Great stuff. Another option I'll consider. The rest of the bathroom is great. It's just that bl00dy seat.


Thanks a lot.

I've tried many times to source a replacement but so many differing shapes and sizes it's an impossibility.

The seat is a good quality one, really sturdy and soft closing. Can anyone advise of a solution to bring it back to life?

Plastic paint?
Powder coating?
Body shop spray paint of some kind?
Other?

Whatever I try it needs to work because I think I'll only get one chance at this. I don't want whatever I put on it to start flaking/pealing in the future as that will look worse than it is now.

TIA

TBH, in 32 years of being a plumber I haven't ever seen this. Lots of windows and lights or not.

You have a very weird toilet seat.

We have a similar issue with the bath panel , it must be something to do with the material that it is made from or its coloured coating. The bath is still pure white but its panel has started to discolour. Some of the plastic tile trim has went a similar colour but the UPVC trim is still white

Thanks for all the comments (including the comedy ones).

We'll have a go at cleaning first as we can experiment with different product on the underside of the lid.

Then I think I'll go down the wrapping route, at least this way we can get samples of all the different shades of white (to match toilet) or like John said got for a different colour all together to give a contrast.

Is it just me or does that toilet look like a big toe and the lid looks like the toe nail?

Hehe, just told Mrs Ant Lee (she has a massive foot/toe/nail phobia) and she said she'll never use that toilet again without that horrifying picture in her head!

Maybe we just need some fungal foot powder on that gammy toe nail eh?

Well, we're very peculiar people with very peculiar taste.

We've got 8 of these toilets around our trough style dining room table.
