It is a pity that you can’t by just the replacement parts. I had 1 hinge that has rusted but had to buy the entire seat and lid. Good for the company but not me or the planet a large piece of plastic has gone to land fill.

Perfect toilet seat for ideal standard space toilet. The replacement seat is exactly as expected. Fits perfectly, easy to fit and delivered on time. The actual toilet though is a different matter. The hinges corrode leaving the screw embedded in the plastic after the head breaks off, and the only replacement seat that fits it is very expensive. There are no alternative ones available from any other company.

  • Ideal Standard Space Toilet Seat (E709101)
  • 400mm diameter
  • hinge centres – 145mm

It is really good to be able to use our loo again but astonishing that loo seats can now be bought for under a tenner and even a fancy one with starfish is only just over double that and yet this manufacturer charges ten times that if bought in the shops.

Ideal standard space toilet seat. The idea of having a seat that can be turned 45 degrees to left or right when fitted in confined spaces is a good idea, but the product has been let down by the quality of the fittings that fix the seat to the porcelain ware. Although they are supposed to be stainless steel brackets, the quality is suspect as they rust. Coating them with laquer before fitting does help but eventually the rust breaks through. I am on my 2nd seat, and rusty steel does nothing for the looks. There is room for improvement. Ideal standard space toilet seat.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Sent the first one back as faulty mounting holes,
  • Cheaper than in the shops
  • Space Saver but not money saver.

Old english white (creamy) for over 10 years and like some other owners. We have had our ideal standard space suite in old english white (creamy) for over 10 years and like some other owners, have a problem with a yellowing seat – looks definitely unsavoury. Tried various things to clean it and have now found a solution – t-cut (for polishing blemishes and scratches on car paintwork), coupled with a bit of effort. Not sure how long it will remain clean but a bottle of t-cut is a lot cheaper than a new toilet seat, especially as this range is no longer current. They call it ‘built in obsolescence’.

No choice but to buy this as no other will fit the pan. Price typical but very expensive for a toilet seat old one was already fitted when we moved here 9 years ago so has seemingly lasted 9 years plus. I did repair the old one once as the fixings failed where the seat is screwed to the hinge. Managed to rethread the holes and fit new screws. Old one failed where the seat hinge is welded after being used by a very weighty person. Hope the new one can stand the weight better if she visits again. I made sure to grease the screws on the new one before assembly and hope this will keep corrosion at bay. Bleach must not be used on any part of the seat, cover or hinges.

Sent the first one back as faulty mounting holes,. Sent the first one back as faulty mounting holes, cost is rediculus for a toilet seat. I have other customers with the same space toilets and all have had problems with these seats. Not what you expect from a quality brand.
