Should You Buy a Bidet or a Washlet?

For some of us, the bathroom is the one place in your home where you can get a bit of alone time. So why not make it as inviting, luxurious and hygienic as you can? More and more, homes across the United States are ditching toilet paper and opting for bidets and Washlets.

What’s the difference between a bidet and washlet?

While a bidet is a separate stand-alone fixture and a washlet is a toilet seat with bidet features, both are used for rectal and genital cleaning. Not only is the Washlet more user-friendly, but it’s also a space saver, too! So, if you are looking for a more spa-like bathroom experience, here are just some of the benefits you’ll get when upgrading to the Toto Washlet or a bidet:

Benefits of Bidets & Washlets

  1. Ease of use. Bidets and washlets are user-friendly. You can expect smooth and seamless installation, adjustable settings for water temperature and drying – and some are even remote controlled! With Toto Washlets, the toilet seat automatically opens and closes, and there is even a nightlight.
  2. Increased Hygiene. Let’s face it, your toilet paper can only go so far. Not only does the variety of spray options and temperatures leave you cleaner, but many also come with a self-cleaning toilet bowl option, too!
  3. Luxury with Every Sit. Washlets in particular provide a specific benefit: no more cold toilet seats on cold nights, thanks to options with heated seats, and variable heat settings too!
  4. Eco-Friendly and Cost Effective. When you upgrade to a Washlet or Bidet, you can stop with the wads of toilet paper and extra flushes. Since there will be no need for the large pack of toilet paper anymore, it’s a cost-effective and eco-friendly choice that has been adopted in many European countries and Japan.

So if you are tired of continually sitting down in the bathroom to find no toilet paper, looking to upgrade your bathroom plumbing [1] and experience, or simply looking to use fewer paper products and do your part to protect the environment — a Toto Washlet or bidet is right for you!
