Bidets can upgrade the look of your bathroom, as well as provide you with an exceptional wash each time you use the bathroom. Bidets have been a common bathroom fixture in other countries for years. In recent years, there has been a growing trend in homeowners interested in installing these fixtures to their plumbing systems. A bidet provides a consistent clean that requires minimal use of toilet paper. This is great for those interested in home additions that increase sustainability and decrease our impact on the environment.
How a Bidet Works
A bidet is a fixture that is used to clean up your bottom after using the toilet. They come in many styles, but the most common bidets work as an attachment to your toilet. This usually involves at least two knobs that control angle and water pressure. It involves a targeted stream of water that is both gentle and easy to use. Depending on the model, it essentially cuts down or eliminates the need to use toilet paper.
Exploring Your Options
One of the most recent and user-friendly innovations of the bidet has been a seat cover. We can add it to your existing toilet so you can enjoy the hygienic benefits while helping out the environment. It is a nozzle attachment in your bathroom that pulls out and sprays beneath you, and then goes back inside the attachment when you are not using it. Some models even have integrated water heaters. Bidet options include great extras such as air dryers and night lights.
