Many people prefer a round wooden toilet seat, but if you don’t like the look of natural wood, there are many different color choices available. Wood has many more benefits than harsh cold plastic. Besides being a renewable resource that helps the environment, your wood toilet seat will be more comfortable than plastic.
Have you ever sat on a cold plastic seat in the middle of the night? It certainly wakes you up. Also, plastic can be a bit rough around the edges, and it can crack, bend, chip, and warp. Plastic is more easily scratchable than natural wood product. A plastic toilet seat can also be flimsy, which doesn’t work too well with the heavier members of the family. A good solid wood toilet seat is going to be durable, and when you sit down, it’ll be like sitting on a chair. It won’t bend, warp, or break.
A wooden toilet seat also has the additional benefit of being warmer than plastic, which is great for those cold winter days when the bathroom may not get adequately heated. Wooden toilet seats are as easy to clean as plastic. They can easily pop off for cleaning, then reattach when done.
Many wooden toilet seats are made in the USA, so you’re ensuring that jobs are kept in the country, and products have been naturally sourced from from renewable resources in the USA.
Wooden toilet seats can come in every color of the rainbow, or even naturally colored wood. If you can’t find one to coordinate with your bathroom colors, you can paint it a toilet seat for an exact match. Wooden toilet seats may even come in fun patterns.
A wooden toilet seat can work just like a plastic seat in that it can have a slow close, not slam feature. This keeps your toilet seat quiet, particularly in the middle of the night.
