Are all toilet seats the same size?

Toilet seats don't come in sizes, but they do come in two different shapes: round toilet seats and elongated toilet seats, each of which correspond to two different toilet bowl shapes. Round toilet seats are still the standard in most homes, and they're the toilet seats you typically see most often.

Can I put a round toilet seat on an elongated toilet?

An elongated bidet seat will still mount on a round toilet, as well as function just fine, but the aesthetics and comfort of the seat will be greatly diminished.

How do I keep my toilet seat from moving?

A sliding toilet seat is one such problem. You should be able to stop it from sliding by tightening the nuts holding it to the bowl, but they loosen again after a short time and the problem reoccurs. The reason is that the holes for the bolts are purposely oversized so that the bolts won't crack the porcelain.

Anonymous When we move to a new place, and when they start to look a little grungy. So maybe every few years. It's not great for the environment/landfills to dispose of them often.

How do you know if you have a round or elongated toilet?

Measure the distance from the center of the mounting holes, to the front outside edge of the toilet bowl. If the measurement here is 17 inches or less, you have a round toilet. If it's 17.5 inches or more, you have an elongated toilet.

Are wood toilet seats better than plastic?

When it comes to installation and usability, wood and plastic seats are virtually identical, but plastic seats last longer. Because wood is a natural material, it eventually degrades in a high-moisture bathroom; solid wood seats discolor and the paint chips off of those made of medium-density fiberboard.

Which toilet bowl shape is the most comfortable?

Comfort: Most adults feel an elongated-style toilet bowl is more comfortable to sit on than a compact-size toilet bowl because the longer seat supports more of the thigh and because there is a larger opening, making it easier to reach down inside the bowl to wipe yourself after using the toilet.

How do slow close toilet seats work?

A slow close toilet seat is basically one that closes on its own as soon as you start to push it down. Gravity controls it but special, tensioned hinges control the gravity. This is where the slow part comes in so there's no slamming down. To get the seat on its way to closing, even just a light tap will do the trick.

How far should a toilet be from a wall?

Most codes require at least 15 inches (measured from the center of the toilet) from any side wall or obstruction and not closer than 30 inches center to center to any other sanitary fixture. (The NKBA actually recommends 32 inches.) There should be at least 24 inches of clear space in front of a toilet or bidet.

How do I choose a replacement toilet seat?

These days, toilet seats come in standard sizes, but measuring your seat before buying a replacement is still wise. Start by measuring the seat from back to front. Buy a standard round seat if the length is around 16 in (41 cm). If it's around 18 in (46 cm) long, go with an elongated seat.

Why are toilets elongated?

For elongated toilets, the consensus seems to be that they are much more comfortable for adults. The shape of the bowl is much better for men as well, giving them extra space where they need it most. They are a better option for small bathrooms because they don't take up as much space (from wall to front of toilet).

Are all toilet seats the same size UK?

No, not all toilet seats fit the same because toilets come in a variety of different shapes, so you'll need to check yours before buying. There are three types of toilet shapes commonly found in UK homes. Most toilet seats are an oval shape, although some may be more of a contemporary square or D-shape.

How do you measure toilet rough in?

To find out your toilet's rough-in, measure from the wall behind the toilet to the middle of the closet bolts, which hold your toilet to the floor. That distance will likely be a bit more than the standard 10″, 12″, or 14″ rough-in dimensions. Round your measurement down to the nearest standard rough-in.
