The Luxurious Bathroom Addition

The bidet, a luxurious bathroom addition that is often misunderstood. Dating back centuries, the bidet has been something of a grey area in bathrooms, but as bathrooms are designed to luxurious standards, the bidet is making a comeback.

The bidet has been gracing bathrooms around the world for many years and has increased in popularity the last few years. In many cases they have been installed for show, a luxurious edge on a bathroom design.

What many don’t know is that the simple bidet is a hygienic choice for any bathroom. The ideal solution for the elderly and is also known to be a must for those who suffer from urinary tract infections.

While the bidet may just become an item on show in your luxury bathroom, it’s not as simple as all that. Bidets have taps and you need to choose your bidet taps with care. You want them to blend in with all your other fixtures and fittings in the space, complement the bathroom and maybe even become the wow statement you were hoping to achieve.

Bidet taps are simple, they are a single tap with a level to manage the water pressure and temperature. The spout is somewhat different from a regular tap in that you can move it to the direction you want it to flow.

The CU Series Bidet Mixer is a fantastic choice for the modern bathroom where you have already chose square taps and products for your bathroom. These bidet taps are square in design, very stylish and will blend in beautifully with your current design. The only cylindrical part on this bidet tap is the spout, which you can move as you wish.

The PL Series is a cylindrical design. It’s a modern and stylish design finished in gleaming chrome to complement any bathroom design. A single level manages water pressure and temperature and again the spout can be moved to direct water flow.

Then there is the AR Series, also modern bidet taps. These are cylindrical in design to complement any modern or traditional bathroom. These bidet taps also give you control of the direction of the water flow with a lever that manages temperature and pressure.

Remember that you want everything to blend in together when designing your bathroom. If you have chosen straight lines, such as squares and rectangles from your bathroom products to taps, the you want a square designed bidet tap to bring the design together and give your bathroom a sophisticated finish.

What You May Never Have Known About The Bidet

I remember the first apartment I rented had a bidet in the bathroom and while I knew what it was, I really wasn’t sure why it was there. In these modern times we shower or bath on a daily basis and keep a good personal hygiene, so the bidet in my bathroom was somewhat of a mystery.

This got me thinking and with a bit of research I found out some interesting things about this white toilet looking item in my bathroom with a tap attached. Bidets originated in France way back in the early 1700’s. There are still disputes over who actually came up with the idea, but from what I can understand it was a regular site in the wealthier homes in France in those days.

Back then personal hygiene was a bath once a week, can you imagine? The thought is horrific, but back then it was common and the bidet was a bowl of water that they would use to splash water to keep their “parts” clean.

The bidet then evolved slightly and would be placed in beautifully designed wooden units, some finished in velvet for complete comfort and the stream of water was used instead of toilet paper.

Strangely enough bidets were placed in the bedroom and moved to the bathroom when indoor plumbing came into the home. I can only say I am so grateful I was born in a world where we already had indoor plumbing and bathing is a daily occurrence.

The Bidet Today

Today the bidet is a popular addition to any bathroom and they have grown in popularity throughout the world. They are popular because of their personal hygiene advantages and are often included in bathrooms for senior citizens and those with bowel problems.

When fitting a bidet into your bathroom you do need to pay attention to your bathroom design, choose your bidet and bidet taps to blend in with the rest of your bathroom décor. If you want to feel like a wealthy French man from the 1700’s then the bidet is a must for your bathroom.

Bidet taps are available in a choice of designs, each one fitted with a tap that can be moved around with ease. The single lever design of these bidet taps makes them stylish and elegant and a welcome design in any bathroom.
