If there is a room in your home where you spend some time every day it most certainly is the bathroom. The bathroom is equipped with all kinds of essentials to help you improve your daily hygiene but not everyone has a bidet. Here we will look into the bidet converter and handheld bidet sprayer. But first, there are several different types of bidets that are each a great choice depending on your needs and budget.
Some of the more popular types of bidets are:
- Stand-Alone Bidets
- Spray Bidets or Handheld Bidets
- Toilet Seat or Built-in Bidets (aka: Bidet Converter kit)
- Portable or Travel Bidets
The cost of a stand-alone bidet could cost with installation between $500 and $1,500. If your budget would prefer something more economical you may want to consider a bidet converter or handheld bidet sprayer. The bidet in any form can serve a valuable role in hygiene upkeep and is particularly useful for washing genitals without having to have a full bath or shower.
If you currently do not own a bidet, bidets are like many new items that you may acquire. You probably do not realize how much you needed it until you actually bought one. (Are you old enough to remember what the world was like before cell phones?…Hello!) Here are some of the advantages of owning and using a bidet:
- Save money on toilet paper
- Superior cleansing
- Better for the environment

Using a bidet converter kit
A bidet converter kit is also called a seat bidet. It the toilet rim and hooks up to the bathroom’s plumbing system. This eliminates the need for a separate fixture that sits next to the toilet. This saves space in the bathroom and also removes the need to get up from one device to another to clean yourself.
Using a handheld bidet sprayer
A Handheld bidet sprayer hangs on the wall near the toilet for convenient use. Simply reach over and remove it from the wall and aim it to the desired position to use and squeeze the handle.
Bidet Converter Kit
A bidet converter kit or electric toilet seat is one of the best ways to enjoy a bidet. This is one of the best ways of being able to maintain the proper health and hygiene options in order to keep your “privates” clean and hygienic. A bidet converter is a contraption that is perfect for giving you a bidet in your home, as well as saving space in the process as well. A bidet converter simply attaches to the existing toilet unit by replacing the seat.
There are a few different factors to keep in mind when choosing the perfect bidet converter. You will have to buy a toilet bidet kit that is the same size and shape as the current toilet. Having a bidet is a good improvement for any bathroom for a reasonable cost.
Handheld Bidet Sprayer
A handheld bidet sprayer is slightly different from a bidet converter in that it is a shower nozzle that stays attached to the toilet. A handheld bidet sprayer is very simple to use, you just point and spray, and this makes it a far more accessible and user-friendly option for helping improve hygiene to your private areas. A bidet converter involves more effort in terms of the installation process, whereas a handheld bidet is incredibly simple and straightforward.
Both of them are an excellent addition to any bathroom, and go a long way to improve your overall hygiene.
