The summer vacation season is officially upon us. The kids are out of school, the sun is shining and people everywhere are planning to get away for a little rest and relaxation. Besides getting away from the daily grind for a little while, many summer travelers are also looking to enjoy a few new experiences during their vacation. While sampling new foods from the local cuisine, exploring breathtaking views and splashing in pools and beachside waters are all hallmarks of summer vacation, there is another new experience some tourists will likely encounter this summer: using a bidet toilet seat!
We’ll admit most folks aren’t thinking about bidet seats while they plan their summer getaways. But hotels and resorts are thinking about them more and more as they look to add amenities to provide their guests with the most comfortable and enjoyable stay possible. Here at bidetsPLUS, we have had many enthusiastic customers contact us after encountering a bidet toilet seat for the first time while traveling, and now they are curious about adding bidet toilet seats to their own bathrooms. And they are very happy when they realize how easy it is to install our electronic bidet seats on their existing toilets at home.
Many international travelers find electronic bidet seats as the norm rather than the exception in several countries throughout Asia as well as Europe and parts of South America. Visitors to Japan, for example, will encounter bidet toilet seats not only in hotels and homes but also in restaurants and other public restrooms. The country is even using their proliferation of bidet toilet seats as a way to promote tourism leading up to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Of course, you need not travel outside the US to find bidet toilet seats. One of America’s biggest vacation spots, Las Vegas, boasts a number of hotels up and down the famous Vegas Strip that feature bidet seats in their bathrooms. There are also a number of resorts and hotels that have upgraded their rooms with bidet seats in popular family destinations like Orlando and Hawaii. You can find them if you’re staying in a chic hotel in New York City, or if you’re relaxing in a rustic cabin in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. In fact, many luxury hotels looking to outdo their competitors are making bidets almost commonplace at popular destinations giving more people the opportunity to find out first-hand about the benefits of cleaning with a bidet toilet seat.
The best thing about bidet toilet seats is that they aren’t just a luxury item only available to vacationers and jet-setters. The easy do-it-yourself installation of our modern bidet toilet seats makes it easy to add a bit of luxury and comfort to your own bathroom without spending thousands of dollars. With bidet seats cutting down toilet paper consumption, the money saved on toilet paper over the years can actually outweigh the cost of a new bidet seat. You can check out our variety of bidet seats and compare features on our comparison chart to find a seat to turn your bathroom into your own personal everyday getaway!
Anyone who has gone through the home-buying or home-selling process has probably been told that the two areas that can most increase a home’s value are the kitchen and the bathroom. So it makes sense that the most common places being renovated in the home are these two rooms. And if you’ve been thinking about getting a bidet toilet seat to upgrade your bathroom, then you should note that besides adding some value and comfort to your commode, installing a bidet seat can actually save you money. So we like to think of the bidet toilet seat as the bathroom upgrade that pays for itself.
Even if you’re not thinking about remodeling your bathroom, knowing that a bidet can help save money over time definitely makes it an investment worth considering. The most obvious way in which an electronic bidet seat can save money is in toilet paper consumption. Using a bidet seat can reduce the use of toilet paper by 75%. With many bidet seats equipped with warm air dryers, toilet paper is often only used as a method to dry off residual moisture. If an average family of four spends around $220 a year on toilet paper (see our blog post on a Consumer Reports article on toilet paper costs), then cutting that cost by 75% saves you almost $1,000 over six years! With the average bidet seat lasting seven years or longer, it’s obvious that installing a bidet toilet seat really can pay for itself and then some.
Our bidetsPLUS bidet infographic has a lot of great information about the costs of toilet paper, and it was recently referenced in a Huffington Post article that mentions bidet toilet seats as a great way for businesses to save money. We may not be there yet, but it might not be long before most Americans have a bidet at home as well as one at the office. And since washing with a bidet is more hygienic and more comfortable than dry toilet paper, perhaps an office with a bidet toilet seat is an office with happier, more productive employees. At the very least they will feel cleaner and use less toilet paper, and as our infographic shows less toilet paper is definitely a good thing for the pocket book and the environment.
Another less obvious way in which bidet seats can help save money is in plumbing costs. Clogged toilets are a headache that nobody likes. Sometimes a plunger will fix the problem, but other times a plumber is needed. Excessive toilet paper being flushed down the toilet is a prime culprit in many clogs (and bad for septic systems). Similarly, there have been many problems with clogs and sewage issues related to the use of wet wipes as noted in our previous article. Bidet seats reduce the risk of plumbing costs from clogged toilets by reducing the amount of paper debris being used.
Installing a bidet is a great way to save some money in the long run, but the reason why so many people are upgrading their bathrooms with these seats is for the health and hygiene benefits that come from washing with water. Whether in the midst of remodeling your home or just looking for a cleaner way to wash, adding a bidet toilet seat to your home will add value at every level.
