Best Overall: American Standard Slow-Close
No more slammed toilet seats. The slow-close “no slam” hinge of the American Standard 5321A65CT.020 makes it a great replacement option. It is 18.69-in. long by 14.06 in.-wide and fits most conventional elongated toilets. There are several reasons why it’s one of the most popular options on Amazon.
“This seat is perfect,” one Amazon reviewer writes. “I was getting tired of the slamming of the seat that came with the new toilet. This works perfect. Goes down nice and slow. No more slamming. Love it!”
Best Budget Choice: Kohler Stonewood Molded Wood
There isn’t a lot of “wow” factor to the Kohler K-4648-0 Stonewood Molded Wood toilet seat, but at $17.98 for the basic white you’re not likely to find a better deal. Biscuit and almond versions cost more.
“It is extremely well constructed and feels much more sturdy, heavy and solid than anything I have ever spent $17 on,” writes an Amazon reviewer. “Not to mention the finish feels really nice on your behind.”
Best Bidet Toilet Seat: Veken Ultra-Slim Bidet
A bidet toilet seat is a great solution if or when the next toilet paper shortage happens. The Veken Ultra-Slim Bidet allows for adjustable water pressure and spray. It’s available in silver or white.
“I selected this model due to its look and simplicity as well as the connections being made of metal,” an Amazon reviewer writes. “It’s installation is pretty straight forward and I didn’t need to use the seat spacers.”
Best Elongated: Kohler Rutledge Elongated Toilet Seat
The Kohler K-4734-0 Rutledge white toilet seat fits most elongated toilets and comes with several desirable features. The grip tight bumpers provide stability and prevent shifting. It also has slow close hinges so there’s no slamming of the lid. Best yet, costing less than $40, it won’t break your budget.
Writes one Amazon reviewer: “We were so impressed with the slow motion closing (vs. jarring instant loud clunk) and the unique mounting brackets that allow whole seat to be slid off for total cleaning of both seat and bowl, that we quickly ordered another seat for our other bathroom.”
Best Heated: Brondell LumaWarm Heated Nightlight Toilet Seat
There are lots of heated toilet seats on the market, but this one by Brondell stands out from the rest. Not only does it warm up the seat — perfect on those cold winter nights — it also features an illuminated light and slow closing lid.
And if you’re wondering if a heated toilet seat is too superfluous, read through some of the online reviews.
“I purchased this seat since I live in an area where the winters are quite cold,” an Amazon reviewer writes. “This seat was very easy to install — remove the old seat, use the existing holes to insert this seat’s clips, secure the clips from the underside of the toilet rim by turning the nuts, slide the new seat into the retaining clips, and plug it in, the end. The power cord is four feet in length so it should be long enough to reach a GFCI outlet in most bathrooms.”
Best Round: Mayfair 26MBSL 000 Benton Toilet Seat
Sit in comfort and style with the Mayfair 26MBSL 000 Benton Toilet Seat. It also comes in at a comfortable price of $36.99.
The durable enameled wood seat resists chipping and scratching along with a superior high-gloss finish. It fits most round seats produced by Kohler, American Standard and TOTO, according to its product description. The hinges are available in matte black, chrome and brushed nickel.
Best Wooden: Angol Shiold Anti-Pinch Toilet Seat
Wooden toilet seats aren’t for everyone, but this one by Angol Shiold is great if you want that cabin look. It’s durable and supports up to 400 pounds.
“Now that’s a toilet seat,” an Amazon reviewer writes. “Having had some bad experiences I almost gave up hope on finding a decent wood seat. This one is gorgeous, solid, well made, and easy to install. I love it. And the slow close feature is great.”
Best Plastic: BEMIS Round Plastic Toilet Seat
This round plastic toilet seat by Bemis is a budget friendly choice with a price tag of $13.25. The ring bumpers provide stability and it tightens from the top for easier installation. It fits most round toilets.
“It’s a nice shade of white, and the material is agreeable — not too shiny, not too matte,” an Amazon reviewer writes. “Good looking and comfortable. It comes in a snug, sturdy, well designed box, with the hardware included. And is made in the U.S. And is very economically priced, as if the company believes everyone deserves a decent toilet seat, which they certainly do.”
Best Kids Toilet Seat: BabyBjorn Toilet Trainer
Potty training isn’t fun, but the toilet trainer by BabyBjorn takes some of the stress out of it. The ergonomic design is easy for children to sit on. And it features an inward sloping splashguard, preventing spills outside the toilet. Best yet, it only needs to be adjusted once when installing.
Most Comfortable: Luxe Bidet TS1008E Elongated Comfort Fit
This comfort fit toilet seat by Luxe fits any standard elongated toilet, with the comfort of a high end model. Just listen to the more than 600 Amazon reviewers who gave it 4.7 stars.
“Hard to get worked up over a toilet seat but so many these days are total junk yet they sell for the same price or more,” one reviewer writes. “Solid construction, non-slip pads — most only have two and they slide around. And comfortable!
“Plus you can sit on the cover, something we used to take for granted but these days you’d probably end on the floor with a broken seat, uncomfortably wedged someplace on your body.”
