5 Reasons to Install a Bidet in Your Bathroom

For some people, a bidet is an essential part of the bathroom and they can’t imagine their life without one of these fixtures. For other people, the sight of a bidet only makes them puzzled and perplexed. If you belong to the second category, a bidet is probably not part of your home. However, you would be surprised to know all the reasons why it actually should be. So, here are 5 reasons to install a bidet in your bathroom right now and enjoy lifelong benefits.

Improved hygiene

We all know that the best way to clean something is with water. But then why do we keep turning to dry toilet paper after using the bathroom? Toilet paper is not effective in itself, and by using only that, we don’t nearly get rid of all the bacteria on our behind. After using a bidet, you will feel much cleaner and fresher. This can be a life-changer for anyone but especially for women who have to deal with their period every month.

Better comfort

The fact that you will be much cleaner using a bidet already adds so much to your comfort levels, but there’s even more to it. No matter how soft toilet paper might be, you still need to rub it against your skin and it’s more than obvious that it can lead to irritation. Not to mention that toilet paper is bleached, which means that your skin will come into contact with various chemicals.

A modern bidet is not only gentle when cleansing your sensitive body parts, but you can also set the temperature to be just right, making the whole experience even more comfortable. If the bidet of your choice even has a dryer and massager function, your life will never be the same.

Health benefits

One of the most important benefits of using bidets comes down to our most important asset – our health. There are so many ways in which bidets can positively contribute to your health and well-being. First of all, as mentioned, a bidet will be more effective in removing the bacteria from your behind, thus helping prevent infections that women are especially exposed to.

Wiping can also be problematic with irritable skin and hemorrhoids, which can only be aggravated by harsh toilet paper – cleaning with water will be a much gentler option for people with these issues. In addition to all of this, people with mobility issues, elderly people and even pregnant women will find it a relief that they can clean themselves effectively even if they cannot fully reach behind. So, it is more than clear that taking care of your health and using a bidet go hand in hand

Renovation is always a good idea

Whether you are planning to sell your home in the future or it’s just a slight possibility, it would be in your best interest to make every renovation worth your while in returns. Given that the bathroom is not only the room that sees the most use in an average home but it’s also often the major selling point when the time comes to put your home on the market, renovating your space and equipping it with a bidet might just be the thing that will convince your future buyers. The mere presence of a bidet makes your bathroom feel more luxurious.

You will save money in the long run

All in all, a bidet is not an expensive fixture in itself. For a few hundred dollars, you can buy a bidet seat that is attached to your existing toilet and start enjoying the benefits immediately. But this is not the only fact that makes bidets a good investment. Consider all the toilet paper you use on a daily basis. Using a bidet instead will seriously cut down on your toilet paper use, which not only saves you money but is also better for the environment. If you add up all the money you spend weekly on toilet paper, it becomes evident that a bidet pays for itself in quite a short time.

As you can see, a bidet is a wonderful invention that more people should be using. Installing one is a fairly affordable project, so why not bring all the aforementioned benefits into your home?
