Replacing your old toilet seat is quick and easy. In the latest of our Switches and Fixes articles with video, we'll show you how to fit a toilet seat.

It certainly shouldn't be this way, as our step-by-step guide will demonstrate. Fitting a new toilet seat is really easy and can give your bathroom that little lift it deserves.
