5 Different Kind of Bidets

Bidets are a healthier, more hygienic alternative to toilet paper that uses water to clean you after you use the toilet. While they’re popular in Asia and much of Europe, many people in the U.S. either haven’t heard of them or are hesitant to start using them. Bidet users agree, though, that making the switch is worth it. So what are your options when it comes to getting a bidet?

Stand-Alone Bidets

This traditional style of bidet has been around for centuries, and you’ll likely come across one on vacation in Europe or Asia. Stand-alone bidets are separate appliances that look like shallow toilets, and they require separate plumbing fixtures for installation. While this style doesn’t fit within most modern bathroom layouts and can be a bit of a hassle to use, it can make a great addition to your bathroom should you choose.

Bidet Sprayers

Bidet sprayers are a simple choice with several features that make them popular. These bidets are essentially spray hoses that attach to your toilet. Many people choose bidet sprayers because they offer greater control over the angle and pressure of the water. They’re also affordable and easy to install, making them a great choice for the savvy DIYer’s next project.

Toilet Seat Bidets

If a stand-alone bidet is a hassle, a bidet toilet seat is a luxury. This bidet, also known as a combo toilet, is built into your toilet seat to provide easy, convenient cleaning. Modern bidet toilet seats offer a myriad of features that other bidet styles don’t have, from heated seats to warm air dryers and extensive water pressure controls. 

If you’ve ever heard of crazy Asian toilets that play music, you’ve heard of bidet toilet seats. Don’t worry, though — you don’t have to have a toilet that sings to you!

Bidet Attachments

Not ready for a built-in bidet? Most Americans aren’t. That’s why the most popular bidet in the U.S. is the bidet attachment. This piece of equipment attaches directly under your existing toilet seat to transform your regular toilet into a bidet. While these bidets don’t have the same variety of features that a combo toilet has, they’re affordable, provide the same health benefits and get the job done.

Portable Bidets

Travel, or portable, bidets are perfect for anyone who is always on the go. This is a popular choice for hikers and those who simply wish to take their bidet with them in public restrooms. In addition, portable bidets can be a must for those who can’t use toilet paper due to hemorrhoids or other reasons.

What kind of bidet should I get?

In the end, your choice depends on your individual needs and wants. Bidets attachments, toilet seats and sprayers are the most popular choices, and they’ll all do a great job of keeping you clean. After that, you’ll need to choose whichever one works best for you.

The response from Gotelli Plumbing was excellent. The next time Tom arrived right on time and the quality of his work was outstanding. When he finished he walked me through everything he had done and I could not have been more pleased with the results. I’m so thankful to have such professionals available when need and on such short notice.

Excellent Service

Tom provided excellent service. He is obviously experienced- and quickly solved the problem. Our gas had to be shut off, so we were without our stove to cook, furnace to heat and hot water. Our home is happy again!
