Bidet Buyer's Guide

Shopping for a new bidet for the first time can be daunting if you don't have all the right information. That's why it's our goal at Premier Bidets to make your purchase experience fun and empowering. We want you to be able to buy with confidence and know that you are making a positive change for yourself and the planet! 

So without further ado let's get into some of the basics of buying a bidet.

Product Options

For electric bidets (which is what we specialize in) you can choose either a:

integrated bidet toilet
  • bidet toilet combos which are traditional style toilets bundled with a compatible bidet toilet seat.

    If you're in the market for a new toilet and you also want a bidet, then an integrated bidet toilet or bidet toilet combo would be the way to go. These replace your existing toilet and act as a luxurious all-in-one unit. 

    Neorest Installation

    Make sure you or a plumber look at the product specification sheet and verify your rough-in and other dimensions to make sure a TOTO Neorest will fit in your bathroom first, before ordering. 

    Bidet Seat Installation

    If you love your current toilet but want to add a bidet, then a bidet toilet seat would be your best option. Bidet toilet seats are the easiest option to install as they just require swapping your current toilet seat, adding an additional water line and plugging into electricity. 

    A compatible toilet, easily accessible water source and electrical outlet are some of the main things to consider when you're shopping for a bidet seat. 

    If you're looking for a bidet but don't have a practical option for electricity, our non-electric bidet attachments are what you're looking for. These fit underneath your current toilet seat. You simply remove your seat, attach the bidet, then re-attach your toilet seat and hook up your water source and you're done.  

    Bidet Seat Fit Guide

    Virtually all bidet toilet seats will fit with the standard one or two-piece toilet. If this is your type, then you just need to determine whether your toilet bowl is elongated or round

    Round-sized toilets are 16.5" in total length, while elongated are 18.5" in total length. All of the bidet seats we sell provide information about which kind of toilet bowl size they'll fit.

    For one-piece toilets your options are a bit more limited. Depending on the shape of your toilet, certain bidet seats may not fit. 

    If the bowl remains relatively flat and meets the toilet tank at close to a 90 degree angle, a bidet seat should be able to fit. If the tank is curved and meets the bowl on a slope known as a "french curve" then some of our bidet seats may not fit. 

    toilet with french curve

    The Cascade 3000 and Eco-NOVA will both fit one and two-piece toilets as well as some toilets with a french curve.

    If you have any questions, just give us a call at 707-297-3991 or send us a picture of your current toilet at info@premierbidets.com and we'll help you out.

    Features and price

    Bidet seats and integrated bidet toilets vary in price based mainly on the available features.

    Let's separate the bidets we sell into categories by feature:

    Instant warm water spray, self cleaning and self sterilizing nozzles, deodorizing systems, heated seats, air drying and remote controls are just some of the soothing features you'll have at your fingertips.

    Some bidets have hot water line attachments that heat up as they're used while others have their own integrated water heating units providing instantaneous hot water spray. 

    Picking the right bidet might come down to deciding how much you're willing to pay to have some or all of those kinds of features. Electric bidet seats start at around $200. 

    The most expensive bidet toilet we sell is upwards of $10,000, so there's a bit of price difference in-between.
