We have a powder room with fixtures original to our home.
However, the toilet has a modern-looking plastic seat.
I don't want a natural wood seat, but I'd like a vintage-looking seat to match the toilet.

Any suggestions?

While solid plastic toilet seats have advantages like easy cleaning and resistance to staining and chipping, in most cases they do give a modern look to a bathroom, especially when it comes to color and finish. Injection-molded seats have a solid color throughout and a glossy bright finish.

For a vintage style, many homeowners choose a natural wood toilet seat. Natural wood seats can bring an old-time feel to a bathroom.

But if you want a true vintage look, there is another wood choice.

A compression-molded wood toilet seat with a painted surface can give you a heavy feel with a vintage finish. Higher-end molded wood seats can also have strong nickel hinges to complete the look.

So if you want something vintage-looking that can really flip your lid, check out a compression-molded wood toilet seat.
