How to decorate the toilet seat
1. Choose an original but practical material
The toilet must always be kept perfectly clean to avoid infections or the appearance of fungi. For this reason, it is important to choose the material that best lends itself to being decorated.
Most manufacturers opt for methacrylate, plastic, wood and porcelain tablets. There are also steel tablets; in other words, any smooth and waterproof material.
The variety of materials with which the tablet can be decorated may surprise you. Some of these options are not recommended as they are highly unsanitary, such as fabric or wool, although they can give a soft and warm effect.
Do you want to give a more tropical touch to the bathroom? How about decorating it with marine motifs? Polyresin (artificial resin) will definitely be for you.
With this material it is possible to recreate shells, sea stars, flowers and other motifs to add to the toilet seat. The manufacturer will print them on the tablet when the resin is still malleable and before it dries.
Another original idea ideal to make with polyresin is a mosaic on the tablet with fragments of tiles. This architectural technique was made famous by the well-known Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and create a geometric effect to the furniture. Definitely a great option to consider.

These toilets also have a built-in bidet, with the ability to adjust the water temperature, and even drying functions. An ecological option since it eliminates the use of toilet paper which unfortunately pollutes seas and rivers. And, of course, they are perfect for inserting an innovative piece of furniture in the bathroom.
Even if they cost more, they offer a whole series of advantages over traditional toilets: heated seat, automatic closing and opening, bidet function, customized water jets for cleaning and even night lights. An intriguing proposal that is making more and more space in the international market.
