A practical buy for the home, toilet seats are typically designed as a top-hinged unit in an oval, round or D-shape to be attached to a toilet seat to provide both comfortable seating and a lid closure. Usually made from materials including wood, anti-static plastics or ceramic, toilet seats can be purchased in standard white and black plus neutral colours such as brown, grey or beige to coordinate with your interior scheme. Find quality high toilet seats from manufacturers including WENKO, GROHE and Duravit.
Most toilet seats include all fittings and incorporate special features for easy use. Soft close actions, durable top-fixing stainless hinges and quick release mechanisms make for fuss-free installation and cleaning. In addition, toilet seats are often ergonomically designed for comfort and many feature padded elements for extra softness.
Some toilet seats also include essential mobility aids such as lidless ring seats for those less able-bodied. Toilet seats with lightweight frames are ideal for those who may have difficulty lowering onto or rising from a standard toilet. Colour contrasting toilet seats have satin finishes in unconventional bright colours which can assist disorientated users.
Family bathrooms will benefit from 3-part toilet seats which include a smaller unbreakable and removable child's seat which fits inside a standard sized seat. Some toilets seats also have child locks which prevent little ones from opening up the toilet seat when not in use.
