Whether you’re a new homeowner or simply reflecting on your last apartment’s issues, there are some things that are overlooked during your stay in a new home. We spend so much time and money on flooring, curtains, kitchen appliances, decor, and so on, that something as simple as the type of toilet seat we choose becomes lost in the conversation.

Well, what if we told you the type of toilet seat you pick is just as important as the type of light fixture you hang in the living room?

Selecting the right toilet seat may seem simple, but there are so many options that can have a huge impact on your body. In fact, comfortability plays a major role in your body mobility and ergonomics. Cozy seating makes all the difference for your back, hips and legs, especially for those who are elderly or have a disability. Beyond installation, material, and durability, there also lies the maintenance of your chosen toilet seat, as well.

You may be asking yourself if your toilet seat is really as comfortable as it should be. Or, better yet, whether or not the aesthetic of your chosen loo is doing any good for your mental health. Before you get overwhelmed, check out our number one pick.

Everything you need to know about duroplast toilet seats

How many seats have you chipped from everyday use and cleanings? Too many. That’s why we recommend duroplast seats. This scratch-resistant alternative stands firm against harsh chemicals and provides longevity to its users. According to Reico, the molecules of duroplast are highly germ-inhibiting, therefore, making them great for hygiene and a longer lifespans. Once the toilet seat is molded, it’s nearly impossible to crack.

The non-porous surface makes for easy cleaning and comfort. The molecules interact with body heat, so say adios to cold porcelain that stays cold. Expect a warmer toilet seat in seconds. For those worried about the horrors of their toilet sticking out like a sore thumb, don’t fret. The seat comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Hamberger Sanitary is one among many crafters that offer classically round, D-shaped, beige, blue, or whatever funky color your heart desires, all without impacting your comfort or your toilet’s lifespan.

Investing in your toilet may seem silly, but this option is more affordable than alternatives. Because of the weight wood and stainless steel carry, they are more expensive. These makeups are a lot more susceptible to warping with humidity or harsh cleaning agents, as well. Wood options are also more likely to rack up costs when it comes to adjusting hinges. Though duroplast is more expensive than traditional plastic, know thst you’re paying for peace of mind– and preventing the toilet seat from shifting sideways.

Because your new duroplast toilet seat is nearly indestructible, you can really get creative with the cleaning process. If you don’t know where to begin, here’s our recommendations.

Don’t miss out on commercial toilet solutions that make your life easier. The best toilet cleaners to keep your bowl (and seat) sparkling are Lysol Power Toilet Bowl Cleaner Gel, Scrubbing Bubbles Rainshower Scent Bubbly Bleach Gel, and Clorox Ultra Clean Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner Tablets with Bleach. If you have a bit more time on your hands to DIY your own solution, you can do baking sodas, citric acids, essential oils and different types of vinegar. Be sure to read up on what chemicals play nice with each other to avoid mixing the wrong ones together! You could also mix equal parts baking soda and white vinegar for an effortless clean. Let the concoction fizz for a few moments, then once it settles, use your brush to scrub.

If you’re a bit on the simpler side when it comes to cleaning days, a mild soap and sponge will do. Be sure to scrub the surface in a circular motion, rinse, then repeat. Be sure to scrub the underside, as well as any hinges and bolts. Now that we’ve cleared your conscious about the ease and immediate satisfaction of switching to a duroplast toilet seat, what are you waiting for? Your throne awaits.
