If you want the complete bathroom suite you’ll need a bidet. Bidets used to be essential in the 70s, and they still are in many countries, such as Italy, but today you don’t usually see them in UK bathrooms. However, if you have the room, slot in a bidet next to your toilet for an extra washing facility in your bathroom. They are handy for keeping hygienic after using the toilet, as well as washing feet and legs. You can also use bidets to help you wash small children and pets that have got a bit mucky but don’t need a full bath.
You have a number of options when it comes to the style of bidet you choose. Wall hung bidets attach directly to the wall and effectively hover above the ground, so you have a place for feet underneath. Back to wall bidets usually attach to the wall but are rooted to the floor, too. If you’re placing a bidet next to the toilet you’ll probably want it to match. When choosing your bathroom suite you’ll usually have the option of a matching bidet in the same materials and style. If you’ve already picked out the rest of your suite then you can go back to the manufacturer to see if they make a matching bidet, or shop for another one that will fit in neatly with your suite. Most bidets will be white porcelain but you can find different shapes and pick out different style taps in order to make your bidet fit in with the rest of your bathroom fixtures and decor.
