It isn't clear from the description but these toilet seats are solid oak and really good quality, with thick wood, strong hinges, full width hinge bar and all the necessary fixings. I know because I've just fitted one and the box says 'Solid Oak'. It looks great so I've just bought another.

B&Q's oak seats are more expensive with much lower quality and ratings. Screwfix sells Oak veneer seats for more money as does Amazon. Nothing cheaper on Ebay either. John Lewis charges an astonishing £65 for its solid oak seat which gets very dodgy reviews. You can reserve online and then check these out instore, which is what I did.

My guess, and it is only a guess, is that the website description is ambiguous (it says 'Natural Oak Finish') because Homebase will be replacing these with cheaper oak veneer seats but the current oak ones share the same product code. Either that or the people who do the descriptions are stupid. Whatever is happening, if you want a warm, natural wooden toilet seat, these are the best and cheapest you will find. Product code is 10022012 if in doubt. Very decent stock in the stores near me and showing as available for home delivery, which will, of course, cost you extra.

The reviews on Homebase are very positive indeed and worth reading if you are in any doubt. 4.6 out of 5 and loads of them (56 in total).

Ours doesn't because I rotated the hinge plates by 180 degrees before fitting it, as the instructions recommend. Try rotating the hinge plates.

Picked up mine today. Can confirm it is solid wood but not one piece if that matters to anyone.

Fitted mine this afternoon. As detailed above; solid wood seat and cover.
Easy to fit and excellent value. Good job.

Even the Heritage ones that cost a fortune aren't one piece. What you have to watch with these....speaking from experience is that the kids dont keep dropping the toilet seat lid down hard as the weight of them being oak will break the join.....that's why I've bought 2 at this price

Cold! Don't like to have wood near my behind!!! :p

I don't like the idea of sitting on something made of a material that soaks up pee from kids and messy grown ups.

Was gonna say, that's because you've either fitted it wrong, it's not right for your toilet cos it doesn't match the screw holes in the pan, or your cistern has been fitted too close to the pan. Nothing wrong with the seat, only with the person who fitted the toilet and/or seat! :p

It's gonna have a covering on the top of it, like a varnish/veneer. I don't think Homebase want people coming back to them complaining of @rse splinters! lol

Bog standard fitting here.

I bought a similar one from Tescos a while ago (think that was nearer £30), and it's excellent quality. Looks so much more classy than a plastic white seat. Had no fitting issues with mine either. Good spot by the OP. By the looks of it you could order online and get 2.5% quidco too?

And pay £5.95 for delivery, sadly.

SOLID Oak? Definitely a must buy.

Gonna use it as a chopping board as I'm tired of my normal chopping boards splitting not long after use :{

Good idea. You might want to flush the loo first. It can double as a rinse for the veg Too. :) .

I picked one up at home bargains for £9.99 today. Made by korma! It seems quite decent, not flimsy and it don't move when you sit on it.

Well, as the OP, I've bought and fitted two. They look like solid oak to me and the box says "Solid Oak". Others have confirmed too (posts 13 and 14). You can check the box when you collect.

Box photo here, which says 'Solid Wood' and 'Solid Oak':

Yeah, looking at the reviews it does look like a bit of a nightmare!

Don't think much of Homebase as I reserved one online Saturday evening, sent my husband off to collect it Sunday morning but in the meantime Homebase rang to say they had none in stock even though their website said they did. Apparently this happens a lot so a wasted journey in search of a decent toilet seat. So beware next time you reserve online don't expect Homebase to actually have it in stock.

Solid Oak? Nice spot to drop a log...,
#37
Just bought two of these to replace expensive Heritage ones (one broke - metal sheared and the other corroded to bits). So the metal fittings are just as important as the wood itself. Looks very good quality for the price, thanks OP. Recommended.
#38
Just got my 3 turn up! Great quality and solid Oak!

Fits perfect and very very good find!

Had same problem with reserve online, 2 in stock, they rang before i went to get them, just 1 left and offered the slow close one as the exact same!!! Not sure about that!
