How to measure a toilet seat

Measuring for a new toilet seat

In this video, we show you how to measure for a new toilet seat/toilet lid.

You will need to take 4 measurements from your toilet, starting with the length.

Place one end of your tape measure between the fixing holes and stretch out to the very front edge of your toilet. This will give you the length.

Next, measure across the pan at the widest point and note down the width.

Then the height. This is the distance from the fixing holes to the cistern or wall.

And finally, note the distance between the 2 fixing holes as well, as this may sometimes vary between seats.

Now that you have your measurements, check out our toilet seat replacement guide.

Or, if you prefer, read our full guide to measuring your toilet seat.
