How to Choose a Toilet Seat
Round vs. Elongated Toilet Seats
Per North American plumbing standards, all toilets are either round or elongated (oval or oblong).
Measure your toilet, not your toilet seat to determine if you need a round or elongated toilet seat.
Measure from the seat mounting holes to the front, top edge of the bowl.
Elongated bowls = 18.5 inches,
Round bowls = 16.5 inches.

Toilet Seat Materials
Bath Royale’s Premium and Superior models are made of polypropylene, a softer plastic that is lighter and more flexible than other toilet seat materials. It’s beautiful, high-gloss finish will last for years with proper care and cleaning, but scratches relatively easily (avoid abrasives and hard sharp objects). Polypropylene is softer and warmer to touch than painted wood or Eurocast®.
Eurocast® - Bath Royale’s MasterSuite seats are made of Eurocast®, a high-tech polymer plastic that is extremely durable and scratch resistant. Eurocast is heavier, harder and stiffer than polypropylene. Eurocast is cooler to touch than polypropylene and breathes better against the skin, which may be preferred in warmer, humid climates or for people who spend a lot of time on the toilet. MasterSuite bumpers are rubberized (slip-resistant) and strategically placed for stability. For those who are above average weight and like to sit (and move around) on the closed cover, MasterSuite is the best choice.
Toilet Seat Color Options
Most Bath Royale seats are available in three colors: White, Biscuit/Linen, and Almond/Bone.
Biscuit/Linen matches Kohler’s Biscuit, American Standard’s Linen, Toto’s Sedona Beige, and Mansfield's Antique Lace. Other brands that match Biscuit/Linen include Briggs, Eljer, and Gerber.
Almond/Bone matches Kohler’s Almond, American Standard’s Bone, Toto’s Bone, Universal Rundle's Mushroom, and Norris' Ivory. Other brands matching Almond/Bone include Artesian, Briggs, Crane, Gerber, Kilgore, Mansfield, and Peerless.
Do not try to match online photos, images, or color swatches with your toilet; colors appear differently on all screens, including mobile phones, tablets, desktop computers and TVs. Please confirm your toilet’s brand and actual color name before ordering.
