Toilet Seats: Soft Close and Conventional

The toilet seat, like everything else in your bathroom, is more than just a functional item. As with every other element of your bathroom, a toilet seat can be a reflection of your style and preference. Moreover, the type of seat you choose can affect your comfort and even your health. So we urge you to take the same care in shopping for a toilet seat that you would in choosing a larger item for your bathroom. At QS Supplies we have hundreds of choices, but we are especially proud of our collection of soft close seats, one of the latest innovations in the bathroom industry. These seats have a unique mechanism that prevents slamming, instead allowing them to settle down noiselessly and gently in comparison to conventional acrylic and wooden seats.

Different Materials & Models

Toilet seats come in many different materials, some more durable than others. The higher end wooden seats, for example, are both more durable and more comfortable than many of the lower end plastic seats. Of course, the durability depends upon the quality of the wood and the coating process. There are a couple of different types of wooden toilet seats: MDF (medium density fibreboard), which is moulded and compressed; and natural or solid wood seats. The latter still have a large role in the UK market.

That said, durability is not the only consideration, for a toilet seat is more than just a functional item. Indeed, you can give your bathroom a mini-makeover simply by choosing a designer seat with a unique shape or a stunning finish. As with anything else, however, make sure your choice is congruent with the rest of the bathroom. For instance, the aforementioned wooden seat may lend a more traditional or classic look to your bathroom, which, if it fits your general decor, is another good reason to choose wood.

We are finding that more of our customers are choosing the soft close seats, which prevent that annoying noise that occurs when someone slams the seat down. These seats are generally also more comfortable and convenient than a standard model, making your “private time” all the more pleasant.

We can help you choose?

With such a myriad of choices, we are sure you will find the perfect product for your bathroom, depending upon its colour scheme, style, setting and of course your personal preferences and requirements.

I spent some time researching "best toilet seats" before I made this choice. It is perfect, very, very easy to fit and now it's on no wobbles and just press a button to lift the whole thing off for cleaning! FANTASTIC. (also good price, easy to buy, fast delivery and no problems from the company at all).

I searched online for an Ideal Standard toilet seat and found that the QS one was much cheaper than the other suppliers. Not only that I received an email confirming the order, and further, tracking information and delivery details. It could not have been done better. Many thanks for your excellent service.

this seat does not fit the pan correctly, the bracket overhangs and the manufacturer think this is acceptable. The pan is the same one as pictured in the advert. I would expect a supposedly bespoke seat that is advertised as the correct one for the fitting would actually fit. Not QS's fault but I will not buy any further Silverdale products.
