Updating Your Small Bathroom With A Toilet-Seat Bidet

smallbathroomRenovating your bathroom?  It’s a great time to change up your bathroom’s looks, with all sorts of options in fixtures and decorations available today.  Even without a large space available, you can fix up your bathroom to foster as much luxury and comfort as you desire with the right choice in modern amenities.

When researching possible makeovers you can perform on your bathroom, you will likely come across the suggestion of installing a bidet.  Combining comfort, function and water conservation in a single fixture, every modern bathroom should come with one.

However, European style bidets, which require installing a separate washer basin, isn’t the most practical for small bathrooms.  The space it takes up will have to eat into other areas of the washroom – potentially affecting the size of your shower area and sink.

Instead of foregoing the creature comforts and unique benefits of this fixture, though, you can opt for a toilet seat bidet.  Requiring no more space than you already have, you can simply install it in place of your current toilet seat, providing all the same benefits without taking up extra room.

If you have the funds for it, spring for a high-end toilet seat bidet, which comes with all the luxury and opulence you can desire from a bathroom amenity.  Think about it: heated seats, warm water spray, hot air dryer, seat sensors, remote controlled seat covers and all sorts of other brilliant functions.  Isn’t that what every modern bathroom should offer?

Hand-Held Bidets Versus Toilet Seat Bidets

While toilet seat bidets have been the most popular choice among people looking to install these toilet paper replacements, hand-held bidets have been coming up in prominence as market alternatives.  How well do these hand-controlled sprayers perform compared to their seat-fitted counterparts?


The main selling point for hand-held bidets have always been the ease by which they allow you to control the direction of the water.  Instead of having to do the “Dirty Boogie” or any similar motion, you can freely move the device around the area that needs to be cleaned.  You can use it to jet the water out front or from behind, without much restrictions on angles and positioning.


While hand-held bidet manufacturers tout its convenient use, it’s actually a bit harder to clean with one in tow than a regular toilet seat rig.  When cleaning your posterior, for instance, you may need to get up from the seat a bit to allow the device to slip through.  I, personally, find it a more awkward posture than having to wiggle around when using a  typical toilet seat bidet.   Additionally, having to reach out for a separate device actually makes it extra work, compared to the single-push convenience of a seat-installed bidet.


Personally, I think hand-held bidets are great for washing.  If they allow high water pressure, you can even use them as an alternate hose when cleaning your bathroom.  However, they do take up extra space and, with a hanging water hose, isn’t the safest to have lying around.  Also, if you enjoy having plenty of features on your bidet, such as hot water or warm air dryer, a toilet seat model should easily provide it.

Toilet Seat Bidets Versus European-Style Bidets

My first experience using a toilet seat bidet is in a hotel in the Far East.  Asian bidets, unlike their European counterparts, are usually attachments that are put in place of where the toilet seats used to be.  With tight space always seeming to be a major consideration in that part of the world, the tack-on design made a lot of sense.

While I find great value in separate bidets, I’ve always been partial to the toilet seat attachment variety and recommend it to everyone who asks me about installing one in their bathrooms.  There are plenty of good reasons why an add-on bidet is better idea for majority of homeowners.

1. It’s cheaper

With fewer materials and less plumbing work needed to install them, toilet seat bidets are hands-down the more economical choice.  With recent advancements in these low-cost bidets, there isn’t really that much of a difference in the amount of cleaning they can facilitate.  As long as you know how to work your body for a thorough wash, you’ll be good.

2. Less space requirements

The space that a separate bidet will take can easily be used for other fixtures like a towel hanger or just additional legroom.  Unless you live in a million-dollar home with plenty of space to spare, an attachment bidet should give you the same functions without leaving your bathroom a little too crowded for comfort.

3. Installs fast

A toilet seat bidet can be installed and tested within a few hours, requiring little in the way of extra work.  Those separate bidets with their own basin can require an entire day to outfit, requiring new plumbing, drains and more.  Put those two options side by side and the choice isn’t really that hard, is it?
