How to figure out the color of your toilet.

WHITE VS. BONE VS. “OFF-WHITE”
 
White toilets
*are "generally" similar in color as toilet paper next to them (do not compare to a sheet of white copy paper)
*match white plastic seats and white plastic flush levers
*can look "bone" in a photograph so careful when looking at photos of toilets
*do not fade into other colors over time
*can be  identified as white by taking lid to friend and getting a second opinion.
*can look different colors in a photograph depending on lighting, reflections, flash, inside, outside, quality of camera, your eyeballs,etc
Approximately 90% of all toilets in the world are “White”
"Bone" toilets
*have a bit of yellow and/or brown tint in them
*"Bone" essentially is a common name that is used when the  exact name used by different companies is unknown,  such as almond, beige, linen, cream, bisque, tan, sand, wheat, parchment, ivory, etc.
*match bone colored plastic seats
*can look white in a photograph so be careful when looking at photos of toilets
*do not fade into other colors over time
*can be  identified as "bone" color by taking lid to friend and getting a second opinion.
*can look different colors in a photograph depending on lighting, reflections, flash, inside, outside, quality of camera, your eyeballs,etc
Approximately 10% of all toilets in the world are “Bone” colored.
  "Off-white" toilets
“Off-white” is not a color name used by toilet companies. Toilet companies make toilets either white or they make toilets in the “bone” family of colors. 
 
Consider getting a spouse, friend, relative, neighbor, co-worker, to give you a second opinion on color of your toilet is white or “bone”?

SEND ME  PIECE OF YOURS FOR UNDER $3 UPS TO IDENTIFY COLOR MATCH
 
In 10 years of collecting and selling lids I have discovered selling colors can be difficult at best. Especially when it comes to selling colors in the "bone" family.
Bone toilets have many different names by different companies such as almond, biscuit, beige, linen, cream, bisque, tan, sand, etc.
Photos of these colors can look very much the same.
In fact if you take your lid in 6 different rooms of your house or outside or with or without a flash it can look 6 different colors.
It is difficult to impossible to find accurate color charts that fall into the hands of both buyer and seller so agreeing on a color through email or phone is tricky.
If you buy a lid and it is not a color match and you want a return for refund it is going to cost me $20 initially to send you the lid and  then cost you $20 to send it back.
There is one way I have found to eliminate that waste. If you send me a small piece of yours in the mail for under $3 through UPS, then I can then tell if a match or not. If it is a match I will drop price $3 when you purchase.

Which “BONE” color is your toilet? You likely don’t know because you don’t have all the colors with matching charts. Even charts are deceiving because they are on paper and not made of shiny porcelain.
As you can see there are many possibilities of what color your toilet is.
Photos of colored toilet tanks, lids, or bowls can be deceiving, so do not buy an item based only on the “appearance” of color in the photo or the color name used in the title of the listing.
Ever been to Walmart and seen 30 televisions on the same channel showing a person who looks a different color on all 30 screens? Same thing with photos of toilets.
A toilet photo’d in 6 different rooms of a house will look 6 different colors in photos. I’ve done it!
 
Most customers want an an exact match on color.
There is only one way I have found to make an exact match on color and eliminate expensive shipping back and forth. Send me a small piece of yours in the mail for about $3, I can then tell if a match in color of yours and mine or not. If a match I will drop the price $3 for you before you purchase the item.
 
Some customers don’t have a piece to ship in the mail. Well, beware, if you buy a colored item without sending a color chip and it arrives and does not color match, and you want to return it for a refund, you will have to pay return shipping (not cheap) and return the fragile item in the same condition.
