, it’s important to choose one that you deem will be the most comfortable and practical. Again, despite what toilet seat you decide to choose, it will the perfect fit for your bathroom and toilet — which is the most important!
