Why You Want a Great Toilet Seat
Where do you find your toilet seats? A lot of people regard the smallest room in the house to be the most important one! Not only is the toilet a room necessary for important bodily functions and personal hygiene, it is also a room where some people spend quite a lot of time. I know some people – mainly men it has to be said – that keep a big pile of magazines in their lavatory or take in the daily newspaper crossword puzzle or their Sudoku books and stay in there for hours.
So whether or not your toilet is in a separate room or is located in your bathroom, you want it to look stylish and contemporary as well as being comfortable and the quickest and best way to do this is to find a great toilet seat. There is a huge range of toilet seats available and one of the best places to find the perfect one for your bathroom is online. Amazon has an amazing range of toilet seats and toilet seat lids to choose from, so if you are moving into a new house, redecorating or just fancy a change, then have a look online today and find that great toilet seat for your bathroom.
Choose from white, black or coloured toilet seats, traditional wooden ones for a more vintage look, novelty toilet seats, trainer toilet seats especially for toddlers or jazz up your old lid with a funky toilet tattoo!
White, Black and Coloured Toilet Seats
Do you remember the avocado, dark brown or even raspberry coloured bathroom suites that were popular during the 1970’s? Well thankfully the trend has now shifted back to having white sanitary ware in our lavatories and bathroom, whether or not you like a vintage Victorian or Edwardian look or prefer a super-modern, trendy bathroom suite and toilet. If you are thinking of getting a new toilet seat, you usually buy a unit that comprises of the seat and the lid held together with hinges.
Also you need to check whether or not you need a round seat or an elongated seat. Hygiene is a big consideration in the lavatory, so also you ensure that you buy one that is easy to clean. You can also buy toilet seats these days that incorporate a quiet-close function, so that they cannot be slammed down. Not only are these quiet-close seats quieter, but they are also safer and very hygienic.
As a lot of sanitary ware is white you may well choose to have a matching white polypropylene toilet seat that is comfortable and easy to clean. You can also have toilet seats in black that look very striking in contrast with a white bathroom suite, or coloured seats like pink, blue or green. If you really like your comfort, you can even buy a padded toilet seat!
Traditional Wooden Toilet Seats
If you have a very traditional lavatory or bathroom, you may want to consider choosing an old-fashioned wooden lavatory seat. You can get wooden toilet seats in a variety of wood finishes, such as oak, dark bamboo or cherry. The smooth finish to most of these wooden lavatory seats ensures that they do not crack or warp, and are easy to clean, and the wood is often accented by the use of brass or nickel hinges. Wooden toilet seats are usually easy to fit and as they are very sturdy do not wobble when sat on.
Novelty Toilet Seats
If you would like to make a statement in your smallest room and have a bright and cheerful toilet, you may choose to buy a novelty toilet seat. They come in a wide range of colours and designs, so you can have seashells, dolphins, leopard skin, and penguins on your lavatory seat, embroidered padded seats or even an LED toilet seat that gives your family and guests a light show when they use the facilities. Novelty toilet seats can be great fun and can brighten up the smallest room in the house, so go online and choose your favourite one today!
However, if you like to change the look of your bathroom or lavatory frequently, or if you redecorate and do not want the expense or bother of replacing your toilet seat and lid, then maybe the answer is buying some toilet tattoos. Toilet tattoos are decorative appliqués in a range of colours and designs that you can affix to your lavatory seat and instantly transform your bathroom. You can remove and reuse them, so you can change the design frequently and feel like you have a whole new bathroom. They can be applied to any smooth toilet seat lid, and can be bought to fit either round or elongated lavatories. Toilet tattoos are also very hygienic as they can be easily wiped clean with a gentle cleanser.
Potty Seat or Toilet Trainer
For the smallest people in the house you may want to buy a toilet trainer seat. These soft potty seats are designed to fit securely onto an adult lavatory and make it easier for your toddler to safely and comfortably make the transition from using a potty to using the toilet. Potty seats come in a range of bright colours and many different designs such as Dora the Explorer and Disney characters. They generally have removable soft cushions that can be taken off for effective cleaning, and handles that your toddler can hold onto for extra security.
So you can choose to have a great and comfortable toilet seat that complements your bathroom or make a loud, bright statement to add some fun to your bathroom suite. So have a look online today and find the perfect toilet seat.
