What are the widest toilet seats and their covers? From what size is a toilet seat non-standard?
We have started to look at some of the characteristics of WCs in previous posts. We have seen that there are some very long and large WCs that need toilet seat covers with lengths of 50, 51, 52 cm. (“BIG sanitaryware, WCs and bidets in large sizes, modern lines and their WC covers (part 1)“). We have seen that there are very small and short WCs that need toilet seat covers with reduced dimensions under 40 cm (39,38,37) (“Which small toilet seat has sold the most? “) and also very small for children and kindergartens (“Small sanitaryware – very small. They look like children! Toilet seats for kindergarden/infant/toddler.“). We have seen sanitary fittings that are narrow in width and require toilet seats that are only 34, 33 cm wide (“Narrow WC seats and bidets. Less then 35 cm. in widht. What are the WC seats for these toilets?“). Today we will focus on very wide sanitary ware. Let’s start with the standard size, the width considered “normal” is 35/36 cm. Many sanitary ware products are 37 cm wide, but we are already in the non-standard category. We will see in this post that there are also sanitary ware and toilet seats with a width of 38, 39 and even 40 42 cm.
Starck 1 series by Duravit
It falls into the round sanitary ware category we saw in the post: “Sanitaryware as round as a circle. Here you need costumised toilet seats!”, where, among other things, we also saw the series ARKE’ by Galassia very similar in shape, but “only” 40 cm wide, compared to STARCK 1 which is 42 cm wide. We quote directly from the Duravit catalogue: “Bucket, tub and basin. With Starck 1, Philippe Starck and Duravit have returned to the origins of hygiene, body care and well-being. The series therefore also describes the evolution of the bathroom. The toilet, bathtub and washbasin are a clear reference to their historical ancestors: the bucket, tub and basin (and we add CERCHIO), albeit completely reinterpreted. A circular shape with a diameter of 42 cm (width). Here is a small clarification on the toilet seats, at the following link you will find the original version and the dedicated variant which is much sought after because it is much more robust.

AMICA series by Ceramica Globo
A 80s series of Globo ceramics with a really big size. It was called AMICA. From its design, Ronda and other series were developed in the following years. In addition to being a very long sanitary ware (its toilet seat length is 49/50 cm), it is also very wide: it measures 39 cm! This toilet bowl can only be fitted with a (dedicated) toilet seat made especially for it. You can find it at the following link [ clik here ]
BONSAI series (wall-mounted vase) by Ceramica Globo
Also from the same ceramic manufacturer (Globo) we find the BONSAI series in the suspended version. Practically we find ourselves on the opposite side of the dimensional scale. If Amica was enormous, Bonsai is very small. But incredibly its width is 38.5/39 cm! You can find her toilet seat at the following link [ clik here ]
Sculture and Sculture 2 series by Hatria Ceramiche
We have rightly discussed this in the post: “ BIG sanitaryware, WCs and bidets in large sizes, modern lines and their WC covers (part 1) ”, We have seen that its toilet seat is very long, but above all it is very wide: 38.5 cm. The NEW or 2 version of SCULPTURE is shorter in length, but is even 39.5/40 cm wide. The toilet seats for the two Sculture “sisters”, the old and the new version, are therefore clearly different. The classic SCULTURE toilet seat can be found under the following link [ clik here ], The toilet seat for the Sculture NEW version can be found under the following link [ clik here ]
ASSOLUTO series by Faleri
We have already met MAGICA from this company in the post: “Retrò/Classic/ English syle sanitaryware and their toilet seats (part 1)” and there too we found an out-of-standard size of 39.5 cm. Here with ASSOLUTO we find a very wide toilet seat. Its toilet seat also has a width of 39 cm. You can find it in the Sintesibagno store at the following link [ clik here ]
