Putting aside false shame, let’s talk about the most delicate plumbing item – the bidet. Varieties and order of prices of a particular model, a description of their device are given in the review. Having studied it, you can easily decide on the choice of a device for intimate hygiene.
Division by cost
The plumbing market is usually divided into three price segments: economy class, middle class and luxury. Inexpensive options are bidets of Czech, Polish, Chinese and Russian manufacturers, costing from 3800 to 5500 rubles.
The middle price segment includes products of Italian, French, Finnish, Swedish, Spanish and Turkish companies, the bidet of which will cost you from 8,000 to 18,000 rubles.
Expensive elite plumbing fixtures are produced by plumbing companies in Austria and Germany, prices for their hygiene devices vary from 25,000 to 150,000 rubles.
From the history of the question: old options
In the 18th century in France, a small bath, installed on a stand or on 4 legs, was called a “bidet”. Following the French, the Russian nobles got themselves a similar invention, but the bidet did not gain much popularity in Russia..
Bidet by mounting method
The bidet is a ceramic bowl with a mixer connected to hot and cold water and an outlet with a drain. At first glance, the models differ from each other only in design and mounting type.
Floor-standing bidets differ from wall-mounted bidets in an easier installation method. The floor-standing bidet includes a siphon, mixer, cover, waste valve and anchors. Moreover, floor models of the same class from the same manufacturer cost 3-4% more than mounted ones..
The list of advantages of wall-mounted bidets is much wider than that of floor-mounted bidets – these are compact dimensions, ease of cleaning due to the design, and, of course, the relevance of design.
The disadvantage of mounted models is the need to use an installation system.
Bidet options with and without seat and cover: prices
The ceramic bidet bowl is usually cold, but together the bidet lid and seat are the exception. Appliances with seats and covers are found in few plumbing manufacturers, while retail prices for popular models are about 6,000-9,000 rubles higher than for a bidet without additional accessories.
On the Russian market, consumers are offered bidets either with lids:
or with a seat, and the latter option is in great demand among buyers:
Price depending on the material of manufacture: bidet made of sanitary ware and porcelain
Like all plumbing fixtures, bidets are made from sanitary ware and porcelain. The production technology of a porcelain device is more expensive, so such a bidet is much more expensive..
The production of sanitary ware is constantly being improved, for example, an innovation is the creation of a “dirt-repellent” coating. Usually bidets with such a coating cost 3,000-5,000 rubles more than without it.
Two in one: shower toilet
When there is not enough space in the bathroom, but you want to equip it with everything you need, install a candy bar or shower toilet. Manufacturers offer a variety of models, from the simplest with a small shower:
up to expensive ones costing up to 265,000 rubles, equipped with washing and drying systems:
Space deficit: bidet cover
Also, an option with a shortage of space in the bathroom is to install a bidet cover that looks like a regular cover, but with a water supply pipe. The bidet cover is a universal device and fits any toilet model. Manufacturers offer modifications with electronic control, operating from a 220 V network with a hairdryer and a water heater, a small control unit is located on the side of the toilet. When turned on, a small tube comes out from under the lid, supplying water.
Electronic models can be purchased for 15,000 rubles, but depending on the complexity of the device, the price can rise to 80,000 rubles. Cheap models cost 3000-5000 rubles.
Mini bidet: cost
Mini-bidet is a narrow plastic plate with a mixer at the end, which can be installed on a toilet bowl of any modification.
A mini-bidet costs from 3000 to 8000 rubles.
Popular solution: hand-held hygienic shower near the toilet
Another way to solve the problem of a small bathroom area is a hygienic shower installed near the toilet. This budget option will cost you (depending on the manufacturer) from 1,000 to 20,000 rubles.
And if you do not stop taking care of personal hygiene on a hike or during a multi-day car trip, then plumbing manufacturers offer hiking bidet options for you. This pleasure will cost from 2,000 to 5,000 rubles.
