Some people use a bidet because of its hygiene and comfort benefits. However, these toilets are also useful for people with mobility issues and seniors who need extra help using a toilet.
If you're interested in adding a bidet to a bathroom, then you don't have to install a separate unit. You can simply add a bidet seat to an existing toilet. What are the benefits of taking this route?
1. Get a Full Range of Bidet Benefits
A bidet seat turns a regular toilet into a bidet for anyone who wants or needs this kind of toilet wash. You simply switch your regular seat for a bidet model and then plumb it in or set it up.
The seat adds a lot of different features to a toilet. For example, you can enjoy a range of water cleaning actions at different temperatures and in different positions. You can use a warm air drying function and even have the system heat the seat for you before you sit down. Additional benefits include deodorizing and water purifying features.
If you go with an electronic model, then the bidet is also easy to operate. Some seats come with remote controls. You may well get more benefits from a seat than you would with a regular stand-alone bidet.
2. Use Your Existing Toilet
You need space in your bathroom to install a stand-alone bidet. This appliance traditionally sits next to your toilet.
If your bathroom is small or if you're finding it hard to juggle things around to find space for a bidet, then a seat is the perfect solution. You simply use your current toilet to create a bidet option. So, you won't lose space; everything is contained in one convenient appliance.
3. Add a Little Useful Height
Bidet seats tend to add a little extra height to a toilet. If you go for an electronic model, then you have to factor in some housing for the system's parts. This doesn't make things uncomfortable for regular toilet users; however, the extra height might help people with mobility issues.
It is easier for older and less mobile people to get on and off a toilet if the toilet is higher than the norm. So, tall bidet toilet seats are worth considering if you have someone at home who needs extra help.
