Unknown wich Natural Oak Toilet Seat : Beautiful quality

Toilet Seats

I took delivery of the item and ultimately the quality is lovely (it is not cheap so should be good). I thought i was ordering a soft close oak toilet seat and of course on delivery realised that it wasn’t. I wanted to send it back and hadn’t fully appreciated that i’d have to pay the postage (usually i can return with none to very little cost). The cost of returning this item was almost half the price again. I was greatly disappointed as i use and buy lots from amazon and need to be much more careful and absolutley sure when i order.

The product is great quality, solid oak and looks lovely. The only thing i found is that we had to put the chrome hinges on back to front to make the seat fit out loo. But, it looks perfect and you would not know.

After reading the review saying that this type of seat split, i’m a little cautious, as i’ve had seats split in the past. This seat is fairly expensive (compared to others on, for example, ebay) and my hope is that it will prove more durable – only time will tell. It appears sturdy, though the colour is not quite the shade illustrated (which to me looks a very fresh, untreated oak colour, which is what i wanted) – it’s slightly greyer and more like traditional oak cabinets. The fixings look solid and it was fairly easy to fit, though my husband had to make a few adjustments afterwards (‘fettling’ he says) to customize it for our situation. First seat received was scratched and although supplier responded promptly and picked up the damaged item, they didn’t send a replacement until prompted. All in all, reasonably pleased with my purchase, but may not have been willing to pay the extra for the brand name if i’d seen the colour in front of me – one of the hazards of internet shopping. Regarding longevity, now nearly 2 years on and it’s still going strong (and i’ve got used to the colour). Here are the specifications for the Unknown wich Natural Oak Toilet Seat:
