Typical toilet seats consist of wood, plastic or porcelain. And while these materials can provide aesthetic value, they do little in the way of comfort. An alternative to the standard, hard-surfaced toilet seat is one that utilizes padded or cushioned materials. Padded and cushioned toilet seats offer higher levels of comfort, providing functional as well as aesthetic value. The best of these soft seats have a durable construction and are easy to clean.
Church Seats 113EC
The Church Seats 113EC Elongated Deluxe Padded Toilet Seat consists of high-density, padded vinyl, which is a durable and resistant synthetic resin. Due to its vinyl construction, the toilet seat has anti-bacterial surfaces, which means microorganisms will not be prone to colonizing them. For added cleaning convenience, the Church Seats 113EC padded toilet seat also includes patented Dial-On hinges. These hinges allow the seat to slide on and off the bowl of the toilet without having to remove or unscrew the bolts that hold the seat in place. According to the toilet seat resource Unique Toilet Seats (See Reference 2), the "simple styling" of the Church Seats 113EC can "complement any bathroom" while the seat's "quality construction" allows it to have a long lifespan.
Unlike the Church Seats 113EC and its standard white coloring, the Ginsey Classique cushioned toilet seat is available in 18 different colors. These include neutral colors for matching existing decors and more vibrant decorator colors for making a statement. The Ginsey Classique consists of high-density foam, which provides a firm yet comfortable seat and has a vinyl cover for easy cleaning. In addition, the Ginsey Classique is available in both elongated and standard sizes for matching different toilet bowl types. Standard bowls have relatively circular shapes while elongated bowls are more oval-like.
Comfort Seats C1B5R2-00CH
The Comfort Seats C1B5R2-00CH Deluxe Soft Toilet Seat has a wood core for added stability and an exterior that consists of high density foam padding. In addition to providing added comfort with its ergonomic, or form-fitting, design, the toilet seat resource Toilet Seat Padded mentions that the seat is easy to install, requiring only a screwdriver. The hinges of the Comfort Seats C1B5R2-00CH are corrosion proof and adjustable, which means the seat can fit easily onto existing hardware. The seat is white in color and has an elongated size.
Unlike typical vinyl toilet seats, which are sealed with a heating process, workers upholster Kushy Tushy seats by hand. According to Unique Toilet Seats, the Kushy Tushy cushioned toilet seat has a "high quality construction" and its seams will never split. The core of the toilet seat consists of hardboard, or compressed wood pulp, while its hinges consist of corrosion-resistant aluminum. The Kushy Tushy is compatible with standard toilet bowls and is available in several different colors and designs.
