Of course, not every toilet seat is the same. If you want your toilet lid to last a really long time, you should pay attention to the quality and durability when making a purchase. But there are other details that should be taken into account when buying a new toilet seat. The following are also important:
As well as the size, the shape of your new toilet seat must of course also be right for the toilet. Although a square toilet seat may have the same measurements as an oval seat, it won’t fit perfectly on an oval toilet. If the shape of the toilet seat doesn’t match that of the toilet, it won’t just be visual dissonance that is created. There will also be limitations on the fit and how comfortable it is to sit on. So when you’re buying a new toilet lid, make sure that you choose a seat shape to match the ceramics. Our HARO and Cedo brand toilet seats are naturally available in the standard oval and square shapes as well as in the popular D-shape (also called the U-shape). Furthermore, we adapt the shape of our toilet lids to regional specifications and also produce seats for pointed, round and long toilets.
One of the most important factors of a toilet lid is how comfortable it is to sit on. Alongside the ergonomic shape of the seat and its material, it’s also important that it has a firm hold.
That’s why it’s important that the new toilet seat really fits your toilet. Many toilet seats are described as universal. These models mostly fit toilet seats with classic dimensions. Before you buy a toilet seat like this, though, you should definitely check if you own such a model. In many bathrooms, for example, extra-short toilets are installed to save space. If you try to install a universal toilet seat here, it will stick out at the front.
In order to buy the toilet seat in the right size without a doubt, we recommend that you measure the toilet beforehand. In particular, measure the length, width and the distance between the toilet seat’s fixing holes.
To take each of the measurements
Measuring the distance between the fixing holes: To determine the distance between the fixing holes, measure from the centre of each hole. Here you have a slight margin for measurement error. This is because there are variable hinges that can be individually, progressively adjusted to the existing fixing holes.
Length: Lay a folding rule or tape measure between the two mounting holes and measure the distance from here to the front edge of the toilet.
Width: Determine the width of the toilet lid by measuring the distance between the outer edges of the toilet rim at its widest point.
When buying a toilet seat, be sure to pay attention to the kind of fixing, too. It must match the installation options offered by your toilet seat. There are two different kinds of fixing.
We provide various hinges and installation solutions for different toilets and toilet seats. Take a look at our wide range and learn about the different ways of mounting.
As in many areas of everyday life, comfort plays an important role when visiting the toilet. When buying your new toilet seat, look out for practical comfort features that make day-to-day life easier:
Alongside practical convenience features, the material also contributes to the comfort factor of the toilet seat. Low-cost models are often made of polypropylene. Despite its advantages in terms of flexibility and resistance to breakage, the material is more delicate and scratches easily. Duroplast is a very high-quality material for toilet seats. Toilet lids made of this material have a particularly high-quality, ceramic-like appearance and feel comfortable to sit on. On top of this, the material is extremely scratch resistant and durable. Special material properties also ensure germ-inhibiting toilet seat surfaces. Read more about the advantages of the different materials that we use for our toilet seats here.
