Making a list is a great place to start when you’re making a decision. Write down what people will be using the toilet and things you wish were easier. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Is it a master, guest, or kids’ toilet? A seat with built-in features like a nightlight is great for the kids’ bathroom. A seat with a built-in air freshener for the master or guest bath.
  • Want to bring a spa-like experience home? Check out cleansing seats with bidet functionality. They introduce a different kind of comfort and clean.
  • Getting ready for potty training? Look for unique seats that are comfortable for both adults and toddlers. They’ll make potty training easier on everyone.


Tips to remember

After you’ve decided what seat you’d like, there are a few things to remember before you place an order. Find out if your toilet is “elongated” or “round.” You can’t put a round toilet seat on an elongated toilet and vice versa! Also, make sure the seat you choose fits 100% to your particular toilet model. There are slight differences between manufacturers, kind of like shopping for jeans! Additionally, look at the color of your toilet and be sure order the matching seat for the best look.
