The Joy of the Silent Toilet Seat


So it’s 2:00 A.M. in the morning, and nature calls.  I flush my Toto toilet and give the toilet seat a light push in the downward direction. Ever so slowly it lowers to the rim of the toilet.  No boom, bang, or startled reaction from my spouse sleeping in the adjoining bedroom. Some months back, I visited an oustanding decorative hardware and bath showroom in Fairfield, NJ, called Hardware Designs. If you haven’t been there, you’ve never seen a showroom like this one.  A huge selection of faucets, sinks,  tubs, accessories, lighting, interior and exterior doors and enough door and cabinet hardware to keep you occupied for a month!  Best of all they had toilets  – lots of them.  Brands like Toto, Duravit, Porcher, St.Thomas and more, adorned the floor for me to see and compare. The soft close Toto seat caught my attention, and I knew immediately that my wife would be even happier with it than I was!  It was not expensive, and I found the installation so easy I even installed the toilet by myself.  You just have to visit this place. In spite of the beautiful showrooms, you’ll find as I did that everything was priced right!  Check them out online at or email them at
