Toilet seats are notoriously one of the dirtiest places in your home (although there are many surprisingly dirtier places — like your remote controls, door knobs and even your cellphone). But although this is an often overlooked part of the home, you might be wondering — when should you change your toilet seat for a new one? How long are they really good for?
Well, in many cases, when to replace a toilet seat is subjective, but these are a few of the common signs that you’ll want to swap yours out for a new one.
It no longer matches your decor.
Is your bathroom toilet seat old and outdated? Is it discolored? Are you remodeling your bathroom? This is the perfect time to make a simple home update and swap out your toilet seat.
One of the most obvious signs that it’s time to update your toilet seat — it’s broken. If your toilet seat is cracked or the hinges just aren’t holding up anymore, swap out your toilet seat for a new one.
