Novelty Toilet Seats - Get Them Talking About Your Toilet

When planning a bathroom décor, don't forget about the toilet seat. Novelty toilet seats can be an unexpected touch to a bathroom theme and add personality to an otherwise sterile functional fixture.

Novelty themes range from the beach to western with many fun and funky spin-offs. For example, you can find bright and colorful images of marine wildlife like dolphins, whales and sharks. Today, there is an abundance of sea shell themed seats, some with actual shells encapsulated in a hard clear material. Western themes can include horses, bears, cowhides and outhouses. You can even find unique toilet seats with fishing lures and golf tees embedded in clear durable acrylic. Additionally, you'll find online many artists who make one-of-a-kind artwork in whatever theme catches their fancy.

The materials to make unique seat designs are just as varied as the themes you'll find. Toilet seats normally come in a cast acrylic plastic. Clear acrylic allows for ordinary items like sea shells, fishing lures, coins and golf tees to be suspended in the material. Solid oak carvings are very popular and, today, several artists and craftsmen have chosen to make the seat the canvas for their art.

Before purchasing a novelty toilet seat, it's important to know the size and shape of your seat. Basically, the shape will be either round or elongated. To determine the size, measure from the center front of the bowl to the center of the hinge post holes. You'll find most toilet seats sizes to be standard.

Novelty toilet seats can add a distinctive and creative touch to the bathroom. And because of their unusual characteristic, you'll find your guests commenting about your toilet, but in a good way.
