How to replace a toilet seat

By Jakob Jelling

The most difficult part of replacing a toilet seat is not actually the replacement itself. The hardest part is actually trying to find the right toilet seat to use as a replacement. There are so many different types of toilet seats on the market that you could find yourself looking for toilet seats for a long time before you find the right one.

The biggest question that most people have is whether or not they should go for a hard or soft toilet seat. There are a few reasons why you might choose either one, however, the choice is in the end up to you. It is more important that you choose a toilet seat that fits your preferences than it is that you find the best one.

Soft toilet seats are good if you're looking for something that will be confortable. Another benefit of these seats is that they are less cold than harder plastic or porcelain seats. However, there are some disadvantages to these as well. For instance, soft toilet seats are harder to keep clean and they will not last as long as some of the harder toilet seats. Therefore, you should choose these toilet seats if you like them, but you should not expect them to last as long as the other styles.

Another thing you should consider is whether or not the toilet seat is going to be the right design to match the rest of your toilet. While it is not always the case that there will be the same toilet seat on the market as the one that you had on your toilet before, you should be able to find a similar style of seat.

When it comes to how to replace a toilet seat, the important thing to remember is that you need to be very careful with the bolts that hold it in place, as you will need those to put in your new toilet seat. Carefully unscrew the bolts and then lift the old toilet seat out of the way. Then, place the new toilet seat. Tighten the bolts down carefully and then you should have the new toilet seat ready to go. You might need a wrench in order to replace the toilet seat.
