Whether you are replacing a broken toilet seat or upgrading to a more comfortable or contemporary one, getting the measurements right from the start will make the whole process smooth from the beginning.
Toilet seats are available in a range of sizes and designs. Due to the wide range of brands and shapes of toilets available, there is no one size fits all when it comes to replacing a broken toilet seat. The materials that your toilet suite is made of can also impact the size of the toilet seat that you need to replace.
The first thing to measure when shopping for a new toilet seat is the distance between the fixing points. These are the bolts that fix the toilet seat to the pan. Next, measure the width of the pan at its widest point. Measure from the inner front rim of the pan to the inner back rim of the pan.
If you are unsure of where the fixing points are located or what kind of measurements you should be taking, we’re here to help.
