In today’s toilet seat market, a black toilet seat is undoubtedly a popular option for any and all bathrooms.
This is most likely due to the offsetting black color to the white porcelain which makes the seat pop as much as it blends into your bathroom. Or because you have a black toilet. In any case, a black on white bathroom scheme is a solid design and easy to throw together without much upfront investment. The template for creating a bathroom in this style is usually widely available too, especially for those in rental units.
Below we’ve laid out 6 black toilet seats for your review; 3 round seats and 3 elongated seats. The 6 options you see here are also highly rated and readily available for purchase. What you’ll need to do is consider things like price, material, and other features that will make your toilet seat the toilet seat of your dreams.
We at Toiletops.com oftentimes favor functionality over image, however, our choice today is one that needn’t compromise on either. If beauty and practicality can meet to truly balance both sides of the equation, we are all for it. That is why of the black toilet seats you see below, our choice is the Kohler Cachet model seats for both round and elongated toilet seats.
For functionality, look no further than the Cachet’s quiet-close hinges which prevent slamming. A soft closing black toilet seat should be a priority.
With a simple nudge, the seat will bring itself to a close in order to reduce noise. This reduces the risk of pinched fingers (children) and increase your ability to keep a hygienic bathroom in order.
By keeping the seat closed more, you reduce your child’s chances of touching something unspeakable. You also keep your dog out of the toilet bowl, for those this applies to.
To the right you see that while the Cachet toilet seats are plastic, they aren’t a flimsy, under-handed attempt at a toilet seat. This is a thick, durably built toilet seat. The toilet seat cover fits flush over the seat, which makes the lid durable to sit on top of. Because what good is a toilet seat and lid if you want sit atop it like a chair? Have you ever sat on a toilet seat cover that doesn’t fit flush on the seat? We don’t recommend that.
That same picture also shows off the Quick-Release functionality of the toilet seat. This means you can easily pop it off and clean along with your toilet. When it comes to a good deep clean, this is an ideal option to have. The task of removing the toilet seat as a whole is less of a worry due to the Quick-Release feature.

Round Black Toilet Seat Options
The first black toilet seat on our list is a black wooden toilet seat from Comfort Seats and is model C1B4R2.. This highly-rated toilet seat is made from a specially formulated wood composition which not only reinforces the seat but increases the durability of the seat. This also helps the wood handle the wear and tear of regular use.
With a strong, wooden foundation this seat is then finished with a multi-coat surface finish to provide a beautiful, ever-lasting image. It’s quite flashy and shimmers beautifully in the light. While we at Toiletops.com prefer matte finish, the high-gloss finish of this toilet seat is excellent.

The hinges are factory-installed to provide a flush alignment between cover and seat. Be that as it may, any breakdown of this toilet seat will likely occur here. But overall, the chances of that are fairly low and unlikely to sway your decision given the price.
