to your current bathroom without a complete overhaul probably isnít possible. Enter the bidet
seat. There are several models available, hereís how to choose the one for you:Price
Do some research and figure out your desired price range. Certain features are available at certain price points, so this can narrow your search immediately.
Decide what extras you want in your seat. Some feature heated water, heated seats, temperature settings, water pressure controls, soft-closing seats, and other items. Your price range may rule out some features, so itís best to make a list of must-haves.
There are two factors that will help determine which bidet seat is right for you: your toilet configuration and the seat type.
Configuration: Toilets come in two standard configurations: One piece and two piece. The one piece configuration means that the toilet bowl and tank are in one piece, while the two-piece version means the tank and bowl are separate pieces. There are generally more choices for a 2-piece toilet.
Shape: Next, determine if your seat is round or elongated. A round bowl will measure about 16.5 inches from the center of the two mounting holes. An elongated bowl measures 18.5.
Color: The last consideration is color. Most bidet seats come in a white or off-white (bisque) color.
